Sunday Bird Droppings

March 10, 2012; Clearwater, FL, USA; Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters (32) talks with starting pitcher Brian Matusz (17) on the mound in the fourth innning against the Philadelphia Phillies at Bright House Networks Field.

School of Roch: Matusz goes four scoreless, Davis homers
"Brian Matusz turned in an impressive outing today against the Phillies, blanking them on three hits over four innings and striking out four batters - including Jim Thome and Hunter Pence to end the fourth."

School of Roch: Hearing from Matusz, Davis and Wieters
"It's apparent that Matusz is in better physical condition this spring. "Absolutely," he said. "Getting stronger physically in the weight room as well with the long toss and refining the mechanics. I feel I was powerful out there today, powerful and explosive."

School of Roch: Showalter speaks after 1-0 victory (and contract note)
"[Brian Matusz] threw well today," manager Buck Showalter said. "I'd say if the highlight of camp was (Nolan) Reimold's jaw not being broken, that might have been second today. You see his tempo, his arm, really throwing the ball downhill. That was good."

School of Roch: Reimold, Paulino, the B game and more
"Showalter contemplated putting Reimold in the lineup for Sunday's B game, but decided against it. He won't take Reimold to Dunedin on Monday. Life is a little crazy for Reimold right now. His wife is due with their second child next week."
