It's optional whether a pitcher uses a protective screen when throwing batting practice. Jamie Walker might want to reconsider his choice. Walker apparently will be OK after taking a liner from Nick Markakis off the back of his head Friday. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital for further evaluation, but a club spokesman said the left-hander was alert and fine. Markakis went into the clubhouse looking for Walker, but the reliever already had left the complex. "It definitely made my heart skip a little bit," Markakis said.

Orioles reliever Danys Baez informed club officials yesterday that he has decided to have ligament-transplant surgery to repair the partially torn ligament in his right elbow. Baez, who started the season as the Orioles' top setup man but struggled mightily after a solid April, still hasn't set a date or chosen a doctor for the surgery, but it will force him to miss next season, joining closer Chris Ray on the sideline. Ray had the same procedure, often called Tommy John surgery, last month and is expected to miss most if not all of next season.

Remember when Daenerys Targaryen was just a little girl afraid of her older (loser) brother?  My, how times have changed.  In  “Valar Dohaeris,” the Season 3 premiere of HBO's “Game of Thrones,” Daenerys is looking more and more like the queen ascendant. I view this as a very good development, because (aside from Arya Stark and possibly Tyrion Lannister) the fair-haired Targaryen girl is my favorite character in “A Song of Ice and Fire,” the George R.R. Martin books on which the TV show is based.

TORONTO -- While there is uncertainty about who will be the Orioles' closer next year with the news that Chris Ray had ligament transplant surgery on his right elbow, manager Dave Trembley said there should be no such ambiguity for the rest of this season. Even though Trembley removed Danys Baez in the middle of a save situation during Wednesday's 6-3 victory over the New York Yankees, the manager said Baez will remain the team's closer in most situations. "I don't think there's anybody else," Trembley said.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -The Orioles continued to whittle down the candidates for their rotation Wednesday, informing Danys Baez that if he makes the team, it will be out of the bullpen. The decision leaves five candidates - Hayden Penn, Adam Eaton, Mark Hendrickson, Alfredo Simon and Brian Bass - competing for three spots. "I can't tell you where he's going to pitch in the bullpen, but I know we're going to try to do the best we can to not overuse him and bring him along," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said.

The Orioles have struck out to this point in adding a slugger to the middle of their lineup, but they are having no such problems in overhauling their bullpen. According to club sources, the Orioles have agreed in principle to a three-year deal with Atlanta Braves free-agent reliever Danys Baez, who will join recent acquisition Jamie Walker as one of Chris Ray's primary setup men. Baez's deal hinges on the right-hander's passing a physical, which could happen as early as today. Though exact terms of the deal aren't known, it is believed the Orioles will pay between $5 million and $6 million per season for the 29-year-old pitcher, who has 111 saves in six big league seasons.

WASHINGTON - -Orioles reliever Danys Baez isn't sure whether he has ever scored a run before. Certainly not at the big league level. Certainly not the game-winner. And absolutely, positively, never had he scored the game-winning run in a contest in which he also picked up the victory. Not until Friday night in the Orioles' 4-2, 12-inning victory over the Washington Nationals in the first "Battle of the Beltways" interleague game of 2009. Baez's two-out slapper bounced safely down the third base line and ignited a two-run rally that essentially halted a four-game skid for the Orioles (17-25)

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -The booing was the furthest thing from Danys Baez's mind. As he walked off the mound after an outing that typified his trying 2007 season, all Baez could think about was the pain in his right elbow. He didn't pitch again in 2007, his lasting memory his Sept. 12 appearance against the Los Angeles Angels in which he allowed two hits - including a homer - walked three, surrendered two earned runs and got jeered by what remained of the home crowd. Baez, 31, will finally be back on the mound in an Orioles uniform today with a surgically repaired right elbow and his eyes on a new role.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - - On a rocky plane ride in the early hours of Thursday morning, Orioles manager Dave Trembley attempted plot his lineup without the club's leading hitter, Adam Jones. It wasn't just the violent rainstorm hammering the plane that gave him the jitters. "Last night, my pencil, along with my stomach, was jumping," Trembley said. "Jones is just a tough void in the lineup to fill. But I wanted to balance it as best I possibly could." The lineup he devised, which included shortstop Cesar Izturis batting in Jones' customary second spot for just the second time this season, delivered in the Orioles' 9-5 win over the Kansas City Royals in the first game of a four-game series.

Three important things happened on Sunday's episode of"Game of Thrones. " 1) Somebody stole Daenerys Targaryen's dragons.  2) The traitor Theon Greyjoy sacked Wintefell. 3) And The Hound's badass quotient went up by about eighty.   First things first: If Daenerys Targaryen's three baby dragons are the metaphorical equivalent of the atomic bomb, we've got some rogue nukes out there in the east. Dany spent the episode, entitled "The Old Gods and the New," trying to buy ships and an army for her triumphant return to the Seven Kingdoms, only to return home to Xaro Xhoan Daxos' palace to find her prized possessions stolen and many of her men slain.

She won the 200-yard freestyle in 1 minute, 56.67 seconds and the 500-yard freestyle in 5:10.62. Potis, 15, also helped the defending IAAM A Conference champion Blazers to wins in a pair of relays, the 200-yard freestyle and the 400-yard freestyle. Last season, she was second in the 500 free and third in the 200 individual medley in the championship meet while helping the Blazers win the 400 freestyle relay.

Orioles reliever Danys Baez doesn't know where he'll pitch next year, but he would like it to be on the East Coast and wouldn't mind remaining in the American League East. "I'd like to stay in the East. I like pitching [in the division], and the East is more convenient for me and my family," said Baez, whose family lives in Miami. "I would love to be on a contending team and get into the playoffs. But I have to wait until the offseason and free agency and talk to my agent." The three-year, $19 million contract that Baez signed with the Orioles in November 2006 expires at season's end. And though he hasn't ruled out returning to Baltimore, it's highly unlikely that Baez, 32, will be back with the rebuilding club.

There's only one thing I know for sure about the cloud of indecision that has been hanging over the Orioles organization for the past week or so: I wouldn't want to be Peter Angelos right now. Oh, I suppose having a billion dollars would be OK, and it's probably fun to sue people anytime you want, but I wouldn't want to be the guy who has to decide whether to make big personnel changes or stay the course with the 2007 season seemingly coming unglued....
