The Orioles clubhouse remained closed this morning for the annual meeting of the Major League Baseball Players Association. New Executive Director Michael Weiner is making the tour of spring training sites for the first time since replacing Donald Fehr.

The meeting generally touches on every issue facing the players, from the next set of labor negotiations to Bud Selig's new committee re-examining the game and considering issues like realignment.

Today's roster move: The Orioles reassigned pitcher Jake Arrieta to the minor league camp today, reducing the major league spring roster to 47. This was no surprise. Arrieta was never projected as a real candidate for the fifth starter role, and the club would not consider him as a long reliever. His continued development as one of the team's top pitching prospects requires him to start and get more innings than he has been getting in major league camp.

Today's plug: If you haven't already, check out my take on Brian Matusz's performance against the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday right here.
