Some early notes: Miguel Gonzalez, Jake Arrieta and more

The Orioles have not specified the schedule for Miguel Gonzalez yet.

Gonzalez threw a side session this morning and indicated things went fine with the blister on his right thumb.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said it is still a possibility that he could fill the Orioles’ need for Tuesday’s open rotation spot, but said the club is more focused on making sure he is 100 percent healthy.

Jake Arrieta had some tightness in his shoulder when he began a throwing session Tuesday at Triple-A Norfolk, but that subsided as he continued to throw fastballs. Showalter called it encouraging, but said Arrieta’s next start this weekend for the Tides could be skipped.

Outfielder Jason Pridie left Norfolk's game Tuesday night with a groin strain. Showalter said he did not know if it would be a disabled list situation.

Orioles lineup: McLouth 7, Machado 5, Markakis 9, Jones 8, Davis 3, Wieters 2, Hardy 6, Flaherty 4, Pearce DH. Garcia 1.

Padres lineup: Cabrera 6, Venable 9, Headley 5, Quentin DH, Alonso 3, Gyorko 4, Blanks 7, Amarista 8, Baker 2. Marquis 1.
