Orioles @ Mariners lineups and pregame notes

Manny Machado has returned to the Orioles lineup after missing four games with low back spasms. Manager Buck Showalter said he almost used him last night.

Showalter was pretty cryptic regarding the team’s upcoming pitching rotation, saying that the Orioles could do a few “interesting” things depending on what happens in today’s game. I don’t think he’s talking about a trade in the works, but rather some roster manipulation.

Miguel Gonzalez is slated to start, but the O’s could use Monday’s off day to their advantage by lining up certain guys next week when they host the Angels and Mariners. They could also use lefty T.J. McFarland on Sunday if need be. That would depend on if he’s used today and if lefty Brian Matusz is available. Stay tuned.

Hey Britt !!
Good to see Manny back in the Line-Up !! He is killing my Fantasy Team ! LOL !
He was just getting warmed up when he went down with the Low Back Spasms –
I can relate ( tho I am Not a Pro Ball Player – lol ) I have had 2 Low Back Surgeries
and 5 on my Neck ! Well, let’s Hope that Manny get’s Right Back in the Groove and
gets some Good Knocks Today !! Game Time just around the corner ! I was so Happy to see CRUSH HIT THE LONG BALL LAST NIGHT !!! My heart has been
Breaking for Chris as he is Such a GREAT GUY in Every way !! Any New News on
Jim Johnson coming Home? I had a Little Banter going yesterday with another O’s
Fan on here about Bringing ” JJ ” Home to Camden Yards … Seems he is Holding
a Grudge for Johnson’s Blown Saves last year … Too BAD !! FORGIVE AND FORGET !! After all he did save 101 games for the Orioles in 2 years – That Surely
should give ” JJ ” some sort of Credence in the Orioles Family … Just Sayin’ !!!
Have a Great Game !!!
