Orioles vs. Pirates lineups and pregame notes

*In case you missed it, lefty Brian Matusz (nose contusion) has been scratched and Jake Arrieta will get the start. Matusz is slated to pitch on Friday, which bumps back Jason Hammel and avoids Hammel pitching twice in InterLeague parks on that knee. Tommy Hunter will throw Thursday.

*Endy Chavez is still on the active roster today and he said right now the team will wait ot see how his right hamstring injury progresses over the next day or two before deciding on a move. Chavez strained the hamstring when he hit the first base bag in the sixth inning of last night’s game and he limped over to second base.

*The July 14  Orioles-Tigers game has been changed from 7:05 p.m. to 4:05 p.m. and will now be broadcast on FOX>  July 14 also marks the unveiling of the Jim Palmer sculpture as part of the Orioles Legends Celebration Series. The Palmer sculpture unveiling will take place at 2:15 p.m. that day, with all ballpark gates opening at 2:00 p.m.

Is the statue ceremony really happening that long before the game? I had to miss the Frank Robinson game, so I am unsure on how the timing for the ceremonies are.
