The Orioles will purchase the contract of veteran infielder/outfielder Bill Hall today and place him on the club's 25- and 40-man rosters in order to fill the loss of right fielder Nick Markakis, according to a club source. Markakis, who will be placed on the DL for the first time in his major league career, is having surgery to remove a broken hamate bone in his right wrist and is slated to be out between two-to-four weeks. Hall, 32, gives the Orioles some positional flexibility, something they will need with just two healthy true outfielders  -- Adam Jones and Endy Chavez -- currently on the 25-man roster. Ryan Flaherty and Wilson Betemit have also played outfield this season.

There was a lot of media buzz in the Orioles clubhouse this afternoon that Deion Sanders, former NFL and MLB player and NFL Network analyst, is here and will take batting practice. But we're all baseball here - so the big news is that outfielder Bill Hall has been brought up from Sarasota, Fla. He was activated when the Orioles placed lefty Randy Wolf on the 60-day disabled list with a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. “I was in Sarasota [working out]

The Orioles have brought back Bill Hall -- to the delight of Baltimore Tweeters. If the jury is still out on how Hall will perform as an infielder/outfielder, there's no doubt he's a star on Twitter. The guy is online constantly -- making even a major baseball Tweeter like Adam Jones look like a Tweeting slouch. "EXCITED EXCITED EXCITED!!!!! Everything always works out!!" Hall Tweeted late last night, apparently about his Orioles comeback. And then, early this morning: "Wheels up in 10 mins!

The Orioles will be without left-hander Randy Wolf for the remainder of the season. Wolf was placed on the 60-day disabled with a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow before Wednesday's game. The 36-year-old Wolf will likely need a second Tommy John surgery to pitch again. The prognosis on Wolf, who was signed Aug. 31 to add left-handed bullpen depth, didn't appear to be promising Tuesday when manager Buck Showalter wouldn't discuss the results of an MRI performed that morning, only saying that Wolf would speak with team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens and Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed Tommy John surgery on Wolf's elbow in 2005.  “We'll see what Randy and the doctors want to do,” Showalter said before Wednesday's game.

The Orioles are purchasing the contract of utility man Bill Hall from Triple-A Norfolk, an industry source has confirmed. Hall will report to Baltimore on today and will be available for tonight's Orioles' game against the Rays at Camden Yards, the source said. Signed to a minor-league contract on April 23, Hall became a free-agent  when he didn't make the Yankees' 25-man roster this spring. In 15 games at Norfolk, Hall put up a .222/.269/.381 line with four doubles, two homers and seven RBI. Hall has had success against left-handed pitching at Norfolk, hitting .444 (8-for-18)

The Orioles have agreed to terms with veteran free-agent utility man Bill Hall, according to multiple industry sources. He will report to the club's Triple-A team in Norfolk and will replace Josh Bell, who was dealt to the Diamondbacks this weekend after he was designated for assignment. The Orioles like his glove at third base and his ability to hit for power against left-handed pitching. Hall spent most of his 10-year big-league career with Milwaukee, where he had a 35-homer, 85-RBI season in 2006, but the Orioles will be his seventh organization since the beginning of the 2009 season.
