Failing to work out a new contract or a trade, the Orioles ended their association with Geronimo Berroa yesterday by allowing the midnight deadline to pass for tendering a contract to the outfielder and making him a free agent.The Orioles made offers to reliever Armando Benitez and outfielders Jeffrey Hammonds and Tony Tarasco. They'll go through arbitration if unable to reach contract agreements by the end of next month.Berroa was acquired from the Oakland Athletics on June 27 for minor-league pitchers Jimmy Haynes and Mark Seaver, with expectations that the free swinger would inject some life into a quiet offense.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Manager Davey Johnson did not go with his regular lineup against left-hander Darren Oliver last night and said he may shake up the batting order even more tonight in the second game of the three-game series against the Texas Rangers.Jeff Reboulet started ahead of Roberto Alomar at second base, and catchers Chris Hoiles and Lenny Webster were both in the predominantly right-handed lineup last night. Tonight, Alomar probably will lead off and Brady Anderson likely will drop from the top of the order to the cleanup spot in an attempt to generate a more consistent attack.

In June, the Orioles appeared ready to trade for David Segui but instead acquired Geronimo Berroa. Nearly six months later, they appeared ready to keep Berroa but instead signed Joe Carter after again pursuing Segui.Are we having fun yet?Not if the Orioles remain unsettled at DH.The position is their Bermuda Triangle, in part because Paul Molitor has spurned them twice in the past three years for his hometown Minnesota Twins.When it happened again last Sunday, the Orioles retained Harold Baines as their left-handed DH by offering him salary arbitration.

NEW YORK -- Geronimo Berroa said he was "the first one to be surprised" when manager Davey Johnson removed him for a pinch hitter with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning of Thursday's game against the New York Yankees.With right-hander Jeff Nelson on the mound and the Orioles leading, 4-2, Johnson began a series of moves by calling back Berroa and sending in Roberto Alomar, who had been unavailable because of a strained groin muscle. When Yankees manager Joe Torre countered with left-hander Graeme Lloyd, Johnson batted Jerome Walton for Alomar.

The Orioles' fears were confirmed yesterday, causing them to place second baseman Roberto Alomar on the 15-day disabled list because of a pulled right groin he suffered in Tuesday night's game against the Texas Rangers.The club used his roster spot to add designated hitter Harold Baines, whom they acquired in return for a player to be named. Alomar arrived at the clubhouse yesterday afternoon unable to walk without discomfort. Stiffness in the area caused him to sleep on a couch rather than a bed the night before as any movement bothered him."

The Orioles have at least temporarily set aside their concern for a player's physical soundness and are again pushing for a trade involving Oakland Athletics right fielder/designated hitter Geronimo Berroa.Club sources indicate a deal would send three minor-league pitchers to the A's for Berroa and a second player.Jimmy Haynes is at the center of a deal, but the other two pitchers appears to be a sticking point. The Orioles are willing to part with right-handers Chris Fussell and Mark Seaver, but the A's are more interested in Triple-A pitcher Nerio Rodriguez and Double-A pitcher Julio Moreno.

Manager Davey Johnson said he expected Geronimo Berroa to arrive in Baltimore late last night, and the slugger could be in the lineup today against the Toronto Blue Jays, serving as the designated hitter and batting either third or fourth.Johnson wanted to check on Berroa, who was acquired in a trade with the Oakland Athletics Friday for minor-league pitcher Jimmy Haynes and a player to be named, before guaranteeing his place in the lineup. Berroa had an MRI done on his right shoulder Thursday, but played that night.

TORONTO -- Proclaiming that real progress had been made over the weekend, Orioles general manager Pat Gillick said yesterday that a deal that would bolster the Orioles' depleted lineup with a significant hitter may be only days away.Gillick stopped short of naming a favorite, but he confirmed that San Diego Padres left fielder Rickey Henderson is "in the mix" along with Oakland Athletics hard-handed right fielder Geronimo Berroa and Montreal Expos first baseman David Segui.Philadelphia Phillies right fielder Darren Daulton remains a candidate, but because of financial complications he appears to be a second-tier possibility.

ATLANTA -- After spending most of the past week looking at alternatives, the Orioles have stepped up their search for a replacement for outfielder Eric Davis and appear to be leaning more toward a designated hitter.General manager Pat Gillick said before yesterday's game against Atlanta that he has approached a number of teams about a trade possibility but that many teams are reluctant to discuss major deals while still seeing themselves as playoff contenders.The Oakland Athletics and Philadelphia Phillies have no such thoughts, however, and Gillick and assistant GM Kevin Malone have focused attention on A's right fielder Geronimo Berroa and Phillies outfielder Darren Daulton.

PHOENIX -- Like every other organization, the Orioles will lose at least two players in today's expansion draft that serves as an incubator for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Devil Rays.At the same time, general manager Pat Gillick may be prepared to trade for Florida Marlins left-hander Al Leiter amid an anticipated flurry of deals after the draft.A deal likely would hinge on either expansion team drafting Leiter, then dealing him to the Orioles for a package of players. While Gillick acknowledges talks involving Leiter, he downplayed the possibility of anything imminent.

Orioles manager Davey Johnson began the American League Championship Series last night by again tweaking his lineup, though not as radically as he had in games 1 and 4 of last week's Division Series against Seattle.Johnson said he agonized over his lineup for Game 1, trying to fit "three great hitters" into two spots. He settled for Geronimo Berroa in right field and Harold Baines as designated hitter against Cleveland Indians right-hander Chad Ogea, putting Eric Davis on the bench.Johnson cited Davis' fatigue from incessant interview requests and heavier playing time while still undergoing after-care and chemotherapy for colon cancer.

Mike Mussina started the game in shadows, cloaked as much by the overwhelming presence of the Seattle Mariners' Randy Johnson as by the sun setting below the roof of Camden Yards.He finished in the brilliant afterglow of Baltimore's most powerful baseball moment since Cal Ripken set his iron man standard two Septembers ago. Considered an iffy postseason pitcher a week ago, Mussina and a flawless bullpen grabbed onto home runs by Jeff Reboulet and Geronimo Berroa along with Ripken's RBI single, cradled them, and walked away with a two-hit, 3-1 win to clinch the American League Division Series by the same 3-1 margin.

On the field: Right fielder Eric Davis hit a bases-empty home run off Jeff D'Amico in the third inning, his first since May 6 off California Angels left-hander Chuck Finley. Davis, who finished 4-for-5, had struck out six times in eight at-bats entering the game. His performance came barely 24 hours after he received his latest round of chemotherapy at a Milwaukee hospital.In the dugout: Johnson started right-handed-hitting designated hitter Geronimo Berroa against right-hander D'Amico instead of Harold Baines.

CLEVELAND -- With a sliver of their schedule remaining, the Orioles still have riddles to answer: How to solve an almost 39-year-old Orel Hershiser and what to do about their madcap right fielder, Geronimo Berroa.The unanswered questions left them with a frustrating 2-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians last night at sold-out Jacobs Field. Compounding their uneasiness was the removal of starting pitcher Scott Kamieniecki after six innings with cramping in his right biceps. His pain was compounded by what happened behind him in the sixth inning.

TORONTO -- The Orioles continue to scour both leagues for hitting help, apparently with the goal of securing assistance by the end of next week. Their interest in Oakland Athletics outfielder/DH Geronimo Berroa took a serious hit Thursday night when Berroa injured his right shoulder making a throw.The A's have not made a decision whether to put Berroa on the disabled list, but the problem is significant enough that the Orioles have begun looking elsewhere.General manager Pat Gillick has dispatched a scout to follow the San Diego Padres, who are looking to move one of their two left fielders, Rickey Henderson or Greg Vaughn.
