Orioles @ Twins lineups and pregame notes

20140502-165144.jpg

Greetings from chilly Minnesota, where the Orioles will take on the Twins for a three-game series. Both teams are coming off of doubleheaders on Thursday, the O’s swept the Pirates and the Twins got swept by the Dodgers.

The O’s officially recalled reliever Brad Brach to bolster the bullpen, and the righty will take the spot vacated by Evan Meek who was optioned after last night’s second game.

Top pitching prospect Kevin Gausman was also placed on the Minor League disabled list today with a left intercostal strain. The good news is it’s not on the right-hander’s throwing side, but obviously it’s disappointing as he was an option for the Orioles.
