Orioles lineup vs. Yankees (Gonzalez optioned)

Steve Clevenger is inside the Orioles clubhouse today and he’s listed among the reserves for their game against the Yankees at Camden Yards.

Caleb Joseph also will be on the bench. He says he’s fine physically. No injury.

The Orioles haven’t announced any roster moves, but Clevenger will be recalled.

Chris Tillman, bumped up a day to replace injured starter Ubaldo Jimenez, is 5-4 with a 5.83 ERA in 11 career games against the Yankees. He tossed seven scoreless innings on June 22 in the Bronx.

Derek Jeter is 6-for-16 (.375) against Tillman. Jacoby Ellsbury is 7-for-23 (.304) with two doubles and a home run.

Yankees right-hander Shane Greene is making his second major league start and third appearance today. He’s allowed two earned runs (five total) and four hits in 6 1/3 innings.

None of the Orioles have faced him.
