Brian Roberts’ status for tonight will be determined after batting practice. Julio Lugo has been cleared to play and will start at second base if Roberts is held out of the lineup.
An MRI on Roberts’ left hip yesterday came back clean. No structural damage. He’s just dealing with the soreness.
Lugo is fine after being hit on the helmet by a pickoff throw in Sunday’s game.
Adam Jones will start in center field, with Felix Pie in left and Nick Markakis in right. Ty Wigginton is playing first, Cesar Izturis shortstop and Josh Bell third. Matt Wieters is behind the plate.
Just waiting on second base.
Jones received treatment around 10 a.m. yesterday at Camden Yards. Roberts and Lugo also reported to the ballpark.
Update: Not much of one. Roberts finished his BP session. He didn’t have to cut it short.
