Danys Baez clearly was disappointed by the news that his attempt to come back from elbow reconstruction to win a place in the Orioles rotation has come to an end. He was told early today that he would compete from now on for a place in the bullpen.

"That's a management decision,'' he said. "There's nothing I can do. I came into spring training and I think I did good. I worked super hard during the offseason to get to this point and there's nothing else I can do."

Still, he insisted that he's happy with his recovery and the fact that he was able to get up to 77 pitches in his last exhibition appearance.

"I'm not frustrated,'' he said. "I'm super happy that I am back on the team and super happy because the first day, to be honest, the first day I thought I might have to start somewhere else because my arm was super sore the next day. But after that, it was great. I never missed one start. That was great for me. I gotta change my mind now. The only thing I've got to work on is pitching back to back. I don't know if I can do that now, but we have to work on it."
