Baltimore Orioles Notes, Quotes 2009-04-14
--2B Brian Roberts went 3-for-5 and stole his third base of the season. Roberts, 31, may steal fewer bases in 2009, particularly if Adam Jones, Nick Markakis and Aubrey Huff continue to mash the ball behind him.

--LHP Rich Hill (elbow) will join the Orioles in Arlington, Texas, to throw a bullpen session before pitching coach Rick Kranitz, reported. Regardless of his performance, Hill will report back to the minor league facility in Sarasota, Fla. to continue building arm strength. There is no timetable for him to begin a minor league rehab assignment.

BY THE NUMBERS: 13 -- American League teams that employed Japanese-born players before the Orioles. RHP Koji Uehara enabled the Orioles to join the rest of the junior circuit, while the Reds, Marlins and Diamondbacks have never had a Japanese-born player on their big-league rosters.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "What I like is all three have the ability to do a variety of things. They can work the count -- and that's something (Adam Jones) is getting better at -- they can walk and they can use the other side of the field." -- Orioles manager Dave Trembley on his top third of the lineup: Brian Roberts, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis.
