Orioles/Tigers lineups and finale tidbits

*Interim manager Juan Samuel said he wasn’t sure if Alfredo Simon would be available in a save situation following last night’s blown save. Simon surrendered a homer to Miguel Cabrera that tied the game, and threw 33 pitches. The O’s will also try to stay away from using David Hernandez.
*Corey Patterson is taking a day off, with Josh Bell as DH instead. Samuel said he’s just trying to keep everyone fresh and Patterson is expected to be back in the lineup for Thursday.
*Brian Roberts told the Scott Garceau show on MASN earlier today that he hopes to get into some games in Sarasota soon and is targeting an Aug. 1 return if all goes well. Given that B-Rob has been saddled by setbacks, I’m not sure how accurate or feasible that return date is, but getting him back into games is certainly a positive sign.
*Brad Bergesen will take the hill for the O’s, who are looking to avoid a sweep…
