The Orioles play a night game against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight in Clearwater, so we're getting off to a slow start today. Two minor league games are going on at the Ed Smith Complex, where closer Mike Gonzalez is about to pitch an inning to see if he'll be sound enough to pitch in an exhibition game on Sunday.
We'll know more about Koji Uehara when the clubhouses open at 2 p.m., but I'm guessing the news won't be great. He arrived a little while ago and the Japanese reporters said he was limping slightly.
Some good news, x-rays on the bruilsed left index finger of catching prospect Craig Tatum revealed no fracture.
