Orioles vs. Indians lineups and pregame notes

*In case you missed it, the big news today was that top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy will undergo Tommy John surgery. You can read more on that here.

*Wei-Yin Chen threw a successful side session today and he will go out on rehab assignment, likely for Double-A Bowie, on Saturday. Chen could be activated after that or the team could opt to give him one more rehab start. The plan is for him to pitch five or six innings.

*Nolan Reimold had his best rehab game today, going 3-for-6 for Bowie, while second baseman Brian Roberts went 2-for-4 for Triple-A Norfolk last night. Manager Buck Showalter said it’s unlikely both of those guys are ready by the weekend and Roberts is believed to be a little ahead of Reimold at this point.

*Steve Johnson threw today from 90 feet.

*Top position player prospect Jonathan Schoop (lower back) started hitting today.

*Earlier today, Double-A Bowie’s Henry Urrutia and Class-A Frederick pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez were named to the World roster in this year’s Futures Game. More on that here.
