We were the world

The Orioles don’t have any further update from Jeremy Guthrie, but they tentatively expect the right-hander to return from the World Baseball Classic earlier than expected. Baltimore is hoping that Guthrie will pitch for the Orioles again as early as Monday regardless of whether Team USA wins its semifinal game on Sunday.

Manager Dave Trembley said he had to consult with Andy MacPhail, president of baseball operations, for etiquette in this situation. He also said that whenever Guthrie returns, pitching coach Rick Kranitz will have his schedule sorted out.

“He’ll get enough starts,” said Trembley of his staff ace. “He’ll get his innings up if he comes back. We’re not alone there. There’s probably a lot of other teams saying that. If he comes back, if he pitches on Monday we’ll get him caught up as best we can.”
