Pre-game Dave

O's manager Dave Trembley confirmed that Rich Hill will begin his injury rehabilitation assignment with a start for Frederick on Friday night. If all goes well, he'll throw 65 pitches and then bump up to 80-85 in his next outing. He was assigned to the Class-A club because it was the team in the area that will be at home this weekend. His future outings probably will be at either Bowie or Frederick, depending on which is home.

"Frederick is the only team at home, so we'll start there,'' Trembley said.

Trembley also explained that he scratched Adam Jones from Tuesday night's start partly because his hamstring was still tight and partly because of the rain delay and the likelihood that the field would be damp.

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.
