Betemit in left field tonight, Reynolds at first base (Reimold note)

The Orioles activated Endy Chavez from the disabled list today, but he won’t be in their lineup against Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero.

Wilson Betemit is starting in left field. Mark Reynolds, who came off the DL yesterday and went 2-for-3 with a walk and RBI, is starting at first base.

Steve Tolleson, whose roster spot appeared to be in jeopardy, is starting at third base.

For the Orioles:
Robert Andino 2B
J.J. Hardy SS
Nick Markakis RF
Adam Jones CF
Matt Wieters C
Mark Reynolds 1B
Chris Davis DH
Wilson Betemit LF
Steve Tolleson 3B

Jake Arrieta RHP

For the Blue Jays:
Kelly Johnson 2B
Yunel Escobar SS
Jose Bautista RF
Edwin Encarnacion DH
Colby Rasmus CF
J.P. Arencibia C
Brett Lawrie 3B
David Cooper 1B
Rajai Davis LF

Ricky Romero LHP

NOTE: Manager Buck Showalter told reporters in Toronto that Nolan Reimold is headed to Sarasota. The second epidural shot apparently is having a positive effect, though it’s still not known whether he’ll need a third one. Take it as a good sign that he’s at the point where he can report to the Ed Smith Stadium complex.
