Derek on the blog again today for the

Derek on the blog again today for the series finale.

The Orioles have a chance at the three-game sweep today and will send Jason Hammel to the mound to try to get it done.

*Wei-Yin Chen (strained oblique) will throw from a half-mound Thursday in Sarasota. If that goes well he’ll throw from a full mound Saturday and be evaluated from there.

*Dylan Bundy (right flexor mass tightness) is still just playing catch on flat ground, according to to plan.

*Alexi Casilla (right index finger) had much better range of motion in his finger today and said he was going to test it before the game. He’s not in the starting lineup, but was hopeful that he’d be ready if he was needed to throw. As with yesterday, he says his legs are working fine, so he can pinch-run.

*Brian Roberts (hamstring) took batting practice in the cages at Camden Yards today.

*Wilson Betemit (right knee) took ground balls yesterday in Sarasota.
