Orioles/A’s series finale

*Orioles first baseman Derrek Lee is expected to be placed on the three-day bereavement list tomorrow to attend his grandfather’s funeral out in California and could technically return Sunday, but probably will not.

Given the state of the bullpen, the Orioles are expected to call up a position player in his place this weekend. Brandon Snyder would appear to be the most logical choice.

*Brian Roberts (concussion-like symptoms) is expected to stop by at some point today. Roberts will take another two weeks of rest before being evaluated again.

*Given the extremely hot temperatures in Baltimore today, the Orioles are taking a shorter batting practice and allowed to wear shorts. Manager Buck Showalter joked that he was pretty popular with the players after that announcement.
