Orioles/Pirates lineups and pregame tidbits

*Manager Buck Showalter said there’s a 50-50 chance Brian Roberts gets into a game this weekend. Roberts will do some soft toss and tee work today at the team’s complex and could take live batting practice as soon as today, depending on how he feels.

*Derrek Lee is in a similar schedule as Roberts. He is slated to take batting practice off coach Mike Bordick today.

*Koji Uehara will pitch another bullpen and could throw again on Monday’s off day. Jeremy Guthrie will pitch that day to stay on schedule against the Twins Minor Leaguers. There could be a few other guys throwing that day as well.

*Kevin Gregg is tentatively scheduled to throw two innings in a Minor League game on Friday. 

*Craig Tatum is feeling better and is going to do some running and throwing today. He’s been sidelined with some tightness in his right oblique.  

*And finally, Justin Duchscherer will continue to rest today. Showalter said he’s another day or two away from throwing.

*Expect the second round of cuts in the day or two as well. The coaches will have a meeting tomorrow afternoon so it could be as soon as Friday.

*Pitching coach Mark Connor will accompany Zach Britton to his Minor League game today. Britton will go five innings to stay on turn.
