TORONTO -- The Orioles have yet to make a roster move today to recall right-hander Steve Johnson, who joined the club this morning. The team is exploring several options, all likely DL moves, as the corresponding move to add Johnson. Manager Buck Showalter added that the team doesn't necessarily have to add Johnson today since he arrived this morning and there's a 24-hour taxi-squad rule. As for Johnson, he barely got any sleep last night. He left Allentown, Pa. around 2:45 this morning to catch a 6 a.m. flight to Toronto.

As expected, the Orioles have placed third baseman Manny Machado on the 15-day disabled list with what the team has diagnosed as a right knee ligament sprain. The team also has purchased the contract of infielder Cord Phelps from Triple-A Norfolk to fill Machado's spot on the 25-man roster. Catcher Matt Wieters, out for the season after Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery, was transferred to the 60-day DL to make 40-man roster space for Phelps. The move to place Machado on the DL is retroactive to Tuesday, so he would be eligible to return Aug. 27. The club diagnosed Machado with a ligament sprain in his right knee, but the true severity is still unknown because the specific ligament and degree of the sprain has yet to be announced.

The Orioles placed catcher Matt Wieters on the 15-day disabled list Sunday for just the second time in his career. This time, it was for a strained right elbow that has bothered him for several weeks and limited him to designated hitter for the past week. Here's what Wieters said after Sunday's game about going on the DL, possibly returning when he is eligible May 26 and the frustration of not playing. Why did you decide to go on the disabled list? Ultimately, it was what's going to get me back catching as quick as possible.

Manny Machado admits that he feared the worst when he fell to the ground at home plate Monday night, holding his right knee and writhing in pain in the batter's box. The moment brought back memories for Machado of last September, when his other knee buckled as he hit first base, ending his year with an injury that required offseason surgery and forced him to miss the first month this season. And even though the Orioles placed their third baseman on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, the team's diagnosis of a knee ligament sprain was met with relief.

The Orioles have placed right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with a blister on his right thumb and called up right-hander Alex Burnett from Triple-A Norfolk to take his roster spot. Burnett has been working as a reliever at Norfolk, so it's likely he won't be Gonzalez's replacement for Saturday's start. The Orioles can make another roster move before Saturday's game or turn to relievers Tommy Hunter or T.J. McFarland if they're available to start. The move to place Gonzalez on the DL is retroactive to May 4, so he will be eligible to return on May 19. The Orioles were planning to make a decision on Gonzalez today after his bullpen session.

Concerned that a mild injury could linger and leave them without an extra reliever, the Orioles placed right-hander Alfredo Simon on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday afternoon and recalled Jason Berken . Simon said he strained his right hamstring while running before Tuesday's game. He had a similar situation last season when he injured his left hamstring and ended up on the DL. "I was doing my work, working out and doing my sprints, and I felt a little pop in there," said Simon, who is 1-1 with a 3.14 ERA in five relief appearances this season.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris likely is heading to the 15-day disabled list after an MRI performed Thursday morning revealed a right groin strain. Norris, who left Saturday's game against the New York Yankees with groin discomfort, hoped to make his next scheduled start in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays. But following a bullpen session Wednesday, Norris was scratched from the start. Because of today's day off, the Orioles can remain in turn on regular rest until Tuesday.

The Orioles have reinstated pitcher Zach Britton from the 60-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.  Britton has been on the disabled list since March with a shoulder impingement. He now will be reinstated to the 40-man roster. To make room for Britton, right-hander Stu Pomeranz was placed on the 60-day disabled list due to an oblique tear. Britton made one of three rehab starts with Norfolk, allowing seven hits and four earned runs in six innings. Britton being optioned means he can't come to majors for 10 days unless there is an injury.

The Orioles placed infielder Wilson Betemit on the 15-day disabled list with an injured right wrist before Thursday's series finale against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards. The club recalled first baseman Joe Mahoney from Triple-A Norfolk to fill Betemit's spot on the 25-man roster. He will be available for Thursday's game.  Orioles manager Buck Showalter said an MRI revealed that Betemit had a small cartilage tear in the wrist and a bone bruise. He will report to Sarasota, Fla., on Friday morning but will be shut down for the next week to allow the injury enough time to heal.

(UPDATE: Showalter said Reimold is slated to go on the DL, but the Orioles won't make that move official until before tonight's game in case tonight's game gets rained out. The move would be retroactive to Tuesday, so he would be eiligible to return on May 16) The move hasn't been announced yet, but the Orioles are bringing up catcher Luis Exposito. It's likely that outfielder Nolan Reimold will be heading to the disabled list with a cervical spine injury because he's not listed as an available player on tonight's lineup card.  Speaking of the lineup, it's an interesting one. Second baseman Robert Andino, who has flourished in the No. 9 hole is hitting leadoff tonight.

In recent weeks, the Orioles have built the largest division lead in baseball as they chase their first American League East title in 17 years, but the club now faces the possibility of being without All-Star third baseman Manny Machado for an extended amount of time. An MRI performed Tuesday revealed no apparent structural damage, and the club said Machado was diagnosed with a right knee ligament sprain. In some ways, that was good news - especially given how Machado's season ended last year with a left knee injury that required offseason surgery - but it appears that this injury could force Machado to the 15-day disabled list.

With right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez returning from the disabled list to start Saturday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Orioles must make a difficult roster decision in order to clear room for him. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Friday's game that either a reliever or starter could be sent to the minor leagues in order to clear 25-man space for Jimenez's return, but that decision won't be made until he sees how the team's pitching...

The Orioles ideally wanted to work right-hander Bud Norris back into the rotation gradually as he returned from his trip to the disabled list with a right groin strain, and a key caveat of that in the eyes of manager Buck Showalter was getting Norris two starts before the All-Star break. Tuesday's rainout at Nationals Park put a wrench in those plans, postponing Norris' first start in 2 1/2 weeks until the Orioles' return to Camden Yards on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris said he is "a little bummed out" about being placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a right groin strain, but he said he understands that the club is best served when he is healthy. “I want to do my job. I just want to pitch every fifth day and win as many ballgames as I can and stay healthy,” Norris said. “I'm a little bummed out about it, but I've got to take care of it and get back out there as soon as I can.” Norris, who has been the club's most consistent and effective starter this season, left Saturday's game at Yankee Stadium before the sixth inning with tightness in his right groin.

Whether or not the Orioles use two long relievers today will determine when right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is activated from the 15-day disabled list -- and on what day he'll make his first major league start since straining his groin. If right-hander Chris Tillman has a long outing this afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays, Gonzalez will be activated to start Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said during his pregame news conference today. Otherwise, Gonzalez could be reinstated sooner to be available out of the bullpen.

Catcher Matt Wieters said before Tuesday's game against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards that he could have surgery next Tuesday on his right elbow if Dr. James Andrews determines during his appointment Monday that the procedure is necessary. "If we do decide that that's the route to go, then the quicker the better, obviously," Wieters said. "The elbow just wasn't quite discomfort-free. It was something where we were hoping it would be a little further along at this point, and at this point in the year, we want to make sure that we get the best eyes on it and be able to have him look at it and be able to make a decision when he sees it. " Wieters initially visited Andrews on May 7, when the doctor determined he didn't need surgery on a strained right elbow.
