Marlins on the Air, Amezaga Update, Today's Pitchers

       Amezaga           JUPITER -- Great baseball weather here this morning. The breeze is calm for the first time in weeks and the Marlins are out stretching on the back diamond. A few quick notes to get the day rolling:

                 -- Today's game is being broadcast on 790-AM The Ticket. Dave Van Horne and Glenn Geffner are in the booth. Pre-game show starts at 12:50 p.m. with first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m. Ryan Tucker on the mound for the Marlins. Kenji Uehara gets the call for the O's.

                 -- Alfredo Amezaga looks fine and dandy and good to go for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he'll give Amezaga some playing time today. The super sub has been nursing a sore right knee.

                 -- Following Tucker to the mound for the Marlins this afternoon: Scott Proctor, Leo Nunez, Zach Kroenke, Logan Kensing, Dan Meyer and Jason Standridge.

                 -- David Samson will try to slay Goliath on Sunday. The Marlins president has agreed to coach the Washington Generals on Sunday in a continuation of their long-standing rivalry with the Harlem Globetrotters. The Generals haven't beaten the Trotters since 1971 -- more than 12,000 games ago -- when they were known as the New Jersey Reds. Game is 1 p.m. at American Airlines Arena.
