Orioles/Yankees lineups and pregame tidbits

*Brian Matusz said he felt “100 percent” throwing his bullpen session Friday afternoon and expects to start on Monday at Fenway Park.
*Jake Arrieta, who the Os are deciding whether to give another start to, got some precautionary treatment today and said he has to see the team’s doctors to be evaluated. Arrieta did some long toss and said he felt great and it looks right now that manager Buck Showalter will lean toward having Arrieta make that start.
*Triple-A Norfolk interim manager Bobby Dickerson joined the O’s coaching staff on Friday and will be here the rest of the season.
*Third overall pick Manny Machado will be here Saturday to take pregame batting practice. If you missed it yesterday, I talked to Machado and some people who know him best. Story is up here.
*Also, if you are wondering if Robert Andino has ever played third, like he is tonight, he said he did back in his Marlins days. He took some reps there this spring and you have to think if he’s going to be considered for a spot on next year’s squad, the more versatile the better.
