The Orioles are 2 ½ games out of the last wild card spot, but they moved ahead of the Twins without playing last night and begin another important series against the White Sox at Camden Yards.
Chicago is four back in the wild card race.
No moves were made today to alter the Orioles’ active roster. All they did was reinstate infielder Jonathan Araúz from the 10-day injured list and option him to Triple-A Norfolk.
If shortstop Gunnar Henderson is making his major league debut this week, it won’t happen tonight.
Terrin Vavra is batting fifth and playing second base. Rougned Odor is at third base.
