Trey Mancini is back in the Orioles’ lineup tonight as the designated hitter for the series opener against the Nationals at Camden Yards.
Mancini didn’t play Sunday against the Rays due to some lingering soreness in his right hand.
Adley Rutschman is catching and batting sixth. Tyler Nevin is the third baseman.
Rougned Odor is starting at second base, as he usually does against a right-hander.
Rylan Bannon, recalled today from Triple-A Norfolk, is counted among the four reserves. Bannon led the International League in slugging (.906) and OPS (1.424) last week.
The Nationals reinstated infielder Alcides Escobar from the injured list.
