Brian Matusz threw a bullpen session today, but he's not scheduled to pitch in this series. The struggling lefty was originally scheduled to start tomorrow, but he's being skipped. Manager Buck Showalter didn't rule out Matusz's starting in the coming Yankees series in New York.
Starter Tommy Hunter, who went to the hospital after his start yesterday because he was feeling ill, has joined the team here. However, he's still not feeling great and has been told to stay back at the team hotel.
Starter Jo-Jo Reyes left the team to be with his wife, who has gone into labor. Showalter isn't sure when he will return.
First baseman Chris Davis (right shoulder strain) will be sent out for a rehab assignment Sunday, Showalter said. It's possible he'll join the team at some point in New York early next week.
Pedro Strop, the player to be named from the Texas Rangers in the Michael Gonzalez deal, has joined the team and will be available to pitch tonight. Strop said he was pleased to join the Orioles and called it a "great opportunity" for his career.
