Gathright returns (with pitching updates)

The Orioles have signed outfielder Joey Gathright toa minor league contract and invited him to spring training. He's expected to report later today.

Seems a little late, doesn't it?

The Blue Jays released Gathright over the weekend. He'll provide depth for the Orioles at Triple-A Norfolk, where Lou Montanez and Jeff Salazar also are expected to play the outfield.

Maybe we can talk him into jumping over cars in the players parking lot.

Jason Berken will start tomorrow's game against the Red Sox in Sarasota. Thursday's starter against the Rays in Port Charlotte hasn't been announced, but Kevin Millwood and Mark Hendrickson will pitch in a Triple-A game.

Alfredo Simon starts Friday against the Yankees in Tampa, while Jeremy Guthrie pitches in a minor league game. Brian Matusz starts the exhibition finale on Saturday against the Mets in Sarasota.
