Orioles @ Indians lineups and pregame notes

Greetings from Cleveland where the Orioles will go for the series in the rubber game and conclusion of a three-city, nine-game road trip…

*Jason Hammel will be activated when the team returns to Baltimore, although he’s probably not available to pitch until at least Friday. Hammel made his second rehab start for Double-A Bowie last night and you can read more on that here.

*The Orioles announced the addition of three new members to their Sarasota staff today: Amy Tuten has been named Manager of Sponsorship Sales, Kirsten Ladendorf has joined the club as Manager of Catering and Suites and Scott Moudry. Trevor Markham has been promoted to Director of Operations.

*Brian Roberts is DH’ing for the second consecutive game, which is a product of manager Buck Showalter wanting to work some guys –like Ryan Flaherty– back in the mix. It’s been a long trip and this is a little breather for Roberts, who has posted up every day.

*The Casey Cares 5K race, held August 3 at Camden Yards, raised 69,642.65 for the Casey Cares Foundation, more than doubling the amount raised at any of the previous three races. The organization provides uplifting programs with a special touch to critically ill children and their families.

What is status of O’s pitching coach? Could his departure in any way be a sign of displeasure over the trade of Arrietta?
