CLEVELAND -- Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez won't start against the Chicago White Sox in the Orioles' upcoming series at U.S. Cellular Field, but he'll be back in the major leagues this week and may start against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field either Saturday or Sunday. Wei-Yin Chen will pitch on regular four days' rest Wednesday in the series finale against the White Sox because they have struggled against left-handers, while the Chicago Cubs haven't hit right-handers this season.

Chris Tillman didn't feel like he had his best stuff Wednesday night, but he still managed to have a relatively easy time against the New York Yankees. Tillman recorded his 11th quality start in his last 13 outings, allowing just two runs and five hits in seven strong innings, striking out three batters and walking none in the Orioles' 5-3 win. In three starts against the Yankees this season, Tillman is 1-1 with a 2.18 ERA. “You know what? It wasn't very good for me tonight,” Tillman said.

If you weren't certain before, Wednesday night at Camden Yards confirmed it: The American League East is officially on its ear. It was the Orioles who bided their time against a filthy starter, battered the underbelly of the opposition's bullpen and moved further ahead in the division standings. With a 5-3 comeback victory paced by eighth-inning home runs from Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones, the Orioles pulled a Yankee on the New York Yankees. “We are just playing good baseball,” said Jones, whose two-out, three-run blast landed in the Orioles' bullpen.

Manager Buck Showalter said he has had preliminary discussions with his coaching staff and the Orioles player development staff this week about potential call-ups when rosters expand Sept. 1. The Orioles' 40-man roster is currently full, so the club would have to clear space to add and promote any nonroster players. But one spot can be created by transferring catcher Matt Wieters to the 60-day disabled list. “There's obviously some roster issues we have to manage with the 40, but we have a couple guys we haven't even put on the 60-day disabled list yet,” Showalter said.

With right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez returning from the disabled list to start Saturday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Orioles must make a difficult roster decision in order to clear room for him. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Friday's game that either a reliever or starter could be sent to the minor leagues in order to clear 25-man space for Jimenez's return, but that decision won't be made until he sees how the team's pitching...

TORONTO - The Orioles still don't know their next step with pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, but sending the veteran right-hander to the bullpen for the time being is among the possibilities. Jimenez, who remains on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain and hasn't pitched since July 5, will throw a side session before Wednesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. A decision on whether Jimenez will return to the rotation for this weekend's series against the St. Louis Cardinals at Camden Yards might not be made for the next few days.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman dominated the Seattle Mariners lineup again Sunday, but he wants everyone to know that it's nothing personal. Of course, Tillman came over to the Orioles in the 2008 trade with the Mariners that also brought All-Star center fielder Adam Jones and three others for left-hander Erik Bedard - a move that is widely credited for being the watershed moment in the club's return to prominence after 14 consecutive losing seasons....

Maybe this is one of those gift horse situations that you shouldn't analyze too closely, but it's hard not to notice that the Orioles are in one of the most productive offensive slumps ever. Their 1-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday is just their latest high-wire act in the grueling 2 1/2-week stretch against the top teams in the American League West that ended with yet another important series victory against another tough playoff contender. The lovely totals, as broadcaster Joe Angel likes to call them, clearly don't tell the whole story, but no one is going to turn a nose up at 10 wins in 16 games at a time when the Orioles needed to solidify their hold on first place in the AL East.

Perhaps it was fitting that the first leadoff home run in Nick Markakis' career would stand as the game-winner Sunday in a 1-0 pitchers' duel victory over the Seattle Mariners at Camden Yards. In his nine years with the Orioles, Markakis has been both a consistent contributor and someone who often has been overlooked while flashier players take center stage. “He is probably the epitome of consistency,” Orioles reliever Tommy Hunter said. “If you can wrap it up and put it in a bottle and give it to somebody - whatever he does on a daily basis - you'd be a rich man. He's a big-time part of this team, part of this organization and he just continues to play baseball.” A first-inning solo homer normally would go unnoticed over the course of a game, but Markakis' shot onto the right-field flag court on the sixth pitch from Seattle right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma became more crucial as the afternoon played out. It was the only run Iwakuma or Orioles starter Chris Tillman would allow in an old-fashioned pitchers' duel.

OAKLAND - A few days before the All-Star break, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that there will be several starting pitchers available before the trade deadline who won't be as good at the team's existing six starting pitchers. As the Orioles come out of the break in first place in the AL East, one of Showalter's biggest challenges might be how he manages his six starting pitchers. It won't be as simple as keeping every pitcher in line. He's already started to utilize matchups, slotting right-hander Bud Norris to make his first second-half start in Anaheim (3-0, 0.32 ERA in four career starts against the Angels)
