BALTIMORE (AP) - The Orioles won't waste much time with introductions before pitchers, catchers and selected veterans take the field Wednesday for the team's first scheduled spring training workout in Sarasota, Fla.

Although executive vice president Dan Duquette did some tinkering with the roster, the Orioles haven't changed much since last October.

Baltimore lost free agent first baseman Mark Reynolds to Cleveland, traded Robert Andino to Seattle, re-signed outfielder Nate McLouth and added infielders Alex Casilla, Danny Valencia and Travis Ishikawa.

But for the first time in 15 years, the Orioles are coming off a playoff season. So there's a different attitude from a year ago.

Catcher Matt Wieters says, "We feel like we can keep that going into 2013."
