Os/Pirates lineups and pregame tidbits

*Justin Duchscherer saw a chiropractor this afternoon because of soreness in his left hip. He’s scheduled to receive an MRA at 4 p.m. this afternoon,which is similar to an MRI except it includes an angiography. Dye will be injected into his hip to give a closer look and see if there’s any structural damage.

*Brian Roberts will undergo an MRI on his back this afternoon and visit a back specialist (one he’s seen before) tomorrow.

*Derrek Lee hit off a tee today –picking up a bat for the first time in about a week — and said his right wrist continues to feel better. He’ll hit soft toss and do more tee work today and hopes to take live BP in the next day or two. Lee has been getting daily treatment on his wrist and said he thinks he took it too fast earlier this spring. He’s going to be more patient this time.
 
*Koji Uehara threw a 25-pitch bullpen with no problem today and said, through interpreter Jiwon Bang,that he feels like he’s making progress. Uehara will sit down with the coaching staff tomorrow to determine the next step.

*The Orioles optioned Joe Mahoney to Triple-A Norfolk this afternoon as well. Mahoney was the organization’s Minor League Player of the Year last season.
