O's RHP Duchscherer sidelined Sunday (hip pain)

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles right-hander Justin Duchscherer was unable to throw a simulated game Sunday because of discomfort in his left hip, putting his place in the starting rotation in doubt.

Duchscherer signed with the Orioles as a free agent last month, but the hip injury has limited him to one appearance, two scoreless innings against Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Manager Buck Showalter had scheduled Duchscherer to pitch in a simulated game before Baltimore's scheduled game against Detroit.

Showalter said Duchscherer would be examined by team doctors.

The 33-year-old made just five starts due to a hip injury last season for Oakland after missing all of 2009 because of an elbow injury and clinical depression.
