Os/Red Sox lineups and pregame tidbits

*Brian Matusz was named AL Rookie of the Month for August. In six August starts, Matusz went 4-1 with a 2.43 ERA (37.0IP, 10ER).

*Adam Jones and Corey Patterson are not in the starting lineup and both outfielders are pretty banged up. Jones has been dealing with upper back soreness and left last night’s game prior to taking his scheduled at-bat in the seventh, while Patterson has been getting treatment on his neck and shoulder area after crashing into the wall in Chicago and again in Anaheim. Manager Buck Showalter will try to stay away from both of them, with Nolan Reimold getting an outfield start. While Patterson said he could maybe pinch run, Jones is a little more beat up and may be out for another day or two.

*Double-A Bowie outfielder Xavier Avery was added to the Arizona Fall League roster and will join the O’s Scottsdale team.

*Oh, and Jake Arrieta shaved his mustache, which I know is a big deal around here. He also lost a bet with catcher Matt Wieters that he’d keep it til the end of the year and had to fork over some money to him this afternoon.
