Dave Trembley said during his pre-game news briefing that Felix Pie came to the ballpark today but was continuing to experience stomach discomfort, so he has been sent for further evaluation.
The problem apparently is not related to his hard landing on a diving catch attempt on Tuesday night.
"It's some kind of stomach ailment,'' Trembley said. "He didn't hurt himself. It's not anything baseball-related."
The Orioles are not planning to make a roster move. Trembley said Luke Scott would take batting practice today and decide whether his sore shoulder feels good enough for him to be available as a pinch hitter. If not, the O's will go with a two-man bench.
"I'm confident Scott is going to be all right,'' Trembley said. "He was very upbeat. He seems to think he'll be fine. I'm optimistic he'll be able to pinch hit tonight."
"We'll get by,'' said Trembley, who was forced to put designated hitter Ty Wigginton into the game in left field when Pie fell ill last night.
