Orioles/As lineups and pregame tidbits

*Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie is dealing with some right shoulder soreness and will have his next start pushed back a day or two to help alleviate some of the discomfort.

Right now, right-hander Tommy Hunter will throw in Guthrie’s spot on Saturday although Guthrie could throw in the series finale. Lefty Jo-Jo Reyes will start Friday’s game.

The expectation is Zach Britton will throw Monday’s game in Minnesota, although that also lines up as Brian Matusz’s turn so things could change. The O’s will need an extra starter for next weekend’s home series against the Yankees, in which they play five games in four days.
