Outfielder Chris Dickerson, who was designated for assignment last Friday when Henry Urrutia and Danny Valencia joined the Orioles, has been placed on outright waivers, according to an industry source. The Orioles had been trying to deal Dickerson, but apparently could not find a deal involving the 31-year-old. If he is not claimed on waivers - teams only have to pay a $20,000 claiming fee, while picking up his remaining salary and placing him on the 25-man roster - then he will be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

Back in October, we asked how many of the Orioles' nine free agents were likely to return in 2014. Now, with less than five weeks until spring training, it could end up that none of them return to Baltimore. The Orioles wanted to keep right-hander Scott Feldman, as well as outfielder Nate McLouth and second baseman Brian Roberts, but all three signed deals elsewhere. Interestingly, of the team's nine free agents, the one who seemed most likely out the door - right-handed reliever Francisco Rodriguez - is the most likely to return at this point.

As he turned and watched the ball fly out toward right-center field, Chris Dickerson had no doubt he'd just hit his first career walk-off home run. It was a three-run blast to give the Orioles a 7-5 victory over the Detroit Tigers before an announced sellout crowd of 46,249 and complete a comeback against Tigers closer Jose Valverde on Friday night. “This team continues to be resilient, does it week after week,” Dickerson said. “It's incredible, the at-bats, the effort that everyone puts out every night.

Orioles outfielder Chris Dickerson (right hamstring) and second baseman Alexi Casilla (right thumb/head) will likely miss the remaining four games of the season. An MRI performed on Dickerson's hamstring revealed a small tear, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He felt decent in Tampa, I felt like he could play defense for a few innings, but not hit and run,” he said. “I haven't had him for the last two or three days. ... I think he's probably done.” Casilla, who came out of Monday's game after hitting his head on Nick Markakis ' thigh while attempting a diving catch, injured his thumb on the same play.

There have been plenty of interesting call-up stories over the years - remember when former outfielder Lou Montanez initially missed his big phone call because he was in a salsa dance class and didn't have his phone with him - but Chris Dickerson's ranks up there for franticness. The outfielder, who had spent a chunk of the season with the Orioles, was designated for assignment in July and ended up back at Triple-A Norfolk, where he finished the season. On Tuesday, he had come back to Baltimore to clean out his apartment and wait for a potential call back to the Orioles.

Orioles outfielder Chris Dickerson had a cortisone shot in his left shoulder before Thursday's game, something he said should get him, “over that hump and kind of get to the All-Star break.” Dickerson was scratched from Wednesday's start after experiencing pain in the shoulder while taking batting practice. He said he felt better Thursday when taking dry swings, but did not attempt to hit off a tee or throw. That, he said, should happen Friday. “I'll throw [Friday] and then hit a little bit. Come in early and test it out,” Dickerson said.

BOSTON - Outfielder Chris Dickerson, who was abruptly removed in the first inning of Tuesday's game at Triple-A Norfolk, will join the Orioles Wednesday in Boston. A corresponding 25-man roster move to add Dickerson is uncertain. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday he was optimistic outfielder Nolan Reimold, who left Sunday's game with a right hamstring injury, could avoid a disabled list stint with Tuesday's off day and a right-hander pitcher slated to pitch for Boston on Wednesday - which would give the right-handed hitting Reimold two extra days off. Since Dickerson is under a minor league contract, the Orioles would need to add him to the 40-man roster.

Outfielder Chris Dickerson will remain in the Orioles organization as the club announced it has outrighted him to Triple-A Norfolk. Dickerson cleared waivers Sunday afternoon and could have refused the assignment to Norfolk. But the Orioles wanted to keep Dickerson -- who plays all three outfield positions -- for his versatility. And Dickerson knows that he can be back in the majors quickly, considering the Orioles make so many roster moves. The Orioles had previously been trying to deal Dickerson, who was designated for assignment July 19. Dickerson recorded a .245/.274/.412 line with four homers and 13 RBIs in 46 games, primarily as a left-handed designated hitter.

Outfielder Chris Dickerson cleared waivers Sunday and can now be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk by the Orioles, according to an industry source. Dickerson, who was placed on outright waivers Friday, can choose to not accept the minor league assignment and can elect free agency, which would allow him to sign with any club. The Orioles, however, are now attempting to keep Dickerson in the organization, according to a source. Because he can play all three outfield positions, he adds valuable defensive versatility in the minors and would be a call away from getting back to the majors.

The Orioles officially selected the contract of Chris Dickerson before Wednesday's game, but not before the outfielder was thrown for a loop when he was told of his promotion. Dickerson said he was told he was going to Boston after he stepped up to bat in the first inning of Tuesday's game with Triple-A Norfolk. Tides manager Ron Johnson then pulled him aside and told to go pack. “I found out walking up to lead off the game,” Dickerson said. “He's like, 'Come here.' I'm ready for him to give me a sign or something and he says, 'Get off the field.

After seeing Orioles third baseman Manny Machado crumble to the ground beyond the first base bag with an apparent left leg injury on Monday afternoon, some of Machado's teammates reacted on Twitter following the Orioles' 5-4 walk-off loss in Tampa Bay. While Machado was running out a ball in the top of the seventh inning in Tampa Bay, it appeared that Machado's left knee buckled and gave way as his foot came across the outside of the first-base bag....

    Sunday's game ended with pinch-runner Chris Dickerson getting doubled up at first base because he was on second during a foul pop-up in shallow right.     It was a bad way to end a bad game.      But Dickerson said afterward, no matter how it looked, it probably was unavoidable for him. He was stealing on the 0-2 pitch and though he heard the crack of the bat, he didn't know where the ball was.   He saw White Sox Alexi Ramirez shortstop looking like the ball had been hit on the ground behind Dickerson, who was in a full sprint and then sliding headfirst.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Chris Dickerson's revelation occurred while playing in the minor leagues, when the outfielder noticed how often his Triple-A teammates used plastic water bottles and - without a thought - tossed them in the trash. "Each guy is going through eight, nine bottles a day," said Dickerson, who was playing with the Cincinnati Reds' Triple-A affiliate in Louisville at the time in 2008. "What I noticed was coming in from [batting practice] that everyone was just tossing bottles in the trash and you'd go in and look in the trash and there's hundreds of plastic bottles in there.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles' goal in the last few games of spring training is to get out of Sarasota healthy. In an 11-8 loss to the New York Yankees, the Orioles saw two players - both likely headed to the minors - leave the game with injuries. Right-hander Jair Jurrjens left in the second inning after getting hit in the right side by a liner off the bat of designated hitter Thomas Neal . Jurrjens was diagnosed with a right rib bruise and will have an X-Ray on Thursday morning.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Orioles officially purchased the contract of Cuban outfielder Henry Urrutia before Friday's game against the Texas Rangers. The club designated outfielder Chris Dickerson for assignment to clear a roster spot. The left-handed hitting Urrutia will make his first major league start Saturday as the designated hitter against Texas right-hander Ross Wolf, manager Buck Showalter said. Urrutia, who was signed to a $778,500 signing bonus last July but was stranded in the Dominican Republic and Haiti with visa issues, needed just 67 minor league games to make it to the majors.
