Uehara struggling with conditions

Uehara struggling with conditions

|
ARLINGTON -- Reliever Koji Uehara had to come out after 30 pitches in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Texas after struggling with the heat and humid conditions.

As manager Dave Trembley said Thursday, "It's not even summertime yet." It was 85 degrees with high humidity. And while starter Jeremy Guthrie's six-inning stint might have been cut short by fatigue -- Guthrie said after the game it wasn't a factor -- the Orioles are troubled by Uehara's endurance.

Trembley mentioned after Wednesday's game that Uehara might need two days off to recover. Trembley backed off of that a little Thursday, but not all the way.

"We have to build him up into baseball pitching shape," Trembley said. "But I am concerned about it. Apparently there was an issue with it [Wednesday] night."
