Red Sox reliever Matt Albers ticked off Orioles fans and his former teammates on July 8 -- you know, Friday night fight night -- with a few furious fist-pumps while striking out four Orioles in two innings of garbage time. Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reported that several Orioles told him afterward that they were more irritated with Albers for his on-mound theatrics and for allegedly hurling an expletive at the Baltimore dugout than they were at Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz for charging after Orioles closer Kevin Gregg . Before Boston's 15-10 win on Monday night, Albers told WEEI's Alex Speier that he understood their anger . “I think maybe after the fact, I think I got maybe a little carried away.

While it has been popular to talk about the way the Orioles have been playing for their jobs next year since Buck Showalter took over as manager, Matt Albers has been in that situation since the beginning of the season. It was speculated on numerous occasions earlier in the year that Albers could be the odd man out in a pending roster move. As the season has gone on, that talk has quieted and even been replaced by questions about where the much-maligned reliever could fit into next year's bullpen.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -Add Matt Albers to the list of pitchers who have dropped out of the competition for the three open spots in the Orioles' rotation. This time, though, it's by design. If healthy, the right-hander will start the season in the bullpen. "That's what he had success in last year," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said. "He was probably our most valuable guy, and we didn't realize that until after we lost him, how valuable he was." Albers, who is pitching with torn cartilage in his right shoulder, said his arm feels good, but his durability remains a concern heading into the season.

Orioles reliever Matt Albers has decided to forgo surgery on his right shoulder and attempt a rehabilitation program that would allow him to pitch this season with a torn labrum. Albers made the decision after meeting yesterday with renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Andrews provided a second opinion for Albers, who stated his desire before Tuesday's game at Camden Yards to avoid surgery. Orioles team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens earlier made the same recommendation as Andrews.

— As Koji Uehara walked through the visiting clubhouse Monday morning, several of his teammates serenaded him with chants of "Koji, Koji, Koji," copying the fans at Camden Yards Sunday while the reliever was converting a one-run save opportunity against the Tampa Bay Rays. Of course, there was no such chant Monday in the Orioles' 4-3 victory over the New York Yankees, but Uehara did silence 46,103 at Yankee Stadium by striking out two of the three hitters that he faced in a perfect ninth inning.

The Orioles will be getting pitchers Brad Bergesen and Koji Uehara back by Saturday, meaning two players currently on the major league roster -- likely a hitter and a pitcher -- will be sent packing soon. The likely candidates to be expunged include Garrett Atkins, the club's Opening Day first baseman who signed a one-year contract worth $4.5 million in the offseason. Atkins has struggled offensively, with just one homer and nine RBIs, and has rarely played this month. Relievers Matt Albers and Frank Mata also are the roster bubble, along with seldom used fourth outfielder Lou Montanez.

With two potential roster moves pending within the next week, reliever Matt Albers' future with the Orioles could be in jeopardy, something the right-hander said he is not thinking about. "I have got to go out there and pitch and take care of my business," said Albers, who is 0-3 with a 9.35 ERA in 10 games. "That part of the game is going to happen. There's nothing really I can do except just pitch and try to do my best." The Orioles will have to make a roster move Saturday, when they recall Brad Bergesen from Triple-A Norfolk to start against the Boston Red Sox. They also will need to remove another player from the big league roster when reliever Koji Uehara (strained left hamstring)

A standout pitching performance from the youngest gun on staff, a pinch-hit, game-tying shot in the late innings and two homers from a reserve infielder are usually enough to bring comfort to a scuffling team and a disgruntled fan base. But not in this early season, not for an Orioles team that simply can't churn out a victory, even when they seemingly play well. Tuesday's 8-6 loss in 10 innings to the Tampa Bay Rays was the Orioles' fifth straight defeat -- all at home, and most in heartbreaking style.

Orioles manager Dave Trembley likes to talk about the dogfight for roster spots in the bullpen, but it wasn't apparent after Jeremy Guthrie left the mound in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Florida Marlins at Roger Dean Stadium. Cla Meredith and Matt Albers , two of the middle-relief candidates who have been the most effective during the exhibition season, struggled in one-inning appearances. Meredith had not allowed a run in his first seven appearances and had surrendered just two hits in six innings, but he gave up two runs on two hits and a hit batsman in the sixth inning.

Cla Meredith is taking the decision out of manager Dave Trembley's hands. Needing a good spring to make the Opening Day roster, the Orioles' right-handed reliever has been flawless. He pitched another scoreless inning in the Orioles' 4-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays at Ed Smith Stadium on Wednesday, and he has not allowed a base runner in his six outings spanning five innings. "He's gotten both left- and right-handed hitters out," Trembley said. "For the most part, he's kept his pitches down, and by down, I mean the count, not the location.

Long before Saturday's midnight nontender deadline, the Orioles agreed to pre-arbitration deals with relievers Matt Albers and Cla Meredith on their 2010 contracts but did not offer a contract to Brian Bass, who now becomes a free agent. Bass, a 28-year-old right-hander, went 5-3 with a 4.90 ERA in 48 appearances in 2009 while serving as a long man out of the bullpen. The Orioles, who now have two open spots on their 40-man roster, have invited Bass back on a minor league deal.
