Gonzalez having MRI, Tillman to start Thursday

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Orioles rotation for their upcoming series with the Athletics still has not been set.

Wei-Yin Chen is set to start on Friday and Ubaldo Jimenez on Sunday, but the starter for Saturday’s game is still unknown.

Chris Tillman was originally supposed to start Saturday, but his spot is now listed as TBA. Tillman’s health is fine, but he has been moved to start Thursday on normal rest because Miguel Gonzalez woke up yesterday with pain in his right side.

Gonzalez is currently undergoing an MRI. The Orioles are hoping that Gonzalez doesn’t have an oblique strain, but the disabled list is possible. If Gonzalez is OK, he will start on Saturday.

Kevin Gausman might have his start for Triple-A Norfolk tonight shortened in case he’s needed by the Orioles on Saturday.
