Orioles/Angels lineups & tidbits

*As you can see with the lineup posted below, the Orioles have placed Luke Scott on the disabled list (shutting him down for the season) and have recalled infielder Josh Bell. Scott will wait to get consultations from two experts before deciding whether to undergo surgery or not.

Bell is starting at designated hitter today with third baseman Mark Reynolds originally at DH but said he thought it kept him in the game more to play in the field. Nolan Reimold is also getting a start in left field and Scott’s absence –along  with the decision to recall Bell over outfielder Matt Angle — figures to get him more playing time.

*Cesar Izturis will DH for Bowie tonight and is on schedule to be activated on Tuesday. Vladimir Guerrero got through a successful batting practice pregame and will DH for Bowie tomorrow night. He could be activated as early as Tuesday as well.
