After landing on the disabled list earlier this season with a nagging hamstring injury, Orioles pitcher Koji Uehara will likely be placed back on the DL, this time with an elbow strain, according to club manager Dave Trembley.
BAL: RHP David Hernandez (1-1, 3.95 ERA)
Hernandez was pulled after four innings in his last start for Triple-A Norfolk just in case he had to make this start. He is 3-2 with a 3.30 ERA in 11 starts for the Tides with 79 strikeouts in 57 1/3 innings pitched. WSH: LHP John Lannan (4-5, 3.44 ERA)
Lannan wasn't as good in his last start against the Red Sox as he was against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium last week. He lasted 6 1/3 innings, giving up three runs on nine hits. He left the game against Boston because he threw 109 pitches. Lannan relied heavily on his changeup to get hitters out. He figured the Red Sox would be waiting on the fastball. Tidbits
