Orioles vs Royals lineups

*Bill Hall, who was designated for assignment yesterday, has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

*Brian Roberts, who played  three consecutive rehab games at second base, will take today off and play again for Double-A Bowie on Sunday and Monday. Roberts will head to the team’s affiliate in Delmarva and play Tuesday and Wednesday, when the Baysox hit the road. Roberts, who has been limited to just two plate appearances, will get three on Sunday and is expected to get four with Delmarva. Manager Buck Showalter, who was on hand for one of Roberts’ games, said that the second baseman is slowing “getting his clock back” and adjusting back to game-speed.

*Zach Britton will make his first rehab start for Double-A Bowie tonight, with outfielder Endy Chavez and third baseman Mark Reynolds also scheduled to play.

*Adam Jones’ agent Nez Balelo –who was originally scheduled to flight out last night — is still in town and the 26-year-old center fielder had breakfast with him this morning. There’s no news on that front, but the fact that he’s still here probably means discussions are still ongoing.  You can read my story from last night on the Jones situation here.

*Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy will make his first start since being promoted to Class-A Advanced Frederick tonight. The 19-year-old Bundy has not allowed an earned run in the first 30 innings of his professional career.
