Slow pregame scene for the A’s today, so here’s the lineups and what little there is to report …
A’s: Weeks 2B, Crisp CF, Matsui LF, Willingham DH, DeJesus RF, Allen 1B, Pennington SS, Suzuki C, Sogard 3B; Gonzalez LHP.
Orioles: Reimold LF, Hardy SS, Markakis RF, Jones CF, Guerrero DH, Wieters C, Reynolds 1B, Andino 2B, Bell 3B; Hunter RHP.
–Conor Jackson is still out with a sore neck as expected. Manager Bob Melvin says he’s getting better, but no word on his projected return.
–Brandon McCarthy (right knee contusion) made it through his bullpen session fine, so he looks on target for his Wednesday start.
–Scott Sizemore gets a day off, with Eric Sogard playing third.
