The Orioles have scheduled meetings later today with the agents for Japanese pitchers Kenshin Kawakami and Koji Uehara. Former baseball executive Dan Evans represents Kawakami and Mark Pieper represents Uehara.
Both pitchers are 33 years old and are coming off solid careers in Japan, but are considered by scouts to be likely No. 4 or No. 5 starters in the American major leagues.
