Looking for another hitter to use off the bench, the Orioles promoted catcher Steve Clevenger from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday and sent starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen to the club's Rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate. Clevenger, 28, has hit .240 in 75 at-bats with the Orioles this season and .305 in 226 at-bats with Norfolk. “We've been playing short a position player for a while, and we thought this was an opportunity to take care of that problem and give us a better chance to win tonight,” manager Buck Showalter said.

Looks like the Orioles will make another move today. The agent for catcher Steve Clevenger tweeted this morning that his client was headed back to Baltimore to join the Orioles. Clevenger has been raking at Triple-A, hitting .328 in 36 games, so in one sense this isn't a surprise. However, Clevenger played in one of the Tides' games in Friday's doubleheader and Norfolk has a doubleheader again today. So losing a catcher can't be ideal for the Tides. Plus, the Orioles only have two more games remaining before the All-Star break.

Dr. D. Stratton Woodruff often spends his lunch hour nourishing his healthy appetite for cantaloupe-shaped vases and other Clevenger glass delicacies at four thrift shops near his office in Bryn Mawr, Pa. Despite having assembled a smorgasbord of nearly 450 pieces, Dr. Woodruff still hasn't had his fill. A pioneering collector in a little-known field, his heart burns for a piece in each form and color made by Clevenger Bros. Glass Co., of Clayton, N.J., from around 1930 to the 1960s. Bargains remain to be had.While he thrives on a steady diet of antique reproduction glass blown and molded by Clevenger, Dr. Woodruff readily acknowledges that collectors with a taste for rare 18th- and early 19th-century American glass might view his cache "like a collection of second-hand bubble gum."

Shortstop Steve Clevenger and catcher Preston Pehrson, former All-Metro baseball players, have received releases from their respective colleges to accept scholarships to national champion Texas. The two left-handed hitters from Anne Arundel County - Clevenger from Linthicum and Pehrson from Broadneck - will be eligible to play this fall. They are the first from the metro area to receive a Longhorns scholarship since Broadneck's Brian Toronto in 1991. The Longhorns won the the NCAA College World Series in Omaha, Neb., last month for a sixth time, second most behind Southern Cal (12)

A Baltimore circuit judge, who has three times been the subject of judicial disciplinary investigations, ordered a spectator to jail for 10 days for crying out "love you" to her handcuffed brother in the courtroom - and then reversed himself after a public defender spoke up on her behalf. As Tamika Clevenger left a Baltimore courtroom Friday, she shouted, "Love you, Nick," which set off Judge Alfred Nance. He ordered a sheriff to pull Clevenger from the hallway and found the 24-year-old in contempt.

When Baltimore County police found the man they suspected had set nearly 20 fires in the Loch Raven area last winter, he was lying on a sofa in the basement of his home with covers drawn over his head. John Clevenger initially denied any role in the fires that scorched a service station, a half-dozen cars and many piles of trash and recycling materials, police said. But police say that when they pointed to the fresh mud on the pants and the smoky odor on the jacket near the couch, Clevenger confessed and admitted a fascination with fire.

BOYS Steve Clevenger Mount St. Joseph, baseball The junior shortstop's 11-for-14 week at the plate and perfect week in the field helped the Gaels (21-3) go 4-0 and move into the top spot in The Sun poll. In a 7-5 win over McDonogh on Tuesday, Clevenger was 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI. A day later, he went 3-for-4 with two runs and an RBI in the Gaels' 15-1 win over Gilman, followed by a 2-for-3 effort as Mount St. Joseph beat No. 4 Calvert Hall, 4-1, on Thursday. Clevenger also was 3-for-3 with two runs and two RBIs in the Gaels' 14-3 win over Archbishop Curley on Saturday.

Steve Clevenger wasn't sent down to Triple-A Norfolk because the Orioles weren't convinced his bat belonged in the majors. But the 28-year-old Pigtown native is trying to leave no doubt on that front this month with the Tides. Clevenger is batting .356/.392/.466 with eight doubles and 15 RBIs in 20 games with the International League affiliate, and his average is down from above .400 a week ago. Not including Monday afternoon's game, Clevenger has just three hits in the last week.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the decision to keep rookie Caleb Joseph on the active roster and send Steve Clevenger to Triple-A Norfolk was “51 to 49 percent.” In activating first baseman Chris Davis from the paternity list, the Orioles needed to send one of their three catchers to the minor leagues. It wasn't going to be veteran Nick Hundley, whom the Orioles acquired in a deal with the San Diego Padres on Saturday. So the choices were Joseph, a 27-year-old career minor leaguer who had one hit in 23 at-bats (.043)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Chris Tillman's four-seam fastball was in the 87-to-91-mph range Friday night, certainly not what it can be or what it has been in the past. In some instances, it would be a cause for alarm. But he commanded it on both sides of the plate and also threw his curveball and changeup over for strikes. And that was really the difference Friday as he pitched the first shutout of his career. Tillman said afterward that he didn't have early command of the curveball, but catcher Steve Clevenger kept calling for it. Tillman found it, and he was practically unhittable.

Before last night's game against the Detroit Tigers, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked about what it would take for Steve Clevenger to prove himself in his new role. With Matt Wieters on the disabled list to rest his injured elbow, Clevenger will get the opportunity to show what he can do as the team's primary catcher. The Mount St. Joseph graduate saw some time as the Chicago Cubs' starter in 2012, but he is set to have his biggest test to date since joining the Orioles.

Following a 55-minute rain delay that they probably shouldn't have had to endure Saturday night, the Orioles had new life against the Houston Astros. Closer Tommy Hunter had just blown a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning before a downpour descended on Camden Yards. But when the clouds moved out, the Orioles rallied with two outs in the ninth to force the game into extra innings. Down to their last out, the Orioles loaded the bases before pinch hitter Delmon Young beat out a bouncer to shortstop to drive in the tying run. One inning later, catcher Steve Clevenger (Mount St. Joseph)

Manny Machado finally hit against live pitching, should sprint soon and may have sneaked in a couple dashes in Sarasota, Fla., when no one was looking Saturday. The Orioles All-Star third baseman, who had offseason surgery on his left knee in October, has been steadily doing his rehabilitation in Florida without a set timetable for his return. On Saturday, he took a step forward by hitting against live pitching, specifically left-hander Johan Santana, who his rehabbing from shoulder surgery.

Sometimes, one play proves pivotal in the outcome of a game. Such was the case yesterday in the baseball showdown between Calvert Hall and Mount St. Joseph. That play occurred in the third inning of Calvert Hall's 9-7 victory, one that catapulted the No. 2-ranked Cardinals into first place in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's A Conference over the No. 4 Gaels. With Calvert Hall's Scott Krieger on second base after a two-out single and a stolen base, and Gavin Swanson on first after walking, Pat Nolan grounded sharply toward shortstop Steve Clevenger.

Orioles catcher Steve Clevenger regularly made it to Opening Day at Camden Yards growing up, even if it meant missing school. Clevenger grew up just across the street from Oriole Park in the Pigtown neighborhood of Baltimore, so making his first Opening Day roster with the Orioles is special. “It's a dream come true,” Clevenger said Sunday. “I get to play for my hometown team, the team I grew up rooting for. It's a special time.” Not long ago, Clevenger was sitting in the stands on Opening Day. “All the time,” he said.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Even though Steve Clevenger was told by Orioles manager Buck Showalter on Monday that he has won the team's backup catcher position to open the season, the Mount St. Joseph graduate knows that something could still happen to affect the position between now and Opening Day. Clevenger, who was acquired in a trade with the Chicago Cubs in July, is hitting .429 (12-for-28) this spring and has shown Showalter and his staff that he can be an asset defensively.
