The Orioles’ camp roster

The days continue to melt away before pitchers and catchers report to spring training. I’m actually counting down the hours now as I try to get my life in order before turning it upside down.

The first workout for pitchers and catchers takes place Feb. 13. The first full-squad workout is three days later.

Here’s the list of non-roster invitees:

68 Zach Braddock LHP
75 Kevin Gausman RHP
27 Mark Hendrickson LHP
54 Daniel McCutchen RHP
84 Eduardo Rodriguez LHP
61 Adam Russell RHP
55 Daniel Schlereth LHP
85 Mike Wright RHP

73 Allan de San Miguel
74 Jose Gil
60 Luis Martinez
63 Chris Robinson

45 Travis Ishikawa
69 Niuman Romero

60 Chris Dickerson
51 Lew Ford
36 Conor Jackson
28 Steve Pearce
72 Jason Pridie

Outfielder Trayvon Robinson also will make the list if he clears waivers.

Here’s the updated 40-man roster, which will be adjusted again if pitcher Jair Jurrjens passes his physical:

34 Jake Arrieta RHP
38 Luis Ayala RHP
65 Mike Belfiore LHP
53 Zach Britton LHP
49 Dylan Bundy RHP
16 Wei-Yin Chen LHP
64 Zach Clark RHP
50 Miguel Gonzalez RHP
46 Jason Hammel RHP
29 Tommy Hunter RHP
43 Jim Johnson RHP
52 Steve Johnson RHP
17 Brian Matusz LHP
66 T.J. McFarland LHP
56 Darren O’Day RHP
40 Troy Patton LHP
47 Pedro Strop RHP
30 Chris Tillman RHP
18 Tsuyoshi Wada LHP
?? Todd Redmond RHP

59 Luis Exposito
31 Taylor Teagarden
32 Matt Wieters

24 Wilson Betemit
6 Russ Canzler
12 Alexi Casilla
19 Chris Davis
3 Ryan Flaherty
2 J.J. Hardy
13 Manny Machado
58 Yamaico Navarro
1 Brian Roberts
37 Jonathan Schoop
35 Danny Valencia

70 Xavier Avery
71 LJ Hoes
10 Adam Jones
21 Nick Markakis
9 Nate McLouth
14 Nolan Reimold

Keep these names and numbers handy if you’re heading down to Sarasota to watch the workouts. It may be easier to coax an autograph out of a player if you address him by name instead of yelling, “Hey 58!”

Former Orioles center fielder Al Bumbry will be in camp as an instructor. Here’s the complete list:

9 Brady Anderson
62 Rudy Arias
82 Blaine Beatty
14 Mike Bordick
79 Mike Boulanger
1 Al Bumbry
48 Terry Crowley
67 Ronnie Deck
83 Einar Diaz
76 Brian Graham
91 Mike Griffin
81 Jose Hernandez
86 Ron Johnson
78 Gary Kendall
80 Matt Martin
16 Scott McGregor
87 Rick Peterson
90 Don Werner

I wrote previously that the Orioles had filled one of their four scheduled off days on March 29 with an exhibition game against a local college. They will play the State College of Florida at 2:05 p.m. at Ed Smith Stadium.

The Orioles’ last four games will be held in Sarasota, including back-to-back 7:05 p.m. starts against the New York Yankees on March 27 and the Tampa Bay Rays on March 28. They close against the New York Mets on March 30 at 12:05 p.m.

The Mets actually requested the game.

After that, we load up our rental cars and head to St. Petersburg, Fla., for workouts and the season opener against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

Shameless plug alert: I’m joining Tom Davis for “Wall to Wall Baseball” from 11 a.m.-noon on MASN. I’m calling into Anita Marks’ show on NBC Sports Radio at 1 p.m. to talk Orioles. And I’m joining Jim Hunter on “Hot Stove Baseball” from 1:30-3 p.m. on WBAL Radio. Our guests include executive vice president Dan Duquette and first baseman Chris Davis.

Then I’m disappearing for the rest of the day and night.
