Orioles outfielder Luke Scott will be shut down for a couple of days before trying to resume playing in some rehab games. Scott acknowledged that his shoulder is still giving him trouble, but he's not ready to shut it down yet. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Scott is close to the point where he's going to have to decide how to deal with his shoulder or he could risk not being ready for the start of next season.

Infielder Cesar Izturis (elbow surgery) will play Friday for the Gulf Coast League Orioles, then go to Double-A Bowie on Saturday and Sunday. He'll DH for Bowie on Saturday and play shortstop for the Baysox on Sunday. He could be activated by the Orioles in time for Tuesday's game.

Brian Roberts had migraines yesterday, but Showalter said it was unrelated to his concussion issues and the second baseman was able to do some activities today.

The doctor who has operated on Justin Duchscherer before has recommended the pitcher have another hip surgery. Duchscherer will consult with Orioles orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens before making the decision, but the reality is that nobody expects him to pitch for the Orioles this season. That ship has sailed.

Closer Kevin Gregg, who is scheduled to serve the second game of his three-game suspension tonight, beat the storm and threw a simulated game.
