Roberts in lineup, leading off against Pirates

The Orioles have posted their lineup for tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates and, weather permitting, Brian Roberts will lead off and play second base. It will be Roberts’ first appearance in a major league game since May 16, 2011 in Boston and the culmination of a long recovery from concussion symptoms.

No official roster move has been made, so we’ll have to wait for the Orioles to accommodate Roberts’ return to the 25- and 40-man rosters.

It’s raining right now at Camden Yards, but here’s the Orioles lineup for tonight’s scheduled 7:05 p.m. start.

Brian Roberts 2B
J.J. Hardy SS
Chris Davis DH
Adam Jones CF
Matt Wieters C
Wilson Betemit 3B
Mark Reynolds 1B
Steve Pearce LF
Endy Chavez RF

Wei-Yin Chen LHP
