O's Farm Director Doc Rogers on Adam Loewen's struggles this spring.

"As a young player in major league camp, he's trying to do more than he might be capable of at this point," Orioles farm director Doc Rodgers said. "He might be giving them too much respect. But when you consider he moved from short-season ball last year to big league camp this year, there's going to be a learning process."

Lowen should be contending for a rotation spot in two years if he develops as expected.
