Monday Bird Droppings

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

After finishing up their series against the Astros on a down note, the Orioles get right back into it against the Tigers tonight who, for what it's worth, just a lost a series against the Twins. For followers of the Baby Birds, take note that Hunter Harvey takes his turn in the rotation for the Delmarva Shorebirds today.
