Orioles/Yankees lineups and pregame tidbits

*First, the rain is coming down hard and the forecast doesn’t look good. I will keep you updated on that as best as I can.

*The Orioles roster move will not change if Tuesday’s game is rained out. So Brad Bergsen is expected to remain with the team. Right now, the O’s best option is to have an extra arm over an extra bench guy.

*Brian Matusz threw from 60 feet today in extended spring training with no pain and the plan is for him to possibly rejoin the team at th end of the road trip. In that scenario, he would throw a few side sessions under pitching coach Mark Connor and bullpen coach Rick Adair and then go to a few rehab games.

*Justin Duchscherer will have a guided injection in his left hip by Dr. Rozin on Wednesday. The Orioles aren’t going to come right out and say it, but he’s really a ways away.
