Player Notes: 

Starting pitcher Alex Cobb is set to rejoin the Orioles' rotation next week against the Minnesota Twins. The 31-year-old, who's been out with a lumbar strain, played catch with no issues Saturday and is set for a bullpen session. 

Dwight Smith Jr. was scratched from the O's lineup Sunday with a sore leg. It appears the outfielder will be fine as he's available off the bench. Cedric Mullins took his place. 

Right-handed pitcher John Means threw five innings in the team's loss to the Red Sox Sunday. In his second career major league start, the 26-year-old scattered four hits and a walk while striking out three.
