Orioles' wild-card game roster includes rookie Trey Mancini

The Orioles just announced their 25-man roster for Tuesday's American League wild card game, and it includes rookie first baseman Trey Mancini, who has just four major league games under his belt.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter will carry 10 pitchers for the do-or-die contest with the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. Starting pitchers Ubaldo Jimenez and Dylan Bundy will be available out of the bullpen and the Orioles will have two lefty situational relievers in Donnie Hart and Brian Duensing.


If the Orioles advance, they can reshuffle their roster before the American League Division Series, but because this series is just one game, Showalter went to a roster in which he can utilize matchups.

The Orioles have the edge over the Blue Jays in a few areas heading into Tuesday's American League Wild Card game in Toronto.

Mancini, who homered in each of his first three starts, is one of those options because he can come off the bench to face a left-hander while outfielders Nolan Reimold and Drew Stubbs can be used as a late-inning defensive substitutions or pinch runners.

Here is the team's complete 25-man roster.
