Teagarden catching, Stinson starting in finale vs. Jays (Burnett likely optioned)

Manager Buck Showalter is going with close to his standard lineup for today's afternoon finale against the Blue Jays.

The only change is Taylor Teagarden starting at catcher in place of Matt Wieters because it's a day game after a night game. Teagarden has appeared in just two games this season, with the last one coming on Saturday.

Right-hander Josh Stinson is set for his Orioles debut. Reliever Alex Burnett just walked out of Showalter's office and appeared to have his travel papers in hand. So it looks like the veteran right-hander will be optioned to make room for Stinson on the 25-man roster.
