Os/White Sox lineups and pregame tidbits

*Buck Showalter said the Orioles will give struggling reliever Jason Berken a day or two off to help freshen him up.
*Luke Scott is off today, which is good considering he’s got a head cold. Showalter said the feeling is they can just knock most of that congestion out today.
*The team has discussed going back to 12 pitchers and adding a bench player. If Guthrie pitches well that will come on the roadtrip, and could come as soon as after the game.  You’d think Armando Gabino would be the one to go given that Troy Patton is now the long man, but they could just as easily option Patton to Norfolk to give him more consistent innings.
