Orioles @ Royals Game 1

Greetings from Kansas City, where the O’s will try to rebound after being swept at home in a four-game series against the Twins. In case you missed it, Baltimore made four roster moves: they recalled RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Norfolk and have reinstated INF/OF Steve Pearce from the 15-day disabled list. They’ve also placed J.J. Hardy on the DL and designated Nolan Reimold for assignment.

*Hardy will re-join the team on Tuesday in Kansas City. Manager Buck Showalter said his MRI was encouraging and the team hopes Hardy’s groin strain will be resolved in the 15-day period.

*Monday’s moves will be followed by another addition on Tuesday as catcher Steve Clevenger will go on paternity leave after the game and miss the rest of the series. The Orioles will add a player to fill his roster spot during that time.

*Mike Wright (calf strain) will throw five innings for Triple-A Norfolk in a rehab start on Thursday. Chaz Roe (tendinitis) will throw a side on Tuesday and a simulated game on Friday in Texas.
