Orioles vs. Red Sox lineups & pregame notes- Morse shut down

Greetings from Camden Yards, as the Orioles get ready for their second to last game of the season. The bench dwindles by the day, with manager Buck Showalter saying today that Michael Morse has been shut down with a left wrist injury that he was made aware of several days ago.

Morse will go see Dr. Brian Schofield in Sarasota, Fla. and then get a second opinion from the Mayo clinic and decide whether surgery is necessary.

Jonathan Schoop is also not available today as the rookie infielder came in today a little sore and Showalter said could have tweaked something in his back.

Showalter also said he’s leaning toward starting Chris Tillman still on Sunday, since the right-hander wants to pitch.

Manny Machado will get a second opinion on his left knee from Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla. on Monday. Right now, the plan is for Machado to rest and rehab back in time for Spring Training without surgery.
