The Lineup Shuffle & Tidbits

Justin Turner got smoked in the left foot by a ball hit by Garrett Atkins during batting practice and was scratched from the original lineup, to be replaced at second base by Blake Davis. Manager Dave Trembley said if Turner feels OK he can enter Friday’s game at the midway point.

Also, Trembley confirmed what I blogged about earlier: Felix Pie and Nolan Reimold will play Saturday’s game in Lakeland. Reimold and Michael Aubrey will split DH duties.

Starter Kevin Millwood could go three innings in Saturday’s game depending on his pitch count.  Slight tweak in the next two days pitching with Saturday’s arms after Millwood including Dennis Sarfate, Matt
Albers, Brandon Erbe, Alberto Castillo and Cla Meredith.

Sunday starter Jeremy Guthrie will be followed by Mark Hendrickson, Kam Mickolio, David
Hernandez and Will Ohman.

Also, Brad Bergesen threw a live batting practice today and will throw another one on Sunday. If all goes well, he could get into a game by Wednesday.

Here’s the updated Orioles lineup:

Adam Jones CF
Robert Andino SS
Nick Markakis RF
Miguel Tejada 3B
Matt Wieters C
Luke Scott DH
Garrett Atkins 1B
Jonathan Tucker LF
Blake Davis 2B

SP Chris Tillman
