Orioles @ Angels lineups and pregame notes

*Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold is getting the start tonight at leadoff for the first time this season, with manager Buck Showalter saying he feels like Reimold –who went 2-for-4 last night– is close to being in a good place offensively.

Nate McLouth is sitting with the lefty Jason Vargas on the field, with Steve Pearce serving at designated hitter.

*Tsuyoshi Wada will throw five innings in extended spring tomorrow and that could be his final outing down there before going on a Minor League rehab assignment.

*Brian Roberts continues to progress in baseball activities, running the foul poles today and throwing from 90 feet –which is up from 75– although there’s no timetable on his return.

*Freddy Garcia, tomorrow’s starter, is here and I’ll have more from him later.
