Orioles @ Astros lineups and pregame notes

Greetings from Camden Yards, where the big news out of Orioles camp is that catcher Matt Wieters is on the disabled list and first baseman Chris Davis back from a left oblique strain. You can read more on that here.

In Minor League news, Kevin Gausman was strong in his return from pneumonia, striking out six over 4 2/3 innings. You can read about his outing here.

Rehabbing Johan Santana made his second extended spring start yesterday, throwing 2 1/3 innings and not doing as well as the previous time. Showalter said the mound was a little soft and Santana’s velocity –while still in the mid-80s- was down just a touch.

Here are the lineups…
