Orioles: Trembley highlights

Late morning with Dave included some updates on the banged up pitchers:

-- He confirmed that Rich Hill had gone for an MRI, but claimed it's just to confirm the x-rays, which showed no structural issues.

"He's getting the whole kit and kaboodle,'' said Trembley, who also cast doubt on the likelihood of Hill pitching in tomorrow's intrasquad game.

-- Brad Hennessey has increased his exercise program could start throwing again later this week.

-- Newly signed pitcher Adam Eaton is due in tomorrow.

-- Danys Baez and Jamie Walker are among the pitchers who will take part in an Orange and Black intrasquad game. The seven-inning game will be managed by Gary Allenson and Richie Hebner.

-- Trembley on whether both Ty Wigginton and Chris Gomez can both make the Opening Day roster:

"I can see that,'' he said. "I'd say Wigginton doesn't have to worry about making the team. It depends on 12 or 13 (pitchers)."

-- Gotta love this comment on top 2008 draft choice Brian Matusz, who has looked very good in his early outings, but definitely will not make the team out of spring training:

"He's got a twinkle in his eye. He's got a lot of confidence. He's got a tool box and he knows what to do with the tools in that toolbox."

Pete--I have a toolbox and don't have a clue of what to do with them. Thank God my wife knows what they're for and handles them well.

Just another reason why I married her 18 years ago today.

And, yes how I do wish we were down there in South Beach right now.

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.
