Valencia stays in Orioles lineup

Danny Valencia will serve as the Orioles' designated hitter again today after collecting a double and home run yesterday against Toronto knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.

So much for Valencia being part of a DH platoon. He's facing another right-hander today, Jays starter Chad Jenkins.

Alexi Casilla gets the start at second base.

Matt Wieters is batting seventh for the first time this season.
