Orioles/Angels lineups and pregame tidbits

*Jeremy Guthrie, who has been dealing with right shoulder soreness, is planning on throwing a bullpen on Sunday, which would slot him back to Tuesday or Wednesday to face Minnesota.

The uncertainty around Guthrie, who was originally tonight’s starter but was pushed back due to the soreness,  is also keeping the rest of the O’s rotation in flux. Beyond Brian Matusz and Zach Britton, who will throw Sunday and Monday, respectively, the Oriole rotation for the rest of the week is still up in the air.

Alfredo Simon is available for emergency use in the bullpen tonight, although Showalter will try to stay away from using him since Simon –right now — is still part of the rotation.

*No word yet on the results of Jason Berken’s MRI, although the plan remains for him to see Dr. Lewis Yocum later today to check out the discomfort in Berken’s right elbow.
