Orioles: Change in routine
The huge number of pitchers (37) in camp already have forced manager Dave Trembley to alter his workout schedule. It's only the second day, but Trembley added several extra fielding drills to the routine to keep the camp moving.
"There were too many guys standing around,'' Trembley said. "Yesterday, there were times when there were 12 guys lined up behind a mound."
So, yesterday, there were pitchers taking ground balls at shortstop to get some extra hand-to-eye work. It was the kind of thing Daniel Cabrera should have been required to do early in his career to improve his athleticism. If the young pitchers struggle to field those balls cleanly and effortlessly, they will get a little extra tutoring in the morning.
