Orioles/Mariners lineups and pregame tidbits

*Jason Berken was put on the 15-day DL with right shoulder inflammation, an MRI revelead he has a slight tear in his right labrum and fraying around his rotator cuff. It’s a possibility Berken will be shut down for the whole season, but right now the Orioles aren’t sure. The good news is, the doctors told Berken it isn’t a total tear and they think he can avoid surgery. But given that the O’s are also without David Hernandez, it’s a big blow to the bullpen.

*Rick Vanden Hurk –acquired in the Trade Deadline deal that sent Will Ohman to Miami — was recalled in his place. Vanden Hurk will start off in the bullpen, but could move to start as the O’s young arms start to get up there in terms of innings pitched.
