Hendrickson scratched

Pitcher Mark Hendrickson was scratched from his scheduled appearance today with a sore back. Manager Dave Trembley said Hendrickson estimated he would need a couple of days to rest it. No one was added to the roster of pitchers today to replace him.

"We've got enough pitching,'' Trembley said.

Adam Eaton will throw a bullpen session tomorrow before the coaching staff decides on his exhibition schedule. He hasn't pitched since last Wednesday.

What is going on with all of these pitchers coming up lame? I hope these are minor injuries. If not, I want to question their off season training regiments.

All this talk of pitcher's having ailing backs , and ailing arms , seems to be just shrugged off as no big deal given the fact it's early . If you ask me its not a good sign . just sayin'

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
