1. Rookie starter. The Twins have recalled rookie Aaron Slegers to make his first start of the season. The 25-year-old has pitched in one game in relief for the Twins this season, allowing two runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings against the Royals in May.
2. Woe-ffense. The Orioles got decent starting pitching again in their past two losses in Philadelphia, but the offense came up short again, scoring just three runs in the two games. Can they put some runs up against a rookie starter?
3. Cashing in. Orioles starter Andrew Cashner has given up a total of four runs in his past two starts, going six innings in each. Is he starting to get into a groove?
