Javy Lopez was exhausted after yesterday's workout at Orioles camp, and no wonder. He took more grounders at first base and also participated in catching drills, ending his afternoon by racing for "errant throws" behind first base and preventing the ball from going into the dugout.

Another instructor, Carlos Bernhardt, and first base coach Dave Cash had separate talks with him.
