Monday starting lineup vs. Orioles and injury updates

Austin Romine, the righty - Elsa

Tonight's starting lineup against Freddy Garcia and the Orioles has been revealed.

The first things that come to mind:

  • That is a very lefty-heavy lineup, with David Adams and Austin Romine being the only right-handed hitter in the lineup, as Garcia has a .261/.329/.430 line against left-handed batters throughout his career.
  • Jayson Nix is finally not in the lineup after not having a day off since May 6, now if they could only give Lyle Overbay a day off too.

Injury updates:

  • Chris Stewart is going to need another couple of days before he can get back into the lineup and might actually need to report to Tampa. Hopefully Austin Romine can handle being the only catcher on the team for a few more days.
  • According to Mark Teixeira's own twitter he has finally starting hitting after going 1-2 with a double and a walk. There was some initial confusion about whether he was in an extended spring training game or a simulated game. Regardless, this is the first time he's seen live pitching since March and it's a good sign in the right direction, however, I doubt he's back before June like he claims he will be.
