Left-hander Brian Matusz is in the middle of his bullpen session as I type this blog entry. He’s on the rubber, and he’s supposed to throw his curveball, as well as his fastball.
Looks and sounds like a real side session to me.
Pitching coach Mark Connor is standing next to him.
Chris Jakubauskas also is scheduled to throw a bullpen session today.
I was frightened by the bright light here at Camden Yards before I realized it’s the sun.
The tarp is off the field and the batting cage is on it.
Did you know that the Orioles (Jake Arrieta, Zach Britton and Jeremy Guthrie) join the Phillies (Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt) as the only starting staffs in baseball with three different pitchers that have recorded four quality starts?
The Orioles’ lineup includes Adam Jones batting fifth and Matt Wieters sixth.
