After last night's rainout, the
Infielder Steve Tolleson is here, wearing No. 6. He was recalled yesterday -- left-hander
Here's what came out of Orioles manager
-- The bullpen is still recovering from a weekend in which the Orioles played 39 innings over three games in Boston -- the Rangers' scoring 24 runs in the first two games of this series didn't help -- and the doubleheader will again tax the pitching staff. That will put pressure on starters
"If we can get deeper in these games than we have the [past] two games, we'll be fine," Showalter said. "If we get bumped out early two games in a row, we'll have to make some adjustments."
"Keep in mind he could have pitched today if he had to," Showalter said. "If it was a different part of the season, he probablty would pitch. We want to be real cautious with it. … Just leaning on him, he's got his arms around what he's dealing with and he feels like if he can get a couple extra days or three or four he should be able to manage it the rest of the season, that's what he's thinking."
-- As expected, Showalter confirmed that left-hander Dana Eveland will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to start Friday against Tampa Bay.
"He had a good year in a very hitter friendly park in Triple-A and has had some success at times in the big leagues and is pitching really well down there," Showalter said. "He's pitching as well as any of their starters down there. I think we're lucky to have him. We'll see if Tampa agrees with me."
-- Left-hander Tusyoshi Wada will have season-ending Tommy John surgery on his left elbow tomorrow, performed by Dr.
