SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Four months and a day after their first postseason appearance in 14 years, the Baltimore Orioles got a head start on preparing to try for another run into October.

Pitchers and catchers reported Tuesday and position players were due three days later, but almost everyone was at camp Wednesday ready to go.

Star center fielder Adam Jones, who will leave the team early next month to play for the U.S. team in the World Baseball Classic, took batting practice in the morning and told manager Buck Showalter he'd like to play in more exhibition games than usual before leaving the team early next month for the tournament.

The Orioles don't begin their season for nearly seven weeks, but Showalter said that it's not a bad thing to have almost all of his players here.
