The Terps had to make some unexpected changes to their travel roster before heading to Los Angeles. OF Zach Jancarski and LHP Willie Rios (concussion) were unable to make the trip out west. Maryland added RHP Andrew Green to the travel roster after Green did not make the trip to Minneapolis for the Big Ten Tournament. Green has not allowed a run over four and a third innings and will be available in relief this weekend.
