Orioles @ Mariners lineups and pregame notes

*The Orioles have recalled Danny Valencia from Triple- A Norfolk, taking the roster spot of pitcher Steve Johnson, who was optioned after last  night’s game.  Johnson will be part of Norfolk’s rotation according to manager Buck Showalter.

*Wilson Betemit will start a rehab assignment on Tuesday, serving at designated hitter for the Orioles’ Gulf Coast League club. He could rejoin the club at some point this month.

*Brian Roberts remains on paternity leave and he is expected to fly with the team to the West Coast on Monday.

*Miguel Gonzalez will be in the bullpen today –it’s his regular side session day– and he’s on track to start Wednesday’s game in San Diego. Bud Norris will pitch Tuesday’s series opener.
