Brandon Crawford (fingers) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Padres.

Not surprising, as Crawford sprained the index and middle fingers on his right hand during Tuesday's game and is dealing with some swelling. There's a chance he could return Thursday. Joaquin Arias is starting at shortstop Wednesday while Tony Abreu plays third.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Jake Arrieta will join the starting rotation with Triple-A Norfolk.
Arrieta was optioned to the minors after he gave up five runs on 10 hits and a walk over 4 2/3 innings Monday in a spot-start against the Tigers. The 27-year-old right-hander has a 7.23 ERA in five starts in the majors this season and a 5.50 ERA in six starts and one relief appearance in Triple-A, but the Orioles aren't considering changing his role yet.
