Orioles take 12 pitchers in ALDS vs Yankees
The 12-man staff includes starters Jason Hammel, Wei-Yin Chen, Miguel Gonzalez, Chris Tillman and Joe Saunders. But manager Buck Showalter says Saunders and Tillman will be available out of the bullpen for Game 1 on Sunday night because Hammel has a balky right knee and is making only his third start since mid-July.
Rookie Steve Johnson, opening-day starter Jake Arrieta and right-hander Zach Britton were not on the roster. But Showalter added, ''Every one of those guys has to have the mindset they're playing tomorrow.''
