CHICAGO -- Scott Feldman already has a locker in the visiting clubhouse of U.S. Cellular Field, his new Orioles No. 34 jerseys hanging inside.
He’s currently on his way from Oakland – where the Cubs are playing and Feldman was slated to start tonight -- back to Chicago. And the Orioles will be expecting him to be ready immediately tommorrow.
The Orioles announced that Feldman will make his Orioles debut Wednesday against the White Sox. Left-hander Zach Britton will start Thursday’s afternoon game on regular rest.

That allowed the Orioles to push right-hander Miguel Gonzalez – originally slated to start Wednesday – back to Friday’s series opener at Yankee Stadium. That gives Gonzalez an extra three days rest and matches him up against a Yankees team he’s had success against.
Wei-Yin Chen will make one more rehab start for Triple-A Norfolk and then likely join the starting rotation.
Lost in the shuffle of today’s trade is the return of outfielder Nolan Reimold off the disabled list. Reimold will start in left field and bat eighth tonight against White Sox left-hander John Danks.
Here are tonight’s starting lineups:

Manny Machado 3B
J.J. Hardy SS
Adam Jones CF
Chris Davis 1B
