Jeremy Guthrie (right shoulder stiffness) will try to throw a bullpen session tomorrow, and if he gets through it, he'll likely be slotted back into the rotation Tuesday or Wednesday in Minnesota.

Relief Jason Berken (right elbow discomfort) is still awaiting consultation with renowned orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum and Orioles team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens, who is expected to arrive in California later tonight. Berken admitted that it's concerning that his discomfort hasn't subsided despite the fact that he hasn't pitched much. However, he said, "I don't think it's a Tommy John issue at least."

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that he's planning on talking to Jim Johnson during batting practice today. One of the topics will be Johnson's conversion to a starter.
