Orioles @ Yankee lineups and pregame notes

*There hasn’t been a decision made yet as to whether Jason Hammel will make another rehab start, but Hammel will join the team today in New York to fly to Toronto. Manager Buck Showalter said a decision on Hammel probably won’t come until after he’s thrown a bullpen in Toronto, but I think the safe bet is Hammel will make his next start for Baltimore. He tossed five scoreless innings for Frederick last night, striking out seven and allowing three hits and a walk.

*Tommy Hunter will also be in Toronto and is expected to be called up before Monday afternoon’s game –which would make 10 days since being optioned — from Double-A Bowie. Hunter, who tossed a scoreless inning for the Baysox last night, will be used out of the bullpen. He hit 96 mph on the radar gun last night, according to Showalter.

*Jake Arrieta will start for Triple-A Norfolk on Monday and the team will make a decision on whether to call him up after that. Arrieta and lefty reliever Zach Phillips are still under consideration for callups.
