Orioles @ Rays lineups and pregame notes

Originally posted on Britt's Bird Watch:

Greetings from Tropicana Field, where the Orioles got good news today on catcher Matt Wieters’ right elbow. Wieters was examined by Dr. James Andrews this morning and the Gold Glover is not a candidate for surgery. He is expected back with the team around 5:30 p.m. ET and is listed tonight on the bench.

To help add catching depth –given that Wieters will likely have to rest his elbow from throwing– the O’s purchased the contract of Caleb Joseph. Joseph, 28, is making his first career Major League start tonight. The O’s had an extra spot on their 40-man roster and they optioned Jemile Weeks back to Triple-A Norfolk to clear room on the 25-man roster.

Chris Davis was out again before the game doing some running and throwing as he continues to progress from a left oblique strain.
