Orioles @ Tigers

*The Orioles will not start Jason Hammel tomorrow and will likely push the right-hander, who has had a stomach virus, back until Friday’s game. Zach Britton will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk in his place.

Hammel has been sick since Friday and stayed out of the clubhouse the two days after that. He’s in Detroit, but is still pretty weak and it’s probably safest to just let Chris Tillman go on his scheduled day Wednesday afternoon and push Hammel to the opener in Toronto.

*Miguel Gonzalez is in Detroit with the team, so there’s no baby news yet. If Gonzalez does have to leave the team -going on paternity leave- he could potentially be the roster move for Zach Britton.

*Wei-Yin Chen threw off a regular mound today, going 45 pitches, and will throw a simulate game on Thursday next. Manager Buck Showalter said Chen will have another sim game after that and he’s on track to potentially be activated from the DL in early July.
