I've been running errands all morning, and I'm heading down to Nationals Park shortly for the game between the Orioles and Washington Nationals.

Therefore, unfortunately, I don't have much time to post anything more than probable pitchers for today's games for the full-season affiliates in the Orioles' minor league system.

The Triple-A Norfolk Tides continue their series against the Rochester Red Wings, and the Double-A Bowie Baysox face the Harrisburg Senators again. The Single-A Frederick Keys play the Kinston Indians, and the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds host the Kannapolis Intimidators.

For all the people who keep asking, I believe Jason Berken will be the pitcher called up to start on Tuesday for the Orioles. I don't have any inside scoop on the subject, but that's my personal hunch because it would be his turn in the rotation for the Tides on that night.

David Hernandez looked impressive with 14 strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings against Rochester last night. Keep in mind, however, that the 24-year-old right-hander threw 114 pitches (84 strikes), so it's probably asking him a lot to make his major-league debut on short rest.

The Shorebirds activated infielder Jedidiah Stephen from the disabled list and sent infielder Javier Santana back to extended spring training.

It's Family Fitness Night at Harry Grove Stadium tonight, and former NBA player Gheorghe Muresan will be in attendance. There will also be fireworks after the game in Frederick.
