Os set second half rotation
BALTIMORE— The Orioles have set their second-half rotation with Ubaldo Jimenez, Chris Tillman and Miguel Gonzalez starting the team’s three-game series in Detroit.
Following an off day, Wei-Yin Chen will get the ball for the series opener in New York on July 21.
“It fit the best for the needs of our guys and where it fits best for the rest of the month,” manager Buck Showalter said of what went into the decision.
Kevin Gausman, who will start twice for Triple-A Norfolk, is expected to be added to the roster and pitch the fifth game after the All-Star Break, though Showalter wouldn’t commit either way on Saturday.
“We have some options there [with the off day],” Showalter said. “We have it mapped out through the rest of the month if everything stays.”
