Right-handed pitcher Miguel Socolovich has been claimed off waivers by the Chicago Cubs. The Orioles had designated Socolovich for assignment Aug. 14, giving them 10 days to trade, release or ask waivers on the 26-year-old Venezuelan. He was designated to clear room on the 40-man roster for lefty J.C. Romero, who was reaquired through a trade with the Cleveland Indians. The Cubs have optioned Socolovich to Triple-A Iowa. Socolovich made his major league debut July 14 and apeared in six games for the Orioles, allowing eight earned runs on 11 hits in 10 1/3 innings of relief (for a 6.97 ERA)

CHICAGO -  Wrigley Field is known as the “Friendly Confines,” but the Orioles have had their share of challenges in two games this weekend here on Chicago's North Side. The Orioles waited through a 3-hour, 9-minute rain delay Saturday in a game that began in a heavy fog. And while this Orioles club has overcome its share of adversity - including the loss of catcher Matt Wieters and now third Manny Machado to season-ending injuries - over the course of the season, they have stumbled against a Cubs club that's out of the playoff race and motivated only by pride.

Chicago Cubs superstar Sammy Sosa is almost certain to be fined and suspended for using an illegally altered bat in a game Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, but the implications of Major League Baseball's latest cheating scandal reach far beyond whatever disciplinary action is announced over the next few days. Sosa is widely regarded as one of the greatest power hitters in baseball history. He is one of the most popular players of his generation. He has cultivated a happy-go-lucky, good-guy image that also has made him one of the most marketable personalities in sports.

CHICAGO - The Orioles' game against the Chicago Cubs this afternoon was delayed more than three hours by rain, with the Orioles trailing 4-2 at the end of the second inning. Play resumed at 5:31 local time (6:31 in Baltimore). Two batters before the game was delayed, Cubs left fielder Chris Coghlan drove in three runs with a bases-clearing triple off Bud Norris in the second inning, capping a four-run second inning that has yet to be completed.  The Orioles will make every effort to complete today's game to avoid having to play a doubleheader on a getaway day Sunday.

CHICAGO -  Former Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta said it was different pitching against his old team Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, facing so many familiar faces for the first time. Arrieta was a home-grown Oriole, once a can't-miss piece of the club's vaunted “calvary” group of young pitchers. But he struggled to find consistency in an Orioles uniform, leading to a trade that sent him to the Chicago Cubs in July 2013. But now Arrieta is flourishing with his new team, and on Friday he stifled the Orioles' bats, allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings in a 4-1 Orioles' loss to the Cubs, snapping the Orioles' four-game winning streak.

CHICAGO -- The Orioles will play against two familiar faces in their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field this weekend. Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta is scheduled to start Friday's series opener, and left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is set to start Sunday. Arrieta, who was traded to the Cubs along with reliever Pedro Strop in July 2013 for right-hander Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, has emerged as the Cubs' ace. Arrieta struggled to maintain consistency with the Orioles, but he is 6-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 starts this season.

Maryland pitcher Jake Stinnett became the highest-drafted Terps player since 2007 when the Chicago Cubs selected him with the 45th overall pick in the second round in baseball's first-year player draft Thursday. Stinnett began his career at Maryland as a third baseman, but he saw his playing time limited as a sophomore and moved to pitching full-time as a junior. He joined the team's starting rotation last season, and vaulted his way into consideration for a high draft pick with a strong senior season for the Terps . He leaped  onto the radar March 1 with a no-hitter against Massachusetts and continued his dominant senior season when he struck out a career-high 14 against North Carolina State on March 21. The right-hander, whose fastball sits in the mid-90s and is complemented by an 82-84 mph slider and a developing changeup, is 7-6 with a 2.65 ERA in 112 innings.

Well, we have made it to Memorial Day. Students are graduating, pools are open and we have our first "Orioles have interest in trading for ... " story. I love annual traditions. This report comes out of CBS Chicago - that the Orioles are interested in Chicago Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija, a free agent after the 2015 season who is 1-4 with a 1.68 ERA in 11 starts this season. The Orioles were interested in Samardzija this winter and certainly haven't lost that interest since the 29-year-old has posted the second-best ERA for a major league starter so far this season.

The dawn of the baseball season is an existential moment. For big market teams with owners willing to pay for marquee players, and general managers who build playoff-bound teams, it is a time of great anticipation. It's also a time of hope, albeit dim, for those die-hard fans of teams who are off the playoff pace by double digits year in and year out. Their cautious optimism is one that illuminates the human condition. French philosopher Albert Camus contended that life is absurd, that most of us are like the Greek tragic figure Sisyphus, who was condemned to roll a huge boulder up a mountain, only to have it roll back down as he reached the top. The essence of humanity, Camus argued, is in the moment where Sisyphus turns around to see the boulder once again at the bottom of the hill knowing he must trudge down to his toil once more, aware that this effort will again be both great and futile.

Mark Grace, Chicago Cubs: "It's unbelievable, this place is two years old and already it should be considered a shrine. The fans are right there on top of you, and it's so perfect. It's great that baseball is getting back to parks that the players and fans can really enjoy."

Jake Arrieta, who was dealt to the Chicago Cubs today along with reliever Pedro Strop for pitcher Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, was on his way to the Norfolk clubhouse to meet with some his teammates and say goodbye before packing and leaving for Triple-A Iowa, when he returned a phone call. He said he expects to throw a bullpen session at Iowa and make a couple starts there before the Cubs decide whether he'll be coming up to the big leagues. Arrieta was considered an ace of the future and was the Orioles' Opening Day starter in 2012, but he couldn't maintain consistency and was shuttled back and forth from the minors.
