Pregame concerns:

Interesting lineup tonight. Bobby Abreu (0-10) and Jason Giambi (0-2) both take seats against the lefty Burres. ... Molina is playing for the first time since coming down with a hamstring injury on April 13. ... Joba Chamberlain should be available for the game. Edwar Ramirez will most likely be sent down in favor of Chamberlain.
  • Burres is 1-2 with a 4.64 ERA in seven games (three starts) against New York.
  • Matsui is 2-5 with two home runs against Burres.
  • Cabrera is 4-9 against Burres.
  • Molina is 2-5 against Burres.

  • Kennedy has never faced the Orioles or any of their hitters.
