Former Oriole outfielder Felix Pie is officially leaving the organization for another American League club. Pie has agreed to terms on a minor league deal and spring invite with the Cleveland Indians, according to an industry source. The 26-year-old Pie could make $1 million in salary and performance bonuses in the majors. He also would be able to opt out of the contract if he doesn't make the Indians' Opening Day roster. Pie spent three seasons with the Orioles, batting .259 with 14 homers in 268 games.

CHICAGO -- Struggling Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez was sent to the bullpen Tuesday, bumping him from a crowded starting rotation in a move that seemed destined to occur since his last rocky outing over the weekend in Cleveland. Before Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, Orioles mananger Buck Showalter announced his rotation through Monday, and Jimenez wasn't among the starters. He will be available out of the bullpen starting Wednesday. Showalter didn't rule out the possibility of using Jimenez as a spot starter, but at this point Jimenez seems destined for mop-up duty out of the bullpen.

Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez has a $50 million contract, a 2-6 record and the knowledge that his recent starts just won't cut it. And the 9-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians, his former team, on Saturday at Camden Yards was the most frustrating of them all. “They found the holes,” Jimenez said in Spanish on Sunday. “A ground ball up the middle, a bloop to left field, an infield hit. They hit me five times, and of those, the only hard one was the fifth, Yan Gomes' line drive.” A walk and Gomes' hit put two runners on with nobody out in the fifth inning Saturday.

CLEVELAND -- Ever since the Orioles reached the postseason two years ago, they've made a point of not panicking when momentum appears to be slipping away. They just try and wait it out. So after running into a buzzsaw of quality pitching for the better part of three games against the Cleveland Indians, the Orioles' offense finally emerged Sunday afternoon in the later innings of a 4-1 victory at Progressive Field. The Orioles had scored just one run in 25 previous innings - and none in the last 17 - during the weekend series before they broke through for two runs in the sixth that ultimately saved them from bring swept for just the second time this year.

The Orioles aren't going to make a big deal of winning one game in late May against a non-division opponent, but the club's 4-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon had the feel of one they just didn't want - or couldn't afford - to lose. A defeat would have sunk the Orioles (25-23) back to .500 and marked their 10th loss in 14 games. It also would have sent them on a 10-game road trip having lost three of four games at home to the Indians (24-27). “Very important,” first baseman Steve Pearce said about the nature of Sunday's win. “It was a great team win, and we'll carry that momentum into Milwaukee.” Perhaps it was more of a relief to the announced 37,649 who showed up at Camden Yards on a perfect, 77-degree day to see the Orioles finally win on a Sunday.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis knew that, eventually, the runs would come. Over the past four days, the Orioles had scored their share of runs, but the club's recent offensive surge had not translated into wins. Davis, who struggled to find his power stroke in the season's first weeks before briefly landing on the disabled list with an oblique injury, seems to have found his groove - as have his teammates. And Friday night, they had a victory to show for it. Davis drove in four runs, including his seventh homer of the season, a two-run blast in the fifth inning that gave the Orioles the lead in an eventual 8-4 win before an announced 39,602 on Fireworks Night at Camden Yards.

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - It has been more than a decade since Brady Anderson had to wonder about his place in the lineup. He was such a regular fixture in the Orioles' outfield that it is he - not consecutive-games king Cal Ripken - who holds the club record for games played at Oriole Park. So this must be a strange time. The Cleveland Indians are preparing for another run at the American League Central title and Anderson finds himself in an unfamiliar uniform and an uncomfortable situation, forced to audition for a significant role in their 2002 playoff bid. It is not a sure thing.

The first time Bobby Ojeda saw Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital, it wasn't at all what he expected. The mix of old and new buildings on the wooded hillside looked imposing to him, like something out of a Hollywood movie. It could have been a fancy private school, or a small college.But they don't send you to private school when you're a major league baseball pitcher struggling to get over seeing two teammates killed in a boating accident. Mr. Ojeda came to Sheppard Pratt in July 1993 because he had survived, but still wasn't living.

CLEVELAND -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked directly after Saturday night's 6-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians whether right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez was going to make his next scheduled start. The answer didn't answer the question -- but it was particularly telling. “If something like that was going to change, he'd hear it from me first, obviously,” Showalter said. Jimenez, who allowed six runs to the Indians in 4 1/3 innings Saturday, was asked about potentially losing his rotation spot now that he is 4-9 with a 4.83 ERA. He simply said: “It's not up to me to think about that.

CLEVELAND - Orioles center fielder Adam Jones isn't one to swallow his opinion, but after the Orioles lost 2-1 in 11 innings Friday night on a walk-off home run by Cleveland Indians third baseman Mike Aviles, Jones carefully measured his words. “I plead the fifth. I think being smart in what you say will help you in the long run,” said Jones, who was involved in a controversial hit-by-pitch call in the eighth inning. “I'd rather take the high road tonight and … I'd just rather take the high road.” The Orioles (69-51)

So after missing three games, Hardy was back in the lineup Friday against the Cleveland Indians, batting sixth and playing shortstop. Hardy was 2-for-4 with one RBI and a walk in the 2-1 loss in 11 innings. “I came in today with a little bit of a question mark on how the baseball stuff was going to feel.

Washington, playing without leading scorer Jodie Taylor , went down a goal in the 18th minute, but Kerstin Garefrekes tied the game in the 49th and Nairn put the team ahead to stay after that.

I was doing a radio segment on 105.7 The Fan on Thursday night when host Terry Ford asked me an interesting question. And since we encourage recycling here at Connolly's, I thought I'd drop it on you. I was asked which Oriole did I think would improve in the second half. I was allowed only one answer. And there are several candidates. Chris Davis is an obvious one. It'd be really surprising if he hit under .200 all season. But he also has 15 homers and 48 RBIs. So I'm not picking him. You'd have to think Ubaldo Jimenez should be better than the 3-8 record, 4.52 ERA and league-leading 60 walks issued in 99 2/3 innings pitched in the first half.

The solitary orange banner waved over the left field wall at old Memorial Stadium for years. “HERE” is all it said in blocky black lettering. No other words were necessary. Everyone knew what it meant: here's where Frank hit it out. Wednesday marks the 47th anniversary of that historic home run, when Orioles outfielder and future Hall of Famer Frank Robinson became the only player to hit a baseball completely out of the old ballpark on 33rd Street during a game. It happened on May 8, 1966, in the second game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, when Robinson hit a mammoth two-run shot off Indians starter Luis Tiant in the first inning.

Orioles left-hander T.J. McFarland joked after the Orioles' 7-1 victory that he didn't know for certain he would be starting Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers until he was told to go into the clubhouse and talk to reporters late Monday night. The Orioles waited to announce that McFarland would get the spot start until they made sure that they didn't need him to pitch in relief Monday. Now McFarland, 25, will get his first start of the year and the second of his major league career.

I'd like to go to church this morning, Pentecost and all that, but there are all those people circling the house, pounding feebly at the door, and pleading for the answers to yesterday's quiz on word nerdiness. Here you are: the original ten sentences, the identification of the problems they present, and a note on scoring your nerdity at the end.    1. A rapidly developing drought and unseasonably hot weather throughout Maryland has stolen the early promise of this year's wet spring, parching lawns and gardens and raising fears among farmers of a return to the disastrously dry years of the mid-1980s.     Subject-verb agreement: drought and weather constitute a compound subject, so the verb has to be have stolen .    2. Although boys do get lice, they tend to prefer females.
