O’s/Tigers lineups and pregame tidbits

*Nolan Reimold is batting leadoff tonight for the second time in his career, while Vlad is out of the cleanup spot with Jones taking that slot. The struggling Guerrero, who was not in the lineup yesterday, is batting fifth tonight against the Tigers

*The Orioles made it official today that they purchased the contract of right-handed reliever Willie Eyre from Norfolk and he will take Chris Tillman’s roster spot. He continues to have shoulder discomfort after attempting to throw this week.

*Brian Matusz and Brad Bergesen are the leading candidates to take the spot of Tillman and start on Tuesday

*Brian’s Baseball Bash, Brian Roberts annual charity event, was cancelled today as the Orioles second baseman is still struggling with concussions and trying to work his way back from Sarasota

*Top pitching prospect Dan Klein will see noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lewis Yocum on Monday. He continues to have shoulder discomfort after attempting to throw this week.
