Orioles @ Yankees Game 1

*Greetings from Yankee Stadium, where the Orioles will take on the Yankees for Game 1 of a three-game set in the Bronx.

*Nick Markakis is back in the lineup for the first time since Tuesday while Adam Jones –who had two of the previous three games off- also returns. Steve Pearce, wearing a brace on his right wrist, is hoping to play on Wednesday. Pearce was a late scratch from Saturday’s lineup with right wrist soreness and said Monday morning was the first time he woke up with no discomfort. The O’s are playing it safe given that they have a postseason spot already.

*Ubaldo Jimenez will get another start in tomorrow’s game, with Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman after that.

*Manager Buck Showalter will give reporters the AL Division series rotation in the next few days and he confirmed today that the club will go with four pitchers and will not pitch anyone on short rest.
