Orioles first baseman Chris Davis will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Saturday at Double-A Bowie. He will start at first base and bat second. The plan is for Davis to get at least four at bats and play at least seven innings. “I don't want him hitting leadoff and I don't want him to have the problem of getting enough at bats before he may or may not come out of the game,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “The plan is for him to potentially DH on Sunday, the 2 o'clock game, but he's going to come back here after the game tomorrow, and he and I are going to sit down and talk.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis had been taking batting practice indoors for the past two days, but until Friday's game against the Houston Astros, he couldn't get a true feel for how well he has recovered from a strained left oblique muscle. During his first outdoor batting practice session, Davis littered the Camden Yards seats with home run balls, hitting 15 balls out in his final four rounds. "I felt great,” Davis said. “I felt really good the last three days. That's when we started doing a lot of stuff.

When Ken Ludwig's golf farce, "The Fox on the Fairway" premiered at Signature Theatre in Arlington, Va., in 2010, the prolific playwright described his work as "a tribute to the classic English farces of the 1930s and 1940s. " In Prince George's Little Theatre's current production at Bowie Playhouse, Ludwig's goal is realized, exposing insanity on the golf course and in the clubhouse - at least by enthusiasts with their outrageous costumes. The show finds the heads of two rival golf clubs - Dickie Bell of the Crouching Squirrel and Henry Bingham of the Quail Valley Club -- plotting strategies to defeat the other in an imminent tournament.

Buck Britton has been in this position before. The 28-year-old utility infielder has shuttled between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk plenty of times. But this time, Britton has a little shine to him. Zack Britton's older brother hit .344/.382/.492 in 28 games for the Baysox before he earned a promotion to Norfolk on Sunday. Britton hasn't had a hit in two games for the Tides, but don't expect that to last long. He's a career .289/.338/.404 hitter in the minors. And while he's never hit for much power, it's Britton's versatility that gets him noticed.

MINNEAPOLIS - The Orioles opened a 40-man roster spot Sunday when they outrighted infielder David Adams to Double-A Bowie. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the move wasn't related to another pending transaction, but he said the flexibility it created would help the club. “I know the reason in which it was done at that time,” Showalter said. “But I'm not going to broadcast it. It has nothing to do with a pending move that I'm aware of. But it does open up some possibilities … if you have somebody not on the roster that you want to bring up. It's always good to have that maneuverability, that's some of it. But why that timing?

A cast of minor league veterans and intriguing prospects are hitting the cover off the ball for Double-A Bowie, including first base prospect Christian Walker and outfielder Dariel Alvarez. Walker, despite not being on the 40-man roster and being behind Norfolk first baseman Brett Wallace on the proverbial depth chart, is being mentioned in some circles as an internal candidate to replace an injured Chris Davis in the short term. That speculation is likely premature, given his relative inexperience and the Orioles' 40-man situation.
