Orioles @ Yankees lineups and pregame notes

*In case you missed it, the Orioles designated Dana Eveland for assignment on Thursday afternoon, claiming infielder Zelous Wheeler on  waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old Eveland pitched Wednesday and afterward said he felt he was out of the starting rotation competition.  More on that move here.

*J.J. Hardy received a Cortisone injection in his right shoulder Tuesday to help alleviate nagging discomfort in the area, but the shortstop said Thursday that there’s “no chance” he wouldn’t ready to start the season April 6. Hardy took Wednesday completely off and said he will do the same thing on Thursday. He last played in Monday night’s game against the Pirates and said he’s hoping to “get over the hump” and play on Friday. More on that here.

*I’ll be working on some feature stuff during tonight’s game, but Adam Berry will have you covered. You can also followed him on Twitter @adamdberry.
