Two-thirds of the rotation for New York

Manager Buck Showalter confirmed that Chris Tillman is the likely starter for Tuesday night’s series opener against the Yankees. Jake Arrieta will start Thursday over left-hander Zach Britton, who will take the ball Friday in Cleveland.

Showalter wants to give Britton an extra day to rest after his extended Game 1 start yesterday.

The Orioles are still listing Wednesday’s starter as TBA. Chris Jakubauskas is one possibility if they stay in-house, but they also could call up a pitcher while placing J.J. Hardy on the disabled list.

Brad Bergesen remains in the running after being optioned to Triple-A Norfolk yesterday.
