While introducing Dave Wallace and Dom Chiti to Camden Yards this offseason, Orioles manager Buck Showalter pointed out the bronze statues of the team's six Hall of Famers beyond the left-center-field fence. “You know, if you two guys figure out this pitching here,” Showalter joked, “there will probably be a statue out there of you two guys.” And after the strides the pitching staff has made under Wallace, the pitching coach, and Chiti, the bullpen coach, in their first year working with the Orioles, Showalter recently joked that he's going to have to make good on his promise and give the duo miniature statues of themselves.

The first official workout of this week's Orioles minicamp won't be until Tuesday morning, but several players trickled in on Monday to get a head start. Among the dozen players who are here and participated in a workout Monday that included light throwing, running and lifting were Tommy Hunter, Dylan Bundy, Kevin Gausman and Mike Wright. Outfielder Henry Urrutia was also here and took fly balls in center field. Bundy continued his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery, throwing from about 60 feet with minor league medical coordinator Dave Walker.

Now that the Orioles have clinched the American League East title, the regular season is all over but the roster shuffling. The Orioles headed into Wednesday night trailing the Los Angeles Angels by three games for the top seed in the AL while leading the Detroit Tigers by seven games for the third seed. It puts the Orioles into a bit of a baseball limbo: Do they try to catch the Angels and not give their regulars as much rest over the next 11 games, or do they forget about trying to get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, be happy with the No. 2 seed and try to spell their regulars?

A day after Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette mentioned Cord Phelps as an option for the starting second base job, the Orioles outrighted the 25-year-old to Triple-A Norfolk after he cleared waivers. Duquette said once the club acquired Jemile Weeks in the Jim Johnson trade last week, it had a reasonable chance of slipping Phelps through waivers. The Orioles currently have 37 players on the 40-man roster, but will likely add reliever Ryan Webb today once he passes his physical.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, on the disabled list with a left oblique strain, did some light exercises - including work with a resistance band -- before this afternoon's game with strength coach Joe Hogarty. Manager Buck Showalter is pleased with his quick progress. “He's doing some things a little earlier that some guys do with that injury,” Showalter said. “That's kind of good to see. He's been in the pool doing some movement.” Left-hander Johan Santana's first extended spring training outing scheduled for today in Sarasota, Fla., was rained out. His two-inning outing has now been rescheduled for Monday, which will allow Showalter to attend because the team will be off and already in Tampa for a series against the Rays.

New Orioles right-hander Liam Hendriks doesn't have very many fond memories of Baltimore. The 24-year-old Australian started for the Minnesota Twins in the Orioles' home opener last season and saw an early three-run lead disappear quickly. He lasted just 4 2/3 innings and watched from the dugout as Chris Davis hit a grand-slam to give the Orioles a 9-5 win. That probably still doesn't compare to the beginning of Hendriks' 2012 season in Baltimore. He had pitched well in the spring, going 3-1 with a 2.84 ERA to earn a rotation spot.

BOSTON - Since his last start a week ago, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez has made several visits to the team's video room, trying to figure out why he's struggled in his first three starts as an Oriole. A day after allowing five runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays last Sunday, Jimenez broke down video of his performance with Orioles pitching coach Dave Wallace and bullpen coach Dom Chiti. Leading up to his start tonight against the Boston Red Sox, they've continued to examine his delivery.

With his teammates killing time inside the clubhouse during a 1-hour, 38-minute rain delay Wednesday night, Orioles closer Zach Britton remained in the bullpen, waiting out the weather for his opportunity to close out a 6-4 win over the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards. Britton had just started warming up in the bottom of the eighth when the game was delayed with the Orioles needing just three outs for the victory. Instead of staying dry -- and cool -- inside the Orioles clubhouse, Britton remained in the bullpen beyond the left-center field fence with bullpen coach Dom Chiti and bullpen catcher Jett Ruiz.

With three consecutive wins against the Texas Rangers, including Wednesday's come-from-behind, rain-soaked 6-4 victory, an obvious question has arisen. Manny Machado who? OK, maybe it's not really a burning sentiment at this point. But since the Orioles' Platinum Glove third baseman began serving his five-game suspension Monday -- leaving the Orioles roster short one player -- they haven't lost. “It's impressive, but it doesn't surprise me,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of his club's 3-0 record with 24 players.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Evan Meek's journey from Rule 5 pick, to All-Star reliever, to nonroster spring training invitee has taken its share of wild twists and turns, but the Orioles hope that they've snagged the 30-year-old at just the right time. "A lot of this game is timing, and a lot of this game is the right fit," Meek said. "The comeback trail is a tough one. It was a long time and a tough road back just to get back to the point where I am now. " Earlier this month, the comeback trail led him to Baltimore, where he had a tryout in front of new pitching coach Dave Wallace and new bullpen coach Dom Chiti during the weekend of FanFest, a session that led to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league camp.

The countdown to spring training continues and, with each passing day, it appears less and less likely that the Orioles are going to make a dynamic acquisition to upgrade their pitching staff or add some real on-base potential to their power-packed lineup. There still are some suitable players out there, and the franchise doesn't seem to lack the financial wherewithall to do what's necessary to build on back-to-back winning seasons, but the clock keeps ticking and the fans keep wondering if all they rate from this ownership are minor league hand-me-downs and small-market excuses.
