Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman was at this week's minicamp, taking time -- despite not being part of the actual camp roster -- to watch some of the younger pitchers and check in with the team at the Ed Smith Stadium complex.
When he got the job as the Orioles' pitching coach in November, Roger McDowell reached out to every pitcher on the 40-man roster. This week, he was able to see a dozen of Baltimore's hurlers up close and personal at the organization's annual spring minicamp.
The Orioles' Major League Spring Training roster is at 47 players, with Baltimore extending invitations to the following non-roster players: outfielders Chris Dickerson, Logan Schafer and David Washington; catchers Audry Perez, Austin Wynns and Chance Sisco; and right-handed pitcher Richard Rodriguez.
Reliever Mychal Givens is at the Orioles' three-day minicamp at the club's Spring Training complex, though the right-hander will not do any official throwing as he prepares to pitch for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic in March.
Orioles prospect Branden Kline, who had Tommy John surgery in October 2015, is expected to have a normal Spring Training, and the organization is optimistic he can began the season at Double-A Bowie.
