Right-hander Dylan Bundy came to Camden Yards on Tuesday to discuss his offseason plan with Brady Anderson, the Orioles' vice president of baseball operations, and “to make sure we were all together on what's going on with him between now and next spring,” manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday. Bundy is currently on the disabled list at High-A Frederick with a strained lat muscle, an injury Showalter said "has just about resolved itself. " “The goal and the hope now for him is to have a normal offseason of a healthy pitcher, which he is,” Showalter said.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter had hoped to get trade acquisition Alejandro De Aza into the starting lineup Sunday, especially since he had previous success against Minnesota Twins starter Ricky Nolasco. But De Aza, who is 3-for-9 with two home runs in his career against Nolasco, was delayed when he missed his flight to Baltimore from Chicago. De Aza arrived on a later flight, and he was in the Orioles dugout by the fourth inning. “I missed the flight, and once I missed the flight, I knew I was going to be late, so I just called and let them know,” De Aza said after the game.

CHICAGO -- Being swept out of the Windy City this weekend by a Chicago Cubs team already auditioning for 2015 roster spots didn't sit well with Orioles manager Buck Showalter. By the end of their 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles had seen enough of historic Wrigley Field. Held hitless by former teammate Tsuyoshi Wada for six innings, they managed just one hit overall on the day. The Orioles (73-55) left Chicago having scored just one run -- Steve Pearce's seventh-inning solo home run, which broke up Wada's no-hit bid -- over 16 innings after play resumed Saturday following a three-hour, nine-minute rain delay.

First baseman Steve Pearce said the right abdominal strain that forced him out before the fourth inning of Friday's 9-1 win over the Minnesota Twins was more uncomfortable than painful, and he hopes he won't have a lengthy absence from the Orioles' lineup. He'll know more after an MRI scheduled for 9:30 this morning. “I'm not all that concerned,” Pearce said after the game. “It's not affecting me during anything else. I'm not in pain doing [anything], even when I swing. I just feel something there, and so I just want to get ahead of it. Hopefully, I can get back and get back pretty soon.” Pearce said he first felt discomfort Thursday and thought it might be a cramp.

Manny Machado had the partially torn ligament in his right knee repaired successfully Wednesday morning, and the third baseman remains on the timeline to return to the club for spring training next season, according to Orioles manager Buck Showalter. The operation was performed at 6 a.m. in Los Angeles by surgeon Dr. Neal ElAtrrache, who did a similar procedure last October on Machado's left knee. “Doctors said everything went well, as expected,” Showalter said. “They had what they thought was going to happen, what they thought they were going to find.” Showalter said Machado will stay in Los Angeles to do his initial recovery for about three weeks, as originally planned.

Buck Showalter not only has baseball talents, Baltimore -- he's also quite a believable prankster. The folks at Major League Baseball's Fan Cave just posted a really funny video where Showalter "punks" relief pitcher Darren O'Day. Here's the setup: O'Day thinks he's being interviewed by a Wall Street Journal reporter about his fondness for something called a "Solowheel," a unicycle-type thing that he's apparently getting paid to endorse. In the middle of demonstrating the device, Showalter storms up and asks him what the heck he thinks he's doing.

Before the masses start thinking that there's a rift between Orioles third baseman Mark Reynolds and manager Buck Showalter, let's squash that -- and tell you about what you don't see on television. What you did see Friday night in the Orioles' 13-inning 6-4 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park was Reynolds hit his first homer of the season, a booming shot over the Green Monster in the third inning that ended a personal 0-for-13 streak and a 76-at bat homerless drought going back to last season (Watch the video by clicking HERE )

Orioles manager Buck Showalter basically confirmed everything that has been written about the decision to send rookie Kevin Gausman to Triple-A last night. Gausman will be back Friday as the allowed “26th man” to pitch one end of the split doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays. He'll then be sent back down to the minors Friday and will return to the majors the following week after spending four more days in the minors (to fulfill the 10-requirement after a demotion). In other words, Gausman is not expected to miss a start, just have one pushed back from Wednesday to Friday.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter will have a lot of issues to deal with over the course of spring training - which officially begins today - but he doesn't seem the least bit worried about his starting rotation, even though he concedes that there are a few things he might have to worry about. “We're probably at 9, 10, 11 guys that we're looking at," he said Tuesday. “You've got to say 'What if?' If [Jason Hammel] has a knee issue or Miguel [Gonzalez] has some issue or [Wei-Yin] Chen or something, we'll be able to move in a lot of different directions.

Before today's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Orioles manager Buck Showalter got on top of his pregame soapbox and talked about how most barehanded plays don't need to be made. He reminisced about his days as an analyst at ESPN and about how he thought the network too often fell in love with a barehanded play that was more style than substance. But third baseman Manny Machado's ninth-inning barehanded throwout of  Desmond Jennings in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay wasn't one of those plays.

The Orioles received promising news Saturday after an MRI performed on first baseman Steve Pearce's strained right abdomen revealed no tear, indicating the injury isn't serious and won't force one of the club's hottest hitters to miss an extended amount of time. “Guys have so many little things along the way,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “The big challenge is deciding what's risky to continue and something you've just got to play through. … Steve was pretty frank with me and I thought we were running some risk to continue.

After the Orioles' 4-2 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night in a lackluster game that lasted three hours and 37 minutes and featured 319 pitches, manager Buck Showalter played an impromptu word game with reporters. “That was a grind-out win,” Showalter said. “That was such a, I wouldn't say lethargic.” Sluggish? “Nope wasn't sluggish, that's a bad word,” Showalter said. Tedious? “No.” Grueling? “That's close,” Showalter said.

After Monday's 9-1 win against the Tampa Bay Rays that snapped a three-game losing streak, several Orioles talked in postgame interviews about how they felt like fans were panicking. Center fielder Adam Jones, shortstop J.J. Hardy and left fielder Delmon Young all made a point that losing three games to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field was nothing more than a rough series in a long season. On Tuesday afternoon, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he wasn't aware that his players sensed that reaction from the fan base.

After another quality start Monday night, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman again gave credit to catcher Nick Hundley for being “right on with every pitch.” It has become a trend now. Hundley has caught Tillman's last six starts, and their numbers together have been fantastic. In 12 games with Hundley behind the plate, Tillman has a 2.67 ERA and opponents have hit just .205 against him. In seven starts with Caleb Joseph catching, Tillman's ERA is to 5.29 and opposing batters have a .287 average.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was tossed in the top of the sixth Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels after complaining about home plate umpire Angel Campos' strike zone. When Campos called a pitch that appeared to be well off the plate a strike against Nick Markakis in the sixth, Showalter yelled something and was immediately ejected. It was his first of the season and 20th of his career for Showalter. John Russell took over managing duties. Showalter has been displeased with the strike zones in each of the games during the Angels series.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club nearly has decided which players will be promoted once rosters expand Monday. The Orioles undoubtedly will recall right-hander Ryan Webb from Triple-A Norfolk, as well as Steve Clevenger as the third catcher. The team also will add at least one utility infielder, either Jemile Weeks, Steve Lombardozzi or Jimmy Paredes. All three players are on the 40-man roster. But Showalter doesn't like to call up too many players right away. Some players will go to Sarasota to work out there in case there's a need later in the month.
