Orioles vs. Mariners
Greetings from Camden Yards, where the O’s will take on Seattle in a three-game series that doubles as the return of Nelson Cruz. I’ll have more from Cruz later.
Lots of injury updates today, including catcher Matt Wieters who will join the team in Miami this weekend to continue his rehab. Wieters will start his rehab assignment for Double-A Bowie next Tuesday and the plan remains for him to join the O’s on June 4. He has still been catching every other day in extended spring.
Kevin Gausman threw 25 times from 60 feet today and will throw from 90 feet on Thursday. He will also go to Miami and will throw batting practice on Saturday in Miami.
Bud Norris, who has been sick and was placed on the disabled list yesterday, will throw for Triple-A Norfolk on the 22nd. The plan is for him to rejoin the rotation after that.
Tyler Wilson, who is here in place of Norris, will be a bullpen option for now although the team still thinks of him long term as a starter.
