SARASOTA, Fla. –- The Orioles are hoping Yovani Gallardo could be on the field for them on Tuesday. Gallardo was scheduled to take his physical in the afternoon, and if everything goes well, he could conceivably be added to the roster shortly. A player will have to be subtracted from the 40-man to accommodate him.
Position players are scheduled to report on Tuesday, and manager Buck Showalter expects no late arrivals. The first full squad workout is Wednesday.
Monday was a short day for the Orioles as the team participated in a charity golf tournament to benefit the Miracle League of Manasota County. The team was off the field by 11 a.m.
Fifteen pitchers threw on Monday morning. Todd Redmond, who missed the first three days of camp because of the birth of his first son, threw in the bullpen.
Dylan Bundy and Hunter Harvey both threw their second bullpens on the fourth day of workouts. Manager Buck Showalter said he’s not to the point where he forgets about their physical woes while watching them.
“No, I just don’t talk about it. I don’t tell them. We know the history on all these guys,” Showalter said.
“You look at all of that. You don’t get bogged down on it. Dylan was pretty good today. That was encouraging. You can tell by his face. Both of these guys are really looking forward to being just another guy instead of a guy on rehab. Just about everybody here has had similar issues in their pitching career. Some of it’s a distant memory. Some of it is not.”
NOTE: The Orioles will play intrasquad games on Saturday and Sunday at Ed Smith Stadium. Saturday’s game will be five innings and begin at 11 a.m. Sunday’s will be seven innings and starts at 1:05 p.m. Neither will be open to the public.
