Orioles on deck: Pregame roster move, plus what to watch Friday vs. Indians, TV and more

Orioles (5-14) vs. Indians (9-7)

Where: Camden Yards


First pitch: 7:05 p.m.

TV/Radio: MASN/105.7 The Fan


Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Dylan Bundy (0-2, 1.40 ERA) vs. Indians RHP Trevor Bauer (1-1, 2.25 ERA)

Orioles call up Scott, option Vielma

The Orioles called up left-handed reliever Tanner Scott from Triple-A Norfolk and optioned utility infielder Engelb Vielma to the Tides before Friday's game.

Scott, 23, has made one appearance for the Orioles this season and has pitched six scoreless innings over four appearances with the Tides.


Vielma, 23, appeared in three games for the Orioles, starting one.

What to watch

1. Unlucky seven. The Orioles come home from their winless six-game road trip looking to avoid a seventh straight defeat. They have the second-longest active losing streak in the majors, behind the Kansas City Royals' nine in a row.

2. Stopper Bundy. And they're in luck because they'll have their best starting pitcher so far this season on the mound with a chance to end that slide. Bundy has yet to win this season, but has allowed just four earned runs in 25 2/3 innings and lasted seven innings twice.

3. End of the tour. As of first pitch, the Orioles will now have faced all five American League playoff teams from a season ago with the season just 20 games old. After this weekend, the Orioles' schedule finally softens a little, but only after playing a four-game wraparound series against an Indians club that made it to the 2016 World Series. The first starter the Orioles face is one they've had success against, as Trevor Bauer is 1-3 with a 5.86 ERA in five career games head to head. He's had significant difficulty with Manny Machado, who's 8-for-12 with two doubles, three homers and four RBIs against Bauer.
