Orioles vs Rays Game 2, Pregame notes and lineups

*Orioles reliever Matt Lindstrom, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of an injury to his right middle finger, underwent an MRI. Manager Buck Showalter said the team may have to wait until Monday before someone qualified is able to read it and make a diagnosis. 

*Lefty Tsuyoshi Wada is traveling to Sarasota, Fla., on Monday to being his rehab after undergoing successful Tommy John surgery on Friday. 

*Endy Chavez will also be heading to Sarasota to rehab the oblique muscle that landed him on the DL on Thursday. 

*Manager Buck Showalter hinted that the team could make a roster move to get back to 13 position players on Sunday. The 25-man roster currently has 13 pitchers, including six starters. Dana Eveland and Tommy Hunter would both be candidates for assignment to Norfolk, although Jason Hammel could be moved to the disabled list if his right knee is not healthy enough to pitch by Monday or Tuesday, as is expected. He has not started since May 5.
