Right-hander Bud Norris likely will need to either go on a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment or pitch in a simulated game before returning from the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain. “He won't go from just a side day into starting,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He's getting better. I ask [head athletic trainer] Richie [Bancells] and him every day. He's improving. I don't think he can really tell until he's on the mound.” Norris was believed to have a bullpen session scheduled Wednesday, but he will instead participate in pitcher's fielding practice Thursday and now is set to throw his next bullpen session Friday.

Between the games of today's doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox, right-hander Bud Norris - - currently on the disabled list -- will pitch a two- to three-inning simulated game on the field to test his right groin. The Orioles traded pregame batting practice for the right to use the field between games. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that if Norris comes out of the simulated game well, he could be an option to fill Wednesday's starting pitcher slot against the Washington Nationals at Camden Yards.

The Orioles played a game before their game yesterday, using one of their back fields for a little simulated action that didn't lack for interesting -- and at times comical -- moments. Unable to arrange any split-squad games this spring, the Orioles set up a batting cage and had some of their pitchers, including Jeremy Guthrie and Garrett Olson, face a small group of hitters. Triple-A pitching coach Larry McCall and instructor Don Werner took turns serving as the plate umpire while standing behind the cage.

After a 50-pitch simulated game against live hitters yesterday, Ben McDonald was right on schedule in his recovery from a sore elbow."I'm real excited," said McDonald. "That's the best my arm felt since before I hurt it in spring training. In the seven games I did start, it never felt this good."Baltimore Orioles manager John Oates was also pleased wit what he called "normal progress" by McDonald, who is trying to come back from the injury to the pronator muscle he first suffered late in spring training.

Having made it through two throwing sessions without recurring pain in his left hamstring, Doug Drabek is expected to pitch a simulated game in the bullpen tomorrow. From there, the Orioles' right-hander could go on a rehabilitation assignment before being activated from the disabled list.Drabek has been on the DL since Aug. 1 with a strained hamstring. He threw without pain for about 10 minutes in Cleveland on Friday afternoon, and again for about 17 minutes before Monday's game against Minnesota.

Orioles reliever Chris Ray, recovering from ligament reconstruction in his right elbow, pitched a simulated game Wednesday after throwing two batting practice sessions earlier. But manager Dave Trembley indicated that Ray isn't close to appearing in a real game. "He'll just continue his throwing program and mound progression," Trembley said. "He has not been slowed down." Ray remains at the minor league complex in Sarasota, Fla. His goal since spring training has been to rejoin the Orioles by late August or early September, though that might not be realistic.

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez was encouraged by his three-inning simulated game on Tuesday afternoon at Camden Yards and said he hopes to be able to return to the mound in a major league game Tuesday against the New York Yankees. Gonzalez, who has been dealing with a slow-healing blister on the inside of his right thumb, threw 25 pitches in the bullpen and then 50 to 55 in the simulated game, throwing all of his pitches - including breaking balls - to teammates Alexi Casilla, Chris Dickerson and Chris Snyder.

Pat Hentgen took another clean step toward his return to the Orioles' rotation yesterday, throwing batting practice for about 10 minutes before their game against the Anaheim Angels. He's expected to rest today before pitching a simulated game. Within a few days, Hentgen could be headed to one of the Orioles' minor-league affiliates to begin a rehabilitation assignment as the final stage of his recovery from a sprained elbow ligament. He hasn't appeared in a real game since May 16. Brook Fordyce, Tony Batista and Mike Kinkade served as Hentgen's opposition, taking their swings while he threw from behind a protective screen.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles pitcher Pat Hentgen pitched six innings without pain in a simulated game at the club's minor-league training complex yesterday, keeping the team optimistic that he can be back in the starting rotation by September. Hentgen, who is nearly 12 months removed from ligament-replacement surgery in his right elbow, will likely begin his 30-day, minor-league rehabilitation assignment this weekend. The tentative plan is to have him make one start for Rookie-level Sarasota, and then gradually climb the ladder from Frederick to Bowie to Rochester before returning to the Orioles.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Catcher Caleb Joseph started again Wednesday, his fourth start in the Orioles' last five games. This time, Joseph started against a right-hander after making his previous three starts against left-handers. Joseph had just two hits in his first 29 at-bats in the major leagues before he went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Rangers for his first career multihit game. He opened up the Orioles' six-run eighth inning with an RBI double. Joseph said he and hitting coach Jim Presley made an impromptu adjustment in his stance before that at-bat.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon has yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game and likely won't until late next week at the earliest. Yoon is slated to spend most of next week in Canada obtaining his work visa. He will fly to Ottawa on Sunday and has an interview appointment on Monday morning. That process is expected to take a few days, but it beats the alternative of Yoon traveling back to South Korea to get his visa - which would involve lengthy travel and missing extended time in camp.

TORONTO -- Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen pitched a three-inning simulated game -- a 47-pitch outing -- on Thursday at the club's spring training facility in Sarasota, Fla., throwing all of his pitches with no setbacks. His next step in his rehabilitation from a left oblique strain will be a four-inning simulated game on Monday. If all goes well there, Chen will rejoin the club in Baltimore for a work day with the team. Chen would then go on a minor league rehab assignment, where he would start with a five-inning stint by the end of the next week.

Miguel Gonzalez, who has been on the disabled list since May 9 (retroactive to May 4) with a blister on his right thumb, will start against the Yankees on Tuesday. He said it's been difficult to not be able to pitch in a game while not really being injured. “I've been telling the guys that it is frustrating not to be out there because of a blister,” said Gonzalez, who is 2-2 with a 4.58 ERA in six starts this season. “And it's not an injury or anything like that. You just have to sit down and wait for it to heal.” Since he threw 80-plus pitches in a simulated game Friday and the blister appears to be healed, Gonzalez said he believes he'll be able to pitch as long as he is needed on Tuesday.

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who has not pitched since developing a deep blister on his right thumb May 3 in Anaheim, is getting closer to appearing in a big league game. Gonzalez threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Wednesday, the last few without a bandage covering the thumb (he won't be able to use a covering in a game). He said he came out feeling “really good.” “The ball was coming out good,” Gonzalez said. “The breaking pitches were fine. I was pretty happy about my performance.” Gonzalez is next scheduled to pitch in a simulated game Friday afternoon at Camden Yards so that the team can best control the environment.

The Orioles open their four-game home series against the Chicago White Sox tonight at Camden Yards. The White Sox have won six straight and 21 of their last 31. Their 54-34 record since May 17 is the second-best record in that span in all of baseball, just behind Cincinnati's 58-35 mark. Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start for the Orioles tonight. Chen (12-7), who has won four of his last five starts, won his first major league game against the White Sox on April 17, allowing two runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings in a 3-2 win at U.S. Cellular Field.
