Orioles vs Royals lineups and pregame notes

Here are your non-Adam Jones pregame notes today…

*The Orioles recalled right-handed reliever Stu Pomeranz and catcher Ronny Paulino from Triple-A Norfolk, optioning catcher Luis Exposito to the Tides and designating infielder/outfielder Bill Hall for assignment to clear room.

Pomeranz has not allowed an earned run in 10 appearances this season with Triple-A Norfolk (five games, 10.0IP) and Double-A Bowie (five games, 13.1IP).  He pitched more than one inning in nine of 10 appearances, striking out 35 and walking three.  Pomeranz made two scoreless appearances (4.0IP, 4H, BB, 3K) for the Orioles earlier this season after having his contract selected on May 7.

Paulino batted .300 (9-30) with three RBI in nine games for the Orioles earlier this season.  He hit .283/.313/.391 in 12 games for Norfolk after being optioned on May 7.Exposito hit .059 (1-17) in eight games with the Orioles after being recalled from the Tides on May 4. Hall batted .286 (2-7) with a solo home run, becoming the 22nd Oriole in franchise history to hit a home run in his first game with Baltimore.  He had his contract selected on May 12.

*Nolan Reimold received his second epidural injection today and is resting at home.

*Mark Reynolds went 1-for-2 with a homer and two walks in an extended spring game this afternoon, and he will head –along with outfielder Endy Chavez — to Double-A Bowie on Saturday to start a rehab assignment. Zach Britton is also scheduled to make his first rehab start for Bowie that game.

*Taylor Teagarden (lower back injury) received a second opinion that was the same diagnosis as the first, and he will head back to extended spring in Sarasota. Reliever Matt Lindstrom (torn right middle finger ligament) is expected to head down to Sarasota to start his rehab in the next day or two.
