Greetings from Tampa, where the Orioles will take on the Yankees.

*Adam Jones and his fiancee welcomed a baby boy yesterday in Baltimore and the expectation is he will return to play in Sunday’s game.

*Pitching prospect Mike Wright reported to Minor League camp yesterday has been dealing with right elbow tendinitis, which probably explains why he wasn’t as crisp in camp as the organization had hoped. Wright, who was reassigned on Sunday, allowed a run on three hits and three walks over three innings with a pair of strikeouts. According to MASN.com’s Steve Melewski, Wright pitched two innings in a Triple-A game on Thursday.

*Suk-min Yoon, who had his flight cancelled yesterday from Canada, is on his way back to Tampa today and he will make his Orioles spring debut on Saturday.

*Catcher Matt Wieters said his right ankle feels better today and he’s still shooting to return to the field for Saturday’s home game. Wieters left Tuesday’s game early after suffering a minor sprain rounding the third base bag.

*Manager Buck Showalter said there were 16 scouts in attendance for yesterday’s game (he gets the list) as the Orioles have a lot of out of option players. One of the guys attracting the most attention is lefty pitcher Zach Britton, who has pitched three times in the last week as the club appears set to have him as a bullpen option. Showalter wouldn’t go that far, saying they will continue to get Britton stretched out, although it looks to be a formality in case of injury at this point.

*Wei-Yin Chen will start Friday game’s with Chris Tillman on Saturday and Miguel Gonzalez on Sunday. Brian Matusz and Kevin Gausman will pitch Monday’s day game in Clearwater while Ubaldo Jimenez will pitch Monday night. Bud Norris will throw Wednesday following the off day with Chen and Tillman making the two starts after that.
