Lineup, various things before Showalter

Buck Showalter is about to speak to the media this morning.

Here's the lineup:

Roberts 4, Markakis 9, Lee 3, Guerrero DH, Reynolds 5, Jones 8, Fox 7, Wieters 2, Andino 6. Guthrie P.

Obviously, Hardy is out. He is expected to go on the disabled list once a MRI on Monday shows what everyone expects, that Hardy has a strained oblique.

A DL move will follow Monday or before Tuesday's game. It will either be a reliever or catcher Craig Tatum will be summoned from Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles would like to get a natural catcher to backup Matt Wieters. Jake Fox is in the majors for his bat and can catch in a pinch. But they'd rather not have that happen too often, it seems.

Speaking of Fox, he is in the lineup, batting seventh and playing left field. It's a way to get his right-handed-hitting bat in the order.
