Roster decision coming when Hardy returns
KANSAS CITY -- With shortstop J.J. Hardy beginning a rehab assignment for Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, the Orioles may not be far away from having to make a roster decision.

"[Orioles president of baseball operations] Andy [MacPhail] and the front office will sit down and I'm sure they'll have a direction that they feel presents us with the best situation short-term and long-term," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Asked if he would be comfortable with a 12-man pitching staff, Showalter said: "I'll be comfortable with whatever the organization feels is the best way for us to go."

The Orioles are currently going with 13 pitchers.
