by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Orioles shuffle starting rotation


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.

"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."

While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.

As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.

Norris allowed two hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings. He walked five and struck out four during the outing. Norris’ penchant for free passes nearly got him in trouble at a few points during the game.

After getting a lineout, he was pulled from the game. Norris threw 108 pitches.

A fielding error put two men on base in the third inning, but that was the closest the Reds would come to scratching a run across against Norris.
