Left-hander Jimmy Key has shown some improvement since waking up with severe neck stiffness on Thursday, and said last night he hopes to start today."I couldn't move my head yesterday," Key said, "but today it's better and -- hopefully -- it will be much better tomorrow. I guess I'd have to say I'm probable/hopeful."Key was moved back in the rotation after experiencing the muscle spasms in the right side of his neck. Scott Erickson started in his place last night, but manager Davey Johnson has not said who would start today if the stiffness again keeps Key off the mound.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles outfielder David Lough has passed a series of concussion tests and has one more to go through before he can return to games. Lough was scratched from last Friday's game against the Minnesota Twins in Fort Myers, and he hasn't played since after complaining of neck stiffness and concussion symptoms, like dizziness and eye floaters. “They wanted to take precaution and go through a concussion protocol,” Lough said. “I've been taking some tests. I have one more test to take, an impact test, and then I should be cleared to go.” If Lough passes that final test, he's expected to play in Thursday's Triple-A minor league game.

CHICAGO -- Despite not starting for the fourth straight game with a stiff neck, Javy Lopez said he is hoping to be on the lineup card and behind the plate today to resume his pairing with pitcher Rodrigo Lopez. "That's what I am shooting for," Javy Lopez said before last night's game against the Chicago White Sox. "I am feeling better. I am not 100 percent, but tomorrow I should be fine." Javy Lopez was unexpectedly inserted in the eighth inning last night after Ramon Hernandez left with a sore right knee.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis said Tuesday that the stiffness in his neck is getting better, but he added that he will likely still be out of the team's starting lineup for at least the next few days. “It's safe to say a couple more days,” Markakis said. “If the season was going on today, I would probably be able to play today, but its spring so we'll take it easy, nice and slow, no rush.” Markakis was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates when he woke up with a stiff neck.

Despite Brian Roberts ' missing a third straight workout Friday because of a stiff neck, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said the club isn't yet concerned about the status of the team's second baseman and leadoff man. "I don't have any information that would suggest that it's a concern at the present time," MacPhail said. Roberts, who has been sidelined by muscle spasms that he says are unrelated to the herniated disk in his back that limited him to 59 games last year, has been getting daily treatment, and he says he could play if it were the regular season.

Orioles right fielder Chris Davis missed his second straight game Friday night, but he said he's feeling much better from a right trapezius strain and was certain the injury wasn't one that could place him on the disabled list. Davis said he believes the pain came from making a diving catch on Wednesday in Seattle. He woke up Thursday with a stiff neck and made about 10 throws before batting practice before pain in his neck increased. “It was just one of those things where the more I threw the worse it got,” Davis said.

TORONTO - The Orioles need a starter for Monday's game against the New York Yankees at Camden Yards, with this past Wednesday's rainout and the subsequent doubleheader punching a hole in the rotation. Without specifying a date yesterday, Orioles manager Mike Hargrove said he might put left-hander John Parrish in the rotation rather than keep him available in relief during the three-game series in Toronto that began last night. It seems like the perfect match - if perfection is making your major-league debut against the two-time defending world champions.

So far things are going well for the Orioles at Camp Showalter in Sarasota, where it's sunny every day — at least metaphorically — and most of the vibes are positive. Oh, sure, Brian Roberts gave everyone a little scare Wednesday when he missed the morning workout with a sore neck and went for X-rays. The Orioles' second baseman probably led the league in X-rays and MRI's when his bad back sidelined him for most of last season. So the Orioles tend to get jittery whenever he so much as coughs, never mind when he complains of soreness somewhere.

If it were any other player, the news that an Oriole left Ed Smith Stadium to get his stiff neck examined would probably have been greeted with little more than a collective yawn. However, this was Brian Roberts, and questions about his health figure to loom over spring training after he played just 59 games last year because of a herniated disk in his back. "We've probably all had a stiff neck at some point in our life, right?" Roberts said. "I'm not overly concerned. " Roberts had X-rays taken on his neck, and manager Buck Showalter said the second baseman and leadoff man had only muscle spasms, "nothing other than that.

SEATTLE -- Erik Bedard will have to wait two more days to see whether he can extend his streak of 16 scoreless innings. The Orioles left-hander was scratched from his start last night in the series finale against the Seattle Mariners because of a stiff neck. Daniel Cabrera started in his place on three days' rest, pushing Bedard back to tomorrow night's series opener against the Oakland Athletics at McAfee Coliseum. "I don't believe he's 100 percent to make his start, so we're not going to do that," said interim manager Dave Trembley, who told Cabrera and Bedard of his decision after Tuesday's game.

If Jay Gibbons can't turn his head, he can't turn on a fastball, which is keeping him out of the Orioles' lineup for an indefinite period. Gibbons missed another game last night because of spasms in his right trapezius muscle. He's going to switch medications to see if the results are any better. "I've got a little neck issue, something to do with the nerve," Gibbons said. "I usually get a little back spasm up here twice, three times a year, and it's usually two days and it's done. But this is the third day and I'm not ready to play, so I'll change my medication and hopefully it'll get knocked out, the irritation, whenever that happens, tomorrow or the next day."

NEW YORK - While the Orioles appear to embrace the wisdom imparted by pitching coach Ray Miller, a master at his craft, they never want to see him on the field in the first inning. It's just too early for a lecture, the baseball equivalent of scheduling a college course at the break of dawn. But there was Miller, bouncing out of the dugout last night after Rodrigo Lopez issued a walk to load the bases. Five batters into his start against the New York Yankees, and Lopez was giving off enough disturbing signals to bring a visit.
