Orioles @ Blue Jays

*Shortstop J.J. Hardy has a cortisone shot in his right shoulder on Tuesday and the hope is he can get back into games by Friday. Hardy, who last played Monday at the Pirates, has been dealing with some discomfort in that area when he throws at game speed.

*Tommy Hunter will pitch in a Minor League game on Sunday. Wei-Yin Chen will start the Orioles’ game.

*Jai Miller is DH’ing in his first game back since being sidelined with a knee injury, while Endy Chavez (groin) remains out. Chavez is not on Thursday’s travel roster so you are looking at Friday at the earliest.

*Orioles manager Buck Showalter said yesterday he was sending an “all-prospect” team to Dunedin and he wasn’t kidding. Here’s the O’s lineup for this afternoon, which has been changed because the Blue Jays changed pitchers from Brett Cecil to Ryan Tepera.
