Game Today

The Grapefruit League kickoff is today against the Orioles.

The Marlins will send Dontrelle Willis to the mound, where he will be opposed by Rodrigo Lopez.

Dontrelle is slated to throw 3 innings or 60 pitches, whichever comes first.

This will be Cabrera's first exhibition game with the Marlins this season.  Miguel was held out of the game with the Hurricanes because the college sluggers where using aluminum bats and Joe didn't want to take any chances.

After the game Willis and maybe Cabrera will be joining their national teams for the WBC.  The reason I said "maybe Cabrera" is that there are conflicting reports about his departure.  He will either leave after the game or on Friday.  Alfredo Amezaga left last night to join his national team.  Those are the only three Marlins in the WBC - everyone else is staying in camp.

The game is at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, starting at 1:05 p.m.
