Orioles @ Red Sox lineups and pregame tidbits

*Boston scratched Will Middlebrooks, who was dealing with a tight hamstring, and their new lineup is below.

*Not much pregame names for the Orioles. To reiterate last night’s news that the Orioles are close to bringing back Miguel Tejada, the veteran infielder will report to Sarasota’s extended spring camp for a physical Monday and will work out before the two sides officially agree on a deal.  Manager Buck Showalter said the first step for Tejada is obviously to pass the physical and didn’t comment much further, saying he pays more attention to the active team.

*Down in extended spring, Zach Britton (left shoulder impingement) threw a three-inning simulated game, going 47 pitches, and he remains on track to throw his first game in extended on Thursday. Catcher Taylor Teagarden (back) also reported to “feeling better” the last two days.

Britt, bringing back Tejada is mystifying. What are they thinking?.
