The 31-year-old's return timeline was murky earlier this week, but he threw a bullpen session Thursday and is now expected to take the mound for Saturday's contest, barring a setback. Lyles was scratched from his previously scheduled start in Monday's doubleheader versus Toronto due to an illness, but it appears his absence will be limited to one turn through the rotation. He has a record of 2-1 with an ERA of 5.66 and 33 strikeouts in 7 appearances versus the Red Sox in his career.

The Red Sox are now 2-5 when have played on the road against the Orioles this season.

The Orioles will send Jordan Lyles who was sharp in his last start but has struggled against the Red Sox in his career. We're getting great value with the Red Sox as underdogs here as they have the better pitcher on the mound and last time was very close. Take the Red Sox.
