Orioles and Rays lineups

Chris Davis is out of tonight’s lineup, but he’s back with the Orioles.

Davis confirmed in a Zoom call this afternoon that he had had a low fever due to a sinus infection. He underwent about eight tests for COVID-19 in the past few days that came back negative.

Davis is on the bench against Rays left-hander Blake Snell. Shortstop José Iglesias remains day-to-day with a sore left quadriceps muscle.

DJ Stewart is in left field.

Kohl Stewart has gone on the injured list and opted out due to safety concerns. Thomas Eshelman had his contract selected.

There are 39 players on the 40-man roster and 55 players in the pool.

“For the time being, I have decided to pause my participation in the 2020 season,” Stewart said in a statement. “My elevated risk of serious complications of COVID-19 due to Type 1 diabetes continues to be of great concern. I am grateful to the organization, as well as my coaches and teammates for their incredible support.”

Tommy Milone starts Sunday against the Rays.
