Orioles/Rays series finale

*Brian Roberts is still dealing with headaches and isn’t in the lineup for the second consecutive game. He is expected to see a doctor in Baltimore on Thursday.
*I blogged earlier about Alfredo Simon’s suspension being reduced to two games. He will start serving that tonight.
*Wondering when the last time Nick Markakis was a DH? Never. This is his first Major League DH start. Manager Buck Showalter was equally surprised.
*Heavy rain is expected for Thursday’s series opener in Detroit, so the Orioles are tentatively talking about doing a doubleheader on Friday, although there’s no word yet on whether it would be back-to-back or a day and night contest with a break. All this, of course, depends on Thursday’s weather and if the game gets called.
