More pregame notes and Orioles lineup

*Derrek Lee fouled a ball off his left foot during his first plate appearance on Saturday, and he’s not likely to play Sunday. An X-ray and MRI did show positive results, more info on that here.

*Brian Roberts will get 2-3 at bats today in his first spring game since March 7.

*Zach Britton will throw Tuesday’s game against the New York Yankees with Chris Tillman making a Minor League start. The O’s would prefer to give Britton –who has yet to make a Major League start– more experience in a bigger arena and it’s also his turn since he threw to Class A players the last time out.

*Several relievers will go to Twin Lakes to pitch today: Adrian Rosario, Rick VandenHurk, Jeremy Accardo and Jim Johnson.

*Koji Uehara will pitch in a Minor League game on Tuesday. The team would prefer to control the setting in his first time out, which is why he’s pitching in a Minors game.

*There will be a third round of cuts on Wednesday or Thursday.
