Right-hander Jair Jurrjens, who signed a minor league deal Friday, threw his first bullpen session in an Orioles uniform Sunday, mixing 45 pitches between a 20-minute session off a full mound and 10 minutes in the team's indoor batting cages throwing with hitters in the batter's box. The Orioles' contract with Jurrjens went from a $1.5 million major league deal to a minor league deal when the team had concerns about the health of the pitcher's right...

HOUSTON -- Catcher Matt Wieters' second light throwing session was successful, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. It was much like his first session on Friday, when he made 25 throws from about 75 feet while playing catch with bench coach John Russell. The Orioles are optimistic that Wieters, who is on the disabled list with right elbow discomfort, can return this season and avoid surgery, but Showalter said, even in the best-case scenario, he wouldn't expect Wieters to return within the next two weeks.

Eleven pitchers threw their first bullpen sessions Wednesday, and Buck Showalter liked his first impression of left-hander T.J. McFarland, the team's Rule 5 pick in December. “He was impressive today,” Showalter said. “It's kind of nice. You see so much tape of these guys coming in and you read so many reports, and to be able to actually see them live, it's always a different look. Quickly, you can see why he's had success, the deception he has in his delivery. McFarland was maybe a guy who caught my eye today.” McFarland, who was 16-8 with a 4.03 ERA in 27 starts with the Cleveland Indians' Triple-A and Double-A affiliates last season, is a career starting pitcher, and the Orioles intend on him competing for a rotation spot.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles pitching coach Dave Wallace watched intently from behind the mound as Ubaldo Jimenez threw his first bullpen session in an Orioles uniform Thursday. It was the first mound session Jimenez has thrown in a while - Wallace said he's thrown off flat ground - but Wallace isn't concerned that Jimenez is behind. “I think it's early enough that he can catch up,” Wallace said. “He threw a light side today and felt pretty good. … If he's behind a few days it's not a big issue right now. You look at him, he's long he's lean and he's been healthy of the course of his career, so we'll talk to him and get his feel for how he's gone through spring training and what works for him and go from there.

“If you can walk, you can jump,” says Danny Serpico, whose new business venture relies on the fun (and vigor) of bouncing. The 31,000-square-foot Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park -- more trampoline than flooring -- has a lineup of activities for a variety of ages. Dodgeball, basketball and a foam pit appeal to teens and tweens for special events on Friday and Saturday nights, while toddlers get their own special jump time on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. “It's a safe environment that you can bring your family and friends,” says manager Serpico, a Columbia native.

When nearly 44 percent of its members are newcomers, predicting what will happen is extraordinarily difficult. That's the case with the 1995 General Assembly, which begins its 90-day session in the State House tomorrow. With so many freshmen lawmakers, the tenor and direction of the legislature are wrapped in mystery.The size of the incoming class of legislators is unmatched in modern times. Will that mean revolutionary changes, or extreme caution in taking controversial action?It will be different, though.

The Orioles' second workout for pitchers and catchers will begin at 10 a.m. Expect much of the same as Day 1, but a second group of pitchers will throw their first bullpen side sessions of the spring. It's overcast here at the Ed Smith Stadium complex and there's an 80 percent chance of showers, but it looks like the Orioles will get their workout in before the storms arrive this afternoon. We will get our first look at 2012 first-round pick Kevin Gausman. The Orioles' No. 2 prospect behind right-hander Dylan Bundy will throw his first bullpen today.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Tsuyoshi Wada realizes he's still a long way to go in his tedious return from Tommy John surgery, but the Japanese left-hander still hopes to make his major league debut soon. Wednesday was the Orioles' first workout for pitchers and catchers, and Wada leaned up against a gate and watched as his teammates opened with long-toss throwing sessions, but he was cleared to participate in pitchers fielding practice drills. It'll still be about three to four weeks before Wada will be able to throw his first bullpen session, and he's gradually building up his throwing distance in a long-toss program he began in November.

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton appears at least one more day closer to returning to full form. Britton, who is rehabbing from left shoulder inflammation, had his second bullpen session moved up one day to today, throwing about 30 pitches off a full mound. Originally he was slated to have two days off after his first session Friday and throw again Monday. "I think it was a lot better than the first one," Britton said. "I felt more comfortable on the mound today. I was able to make adjustments a lot quicker, too, and I was throwing a little bit harder, my tempo was a little better.

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton , limited to a throwing progression program because of left-shoulder inflammation, will throw his first bullpen session Friday. Britton, who lead the team in wins last season as a rookie with an 11-11 record and 4.61 ERA in 28 starts, completed his fourth round of throwing a total of 120 pitches from 60, 90 and 120 feet from flat ground — a routine done to mainly raise his pitch count — and will now take two days off before throwing his first bullpen session from a full mound Friday, then another Monday.
