Japanese pitcher Koji Uehara threw his second bullpen this morning, drawing the usual number of Asian and American journalists. His command was good and he showed off his sharp-breaking forkball.
He was flanked on one side by Jake Arrietta, whose fastball was crisp, and Jamie Walker, who looked like Jamie Walker. Don't kid yourselves. Walker will have a good spring. His struggles last year notwithstanding, he is a particularly tough guy to face this type of year.
Luke Scott said he will shave his bushy lumberjack beard before the start of the first full-squad workout tomorrow. I think he's just waiting for the environmental impact report.
The Orioles will hold open ballboy and ballgirl tryouts at noon on March 7 at Oriole Park. Former O's pitcher Dave Johnson and longtime umpires attendant Ernie Tyler, along with some members of the front office staff, will evaluate the candidates. Bring your own glove.
