Here are the lineups for today's series opener against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. The sky is slightly hazy, but there's a nice breeze and it looks like it's going to be a fine day for baseball:

Buck Showalter held court a few minutes ago and said that Chris Davis probably will be here in time for tomorrow night's game. Davis is scheduled to play third base today in a rehab game for the Bowie Baysox.

Davis probably will play third base when he gets here, but Showalter also wants to see him at his other positions.

Jim Johnson still hasn't been scheduled for a spot start, but Showalter said that it is still a possibility. The presence of a couple of new starters over the past several weeks has reduced the urgency surrounding the possibility of preparing Johnson for a possible place in next year's rotation.

"I can get him multiple innings in other ways,'' Showalter said.

JoJo Reyes has rejoined the team after rushing home to be present for the birth of his second child. His wife and new son, Hudson Joseph, are doing fine.

Look for another pitching move in the next day or so. The Orioles will bring up a pitcher from the Norfolk roster. I'm guessing Mark Hendrickson, but it's just a guess. Chris Tillman is still down there. Jason Berken also could be back from his rehab assignment this week.
