Whispers Angels reliever Scott Downs , a former Blue Jay, spoke for a lot of people in Toronto when he trashed the ESPN story speculating that sign stealing at the Rogers Centre has helped Jose Bautista establish himself as one of baseball's best hitters. "Give credit where credit is due — and credit is due," Downs said. "He worked real hard to make himself into a great player. " … Despite fears that an unusually high number of top draft picks will fail to sign by Monday's deadline, almost all first-rounders are expected to sign.

The Orioles' hope of having four elected starters for the annual All-Star Game took a hit Monday when Major League Baseball announced that Toronto's Jose Bautista has surged ahead of Nick Markakis for the last outfield spot. The top three vote-getters in the outfield - and the top for every other fielding position and designated hitter - will start the game Tuesday, July 16 at Citi Field in New York. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones dropped from first to second among outfielders behind Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels (4,822,983 votes to Jones' 4,766,256)

A pair of former Orioles pitchers, both named Jose, are on their way back to Baltimore.The contract of righthander Jose Bautista was purchased from Miami, an independent team in the Florida State League. In another move, Jose Mesa was recalled from Triple A Rochester and will start for the Orioles tomorrow night.Bautista is expected to be available for duty tonight against the Rangers. Reliever Mark Williamson, who suffered a strained lateral oblique muscle in his left side in the second game of last night's doubleheader, will most likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Don't compare the intensity of the meetings between the Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays to the heated rivalry games between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox quite yet, but make no doubt that there was no love lost between the teams following the Orioles' 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon at the Rogers Centre. The first two games of this series between the Orioles and Blue Jays have been heated, from Orioles manager Buck Showalter's ejection Friday to the continuing war of words between Orioles reliever Darren O'Day and Toronto slugger Jose Bautista that reached its peak Saturday.

Right-hander Ben McDonald was reinstated from the Baltimore Orioles' disabled list yesterday and was placed in the bullpen until further notice.To make room on the roster, the club designated pitcher J.J. Bautista for assignment.Manager Frank Robinson said McDonald was "available if I need him" for relief duty last night, but he wasn't required in the Orioles' 5-0 victory.L Robinson remained noncommittal about McDonald's first start.There is an opening tomorrow afternoon, but the manager said McDonald will "not necessarily" fill it. The decision depends primarily on the needs from the bullpen today and the weekend weather forecast, which makes a postponement today highly possible.

Three more young players with legitimate chances to make an impact this season signed one-year contracts yesterday with the Baltimore Orioles.No terms were announced, but catcher Chris Hoiles and right-handed pitchers Jose Mesa and Jose Bautista agreed to salaries slightly more than the major-league minimum of $100,000.With the trade of catcher Mickey Tettleton to the Detroit Tigers last month, Hoiles could see significant playing time behind the plate."If he has a good spring, it'll be interesting," said general manager Roland Hemond.

MILWAUKEE -- Time appears to be running out on Jose Bautista. For the fourth straight time this young season, the righthanded reliever was ineffective yesterday, giving up Robin Yount's game-winning home run in the 4-3 loss to the Brewers.Bautista relieved lefthander Mike Flanagan in the 11th inning with righthanded hitters Paul Molitor and Yount the scheduled hitters. Molitor just missed ending the game, sending a fly ball to leftfielder Joe Orsulak against the wall. Two pitches later Yount ended the suspense with a long blast to left-centerfield.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Orioles have discovered that minor league pitcher Denny Bautista, their prized acquisition in the August trade that sent Jeff Conine to the Florida Marlins, is two years older than his listed age. Bautista, who immediately joined a select group of top pitching prospects in the organization after the deal, was born on Aug. 23, 1980. His birth date was listed as Oct. 23, 1982. The Orioles learned of the discrepancy after Bautista, who lives in the Dominican Republic, applied for his work visa in the United States.

For openers, it was a clinker. For the last opener, it was forgettable.But, fortunately, it counted only once in the standings.The Orioles' loss to the Chicago White Sox on their final Opening Day at Memorial Stadium before 50,213 wasn't as artistically disastrous as the 9-1 score might indicate, but it wasn't painless either. And it did nothing to erase the big question mark that hovers over a season of high expectations. Is the pitching good enough for the Orioles to be contenders?Jeff Ballard, giving an excellent impression of himself two years ago, pitched well for 5 2/3 innings.

When the Orioles sent Denny Bautista to the Kansas City Royals last June, they knew they were trading a promising pitcher with a great arm and a tendency for wildness. That scouting report pretty much summed up Bautista's first start against his former team since he was dealt for veteran reliever Jason Grimsley. In the Orioles' 3-1 win over the Royals last night at Camden Yards, Bautista, the hard-throwing 24-year-old from the Dominican Republic, held the Orioles down for three innings before losing control - both of the game and his pitches.

Over the first three games of this weekend's series in Toronto, the Orioles and Blue Jays have combined for 76 hits and 45 runs here at the Rogers Centre. With 21 more combined hits in this afternoon's series finale, the teams will match the record for hits in a four-game Orioles-Jays series at the Rogers Centre. The record of 97 hits was set on June 23-26, 2003. I asked Orioles manager Buck Showalter before the game why the Rogers Centre has become such a hitter-friendly park. He just put his hands over his head and said he would say if he knew.

Alfredo Simon 's plunking of Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista in the fifth inning Sunday not only sent the Orioles reliever and his manager, Buck Showalter , to an early exit, but also will cost them a few more games and some dollars. Bob Watson , vice president of on-field operations for Major League Baseball, announced Monday that Simon was issued a three-game suspension for "intentionally" throwing a pitch at Bautista and Showalter was banned for one game as a result of the pitcher's actions.

To understand the primary difference between the last-place Orioles and the fourth-place Toronto Blue Jays, you don't need to look at the win-loss record. To fully comprehend why the Blue Jays have owned the Orioles recently — they've won 12 straight at Rogers Centre, including 6-4 on Friday night — consider this simple fact. With leading home run hitter Luke Scott out of the lineup because tough left-hander Brett Cecil was pitching, the Orioles' starting nine Friday had a combined 65 homers.

Reliever Jason Berken has been so good this season, but it was bound to happen with how much the Orioles have been relying on the converted starter in close games. "Well, he is human, you know," Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel said after Berken served up a go-ahead two-run homer to Jose Bautista in the eighth inning of a 3-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays before an announced 28,518 at Camden Yards. What was less excusable to Samuel was his team's lack of execution in clutch spots, particularly in the eighth inning.

With three hits Friday night against the Anaheim Angels, Orioles third baseman Melvin Mora took the American League batting lead. It would have meant more to him, however, if the outcome had been different. "We lost," he said. So much for living and dying over his statistics. The Orioles were beaten, 10-9, after rallying from a nine-run deficit. The game lasted 10 innings. The disappointment went a lot further. "I only pay attention to the score," Mora said. "And we lost." Mora, who went 1-for-3 with a home run last night, is hitting .377 to lead Cleveland's Ron Belliard by seven points.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - One week into the season, the Orioles have had a few struggles at the big league level, but the organization was all aflutter yesterday over the performances of two pitching prospects with the Double-A Bowie Baysox. As first impressions go, John Maine and Denny Bautista couldn't have done much better. In Bowie's first two games, the two combined to pitch 10 scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and striking out 15. Maine, 22, got the win Thursday, holding the Harrisburg Senators to one hit, two walks and one unearned run in five innings.

Finding it impossible to erase the results from last year's first half, or the persistent questions that bring an annoyed tone to his voice, Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson must settle for dimming the memory. He made a last-place team fade to black last night. The Orioles chased their former pitching prospect, Denny Bautista, with a three-run fourth inning, and Ponson continued to distance himself from last season's horrid beginning in a 3-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals before 30,568 at frigid Camden Yards.
