Davis out of lineup again, Reynolds starting at first (with Angels lineup)

One of the injured Orioles is in tonight’s lineup.

Mark Reynolds, who was hit on the left hand last night, is starting at first base and batting sixth against Angels southpaw C.J. Wilson. However, Chris Davis is on the bench again after being a late scratch last night because of a strained right trapezius muscle.

Only three games remain before the All-Star break, and the Orioles currently have a 24-man roster after optioning pitcher Jake Arrieta following last night’s 9-7 loss. No corresponding move has been announced.

As I wrote earlier, they could decide to recall infielder/outfielder Steve Tolleson tomorrow, since they don’t need another starter until after the break. Tonight’s game will determine whether they need to strengthen their bullpen.
