Davis in lineup

The Orioles will activate first baseman Chris Davis from the disabled list before today's game against the Astros. He's in the lineup batting third.

Five reserves are listed on the lineup card, so we're waiting for a corresponding roster move.

David Lough is in left field. Steve Clevenger is catching again today and Nelson Cruz is at designated hitter.

No Matt Wieters, who's one of the listed reserves.
