It is the first scheduled off day for both right fielder Nick Markakis and third baseman Mark Reynolds. Reynolds getting the night off doesn't surprise me because he's hitless in his last 14 at-bats with six strikeouts. However, Markakis is a little surprising. He's hit Mariners starter Felix Hernandez pretty well, going 13-for-28 with five RBIs and 5 walks against him in his career.

The clubhouse opens in about a half hour and we'll obviously check if it's just a standard off day or Markakis is nursing some sort of injury.

UPDATE: Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Markakis is home sick with a flu bug.
