Orioles and Tigers lineups

J.J. Hardy's lower back spasms are no longer an issue, and he's in the Orioles lineup for today's game at Comerica Park against the Tigers.

With Hardy in, Ryan Flaherty takes a seat, no real surprise considering he's 0-for-15 with seven strikeouts.

Nick Markakis is today's DH, batting fifth.
