Orioles Game 1 lineup vs. Rays

David Hess is the 26th man for today’s doubleheader against the Rays, making his latest stop with the Orioles.

Hess could back up Aaron Brooks, who isn’t stretched out to work deep into the opener. The Orioles also could make another roster move before the nightcap.

Trey Mancini is starting at first base and Anthony Santander is in right field. Santander is 17-for-48 (.354) in 12 home games.

Hanser Alberto is leading off and playing third base. Pedro Severino is catching and batting cleanup.

Rays two-way player Brendan McKay, the fourth overall pick in 2017, is making his third major league start in the opener. He’s allowed three runs and seven hits in 11 innings, with one walk and six strikeouts.

The Rays activated first baseman Ji-Man Choi from the injured list. Reliever Ian Gibaut was optioned to Triple-A Durham.

Rio Ruiz is on the bench for the first game while the Rays start a left-hander. Ruiz hit his second career triple last night, the other being his first major league hit on Sept. 28, 2016.
