Meanwhile, Baltimore have already announced the nod will go to lefty Tommy Milone. The veteran lefty struggled in Opening Day, but he bounced back admirably with eight strikeouts against the Tampa Bay Rays in his previous start. Either way, the Orioles have one of the weakest lineups in MLB ahead of this season, so the Nationals should be able to take full advantage of that with their strong offense led by Juan Soto and Trea Turner.
