Orioles/Yankees lineups and pregame tidbits

*Brian Matusz threw from 120 feet pain-free today and the plan is for him to get up on the mound on Tuesday. Matusz said he will get more in front of the mound to get some elevation and see how it goes.

*Given last night’s plunking of Russell Martin, manager Buck Showalter acknowledged there might be some retaliation by the Yankees for Josh Rupe’s pitch.

“We’ll deal with it,” Showalter said. ” [It was] self-inflicted.”

However, he stood by Rupe’s claim that the pitch was not intentional.

*The Orioles have discussed the possibility of adding an extra position player and getting rid of another arm, as recently as this morning. Right now, Showalter said there is “nothing imminent” on that front.

Happy Easter! Here are the lineups…
