The Orioles’ rotation has undergone another change.
The Orioles haven’t announced starters for Wednesday or Thursday, but left-hander Joe Saunders figures to make his Orioles debut after Tillman. Miguel Gonzalez, who had been listed as Tuesday’s starter, or left-hander Zach Britton could start on Thursday.
The Orioles could return Arrieta to Triple-A Norfolk, where he had been scheduled to start Tuesday, to make room for Saunders on the 25-man roster. Johnson is another candidate to be optioned despite turning in his second quality start last night.
The tarp is coming off the field, but it’s too late. Today’s game won’t be played.
I wanted to pass along two corrections from earlier today:
Saunders is a free agent after this season, according to an Orioles official. Baseball-Reference.com lists him as having another year of arbitration, but that’s no longer the case.
Also, my sister bought the tie that I wore today on “O’s Xtra.” I’m so used to my parents dressing me, I totally forgot. Sorry, sis.
