Team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens examined Brian Roberts this morning and prescribed more anti-inflammatory medication. The club will wait a few days to see how his back and stomach respond to it.
The Orioles will play a seven-inning B-squad game against the Marlins tomorrow at 10 a.m. at Ed Smith Stadium. Mark Hendrickson will start, followed by Mike Gonzalez, Dennis Sarfate, Kam Mickolio, Mike Hinckley and Chris George. Sean West will start for the Marlins.
Nolan Reimold will serve as the designated hitter. Manager Dave Trembley noted that Reimold ran “much better” last night.
The Orioles will use some players from the minor league camp to fill out the B roster. How convenient to have them so close.

Jeremy Guthrie will start the regular game tomorrow against the Yankees in Tampa.
