Orioles @ Red Sox

Greetings from Fenway Park, where the Orioles will open a three-game set in Boston tonight.

*Jason Hammel made some progress today, getting about halfway up the mound for the first time since having a setback with that right knee. He said there’s still a little discomfort in his knee and he won’t get all the way up on the mound until that’s out of there. Orioles pitching coach Rick Adair is also working with Hammel to maybe tweak his delivery and take some pressure off of that knee. Hammel said again today he doesn’t think his season is over.

*Randy Wolf will start Saturday’s game with Chris Tillman pitching Sunday. Monday’s doubleheader will be Wei Yin Chen and to be decided. And, no, Dylan Bundy is not an option. He’s here as a relief candidate and will be used as needed. Why Wolf? He had a good start here last year and lefties during day game at Fenway Park can be tricky, according ot manager Buck Showalter.

*As expected both reliever Troy Patton and designated hitter Jim Thome were reinstated from the disabled list today.
