As it turns out, Brian Matusz won't have to wait long before getting back in the Orioles' rotation.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said today that Matusz will start Monday's series opener against the New York Yankees in the Bronx. Showalter said he wanted to give Matusz one more bullpen session before his next start to work on some things.

Tommy Hunter, who has been sick, threw a bullpen session today, and he'll start Tuesday in New York. Zach Britton will likely go in Wednesday's series finale.

Jo-Jo Reyes, whose wife yesterday gave birth to a boy, Hudson, is expected to rejoin the club in New York. Showalter hasn't decided when he'll be slotted back in the rotation.

Injured first baseman Chris Davis (right shoulder strain) will play for Double-A Bowie on Sunday and Monday. He'll start at first base one day and third base the next.
