Orioles @ Yankees lineups and pregame notes

*As expected, the Orioles reinstated Wilson Betemit from the disabled list and recalled Xavier Avery, Steve Tolleson and Luis Exposito.

*Manager Buck Showalter said there is nothing imminent regarding Troy Patton’s return from a right ankle sprain. Patton picked up a ball for the first time on Thursday and threw from approximately 60 feet on flat ground. Also, nothing new on Jim Thome, who is dealing with a herniated disk in his neck.

*Jason Hammel will make a rehab start tonight for High-A Frederick and won’t go more than five innings and around 75 pitches. Depending on how that goes, he could make his next start for the Orioles. Either way, Hammel will join the club in Toronto to throw a bullpen early next week.
