Reynolds serving as DH tonight (Roberts with team)

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has made an interesting adjustment to his lineup tonight, inserting Mark Reynolds as the designated hitter and starting Wilson Betemit at third base against Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow.

This is Reynolds’ first career start as the DH.

Reynolds committed two errors in five games on the homestand. He started at third base in Wednesday’s 10-inning loss to the Yankees.

Reynolds sat out one game after fouling a ball off his left calf.

For the Orioles:
Nolan Reimold LF
J.J. Hardy SS
Nick Markakis RF
Adam Jones CF
Matt Wieters C
Wilson Betemit 3B
Mark Reynolds DH
Chris Davis 1B
Robert Andino 2B

NOTE: I’m not in Toronto, but I’m told Brian Roberts made the trip. He worked out on the field earlier today with Brady Anderson.

Roberts also is expected to go to Chicago, but not Anaheim.

For the Blue Jays:
Yunel Escobar SS
Kelly Johnson 2B
Jose Bautista RF
Adam Lind 1B
Edwin Encarnacion DH
Eric Thames LF
Brett Lawrie 3B
Colby Rasmus CF
J.P. Arencibia C
