Orioles: Penn still in it
It appears that Hayden Penn will get one more chance to prove he belongs in the starting rotation. Manager Dave Trembley said today that he's thinking of sending Mark Hendrickson to pitch in a minor league game on Tuesday or Wednesay, which would leave open the Tuesday slot for Penn, who last started on Thursday.
If you look beyond that, Penn could actually be fighting for the fourth slot in the rotation, since his next time on four days would be Sunday and the following turn would be Friday, April 10. There is no game next Sunday, however, so if that is the plan he might have to stay back and pitch in a minor league situation.
