Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is out of the starting lineup on Sunday, ending a string of 15 straight starts at the position. He's replaced by Everth Cabrera, who returns to the lineup for the Orioles for the first time since May 6.

Caleb Joseph also gets a rest, replaced at catcher by Ryan Lavarnway for the eighth time this year.

Shoulder - 15-day DL. Out until at least late May (Updated - 5/8/15)
News
Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman, who has been sidelined since the start of the month with shoulder tendinitis, is tentatively scheduled to throw a simulated game on June 2, per MASNSports.com. 

It's all part of a carefully calculated rehab plan by the Orioles, who will have Gausman throw a bullpen session Tuesday and face live hitters on Friday, setting the stage for the two-inning sim game. He will then likely head to Triple-A Norfolk to stretch his arm out. 

Gausman is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in eight games this season.

Slumping first baseman Chris Davis is not in the Orioles' starting lineup Monday, the first time this season Davis has not started a game in which he was eligible. 

Davis did not start on Opening Day, which was the last game of the 25-game suspension he incurred last season for violating MLB's drug policy. 

Davis has been in a prolonged slump this season, and with the Astros starting tough left-hander Dallas Keuchel, it seemed as good as day as any to give Davis a day off. 

Steve Pearce gets the start at first base, while Everth Cabrera is in the lineup for the second straight day, this time at second base.

Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce went 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 4-3 win over the Astros on Monday.

With the Orioles down 3-2, Pearce slugged his fifth homer of the season in the seventh inning to give his team the lead for good.

"We just capitalized on his mistakes and we hadn't been doing that all year," Pearce said about the come-from-behind win, per MASNSports.com. "Hope this is the start of the something. We have a good hitting team, but haven't been consistent all year. Now is as good a time as any to get hot. This is huge for us as a team. Our division is very tight right now so to start this series with a win against this pitcher, hope it swings some momentum our way. Never feel good about losing but we bounced back. Didn't let losing to team that was struggling affect us. Today is a new day and new series and we flushed whatever happened in Miami away."

Pearce started the game at first base but was moved to second after shortstop J.J. Hardy came out of the game with back spasms. He has hit .192/.264/.354 with five home runs and 17 RBI in 99 at-bats.

"Hopefully [Monday] is the start of something," Pearce said, per MLB.com. "We have a good team, we have a good hitting team. We just haven't had consistency all year. Right now is a good time to get hot as any. So hopefully we'll start something."

Orioles starter Chris Tillman lost his fifth straight decision to Houston on Tuesday, dropping to 1-6 on the year. 

Tillman gave up two runs on five hits over seven innings. It's his second loss during the streak in which he's given up just two earned runs in seven innings. 

"It's a step in the right direction for a guy we know is capable of pitching at a good level," manager Buck Showalter said. "We obviously haven't been giving our pitchers much margin for error, but he gave us a real good chance to win tonight. Probably even a little bit better than that."

Tillman struck out five and walked three. His next start is Sunday, against Tampa Bay.

News
Orioles reliever Brian Matusz was issued an eight-game suspension by MLB Monday as punishment for being caught with a "foreign substance" on his arm during Saturday's game against the Marlins. 

Matusz was ejected in the 12th inning on Saturday after it was brought to the umpires' attention that Matusz had a visible substance on his arm. When the home plate umpire determined it was an illegal substance, he discussed with Orioles manager Buck Showalter briefly before ejecting Matusz from the game.

Matusz will appeal the suspension, which is the same doled out to Brewers reliever Will Smith after he was caught with an illegal substance on his arm earlier in the week.

"Each case is different and that's why you have the appeal process to make sure it's not just some blanket punishment," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "I'm sure that's why it's in place, to find out if this is different. You've got to start somewhere and that's why the process is in place. And when it's over and said and they decide how many games it is compared to everything else, I'll probably be a little more opinionated on it."

Matusz is 1-2 with a 3.18 ERA in 14 appearances this season.

"I went down there on a mission," he said. "Coming into spring training this year, I wanted to focus more on my catching and I tried to do that. I went down there and played very well. Just tried to concentrate on my catching and helping the pitchers do what they can do best, and that's pitch and not worry about anything else. I was just playing solid defense down there."

Lavarnway appeared in just 10 games (eight starts) for Baltimore. He hit .107 (3 for 28) with one double, no home runs and no RBI.

Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen didn't factor into the decision on Monday, allowing three earned runs on 11 hits in five innings while striking out six and walking none in his team's 4-3 win over the Astros.

Chen was staked to a 2-0 lead after the second inning, but he served up a solo home run in the third inning and followed it up by giving up two runs on a bloop single in the fifth. It was the first time in six starts that the starter failed to complete six innings.

"I allowed a lot of hits today," Chen said through interpreter Louis Chao, per MASNSports.com. "But I'm thankful for my teammates, who played good defense behind me. That ball wasn't hit that hard, but it dropped in a bad place for me. All I can do after that is manage damage control."

Chen owns a 3.13 ERA and 44:14 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rays on Saturday.

Wright faced the minimum hitters through four innings, but ran into some issues in the fifth. After hitting leadoff man Martin Prado, Wright picked up two quick outs. Then after a walk put two men on, Wright forced a groundout to end the inning.

Wright, who remains 1-0, maintained his perfect 0.00 ERA in 14 1/3 innings of work.

"It's special. He got his first base hit tonight," manager Buck Showalter said to MASN Sports. "He'll probably like that more. So proud of him and Oliver. I know you all get tired of me talking about those guys, what's going on down there, but we're getting to see a reflection of it. We were short in the bullpen and those guys gave us meaningful (innings). ... To think we were going to get that out of them. Sleep fast and see if we've got enough people to get through tomorrow."

He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the White Sox.

Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez had a rough outing in Sunday’s 5-2 loss to the Marlins.

Gonzalez went just four innings and allowed five earned runs and 10 hits in the outing. He walked three batters and only struck out two. All five runs were spread out from the second through fifth innings.

Gonzalez was relieved in the fifth inning before the Orioles recorded an out.

"Fastball command wasn't there for him," manager Buck Showalter said to MASN Sports. "That's something that's been really solid for him, and usually the pitch counts and sequences that he has in his favor weren't there.

"We got another great outing out of a call-up from Norfolk, Chaz (Roe). That was really impressive. And Brian (Matusz) gave us two needed innings. We're just trying to get back on our feet because we know that there's a chance we'll be playing with a six-man bullpen shortly." 

Gonzalez has now allowed nine earned runs in his past two games. His ERA now sits at 3.83 for the season.

His next start is projected for Friday against the Rays.
