Orioles/Angels lineup and pregame tidbits

*As expected, David Hernandez (left ankle sprain) is on the DL with Armando Gabino now up here from Triple-A Norfolk. He wasn’t on the team’s 40-man roster, but the trade of Miguel Tejada last week freed up a spot. Hernandez will stay with the team through the homestand and will likely go down to Sarasota after that. He won’t resume throwing for about 7-10 days, given that it’s his landing foot, and will undergo an MRI to make sure there’s no further damage. He was told on a second doctor’s visit that it could be longer than initially thought, and he might not be ready to come off the DL at the 15-day mark.

*Josh Bell is available, but not in the lineup. He left last night’s game with a left hamstring cramp, and new manager Buck Showalter said he could use him if necessary.
*B-Rob is fine and back in the lineup.
