This time, it's for real. Brad Miller is back after what sounds like a nasty bout with the stomach flu, and he'll bat 9th. Get ready for lots of narratives about him getting off to a poor start because of all the weight he lost, and they might not be totally off-base.
Today is, for better or worse, your opening day lineup, expected to square off against Jeff Weaver. Lloyd even said as much, which is a miracle given his reluctance to commit to anything. That includes Taijuan Walker, who will continue to try and be 0-fer spring training.
McClendon says today's lineup is likely what he'll use in season opener if Angels, as expected, start RHP Jered Weaver.— Bob Dutton (@TNT_Mariners) March 30, 2015
