A funeral procession for retired Anne Arundel County police chief George Wellham is expected to cause traffic congestion Saturday morning between Linthicum Heights and Southwest Baltimore. The procession will last from around 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. County police say motorists will probably see delays on I-695 West from Linthicum Heights to I-95 North, and on I-95 to Caton Avenue. The procession will end at Loudon Park Cemetery on Wilkens Ave. in Baltimore. Anne Arundel police will provide traffic control along the route and help drivers with alternate routes.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Just minutes into the news conference that introduced him Thursday morning as the Orioles' largest signing of a free-agent pitcher in franchise history, right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez acknowledged the club's uncommonly large investment in him. In the same breath, the 30-year-old pitcher sent a message from Florida's Gulf Coast to welcome ears up north in Baltimore, where the press conference was being televised live. “I know it took a lot for them to bring me here,” said Jimenez, flanked by Orioles manager Buck Showalter and executive vice president Dan Duquette.

SARASOTA, Fla. -  Ubaldo Jimenez is here in Orioles camp again today. His four-year deal is not official yet -- he still must finalize his physical -- but an announcement from the team could come at some point today. Regardless, the Orioles wouldn't hold a news conference to introduce him until Thursday. Jimenez has a locker in the Orioles clubhouse here in Sarasota. According to the name plate, he will wear No. 31. Jimenez will take the No. 31 jersey from right-hander Kevin Gausman  - who is switching his uniform number for the second time this offseason.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Ubaldo Jimenez wasn't officially an Oriole on Tuesday - he arrived at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex Tuesday morning for his club physical and left - but his new teammates welcomed the news that the Orioles agreed to terms with the pitcher on a four-year deal worth about $50 million. The 30-year-old Jimenez, one of the top remaining free-agent starting pitchers, must still pass his physical before the deal can be officially announced and he can join workouts. But inside the Orioles clubhouse, there was immediate buzz about the team's new acquisition.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps get ready to play at Duke at 6 p.m. Saturday night.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Orioles manager Buck Showalter raved about the power infielder Jonathan Schoop has showed in batting practice the past few days. Yesterday, he hit a home run that hit a car in the parking lot on a field where the wind traditionally blows in. Schoop said he put on eight to 10 pounds in the offseason working out with Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar in his native Curacao. “I lifted a lot to get stronger in my legs,” Schoop said. “If you want to play the whole season, you need to be strong and lifting is part of the game.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- I have yet to see South Korean pitcher Suk-min Yoon arrive here at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex, but he is scheduled to have his club physical here this morning. At least I have that selfie he posted the other day for reference. Yoon, who has agreed to terms on a three-year, $5.575-million deal , flew in from Southern California and arrived in Florida on Thursday night. Once Yoon passes his physical, he still must obtain a work visa in South Korea before officially joining the club.
