Orioles @ Rangers lineups and pregame notes

Urrutia

Greetings from Arlington, where the Orioles will play at Rangers Ballpark for the first time since winning the American League Wild Card game last fall.

*In case you missed it, there’s been a wealth of roster moves today. Here’s the quick recap: Henry Urrutia (above) had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk, Nolan Reimold was placed on the 15-day disabled list, Danny Valencia was recalled and Chris Dickerson was designated for assignment. You can read more on all that here.

*The rotation after the All-Star Break is: Wei-Yin Chen, Miguel Gonzalez, Chris Tillman, Scott Feldman and Jason Hammel. Hammel threw a side session here today with pitching coach Rick Adair.

I know, who am I to question a great manager Buck Showalter but Chris Davis batting in the 5th spot? Am I the only one?

It’s not like he batted cleanup in the All Star Game!

Oh wait…
