ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is back in the starting lineup to today's afternoon series finale against the Angels. Davis, who left Friday's game after his right knee buckled running through the first base bag in the fifth inning, sat out of Saturday's game after an MRI was performed and revealed patellar tendonosis in the knee. Both Davis and Orioles manager Buck Showalter were eyeing Tuesday as a possible return date to take advantage of the extra day of rest that comes with Monday's off day. But about 90 minutes before today's game, Davis was running sprints in the outfield and stretching the knee under the supervision of Orioles head trainer Richie Bancells.

NEW YORK -- Orioles first baseman-outfielder Steve Pearce said he expects to return to the starting lineup by Wednesday afternoon against the Yankees. Pearce was scratched from the starting lineup before Saturday's game against the Boston Red Sox with a sore right wrist. He had X-rays that night - which were negative - and also received a cortisone injection. Pearce wore a brace on his right wrist before Monday's game, but he said the wrist is feeling much better and the effects of the injection are taking place.

TAMPA, Fla. - Most of the Ravens' position battles won't be decided until much later in the preseason, but the starting lineups for Thursday's opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers included no significant surprises. There were some questions about who would start at middle linebacker, but free-agent pickup Daryl Smith started there and he was the Ravens' most active and effective defensive player in the early going. With Jameel McClain on the physically-unable-to-perform list, Josh Bynes started at weak-side linebacker and made a strong play to sniff out a screen pass in the second quarter, resulting in a Buccaneers' punt.

Overshadowed by the pregame news that Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games for violating MLB's drug policy is that shortstop J.J. Hardy, who has been nursing nagging lower back problems, is back in the starting lineup for Game 1 of today's doubleheader against the Yankees. Hardy left the club Monday in Boston and received a cortisone shot back in Baltimore. Hardy said he also received additional treatment on Thursday's off day, including a Toradol injection, and he swung at 80 percent.

Manny Ramirez Boston Red Sox vs. Oakland Athletics Starting lineup Both teams have premier shortstops in Oakland's Miguel Tejada, who overcame a rough first half, and Boston's Nomar Garciaparra. The Athletics ranked among the worst-hitting teams in the American League, while the Red Sox were first in batting and second in home runs with 238. Boston's outfield is superior offensively with Manny Ramirez, Johnny Damon and Trot Nixon, whose injured left calf muscle makes him questionable for Game 1. The Red Sox have four players with 90 or more RBIs for the first time since 1986.

Maryland used another new starting lineup -- its 11th of the season -- in the 75-63 loss to North Carolina on Tuesday night. Forward Charles Mitchell started for the first time this season. At some point -- practically, if not, mathematically -- the Terps are going to run out of frontcourt options. The frontcourt players have appeared overmatched at times this season, unable to contend with good teams without fouling. The low-water mark was the second loss to Pittsburgh in which Maryland surrendered 47 foul shots.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is not in the starting lineup for the second straight game nursing groin stiffness, but manager Buck Showalter said Machado could be available off the bench this afternoon. “[He's] gonna move around a little bit between now and game time, see where we are with it,” Showalter said of Machado. “But I feel good that we may have caught this in its infancy, so to speak, and that he'll hopefully be a full-go player here shortly.” -- Even though he was optioned before Friday's game, right-hander Preston Guilmet is still here on the 24-hour taxi squad and is expected to be recalled when first baseman Chris Davis goes on paternity leave.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Cleveland Indians at Camden Yards, but manager Buck Showalter said the team believes Machado can avoid going on the disabled list. Machado left Thursday's 8-7, 13-inning loss to Cleveland in the top of the 12th inning with right groin stiffness. “I think it was better than we thought it would be today,” Showalter said. “It's the proverbial day-to-day. We'll see what the next day or so brings, but we don't think it's a DL-able thing at this point.” Machado said his groin felt much better Friday, and he even hoped he could return to the starting lineup Saturday.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- One day after failing to record an out in an emergency start against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Orioles right-hander Russ Ortiz has been removed from the rotation. Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo said he thought it would be best for the team and Ortiz if the veteran attempted to turn around his season while in the bullpen. "We need a couple good outings out of Russ so that, mentally, he gets on the right track," Perlozzo said. "At that point in time, we'll find out if he's a pitcher or not."

HOUSTON -- As poorly as the first two games of their four-game series here at Minute Maid Park went, the Orioles can still salvage a split with a win this afternoon against the Astros. The Orioles will have to get through a familiar foe to get that win. Former Orioles right-hander Scott Feldman starts for the Astros this afternoon. The Orioles wanted to re-sign Feldman, who was acquired last July in a trade with the Chicago Cubs , but instead he signed a three-year, $30 million deal with the Astros in the offseason.

Mike Chanenchuk led Maryland in points with four and scored the game-winning goal with two seconds left in regulation to propel the seventh-seeded Terps to an 8-7 decision over Cornell in the first round of the NCAA tournament Saturday. But the senior attackman took great pains to single out the play of his freshman linemates in Matt Rambo and Connor Cannizzaro. “Matt and Connor, I think they grew up for us today, and they were being leaders out there today, which was really awesome to see,” Chanenchuk said Saturday.

NEW YORK - J.J. Hardy is out of the starting lineup for the third straight game, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated that the shortstop is close to returning from nagging back spasms. Showalter said that Hardy could be an option off the bench for today's game against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. “A lot better, much more available,” Showalter said. “I'm optimistic he'd be an option today. We'll see how the rest of the day goes. I wouldn't have said that yesterday.
