B. J. SurhoffHis projected role for the Orioles: Manager Davey Johnson plans on using him as the third baseman, although he's not wholly set on this. Surhoff has been taking ground balls daily at third; yesterday, he worked for about an hour, with third base coach Sam Perlozzo whacking grounders at him on an otherwise empty field.Number crunching: He batted .320 and struck out just 43 times in 415 at-bats last season, which should make him a tough challenge in the No. 5 spot for those who choose to pitch around cleanup man Bobby Bonilla.

Two years ago, Orioles bench coach Sam Perlozzo came close to being the next manager of the Seattle Mariners. They called him back for a second interview, and it's believed he was runner-up to Bob Melvin. Melvin was fired earlier this week, after the Mariners lost 99 games, but Perlozzo might not get as close to the job this time. Major league sources don't expect him to be a front-runner since Bill Bavasi replaced Pat Gillick as general manager. Gillick interviewed Perlozzo after the 2002 season, and his interest could come into play again if Gillick ends up running the Washington franchise.

Orioles vice president Mike Flanagan gave manager Lee Mazzilli a ringing endorsement this week, saying he sees no reason Mazzilli won't be back for a second season next year. But team owner Peter Angelos has told close associates he still isn't convinced Mazzilli should return. The Orioles have 20 games remaining, and yesterday, high-ranking team officials said Angelos probably won't make a final decision until the season ends. Mazzilli, who signed a two-year deal with two option years last November, has had an up-and-down first season at the team's helm.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos and manager Mike Hargrove were pulling for bench coach Sam Perlozzo to land the Seattle Mariners' managing job last week, but when he didn't get it, they were both glad to have him back. Perlozzo's contract with the Orioles has expired, but Angelos said he'll be back, along with the rest of the coaching staff. "He's an excellent coach and a fine guy," Angelos said. "I'm sorry for him that he didn't get [the Seattle job], but it's good for us." The Mariners interviewed 12 candidates for the position, then narrowed the field to four finalists, including Perlozzo, before ultimately selecting former Arizona Diamondbacks bench coach and former Orioles catcher Bob Melvin.

TORONTO - Add the Chicago White Sox to the list of teams that have expressed interest in acquiring Orioles starting pitcher Sidney Ponson. With the White Sox opening a three-game series at Camden Yards tonight, industry sources say the Orioles will be taking a close look at Chicago's players in case a deal can be struck before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Orioles vice president Syd Thrift has said he would have to be "overwhelmed" to trade one of his starting pitchers, but teams continue to inquire about Ponson, Jason Johnson and Scott Erickson.

Orioles manager Mike Hargrove received word during the weekend that his ailing mother had taken a turn for the worse, so he flew home to Texas yesterday, leaving control of the team to bench coach Sam Perlozzo. After beginning Easter with that unsettling news, the Orioles found a way to make things easy for Perlozzo, playing a game so crisp, it was Tough Decision Lite. Melvin Mora hit a two-run homer in the first inning, and Omar Daal turned in his first dominant pitching performance of the season, as the Orioles coasted to a 4-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before 25,787 at Camden Yards.

As the 15th manager in Orioles history, Lee Mazzilli might be inheriting more than a fourth-place team trying to re-establish itself as a yearly contender. He also could get an entire coaching staff. Introduced as Mike Hargrove's replacement yesterday during a news conference at the B&O warehouse, Mazzilli said he will invite all six coaches to return for the 2004 season, including two who were finalists for the job he just received. He'll soon find out how many of them accept the offer.

Much anticipation but little unusual accompanied the four-week process that brought Mike Hargrove to Baltimore on Wednesday afternoon as the Orioles' new manager.Hargrove possessed the most distinguished resume of nine candidates to interview with the Orioles' five-man advisory committee. His selection surprised few and, judging by the unscientific forum of talk radio, pleased many who had lamented the team's performance the past two seasons.The least ordinary aspect of Hargrove's hiring remains the composition of his coaching staff, still incomplete but potentially including as many as three men who interviewed for the Orioles' managerial vacancy.
