Koji, D Lee and B-Rob could play this weekend
Manager Buck Showalter said if all goes well, Koji Uehara, Derrek Lee and Brian Roberts could see game action this weekend.
“I got all three slated sometime this weekend if things stay on schedule,” Showalter said.
Uehara threw a bullpen session on Wednesday while Lee did tee work and soft toss. Roberts hit from both sides of the plate off the tee and Showalter said he also did some coaches’ bp. The plan is for Lee to take live bp in the next day or two.
Asked what the odds were that both Lee and Roberts were on the Orioles’ Opening Day roster, Showalter said: “If they don’t have any setbacks we will.”
*Justin Duchscherer’s situation hasn’t changed. He will rest and let the dye from his MRA kind of run its course. He said yesterday he might try to do some light catch.
*Also Zach Britton will start in a Minor League game on Tuesday. With Chris Tillman and him on the same day, and stretched to about five innings each, Britton will throw to Triple-A hitters.
