Ubaldo Jimenez is scheduled to throw 65 pitches in his first rehab start on Tuesday for Aberdeen. Jimenez last pitched on July 5 and a few days later sprained his right ankle.

Aberdeen is the only one of the local affiliates that’s home on Tuesday. If Jimenez pitched four days later, Norfolk and Delmarva are at home, and Frederick is playing at Wilmington.

NOTES: Chris Tillman, Kevin Gausman and Bud Norris are scheduled to pitch for the Orioles against the Angels in the three-game series that begins Tuesday night. Jered Weaver, Garrett Richards and Tyler Skaggs pitch for Los Angeles.

-Dave Wallace will miss Friday and Saturday’s games to attend his daughter’s wedding. Scott McGregor will fill in.

-This is the final game of the second and final 10-game road trip. The Orioles played 10 games in Milwaukee, Houston and Texas earlier this year. Their longest road trip in the final two months is a nine-game trip to Cleveland and Chicago where they will play both the White Sox and Cubs.
