Pre-game: Orioles vs. Yankees

The Baltimore Sun

Today was a busy news afternoon in Birdland. A day after his worse outing of the spring, the Orioles designated left-hander Dana Eveland for assignment. They also added infielder Zelous Wheeler to the 40-man roster and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk. Oh, and shortstop J.J. Hardy, who missed his third game Thursday with a bum shoulder, seems OK and said he should play Friday.

Oh, and the Orioles are playing a game tonight.

The O's face the Yankees under the lights at Steinbrenner Field. Jason Hammel will start, and right-hander Pedro Strop, left-hander Troy Patton and right-hander Darren O'Day are also scheduled to pitch.

Here are the starting lineups:

Nolan Reimold LF
