The Orioles didn't end up with 20th-round draftee Ryan Ripken, son of Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr., but they have signed a player this year with a familiar name to Orioles fans: Right-handed hitting first baseman Cory Segui, the son of former Oriole David Segui and the grandson of former big league pitcher Diego Segui. Segui, 20, played last year at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College, but after a subpar season was not drafted. He was headed to Emporia State University in Kansas on a baseball scholarship, but wanted to play pro ball.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Think Randy Milligan is in a bad spot? How about David Segui?Two years ago, Segui started for the same championship club in Rochester as Leo Gomez and Chris Hoiles. Now Gomez is the Orioles' third baseman, and Hoiles is the No. 1 catcher. Segui, meanwhile, is third on the depth chart at first base."If the bus wrecks," he joked, "I've got a pretty good chance to play."Actually, he might be pressed to even make the club. Segui, 25, is so lost in the first base-DH shuffle, he's considered an outfielder now. Barring a trade, it appears he must beat out one of three players -- Dwight Evans, Chito Martinez or Brady Anderson -- to win a spot.

Do you believe David Segui's explanation for his use of human growth hormone? Does hGH make your nose grow? I'm only asking because it looks like David's nose is getting bigger and bigger every time he tells his side of the story. Michael Block Hampstead I believe Segui's explanations as much as I believe that Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan were once a unified duo or that the O's haven't become a dysfunctional franchise under Peter Angelos. Bill Piccirilli Lutherville David Segui should have been taking "human broken fingernail prevention hormone."

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - When David Segui was traded by the Orioles to the New York Mets in March 1994, majority owner Peter Angelos still enjoyed a honeymoon as the franchise's savior, Camden Yards was a novelty, "Homicide: Life on the Streets" was a cult hit and the club had just signed free-agent first baseman Rafael Palmeiro to make Segui's presence expendable. Segui never forgot Baltimore. He long hoped the team would reacquire him to help in a stretch drive, a point he made to several players on occasional clubhouse visits.

Orioles first baseman David Segui doesn't worry about the various perceptions of him, often misguided, coming from people who make judgments based on appearance alone. His life is his business. If he wants to bleach his hair blond, so what? If he chooses to paint his fingernails black, have the faces of his two young children tattooed on his arms and ride the streets on one of his motorcycles, that's fine, too. "It's all just for show," he says while on full display in the clubhouse before a recent game.

By giving himself up in public the way he has since last weekend, David Segui did nobody a favor except himself. And chances are excellent that he didn't do himself as much of a favor as he thinks. Sequi's position, as presented to ESPN and to The Sun, is, basically, "You can't pin anything on me, I'm clean." Yes, he knows about, uses and understands human growth hormone. He had prescriptions. He had doctor's notes. He had a diagnosed health condition. Everything was legal. He was simply giving a concerned teammate the kind of sound medical advice you can only get from the guy who undresses next to you at work.

NEW YORK -- Former Orioles first baseman David Segui told ESPN yesterday that he is one of the players named in Jason Grimsley's affidavit on drug use in baseball and that he used human growth hormone obtained through a doctor's prescription. Segui, the first player in the affidavit to be identified, was a 15-year major league veteran who finished his career with the Orioles in 2004. He is the third former Oriole along with Grimsley and Rafael Palmeiro to be connected to baseball's battle against the use of performance enhancers.

Other than some muscle soreness in his legs, David Segui made it through his injury rehab assignment without incident and most likely will be activated this week by the Orioles. It's possible Segui will return to the 25-man roster today if Jerry Hairston is put on the disabled list, though no decision has been made. Segui started at first base for Single-A Frederick on Monday, the only time he played in the field, and didn't report any swelling in his left knee. "It's as good as it's going to get. It's not going to get any better," said Segui, who's batting .298 with one homer and seven RBIs.

It's midseason, and the Orioles have a manager on the hot seat again. Lee Mazzilli has been at the helm for 85 games, and already there is mounting speculation he won't last the season. Limited by injuries and their pitchers' inconsistency, the Orioles lost 25 of their final 38 games before the All-Star break, including two of three against the woeful Kansas City Royals last weekend, to fall into last place in the American League East. At 37-48, they entered the break with their worst record since 1999.

DENVER - With the bench filled with injured and unusable players, the Orioles made another roster move yesterday, placing B.J. Surhoff on the disabled list and recalling Jose Leon from Triple-A Ottawa's roster. Leon never even left Denver after being shipped out to make room for David Newhan on Friday. The Orioles tried to put him on the midnight flight to Durham, N.C., but it was booked. That turned out to be a blessing once Surhoff strained his left calf muscle during Friday night's game.

Before taking the field yesterday for pre-game stretching, David Segui leaned on a bat in front of his locker, studied his sore left knee and wondered how much longer the Orioles would play short-handed without him. It doesn't appear that they're willing to go any further with the current arrangement. Unable to run because of pain and swelling in the knee, Segui most likely will be placed on the disabled list for the fourth time in the past two seasons. The move is expected to come before tonight's game in Cleveland.

David Segui returned to the Orioles' starting lineup last night, but he was still at odds with the organization over how it has handled his latest injury. Segui was diagnosed with a bruised tendon and damaged cartilage in his left wrist, and the team's medical staff decided he wouldn't make the injury worse by playing. In the second year of a four-year, $28 million contract that makes him the team's highest-paid active player, Segui willingly accepted his place as the No. 3 hitter in the lineup.

David Segui had no interest in participating in last year's Opening Day ceremonies for the Orioles, not with his season beginning on the disabled list and more criticism coming from fans who gave up trying to keep track of his injuries. No wonder last night's festivities meant so much to him - the jog down the orange carpet during introductions, the applause, the realization that he made it through spring training in one piece and was starting against Boston's Pedro Martinez. Then he got drilled in the back.

Trailing after the first inning, the Orioles sent 14 batters to the plate in the third and scored eight times to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 14-5, yesterday. The Orioles battered former New York Yankees pitcher Jeff Weaver, who left in the third without getting an out. Ten of the 14 batters reached against him, and it could have been worse. Brian Roberts was thrown out trying to steal in the first inning, and Miguel Tejada overran the bag and was tagged out after Weaver sailed a throw into shallow right field.
