Orioles pitcher Mark Guthrie is out of the hospital and could return as soon as Sunday.
The right-hander announced his own release on Twitter:
Guthrie was originally scheduled to start tonight's game against the Tigers, but was hospitalized Monday for pneumonia. Brad Bergesen will start instead.
The Orioles would net need a starter on Sunday against the Rangers, and Buck Showalter said he has Guthrie penciled in for that start -- for now.
"That's still very tentative at this point, until we have an idea what we're dealing with over the next couple of days," Showalter told reporters (via MASNSports.com's Roch Kubatko ).
The Orioles opening day starter threw eight shutout innings in the team's season-opening victory over the Rays.
