Reimold returns to lineup (more on DH and Izturis)

Nolan Reimold is starting in left field tonight for the series finale against the Blue Jays.

For the Orioles:
J.J. Hardy SS
Nick Markakis RF
Adam Jones CF
Vladimir Guerrero DH
Derrek Lee 1B
Matt Wieters C
Mark Reynolds 3B
Nolan Reimold LF
Robert Andino 2B

Brad Bergesen RHP

For the Blue Jays:
Escobar SS
Rasmus CF
Bautista 3B

Hill 2B
Snider LF
Arencibia C

Villanueva RHP

Hardy is 4-for-6 lifetime against Villanueva. Reynolds is 3-for-7 with a home run. Lee is 1-for-15.

In case you were wondering, right-handers are hitting .221 against Villanueva this season, while left-handers are batting .251. However, right-handers are hitting .251 against him lifetime, while left-handers are batting .242.

Also, Chris Tillman and Zach Britton will be the starters for Saturday’s doubleheader in New York. That’s the current plan.

The Orioles aren’t expected to activate infielder Cesar Izturis from the disabled list before Sunday. He’ll work out with the team in New York beginning tomorrow. He’ll likely rejoin the 25-man roster after the doubleheader.
