Brian Roberts (knee, hamstring) began doing sprints Tuesday.
Roberts has been hitting for a little while now, but he'll need to run without restrictions before being cleared to return to game action. As of now, he's hoping to begin a rehab assignment after the Orioles' roadtrip ends on Sunday.
Matt Wieters is not in the Orioles' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.
He's getting the day off with the early start time. Taylor Teagarden will start behind the plate and catch Chris Tillman.
Hanley Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees.
This will give Ramirez's hamstring a bit of a rest. Nick Punto will make the start at shortstop.
Torii Hunter is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Orioles.
He's likely just getting the day off. Don Kelly is starting in right field.
Chase Utley (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Double-A Reading.
Utley figures to play at least a couple of games, but he could rejoin the Phillies this weekend if all goes well. The veteran second baseman has been sidelined since May 20 with a right oblique strain.
According to the blog Manny Does Taiwan, Manny Ramirez has been taken off the roster of the EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Professional Baseball League.
Ramirez is slated to leave the country on June 21. No word on the reason for him leaving the team, though there has been some speculation that he could be headed to Japan. The 41-year-old slugger batted .352/.422/.555 with eight home runs and 43 RBI in 206 plate appearances during his time with the Rhinos.
According to Alex Speier of WEEI.com, the Red Sox will officially sign first-round left-hander Trey Ball on Wednesday.
Ball, who was selected No. 7 overall in this month's First-Year Player Draft, was in Boston on Monday to take his physical. No word yet on the exact amount of his bonus, but he's expected to sign for less than the $3.246 million recommended slot value.
Danny Espinosa (wrist) could stay in the minors once his 20-day rehab window expires.
Espinosa's wrist is feeling better, but it hasn't shown in his performance thus far in Triple-A, as he's hitting just .118 (2-for-17) with 10 strikeouts over his first six games. Anthony Rendon is playing well during his absence, so there's no reason to make a change if Espinosa continues to struggle during his rehab stint.
