Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis walked into the visting clubhouse of Tropicana Field on Friday afternoon with his right arm in a sling after succesful morning surgery to remove a broken bone from his wrist. Markakis tried to force a smile as he made his way to his locker. “So how was your off day?” shortstop J.J. Hardy joked from the next locker over. “Are you off the anesthesia enough to talk to people?” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said as he walked by moments later as Markakis spoke with reporters.

It takes a lot to force Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis from a game. He's played the past few days with a deep purple bruise on his left bicep from taking a pitch there last week in Toronto. When he was recovering from surgery on his right wrist, manager Buck Showalter's toughest task was making sure Markakis didn't sneak off and start swinging a bat prematurely before the stiches from his surgery healed. So when Markakis walked off the field just moments after taking a 92-mph fastball to his left hand, the Orioles dugout knew something was wrong.

Ravens cornerback Gary Baxter underwent abdominal hernia surgery yesterday at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Baxter's rehabilitation is expected to last four to eight weeks, which should make him available for the Ravens' first minicamp May 7-9. It was an injury Baxter played through during the final part of the season. Baxter finished third on the team with 106 tackles and intercepted three passes. The injury is the first major one for Baxter since his rookie year of 2001 when a knee problem forced him out of the better part of training camp and the first half of the season.

That chronic groin pain sometimes felt by athletes may be called a sports hernia, but it's not really a hernia at all, according to Dr. Katherine G. Lamond, assistant professor of surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and a surgeon at the University of Maryland Medical Center. She said they are different from what's normally thought of as a hernia and sometimes tough to diagnose. But once doctors determine that this is the cause, there is effective treatment. What is the difference between a sports hernia and other types of hernias?

J.B., the 18-year-old lioness at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, was euthanized after veterinarians diagnosed her with liver disease, zoo officials announced yesterday. The lion's keepers first noticed J.B. was ill March 17 when her appetite decreased and she appeared lethargic, said Rebecca Gullott, the zoo's mammal collection and conservation manager. "Our animal keepers know their individual animals extremely well and are able to detect anything different about them," Gullott said. "She was a little bit lethargic and just looked not herself."
