Orioles: Uehara's first workout
Koji Uehara is the top attraction in camp, of course, since the Japanese media greatly outnumber the handful of American reporters and bloggers that cover the Orioles regularly. That won't change all spring. He looked sharp during the afternoon fielding drills, but did not throw off a mound. His next throwing session will be tomorrow.
Uehara held court with the Japanese media, then took a few questions through his interpreter. He said the drills are "basically the same" as they do at training camp in Japan, but repeated that the major differences are the length of the workouts -- they are much shorter here -- and the.fact that the players move from station to station here.
More roster stuff: Non-catching position players continue to filter in, though they don't have to report until Wednesday. Luke Scott was in the clubhouse. So were non-roster invitees Scott Moore and Justin Christian.
