The Orioles sent infielder Michael Almanzar back to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday after he cleared waivers. The club selected Almanzar, 23, from the Red Sox in December's Rule 5 draft for $50,000. He had to stay on the Orioles' roster all season or be offered back to the Red Sox for half the cost of the selection. Almanzar could have been claimed by any team, but then he would have had to remain on the claiming team's 25-man roster (or disabled list) for the rest of the year or be returned to Boston.

BOSTON -- Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen once fell four outs away from throwing a perfect game while he was pitching in Japan, so it's not like Wednesday's brief flirtation with baseball history in the Orioles' 10-6 win at Fenway Park was unchartered territory. “It comes across your mind, but still a perfect game is very difficult to do,” Chen said through an interpreter after his perfect-game attempt was broken up with one out in the sixth. “I just tried to concentrate on each at-bat.

The Orioles will open the 2014 season at Camden Yards on March 31 against the Boston Red Sox, according to an industry source. There will be an off day following the Monday opener - to account for a possible rainout - and the series against Boston will continue on Wednesday and Thursday. Preliminary 2014 schedules have been out for several weeks, but the schedule has just been finalized. It has not yet been released by Major League Baseball or the clubs. The Orioles have won their past three Opening Day games, including this year's 7-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg, Fla. Next year will be the first time the Orioles open the season against Boston since 2004, when the Orioles beat the Red Sox, 7-2, at Camden Yards.

BOSTON -- One of the criticisms of the Orioles this season is that they have trouble scoring consistently when they are not hitting home runs. And that trend may catch up with them in the postseason when they'll be facing quality pitching every night. For now, though, this homer-happy bunch continues to embrace who they are: Baseball's most powerful club and, consequently, the runaway leader in the American League East. On Tuesday, the Orioles flexed their muscles again, hitting three home runs, including two by newcomer Alejandro De Aza, in a 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox in front of an announced 37,008 at Fenway Park.

While writing Monday's blog entry about Brian Roberts' thoughts on leaving the Orioles , I more than once halted my typing when referring to the New York Yankees. I wanted to call them the Orioles' chief rival, and I suppose that is true since the Orioles seemingly have always been gunning for the Bronx Bombers. But rivalry is a two-way street, and we know the Yankees' chief rival is the Boston Red Sox. Then I nearly called the Yankees the Orioles' most despised rival.

BOSTON - As seen during this week's homestand at Camden Yards, the Orioles typically do all they can to avoid doubleheaders - and the obstacles they bring - but playing one Saturday in Boston could prove beneficial to the Orioles in more ways than one. The Orioles' scheduled Fourth of July game today against the Red Sox at Fenway Park was postponed because of inclement weather nearly three hours before its scheduled start. The game will be made up as the first of a split-admission doubleheader at 1:05 p.m. Saturday.

The crop of talent available in this year's Rule 5 draft wasn't perceived to be as deep as recent seasons, but the Orioles believe they acquired two players who can contribute in the major leagues this season. After three days of rumors, the Orioles' first true acquisitions of the winter meetings were made Thursday in the Rule 5 draft when they selected corner infielder Michael Almanzar from the Boston Red Sox as the ninth and final pick in the major league portion and outfielder Julio Borbon from the Chicago Cubs in the Triple-A phase.

Pitches: He doesn't throw hard; he gets up to 86, 87 [mph] consistently. He has a slider, and I'd say his changeup is his best pitch. Weaknesses: You've normally got to beat him with hits, but his command hasn't been that good. He's been walking people, and he's got to cut down on his walks to be effective in the majors. Overall: He's been a big surprise. Right now, he's trying to figure out who he is as a pitcher. He's the type of guy that has to change speeds well because he can't rely on that fastball.

Two springs ago, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman was desperately trying to prove he could pitch in the major leagues. Last year at this time, he was attempting to show he was healthy and wasn't a fluke. And this March? Well, Tillman is now preparing to throw the first pitch of the Orioles' 2014 season at Camden Yards on March 31 against the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox. “Any time you get the chance to get that kind of opportunity it's a big deal,” Tillman said of being named the club's Opening Day starter.

Dan Duquette had been out of a major league front office since 2002, the year he was fired by the Boston Red Sox after eight seasons as the team's general manager. The Orioles had been rejected by one candidate — and possibly more — in the team's month-long search to replace Andy MacPhail as the club's top baseball executive. On Sunday, Duquette found his way back to the big leagues and the Orioles found what they hoped was the man who would lead the team out of its 14-season abyss.

BOSTON -- Stressing that it was more precautionary than alarming, the Orioles sent starting shortstop J.J. Hardy back to Baltimore on Monday night to see a team doctor about his balky back. Hardy missed the Orioles' final two games against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field over the weekend, and he will not return for the remainder of the road trip - marking at least a five-game absence. Even if he could play Wednesday in the series finale against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, the Orioles didn't like the idea of him having to take another round airplane trip so quickly.

BOSTON -- If the Orioles end up with a American League East division, AL or World Series title this year, they are going to have to wait a few extra days to display the banner next April. The club will open its 2015 season at Tampa Bay on Monday, April 6, according to the schedule released Monday. The Orioles will play three consecutive road games versus the Rays to begin the season before coming home for one day off. The home opener at Camden Yards will be Friday, April 10, at 3:05 p.m. against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Orioles made a second trade Saturday night, acquiring infielders Kelly Johnson and Michael Almanzar from the Boston Red Sox for minor league infielders Jemile Weeks and Ivan De Jesus Jr. It came on the heels of a trade with the Chicago White Sox that yielded the Orioles outfielder Alejandro De Aza for two low-level minor leaguers. Johnson, 32, has played with the New York Yankees and Red Sox this season. The left-handed hitter and 10-season veteran has hit a combined .212 with six homers in 87 games this season.

Major league owners will convene in Baltimore next week for their quarterly meeting, and they are expected to elect a new commissioner to replace Bud Selig, who will retire in January after presiding over the sport in both an interim and permanent capacity for more than 22 years. The two-day meeting will take place Wednesday and Thursday at the downtown Hyatt Regency and, according to a Major League Baseball source, is not expected to venture far afield from the choice of the new commissioner, who will be selected from a field of finalists that include MLB chief operating officer Rob Manfred, MLB executive vice president of business Tim Brosnan and Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner.

A century ago in spring training, a rawboned Orioles rookie stepped to the plate, swung from the heels and hit a fastball deep to right field. The ball landed in a rut in a cornfield, more than 400 feet from home plate. In Fayetteville, N.C., a historic marker notes the spot where George Herman Ruth, 19, hit his first professional home run in his first outing as an Oriole in 1914. He wasn't yet The Babe - teammates would pin that nickname on him within the month - but he surely was Baltimore's own. That Ruth began his career with his hometown team surprises many, sports historian Mark Millikin said.

The Orioles didn't make a blockbuster deal before Thursday's nonwaiver trade deadline like some other American League contenders, but they picked up one of the fiercest left-handed relievers in the major leagues to further fortify a stout bullpen. With about an hour to spare before the deadline expired, the Orioles acquired 29-year-old left-hander Andrew Miller from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for minor league left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez. Miller, a free agent at the end of this season, is expected to be in uniform Friday and available to pitch out of the bullpen against the Seattle Mariners.

The Orioles weren't close to acquiring Boston Red Sox right-hander Jon Lester on Wednesday - one club source said bluntly, “it's not going to happen” - but executive vice president Dan Duquette continues to work the phones as the nonwaiver trade deadline approaches at 4 p.m. today. The club continues to actively search for pitching - with a left-handed reliever that can get out hitters from both sides of the plate as one of the top priorities, according to several sources. “We have a couple of active discussions,” Duquette said before Wednesday's game.

Memorabilia Ruth bat, contract sold at auction, but ball withdrawn A nearly century-old Babe Ruth bat sold for $214,000 at a memorabilia auction Saturday night, but the first baseball whacked over the Yankee Stadium fence by the legendary slugger failed to land a new home. The auction, held at the Sports Legends Museum a day after the 100-year anniversary of Ruth's first major league game, featured 200 items related to the Baltimore-born home run king. Ruth's bat was discovered in a stash of pre-World War I Red Sox bats found in a 150-year-old home outside Boston, according to Goldin Auctions of New Jersey, which handled the sale.
