Orioles @ Red Sox lineups and pregame notes

Not much new today as the Orioles try to avoid a three-game sweep in Boston..

*Jason Hammel will make his first rehab start for Double-A Bowie tonight and he will likely need at least one more unless the O’s have an injury situation up here. Wei-Yin Chen, who was optioned yesterday, threw a bullpen as scheduled in Sarasota, Fla.

*Tonight’s game is on MLB Network and Showalter mentioned that it seems people  in the media are already counting his club out out of the postseason. That’s fine by him.

“I like that people are counting us out,” he said. “Thirty games is an eternity.”

So, it’s pretty clear Showalter likes his guys.

“What’s not to like about them?” he said. “I’ve been with them for a while. I know them. I know what they’re made of. Just go ahead and count them out. It’s all right. These guys have got a lot of piss and vinegar in their blood.”
