The New York Mets will send set-up man Sean Green to the mound to start the exhibition opener against Orioles on Wednesday at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. The Cardinals will start Kyle Lohse on Thursday and also have scheduled Chris Perez, Jess Todd, Brad Furnish, Chris Manning and Ian Ostlund to pitch in that game.
Bonus Mets update: Pitcher Tim Redding, who was one of the pitchers the Orioles pursued in the free agent market, has been shelved temporarily with what the team describes as minor discomfort in the back of his shoulder.
