Orioles/Braves lineups and pregame tidbits

*It was Selection Sunday today, and Major League Baseball unveiled the All-Star rosters, which include Orioles catcher Matt Wieters. Adam Jones is also a Final Vote candidate and you can read more about that –including how to cast your vote — on Orioles.com. Full rosters are also up on MLB.com.

*Tuesday’s starter figures to be either Triple-A Norfolk’s Mitch Atkins or Oriole reliever Alfredo Simon.  Chris Tillman is pitchin for the Tides today and Brad Bergesen threw in last night’s game. As for Jason Berken, the Orioles would prefer to keep him out of the bullpen.

Chris Jakubauskas is tenatively slated to start Monday’s opener in Texas, with Jeremy Guthrie scheduled for Wednesday.

*Clay Rapada has elected to stay in the organization and will report to Triple-A Norfolk in the next few days. Rapada was designated for assignment last week and had the option of declaring free agency after he cleared waivers.
