Some tidbits…

*Justin Turner had a nice little shiner going on underneath his bandaged left foot. He was struck during Saturday’s night batting practice by a ball hit by Garrett Atkins. Turner said today he might be ready to play again on Monday. Turning joked that the timing was unfortunate, given that he had homered in Friday’s game. “Just when I was starting to get hot with all four of my spring at-bats,” he said.

*Cesar Izturis
is in today’s lineup and said he’s feeling much better. He had a sore throat and was a late scratch from Friday’s game as well.

*Infielder Ryan Adams was summoned from the minor league
camp and was in the clubhouse this morning. With Turner out and Brian Roberts still slowed with a herniated disc in his lower back, Adams is here to provide some middle infield depth. At, Class-A Frederick last season, he hit 288 with two homers and 25 RBIs in 59 games, and will wear No. 96 for the Orioles.
