Former Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick will serve as hitting coach tonight. Terry Crowley left the team to tend to a personal matter, but he’s expected to return tomorrow.
Bordick will wear No. 85, in case you’re wondering.
Admit it, you were wondering.
The Orioles are close to sending left-hander Michael Gonzalez on an injury rehab assignment.
Jake Fox is the fourth outfielder tonight while Lou Montanez deals with an oblique injury and Luke Scott serves as the designated hitter. Ty Wigginton can play left field, but he’s out of the lineup with tightness in his back.
