First baseman Derrek Lee (strained left oblique) hit off a tee and will take live batting practice tomorrow in Sarasota, Fla. Mmanager Buck Showalter didn't rule out Lee's starting a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie by the weekend.

Despite the fact that lefty Erik Bedard is on the mound for the Mariners, Jake Fox is again not in the lineup. Asked whether it's tough finding Fox opportunities, Showalter said: "If the guy is playing well and hitting well, it's not that hard to find opportunities. Jake, so far, hasn't made good use of the opportunities that he's had, with a few exceptions. In spring with that environment, he showed what he's capable of. We'll see."

The Orioles still expect Jake Arrieta, who was nailed in the left shin by Ichiro Suzuki's come-backer yesterday, to make his next start.
