Upcoming rotation

We’re not quite ready for the second half of the season to begin, but here’s how the rotation unfolds when the Orioles get back on the field at Camden Yards:

Brad Bergesen
Jeremy Guthrie
Brian Matusz
Chris Tillman
Jake Arrieta

Bergesen has come full circle. His first start of 2010 came against the Blue Jays on April 9 at Camden Yards.

Let the circle be broken.

Bergesen allowed five runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings, though he didn’t get the decision in a 7-6 loss.

Alex Gonzalez homered off Bergesen. Jose Bautista went 2-for-3 with a double. John Buck doubled twice and drove in two runs. Adam Lind was 1-for-2 with an RBI.

Vernon Wells is 4-for-9 lifetime against Bergesen.

The last time Bergesen pitched, I filled in for Rick Dempsey on O’s Xtra and the Orioles lost, 4-2, to the Tigers. They went to Arlington and swept the Rangers in a four-game series.

Bergesen isn’t part of the streak, but he’ll try to keep it alive while working on eight days rest.

We’ll assume that he’s thrown a few times on the side.

B-Rob update: He isn’t in the starting lineup today for the GCL Orioles.
