Scott "Don't Call Me Mark" Williamson has passed his physical, too. I guess that elbow held up under the stress test of scratching his stomach without snapping a ligament.
Executive vice president Mike Flanagan said the Orioles would have space on their 40-man roster by early next week, in case they want to select a player in the Rule 5 draft.
I hear Joe Borowski failed his physical with the Phillies. I guess the Orioles chose the right relievers.
They might have signed a few more tonight during the elevator ride from the warehouse offices to the lobby. I'm not sure.
Another clarification: Nobody with the team said the Orioles had targeted center fielders Andruw Jones, Vernon Wells and Torii Hunter, who can be free agents after next season. It was just acknowledged that there are three pretty good center fielders who could go on the market.
