O's/Twins at Target Field

The Orioles will try to halt a three-game skid tonight, with Brad Bergesen taking the mound opposite Carl Pavano. Not much pregame but here are the tidbits…

*Koji Uehara is here and said he’s ready to go. Manager Dave Trembley said he will use Koji in the later innings, and if Simon was not available (say he pitched a few days in a row) Koji could get the ball in a save situation.
*Asked if there would be a roster shakeup given the team’s poor performance Trembley didn’t say one way or another. “Let’s get through the road trip,” he said.
*Adam Jones was back in the lineup after being scratched with a right hip strain yesterday afternoon. Trembley said if Jones was unavailable he would have slid Nick Markakis over from right given Target Field’s vast outfield.
