Fri, 17 May 2013 12:54:26 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) threw a simulated game without a protective wrap on his right thumb Friday, May 17, throwing three innings. He's physically fine and on track to start against the New York Yankees Tuesday, May 21.

Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) won't make a minor league rehab appearance this weekend, and he's on track to start again Tuesday, May 21.
Wed, 15 May 2013 13:26:08 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) will pitch in a simulated game Friday, May 17. He'll throw 25 pitches in the bullpen and another 25 to 30 in the game.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez could return from the disabled list to start early next week if he gets through his simulated game without any setbacks. Steven Johnson is an option for a spot start if Gonzalez has to be pushed back any further.
Tue, 14 May 2013 14:44:19 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) played catch off flat ground Tuesday, May 14, and will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, May 15. Gonzalez threw breaking balls and fastballs Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez could return to the rotation as early as next week, depending on how his throwing session goes tomorrow.
Tue, 14 May 2013 13:00:37 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) is hoping to pitch in a minor league rehab game later this week, but he has yet to throw a bullpen session.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound good for Gonzalez returning to pitch for the Orioles this weekend, meaning it seems likely that both Steven Johnson and Jair Jurrjens will be asked to enter the team's starting rotation in the short term. Both Johnson and Jurrjens could be options for your AL-only pitching staff.
Mon, 13 May 2013 12:40:41 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) is expected to land on the disabled list with a strained oblique. The team thinks Chen could take longer than two weeks to heal from his injury.
Fantasy Tip: Jair Jurrjens and Steven Johnson could both be added to the rotation depending on the health situation with Miguel Gonzalez (thumb). Stay tuned here. If both Jurrjens and Johnson come up, Jurrjens should be your first target if you're scrounging for pitching in deep AL leagues.
Mon, 13 May 2013 12:18:10 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Jair Jurrjens could be called up from Triple-A Norfolk to join the rotation with SPs Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) and Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) injured. Jurrjens allowed five runs and seven hits while walking none and striking out six in seven innings for Norfolk Monday, May 13. Manager Buck Showalter is deciding between SPs Freddy Garcia and Jason Hammel for Wednesday, May 15, against the San Diego Padres. Chen could start Saturday, May 18, but SP Steven Johnson could be recalled if Chen needs to go on the disabled list. Jurrjens could opt out of his contract June 15.
Fantasy Tip: 2012 was an atrocious season for Jurrjens, and his injuries didn't help him at all. Baltimore may decide to opt for Jurrjens over Johnson if they need an extra starter because of Jurrjen's opt out date approaching. Jurrjens hasn't impressed in the minors, though, so don't expect much from him if he's recalled. He'll strictly be AL-only rotation fodder if you're desperate.

Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) was scheduled to throw Sunday, May 12, but was not able to because his blister has not fully healed. He will try to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 14, and could make a rehab start Thursday, May 16, or Friday, May 17.
Thu, 09 May 2013 13:37:14 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) expects to throw a bullpen session before going on a minor league rehab assignment, and he thinks he'll be ready to return from the disabled list when eligible May 19.
