SARASOTA, Fla. -- It's a busy day here at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex. Ubaldo Jimenez arrived here this morning for his physical, and South Korean pitcher Suk-min Yoon is also here for his first workout with the Orioles. Yoon entered the clubhouse this morning and went to catcher Matt Wieters' locker and shook his hand. The club will hold a news conference at noon. Yoon didn't participate in the full workout today. Instead, he did some light throwing and ran sprint drills with strength and conditioning coach Joe Hogarty.

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.

With more freezing weather on the way, I offer an 18-step plan for staying warm and sufficiently fed, making optimum use of the stove for heating and for creating enough meals for the remainder of the week. This is what humans have desired since the Middle Paleolithic period: fire, warmth, cooked proteins and vegetables, resulting in comfort food and comfortable domicile. It's all in my plan. Not only will several hours of early-morning cooking compensate for the inadequacies of your home-heating system; you'll get a good workout, an exercise in multitasking and a warm glow all over For this, you need to have: a whole chicken, a pound of Italian sausage, potatoes, yellow onions, flour, vegetable oil, olive oil, yeast, celery, two large cans of tomato sauce, a dozen eggs, butter, milk, garlic, rice, penne pasta, carrots and the basic seasonings that can be found in most kitchens.
