Orioles and Blue Jays lineups (Pearce not listed among reserves)

Still waiting on the Orioles’ roster move for Miguel Gonzalez’s activation tonight.

The lineup is pretty standard for the series opener in Toronto. Ryan Flaherty is at second and Danny Valencia is batting ninth as the designated hitter against R.A. Dickey.

On another note, the July 7 game against the Yankees in the Bronx will air on TBS beginning at 1 p.m.

For the Orioles
LF Nate McLouth
3B Manny Machado
RF Nick Markakis
CF Adam Jones
1B Chris Davis
C Matt Wieters
SS J.J. Hardy
2B Ryan Flaherty
DH Danny Valencia

Jason Hammel RHP

For the Blue Jays
Melky Cabrera LF
Jose Bautista RF
Edwin Encarnacion DH
Adam Lind 1B
Colby Rasmus CF
Maicer Izturis 3B
Josh Thole C
Emilio Bonifacio 2B
Munenori Kawasaki SS

R.A. Dickey RHP

Update: The lineup card posted in the visiting clubhouse at Rogers Centre doesn’t include Steve Pearce among the reserves. Travis Ishikawa is listed.

Pearce would have to be designated for assignment to come off the 25-man roster. The move would leave the Orioles without a right-handed hitting backup outfielder, though Valencia played one game in right and one in left with Triple-A Norfolk before being recalled.

Nolan Reimold is expected to come off the disabled list after the road trip. At that point, the Orioles will have to make another decision regarding Ishikawa.
