Rich Hill threw 25 pitches and Koji Uehara threw 35 pitches during their batting practice sessions today, facing Jolbert Cabrera, Felix Pie, Justin Turner and Lou Montanez. Orioles beat writer Jeff Zrebiec reports that Hill's command of the fastball was spotty, but he did snap off some nice breaking balls, one of which prompted Pie to say it was "the best curveball in the league."
Schedule update: Manager Dave Trembley has scheduled an intrasquad game for the offday Wednesday to make up for the innings lost to the rainout yesterday. Rich Hill is tentatively scheduled to pitch that day. Uehara probably will pitch Tuesday against the Washington Nationals.
"I was thinking that would be a day when I just brought in a few guys,'' Trembley said, "I just can't do that."
