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.
