Orioles @ Rangers lineups and pregame notes


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…
