Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez may get start in season-opening series
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

When the Orioles open the season with a three-game series in Tampa Bay, manager Buck Showalter said Miguel Gonzalez will likely start one of the games, reports MLB.com.

“We’re leaning that way. It kind of slots him out the rest of the month where he should be," Showalter said. "Like I say, we’ve got a rare opportunity with playing in our division for as much as we do and the track record our starters have there in different venues against different teams and kind of take advantage of that.”

For his career, Gonzalez is 3-1 with a 2.64 ERA in five starts at Tropicana Field.

Showalter said earlier this spring that Wei-Yin Chen would probably pitch among those first three games as well as Chris Tillman, who's been widely speculated as the club’s Opening Day starter.

Wei-Yin Chen has another strong spring start for Orioles
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Orioles starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen made his fourth start of the spring Wednesday against the Blue Jays and needed 62 pitches to throw five innings, allowing four hits, one earned run, one strikeout and no walks.

Chen said he could have thrown more innings if needed.

"Of course I can, but five innings is what we had [as a goal] before the game and I got there," Chen said. "And we're still in spring training and there's a lot more things I need to work on, so it's not about how many innings as pitches."

For the spring, Chen has posted a 2.03 ERA in 13 1/3 innings, striking out six and walking one.

Chen continues to use a new grip this season on his changeup.

"I would say it is much better, but still sometimes I think about the grips or how I'm going to throw the pitches," Chen said. "I am still going to keep tinkering in the bullpen, but hopefully by the start if the season I don't have to think about it and I can just throw it naturally."

Chen said he isn't working faster to stay in step with Major League Baseball's rules about speeding up the games.

"I try not to think about it, because the most important thing for a player is my performance and I try to do my best out there without thinking about this extra stuff," he said. "Of course, if I can get the game going faster, I'll be happy to, but I have to keep my performance [strong]."

Chen said his goals for the rest of sping training is to "keep working some on my breaking ball and changeup. It's gotten a lot better, but I need to make it more accurate so in the season I can use it more easily."

Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen working on command with changeup
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen threw 3 1/3 innings Sunday, allowing two runs. However, Chen more importantly worked on his command with the changeup.

"He's made some real strides with that," manager Buck Showalter said. "You can tell in his lack of reluctance to throw it. I'm not sure if it's the new grip or it's just added in some. He wasn't throwing it this much last year. I think he knows it might help take him to another level."

Chen, who also allowed seven hits with no walks, thought he controlled his pitches better Sunday than his previous outing.

"I think I have better command now even though I sometimes leave it up in the zone," he said through an interpreter. "Still, I think the command is better than the last outing, and even if I sometimes miss a location, the hitters are having some trouble with the timing of it, so I think it's getting better."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
