SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles manager Buck Showalter had praise for new outfielder David Lough, but also tempered expectations for the 28-year-old. The Orioles acquired Lough in December for third baseman Danny Valencia, who emerged as the team's right-handed designated hitter against left-handed pitching. “Kansas City is a very good organization, and I hope and I think that the reason why we got him is because they really had a need for Danny Valencia,” Showalter said. Danny will fit them well.

DETROIT -- Delmon Young, whose pinch-hit double pushed the Orioles to victory in Game 2, received the start in left field in Game 3 against left-hander David Price. Young was expected in the lineup, but the fact he was playing left and Nelson Cruz was the designated hitter was a bit of a surprise. Young had started just 17 games in left this year, and only three in September. Manager Buck Showalter said Young's familiarity with left field at Comerica Park - he was a Tiger in 2011 and 2012 - played a part into the decision.

Orioles left fielder David Lough said he may not be completely over the concussion symptoms that have bothered him intermittently since spring training, but he believes he won't have any problems playing the way he wants to in the majors. “It's not just going to go away in one day. It might take some time,” said Lough, who missed a week in spring training and a few more days this week. “But I feel good enough where I can go out and perform at a level that I know I can compete at and I think that's all that matters.” Lough first began experiencing dizziness and floaters in his eyes in spring training after attempting an inside-the-park homer.

Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez said he was somewhat surprised that he was added to the Orioles' American League Division Series roster, but he thought he might have a chance after the way he had pitched down the stretch. “I was wondering,” said Jimenez, who was 6-9 with a 4.81 ERA in 25 games this year but 2-0 with a 3.27 ERA in three September appearances. “I realize that the other guys have been doing their job, so I know it was a tough call. But I was really happy to have the opportunity to be on the roster, and I'm looking forward to doing my job.” When deciding on his 25-man ALDS roster, manager Buck Showalter said he considered several factors, including the Detroit Tigers' right-handed heavy lineup, versatility and recent performance.

BRADENTON, Fla. -- David Lough is on the travel roster and said he expects to play a little bit tonight against the Pittsburgh Pirates at McKechnie Field. It has been more than a week since he has been on a field due to a stiff neck and potential concussion symptoms that included dizziness and floaters in his eyes. “I'm just trying to get comfortable again before we break here. It feels like forever I haven't played,” said Lough, who was scratched from playing last Friday and hasn't been in the lineup since then.

J.J. Hardy said Friday that he absolutely, positively expected to be in Saturday's starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards. He is. Hardy, who has played once since the third game of the season due to lower back spasms, is batting sixth and playing shortstop against the Jays. He hasn't played at all since last Saturday - a full week of rest. Also in the starting lineup is David Lough, who hasn't started a game since Monday in New York. He has been dealing with potential concussion symptoms that also cost him a week playing time in spring training.

Orioles left fielder David Lough isn't aggravated with his struggles at the plate, even if Orioles manager Buck Showalter is frustrated for him. Lough is batting .169 this year and is 5-for-36 in his past 19 games. He wasn't in the starting lineup against the Cleveland Indians on Friday or Saturday, with Nelson Cruz playing left field and Delmon Young filling the designated hitter spot. Lough is starting in left field and batting eighth Sunday. "I got kind of frustrated for" Lough, Showalter said Friday.

NEW YORK -- Orioles outfielder David Lough, whom the club feared might have to go on the 15-day disabled list with concussion-like symptoms, passed a series of tests in Baltimore on Wednesday and returned to New York to rejoin the club. He entered as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning. “David is on his way back,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Wednesday's game. “He will be here for the game, at some point, if he can make all the connections. He had some potential concussion symptoms that we wanted to check out, and we did. And we're completely clear from that.

NEW YORK - Orioles third baseman Jonathan Schoop knows he will have his share of growing pains at the major league level, but as he struggled through the first five games of the season, one of his teammates noticed that something was amiss with the 22-year-old. Schoop, the club's top position player prospect, is an aggressive hitter at the plate. He jumps on mistakes and can send them into the seats. And that's why he's here in the majors -- because he showed that in spring training, when he hit .385 to earn one of the Orioles' final Opening Day roster spots.

DETROIT -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said during spring training that left fielder David Lough could be eased, at some point, into the leadoff role against right-handers. Six games into the season, Lough has started four times and batted first twice - in consecutive games against right-handers Saturday and Sunday - after hitting second in his first two starts of the year. Showalter hasn't committed to the speedy Lough as the permanent leadoff hitter yet, instead of right fielder Nick Markakis, but it looks like it could end up that way. “It's an option.

We are going to get the bar going a lot in the next few weeks. There will be lots of things to discuss. Lots of predictions for you to share. Much has been made about what the Orioles' roster for the American League Division Series will look like. I'd imagine we'll know at some point today, though Buck Showalter doesn't have to submit it until Thursday morning. Honestly, I think it's pretty set. To me there are only two spots that are unclear. That's because I believe Kelly Johnson, T.J. McFarland and David Lough are going to make the roster.

NEW YORK -- A key ingredient to the Orioles' formula for winning this season has been hitting home runs. They have relied on it more than any club in the major leagues. But in their 9-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday afternoon, the Orioles mounted their best offensive outing in nearly two weeks without a homer - all while ending New York's postseason hopes in front of an announced 46,056 at Yankee Stadium. The nine runs were the Orioles' highest offensive output since a 10-6 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sept.

The sweet smell of celebration -- an odorous combination of champagne and beer -- still lingered inside the home clubhouse of Camden Yards one day after the Orioles wrapped up the American League East title. Backed by a two-homer game from Steve Pearce, there was no hangover Wednesday night as the Orioles swept the second-place Toronto Blue Jays with a 6-1 victory in front of an announced 37,537 giving the club its 10th win in the last 11 games. “That's what we do,” Pearce said of returning strong the day after clinching the division.

The Orioles' final homestand of the regular season was supposed to be one of celebration. With the opportunity to celebrate their first American League East title since 1997 among their hometown crowd at Camden Yards, Friday's day-night doubleheader against the New York Yankees offered a chance to take two sizable steps toward a postseason berth. But before they took the field for the first game of their seven-game stay in Baltimore, the atmosphere was subdued with news that Chris Davis had been handed a 25-game suspension, part of which will be served in the postseason should the Orioles get there, for a second failed drug test for an amphetamine.

Within the last week the Orioles have added Jimmy Paredes, Alejandro De Aza, and Quintin Berry to their roster. The moves address a major deficiency of this club: A lack of speed. The Orioles are dead last in the major leagues -- by far -- in stolen bases. They have 36. The Miami Marlins and the Boston Red Sox are tied for the second-fewest with 49. Five individual players had more than the entire Orioles' team. The Los Angeles Dodgers' Dee Gordon leads the major leagues with 58 stolen bases, 22 more than the Orioles.

Shortstop J.J. Hardy, who missed one game and part of another with lower back spasms, is back in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds at Camden Yards. Hardy is batting sixth, one spot ahead of Kelly Johnson, who will be playing third base and making his first start with the Orioles. Johnson made his club debut Tuesday as a defensive replacement at third base. David Lough, who has been hitting better in limited action recently, has been moved up to the second spot in the lineup versus Reds right-hander Dylan Axelrod.

BOSTON - Everything seemed to go the Orioles' way for 5 1/2 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night at Fenway Park. But after an ESPN nationally broadcast returned from a commercial break for the bottom of the sixth, everything unraveled for the Orioles. They lost a five-run lead and Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy to injury. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez lost his groove with one pitch that was sent into the Boston night, and the sure-handed Orioles defense committed three errors in the final three innings to set the stage for a walk-off loss, 6-5, to the Red Sox. “That's part of baseball,” Jimenez said.

As the Orioles enter the final month of the regular season, their accomplishments are starting to mount along with their win total. They currently have the second-best record in baseball and a nine-game lead in the American League East division. And as the calendar turns to September, they even can claim a magic number of 19 to clinch their first division title in 17 years. Meanwhile, the Orioles continue to let their bats lead the way, hitting three homers - including a grand slam from shortstop J.J. Hardy that capped a seven-run sixth inning - in a 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon in front of an announced 40,905 at Camden Yards.

TORONTO -- The Orioles still have two more series against the Toronto Blue Jays after tonight's series finale, including the final three games of the regular season at Rogers Centre. Although the Orioles currently lead the American League East by four games over the Blue Jays, those two series in September could decide the division if the two teams remain close. And the Blue Jays likely will slot right-hander Drew Hutchison to pitch in both of those series, given his success against the Orioles in his brief major league career.
