Orioles/Braves lineups

*Cesar Izturis started baseball activities today, while Showalter said Brian Roberts (concussion) had a good day in extended spring and could start hitting in the next few days.

*Mark Reynolds’ name keeps getting floated in the Home Run Derby.  Reynolds — who lives in Arizona — said he’d say yes if Red Sox slugger David Ortiz called and asked him to take part,but he hasn’t heard him from him yet. If Reynolds is asked to do the Derby his batting practice thrower would be Glenn Sherlock, who apparently throws “the best batting practice in the world”.

*Zach Britton was under the weather the last few days,  but manager Buck Showalter confirmed he will start on Sunday. Monday is tentatively scheduled to be Chris Jakubauskas, while Wednesday is Jeremy Guthrie.

Tuesday’s starter is to be determined, and the O’s options include long relievers Jason Berken, Alfredo Simon and Brad Bergesen as well as Triple-A Norfolk’s Mitch Atkins.

*Justin Duchscherer will see team orthopedist Dr.  John Wilckens on the 11th.
