Orioles/A lineups and pregame tidbits

*As expected, Chris Jakubauskas will get the start tomorrow. The O’s currently have a four-man rotation and Jakubauskas will make a spot start to keep everyone on regular rest. The Orioles don’t need a fifth starter again until June 18.

*Luke Scott is not in tonight’s starting lineup but he wouldn’t be with lefty Gio Gonzalez on the hill. He is feeling better, a day after getting a Cortisone injection in his right shoulder and manager Buck Showalter said Scott would be available to pinch hit.

*Just a reminder that live coverage of the Draft starts on MLB Network at 6 p.m.. The Orioles have the fourth overall pick in the Draft, which is slated to be at approximately 7:25 p.m. You can also keep up to date at Draft Central and by following @MLBDraft on Twitter. And get into the Draft conversation by tagging your tweets with #mlbdraft.

*Pitchers Jake Arrieta and Zach Britton will visit the Under Armour Freedom Bunker at the Under Armour Distribution House to help assemble Wounded Warrior Project Backpacks for injured service members recovering in military hospitals tomorrow. The players, Wounded Warriors and Orioles staff will fill backpacks with Under Armour gear and additional Orioles items as part of the Under Armour Freedom Initiative, developed to honor and support military and public safety officials.
