Hammel’s goal: pitch 200 innings for Orioles

In this Baltimore Sun video, Jason Hammel says his goal is to throw 200 innings for the Orioles this year. The South Kitsap grad was traded to Baltimore from Colorado last month.

Brady Sizemore’s injury in Cleveland could open the door for Aaron Cunningham, acquired by the Indians in an offseason trade with San Diego. Cunningham was among a handful of outfielders in the mix for the fourth outfielder’s job and now he has a chance to start in one of the corner spots if he has a good spring training.

Willie Bloomquist turned 34 in the offseason and the South Kitsap grad is back for his 11th big-league season, and second with the Diamondbacks. He helped the club win the NL West and get into the postseason a year ago and was rewarded with a two-year $3.8 million deal. He actually turned down more money from the Giants to stay in Arizona, where the Arizona State grad lives.
