• Garrett Jones was the designated hitter and hit fourth on Wednesday, becoming the fifth DH the team has used in five games in American League parks.

The Orioles announced on Wednesday afternoon that right-hander Jake Arrieta would start in place of left-hander Brian Matusz, who bruised his nose fouling off a pitch on a bunt attempt during batting practice.

Jones has hit safely in eight of his last nine games but is hitless in his last 21 at-bats against lefties. He is hitting .266 with seven homers and 21 RBIs against righties this season.
