Not a lot to see here Friday in the Orioles' lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards. Steve Pearce is batting second and Caleb Joseph starts again. Those are the only slight changes - and they really aren't surprising at this point. Ubaldo Jimenez is on the mound tonight and he is looking for his first win at Camden Yards. Not really a good thing considering it is mid-June and he was paid $50 million over four years to be the Orioles' ace. And one last thing: Yes, the tarp was on the field here.

KANSAS CITY, MO. - There were several junctures during the 2014 regular season when catcher Caleb Joseph came up big for the Orioles, but he had to admit Sunday that he was starting to wonder if his breakthrough season would be obscured by a lengthy batting slump that had crept into the playoffs. If that was weighing on his mind when he took the field for Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, it didn't show. Joseph delivered a solid all-around performance on Saturday that included a sacrifice fly to drive in the Orioles' first run, two singles and a big, late-inning throw to cut down speedy Kansas City Royals base-stealer Jarrod Dyson at second base.

When Caleb Joseph received a throw as Chicago White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez headed toward him in the top of the eighth, the Orioles catcher said he had two things on his mind: tag Ramirez out, and don't break baseball's new home-plate collision rules. Instead, Ramirez dodged Joseph's tentative effort at a tag, scoring safely as the White Sox took a three-run lead and held on to win, 4-2, on Tuesday night at Camden Yards . Rule 7.13, implemented by Major League Baseball before the season, forbids catchers from blocking the path of the runner until he has possession of the ball.

KANSAS CITY, MO. -- The Orioles will attempt an unprecedented climb out of a 2-0 hole as the American League Championship Series shifts to Kauffman Stadium. It won't be easy because the Kansas City Royals are a team brimming with confidence. The Royals arrived home having won all six of their postseason games - pulling out two tightly-contested wins over the Orioles at Camden Yards with their share of late-inning hits and celebratory histrionics - to put the Orioles' season on the brink.

Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph picked up his first career major League hit in the bottom of the fourth inning Tuesday night when he lined a fastball from Detroit Tigers left-hander Drew Smyly on an 0-1 count to center field. “It was good, but it doesn't matter because we lost,” Joseph said after the game. “Personal achievements don't mean crap to me right now. I'm just trying to win games for the Orioles.” When he reached first base, the crowd at Camden Yards recognized the milestone with a standing ovation.

Toronto Blue Jays rookie right-hander Marcus Stroman, who threw a head-high, 92-mph fastball behind Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph in the sixth inning Monday, said Tuesday that he meant no harm to Joseph and doesn't want to be known as a head hunter. The sense was that it was a purpose pitch because Joseph stepped on Jose Reyes' hand on a play at the plate in the previous inning. “Obviously, I've been thinking about it a lot,” Stroman said. “The last thing I would ever want to do is throw at somebody's head, that's not my intention at all. I'm sorry that the ball slipped out of my hand and got away from me in the head region.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Orioles enter Thursday remaining in a virtual first-place tie with the New York Yankees atop the American League East standings. If they can win tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays, they will be four games above .500 for the first time this year. For closer Tommy Hunter, it has been an adventure. On Wednesday, he converted his 10th save in 11 opportunities but needed to escape runners at first and third with one out in a one-run game . Hunter has had four clean appearances, but he has yet to record a clean inning when he enters the game to open the ninth.

The big news Monday night was that the Orioles won again and have reduced their magic number for clinching the American League East to one over the Toronto Blue Jays. The New York Yankees have been eliminated from the division title hunt. With the Orioles' next win, the champagne corks pop and the club secures its first AL East crown since 1997. The subplot from Monday was perhaps more intriguing. In the fifth inning, veteran infielder Jose Reyes came dashing home on a single and catcher Caleb Joseph attempted to tag him out. Fairly routine play.

Frustrated by toiling in the minor leagues for six years and questioning whether he'd ever get the opportunity to make it to the majors, Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph considered retiring this offseason when he went unprotected by the O's and went unselected in December's Rule 5 Draft. But now Joseph, a 28-year-old rookie, has homered his way into franchise history, becoming the first Orioles catcher and the first rookie to hit a home run in five straight games after his two-run homer in the second-inning of Saturday's 10-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

As the bliss slowly ebbed out of Camden Yards on Saturday, the victim of another grinding effort by the unsinkable Kansas City Royals, a new reality set in for Orioles fans. Their team, so good for so many months, suddenly faces terribly long odds in this American League Championship Series. In fact, the Orioles might have played their last game in Baltimore this year. They'll have to win two of three in Kansas City just to make another date with the home crowd. As the announced sellout crowd of 46,912 filed out after a 6-4 loss, dreams of the World Series - so vibrant just 24 hours earlier - seemed far, far removed.

If the circumstances were different, Matt Wieters might have been surrounded by reporters during Thursday's media availability at Camden Yards. As his Orioles teammates faced cameras and questions, the injured catcher faced the reality of sitting out the team's first American League Championship Series in 17 years. Wieters, who hasn't played since early May and underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in June, said the 2014 playoffs are the most significant games that he has missed since he had to sit out a summer All-Star game as a 13-year-old in Goose Creek, S.C. “It's difficult in the aspect that you want to be out there with your guys, you want to be out there on the battlefield playing, but at the same time, the way the guys have played have really made it easier for me,” Wieters said.

All Orioles manager Buck Showalter had to do was watch the Kansas City Royals' comeback win over the Oakland Athletics in the American League wild-card game last week to see how dangerous his team's AL Championship Series opponent can be on the base paths. The Royals erased a four-run, sixth-inning deficit by running circles around the Athletics, stealing a postseason-record seven bases in the game on their way to a 9-8 win in 12 innings. They've been successful on 12 of 13 stolen-base attempts in the postseason heading into the ALCS.

DETROIT - The Orioles are one win away from advancing to the American League Championship Series as they prepare to face the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 of the AL Division Series on Sunday afternoon at Comerica Park. If the Orioles do sweep the Tigers, it would mark their first playoff sweep since the 1971 ALCS win, three-games-to-none, over the Oakland Athletics. Left-handed-hitting Ryan Flaherty will start at third base against Tigers left-hander David Price. Nick Hundley will start at catcher after Caleb Joseph started Game 2. Price, who the Orioles know well from his days with the Tampa Bay Rays, only faced them once this season.

When Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce was sidelined for five games last week, his absence left a big hole in the lineup. Nobody realized it more than manager Buck Showalter. "He's in a little bit different stage of his career where people are counting on him, and he's kind of become a guy that we're leaning on," Showalter said. "That's what I've tried to relay to him, that you're a valuable part of this club. " Pearce, who was released by the Orioles earlier this season - and for the first six years of his career was the definition of a replacement player - has been one of several unlikely contributors for a team that won the American League East crown and is preparing to start the postseason on Thursday at Camden Yards.

TORONTO - The starting lineup the Orioles fielded in Friday night's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre was missing 98 homers and 304 RBIs. Without Nelson Cruz, Adam Jones, Steve Pearce and J.J. Hardy, the Orioles were minus a significant amount of offensive punch. In Saturday's 4 p.m. game, expect to see Nick Markakis and Alejandro De Aza taking their day of rest. And expect Orioles manager Buck Showalter to begin using the bullpen en masse behind left-hander Wei-Yin Chen.

The Orioles have reached the All-Star break, and Caleb Joseph can't believe he's still on the team. Joseph, who made his major league debut May 7, has emerged as the regular catcher in the lineup since Matt Wieters went on the disabled list in early May. Since the Orioles traded for Nick Hundley on May 24, Joseph has played in 11 more games than the seven-year veteran. "It's pretty fast-moving," Joseph said. "Before you know it, you're in the big leagues, and then it's the All-Star break, and you're still in the big leagues.

TORONTO -- Caleb Joseph's new upright stance and growing confidence have done wonders for the Orioles rookie catcher, transforming untapped potential into unexpected power. While Joseph might have never received the opportunity to be a starter in a major league pennant race had Matt Wieters not needed season-ending elbow surgery - or had Joseph not worked tirelessly in the minors to improve behind the plate - he has given the Orioles a tremendous boost with his bat in his past four starts.

It took 48 hours, but the disciplinary sanctions the Orioles were hoping for were passed down by Major League Baseball on Wednesday. Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing at Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph's head in the sixth inning Monday. “Like I said the time, I had a lot of confidence MLB would look at it and do what needs to be done,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “I have a lot of confidence that when something like that happens, and emotions of players get in the way of good decisions, that the league office will remind them that certain things aren't tolerated.” After Stroman's 92-mph fastball sailed past Joseph's head, the rookie right-hander and both dugouts were warned by home plate umpire Ted Barrett.
