SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles pitchers and catchers aren't required to report until tomorrow, but several early arrivals worked out Wednesday morning at the club's spring training complex at Ed Smith Stadium.
There was no clubhouse access today -- so if South Korean pitcher Suk-min Yoon was hiding in there, I wouldn't have seen him -- but I was free to watch the morning workout here in sunny Florida.
Since it wasn't an official workout today, both major league and minor league players participated. Among the major league pitchers who threw side sessions were Steve Johnson, T.J. McFarland, Eduardo Rodriguez and Mike Wright.
Among the position players already here are Nick Markakis, Chris Davis, Ryan Flaherty, David Lough, Jonathan Schoop, Alexi Casilla and Cord Phelps. Catchers Matt Wieters, Steve Clevenger and Johnny Monell are here, as well.
As pitchers ran conditioning drills, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen worked on an agility drill off to the side as part of his rehab from offseason right knee surgery, running from cone to cone and picking up a baseball being rolled to him and tossing it back.
