Orioles @ Angels lineups and pregame tidbits

*In case you missed it, we’ve had some pregame news this afternoon in Anaheim. Pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada is slated to get an MRA on his left elbow Tuesday in Baltimore and third baseman Josh Bell was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks for a player to be named later. You can read more on Wada here, and more on the Bell trade here.

*Nolan Reimold is out of the lineup again as he continues to deal with neck spasms that have been lingering the past few days. Reimold could barely move his head this afternoon in the clubhouse and said it got progressively worse last night and felt better after post-game treatment. But his neck locked back up overnight, which is frustrating given how well Reimold has hit as of late.

*It was a pretty neat moment this afternoon in the O’s visiting clubhouse with pretty much the entire 25-man roster crowded around the TV to watch  Chicago’s Phil Humber’s perfect game in the ninth. When Humber got it, the players went nuts, cheering and yelling in disbelief. Humber, as you recall, faced the Orioles in his last start. It’s always cool to watch baseball players transform into fans of the game and that’s exactly what happened this afternoon in Anaheim.
