Baltimore Orioles SP Jason Hammel (forearm) is scheduled to throw 45-50 pitches in a rehab start for Double-A Bowie Thursday, Aug. 29, after throwing a bullpen session Sunday, Aug. 25. The team wants him to appear in two minor league games before he is activated from the disabled list when rosters expand next month. Hammel could pitch in relief in the second rehab game and there is a possibility that he would continue to pitch out of the bullpen after he is activated.
