Wieters out of lineup again tonight (with Thome update)

Though Matt Wieters said his right biceps feels much better today, he remains out of the Orioles lineup for tonight's game against the Athletics.

Endy Chavez is starting in left field and Chris Davis is serving as the designated hitter instead of Jim Thome, who sat in manager Buck Showalter's office early today.

For the Orioles:
Nick Markakis RF
J.J. Hardy SS
Chris Davis DH
Adam Jones CF
Wilson Betemit 3B
Endy Chavez LF
Mark Reynolds 1B
Omar Quintanilla 2B
Taylor Teagarden C

Tommy Hunter RHP

For the Athletics:
Coco Crisp CF
Jemile Weeks 2B
Seth Smith RF
Yoenis Cespedes LF
Chris Carter DH
Brandon Moss 1B
Brandon Inge 3B
Kurt Suzuki C
Eric Sogard SS

Bartolo Colon RHP

In case you missed Steve Melewski's report on MASNsports.com, second baseman Brian Roberts will begin an injury-rehab assignment tonight at short-season Single-A Aberdeen. The assignment can last up to 20 days.

Update: Thome will not start tonight due to neck spasms.
