Last night, I wrote that Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Chris Dickerson would join the Orioles in Boston today.

The tweet that Dickerson sent from his personal Twitter account (@CDickerson_PFTP) would also indicate we will see him at Fenway Park tonight.

“Rise and shine!! Nice little birthday present, a trip to #Boston. A W would be even better. Time for takeoff,” Dickerson tweeted this morning.

Following the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Red Sox on Monday, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked whether the shuttle from Norfolk would start this Wednesday. Showalter said no definitively, indicating he’s not ready to create a roster rotation yet. Last season, the Orioles used 52 different players, but most of those moves were due to a rash of injuries.

The Orioles' designated hitters have been woeful this season, going 1-for-23 through seven games, but Showalter said Monday that it's too early to make much of that stat.

Dickerson is 3-for-15 this season at Norfolk, and since he plays all three outfield positions, the easy guess is that he’s here to replace Nolan Reimold, who left Sunday’s game with right hamstring tightness.

Reimold and Showalter were both optimistic that Reimold could avoid the disabled list Monday. Showalter added that the key decision would be whether the Orioles would be able to rest Reimold today against right-hander Ryan Dempster so he could get two extra days rest, including Tuesday's off day, and return to the lineup Thursday.
