Quiet so far as Orioles open spring training

The Orioles' official reporting day has been uneventful, so far. Some players are working out already, but the first organized pitcher/catcher workout will be Wednesday afternoon, following physicals.

Pitcher Wei-Yin Chen spent some time with the Taiwanese media, but there is very limited media access today. General manager Dan Duquette and manager Buck Showalter will hold their first news briefing today at 12:30. Not expecting any startling revelations, but you never know.

Duquette has been known to make significant moves late in the offseason. He acquired Jason Hammel  and Matt Lindstrom for Jeremy Guthrie in early February last year, so it’s always possible that he has something up his sleeve.

Based on last year’s performance, expect the Ed Smith Stadium complex to be a more popular destination for the national media types, though the club’s quiet offseason – at least in terms of big-ticket acquisitions – may temper interest from outside the Baltimore area.
