Lineups and such ...

Ramon Ortiz gets the start today, with Glen Perkins to follow. If Perkins has another strong outing this afternoon, he'll continue to challenge Matt Garza and Sidney Ponson (manager Ron Gardenhire said he's still happy with how Ponson is working and that they're giving him time to get going because he's a veteran) for the fifth spot in the Twins rotation.

Talked to Rondell White this morning. He had an elastic wrap on his knee. He said he's pretty sore, but expects to be back in a couple days. He was hit by a pitch in the same spot in 1995 and said it didn't take long to recover from that.

Check back for updates on Ortiz's and Perkins' outings. Until then, here are today's Twins/Orioles lineups. So early in the morning, I know!
