Updating Simon and Matusz (more on Simon)

Pitcher Alfredo Simon faced 19 batters and threw 64 pitches yesterday in an extended spring training game at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota, Fla.

Manager Buck Showalter told reporters in Chicago that Simon didn't allow a run, struck out six averaged 94 mph with his fastball.

Simon will pitch again on Thursday, though the Orioles haven't determined whether it will happen in Sarasota or with one of their minor league affiliates, according to a team official.

Also, Brian Matusz had a good bullpen session in Sarasota today and will likely throw on the side one more time before pitching in an extended spring training game on Saturday.
