Orioles/Yankees lineup and pregame tidbits

*I’m back on the beat (after missing a few days in Toronto) for what should be a newsy series. Sunday’s Trade Deadline is 4 p.m. ET and the Orioles will also play a doubleheader with the Yankees on Saturday, with both starters –in Zach Britotn and Chris Tillman — here with the team from Double-A and Triple-A, respectively.

There won’t be any roster moves today, but if I had to venture a guess it’d be infielders Josh Bell and Blake Davis being that having four games in 48 hours places a premium on having a stocked up bullpen.

Brad Bergesen and his wife Shea, are also expected to welcome their first child (a son) as early as Saturday, which would likely involved putting Bergesen on the paternity list for a few days and giving the Orioles the ability to keep an extra arm around in the meantime.

*Cesar Izturis is here as well and will work out with the team although he is not expected to be activated until at least Sunday.  If Davis and Bell do get sent out before then, Izturis’ return will likely bump an arm off the 25-man roster.

*Mark Worrell has cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk. Worrell was demoted to make room for Vladimir Guerrero to come off the DL in Toronto.
