Orioles minor leaguer Travis Adair, brought up to travel with the team on its Grapefruit League opener against the Rays, is OK after he was hit by a batted ball in the side head during batting practice. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Adair, the son of Orioles pitching coach Rick Adair, was behind a batting practice screen near second base when he was hit on back left side of his head. "He got a little cut there too," Showalter said. He initially received treatment in the visiting clubhouse of Charlotte Sports Park, but was taken to a local hospital to have a precautionary CT scan.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- The cracking sound of a mid-90s fastball hitting the head of Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold on Friday set off a collective gasp throughout the seating bowl of Charlotte Sports Park. The Orioles had their first serious injury scare of spring training as Reimold took a pitch off the left side of his jaw in the first inning of the Orioles' 3-3, 10-inning tie with the Tampa Bay Rays. The 2-1 delivery from Rays right-hander Alex Cobb sent Reimold to the ground holding the side of his face.

In the Orioles' spring pitching competition, right-hander Alfredo Simon is an arm without a role. While most of the 29 pitchers in Orioles camp have a predetermined role they are competing for, Simon doesn't. He came up as a starter and made 16 starts for the Orioles last season. But before 2011, he was almost exclusively a reliever as a major leaguer. In the Orioles' pitcher version of "Survivor," manager Buck Showalter gave Simon the first opportunity to audition in Monday afternoon's Grapefruit League opener against the Rays.

The reality is that right-hander Ryan Drese is an extreme long shot to make the Orioles' Opening Day roster, but after not appearing in a big league game since 2006, the veteran won't give up hope until a final decision is made. "I'm sure hoping my name is called, whether it's starting or relieving," said Drese after allowing two earned runs and five hits in the Orioles' 7-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays today before 5,726 at Charlotte Sports Park. "Nobody's heard anything yet. It's going to come down to the last few days.

The Orioles are opening up their Grapefruit League schedule this afternoon against the Rays at the Charlotte Sports Park. This is one half of a day-night, split-squad double header. The O's will face the Pirates at home tonight. As expected, not many of the starters made the trip to Port Charlotte. You could realistically make the case that only one "starter" is here: Wilson Betemit. Betemit will start at first base, a sign that Orioles manager Buck Showalter will gets some looks at the free-agent acquisition around the diamond.

Orioles starter Brad Bergesen got pretty much what he was looking for with a decent five-inning outing against a solid Tampa Bay Rays lineup. Ryan Drese, a veteran competing for the Orioles' fifth starter spot, did not. Drese allowed six earned runs in 1 2/3 innings as the Orioles blew a five-run seventh-inning lead before reclaiming the advantage in the ninth inning on their way to a 9-8 win in front of an announced 6,061 at sun-drenched Charlotte...

The importance of good base running is a major point of emphasis for the Tampa Bay Rays in spring training and Manny Ramirez is paying attention. The slugger had two hits, drove in a run and played left field for the first time with his new team during a 6-5 loss to a Pittsburgh Pirates split squad on Monday. Ramirez, signed this month to a $2 million, one-year contract, also made a good impression by scoring from third base on a second-inning wild pitch, sliding into the plate to the delight of the crowd at Charlotte Sports Park.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles have released left-handed reliever Chris Jones, who was designated for assignment on Monday to make roster space for Nelson Cruz. Jones, who was acquired from the Atlanta Braves in April in exchange for Luis Ayala, was added to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from being taken in the Rule 5 draft. Jones was 4-4 with a 2.67 ERA in 70 2/3 innings last season at Triple-A Norfolk and held left-handed hitters to a .196 ERA. Here are the starting lineups for today's Grapefruit League opener against the Tampa Bay Rays at Charlotte Sports Park.

Shortstop Yunel Escobar and second baseman Ryan Roberts hit back-to-back home runs off Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz in the fourth inning on Saturday as the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Orioles, 4-1, at Charlotte Sports Park. Those were the only hits Matusz surrendered over two innings after coming on in relief of starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen, who needed just 23 pitches to complete two scoreless innings in his 2013 Grapefruit League debut. "[For my] spring debut this year, I feel pretty satisfied for today," Chen said through interpreter Tim Lin. The Orioles scored their only run of the game in the sixth inning when third baseman Manny Machado tripled off Rays pitcher Josh Lueke and outfielder Jason Pridie drove him home with a sharp single up the middle.

The Orioles sent several of their top young pitching prospects to the mound Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays and came away with a 4-3 victory at Charlotte Sports Park. It wasn't the prettiest display of pitching prowess, but Jake Arrieta, Steve Johnson, Pedro Beato and Eddie Gamboa kept the Orioles in the game against a very representative Rays lineup in spite of some difficult innings. Arrieta had a rocky first, giving up three hits, including a two-run homer by Evan Longoria, but settled down to prevent any further scoring through the fourth inning.
