DALLAS - The Orioles filled the last opening on their 40-man roster yesterday while using the Rule 5 draft for their first acquisition of the winter meetings. Jay Gibbons, a left-handed-hitting first baseman in the Toronto Blue Jays' organization, was chosen from Double-A Tennessee in the major-league phase of the draft. He must remain with the Orioles for the entire 2001 season or be offered back to the Blue Jays for $25,000. Gibbons, 23, has batted over .300 in each of his three professional seasons, beginning at Rookie-level Medicine Hat, when he hit .397 with 19 homers and 98 RBIs in 73 games.

BOWIE -- As a free-agent outfielder playing in Venezuela last winter, Adam Loewen hoped to show enough to earn a chance in spring training. And then he realized that his best shot to get back to the major leagues might be what originally got him there: his prized left arm. Now with the Reading Fightin Phils, the Philadelphia Phillies' Double-A affiliate, Loewen came with his team to Double-A Bowie this week. "It's like I'm starting over every five years at something different," Loewen said Tuesday.

BOWIE -- The Orioles made a surprise move by sending right-hander Bud Norris to Double-A Bowie so he could get work in over the All-Star break. Because he had made just one start since coming off the disabled list with a right groin strain, the organization wanted to get Norris back into a midseason rhythm for the second half. But pitching under the summer sun in an 11:05 a.m. game against the Richmond Flying Squirrels in front of a sparse crowd at Prince George's Stadium on Monday was a challenge.

Last week's deal between the Chicago Cubs and Oakland Athletics, which sent pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for a prospect package that included top 10 prospect Addison Russell, kicked off baseball's trade season in spectacular fashion. This week, we'll go through the Orioles system level by level and highlight players of value who could have new homes by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline if the Orioles want to make a move.   Like the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk, the Orioles Double-A affiliate in Bowie has a handful of valuable players amid a lineup of veteran minor leaguers and organizational filler.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday that the organization is considering re-assigning top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy to Double-A Bowie following his next rehabilitation start for short-season Single-A Aberdeen on Friday. Duquette said the Orioles still plan to re-evaluate Bundy following his start for Aberdeen on Friday, which will be a year to the day he had Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery. “We were going to see how he does, and then see if we wanted to send him to Bowie, depending on how he does,” Duquette said.

Miguel Gonzalez threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings for Double-A Bowie against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on Wednesday night in an injury rehabilitation start as the right-hander recovers from a strained right oblique. Gonzalez, who is eligible to return to the Orioles from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, allowed four hits and struck out five batters on 70 pitches (45 strikes). He was pulled after striking out the leadoff batter in the fifth inning. A wild pitch and a walk helped the Fisher Cats load the bases with two outs in the second, but Gonzalez induced a groundout to escape the inning unscathed.

Outfielder Nolan Reimold , playing in his first minor league rehab game since going on the disabled list in spring training , went 1-for-3 for Double-A Bowie on Tuesday night. In his second at-bat, Reimold hit a line-drive single to left field. He also had a flyout to left field and a strikeout. Reimold also played six innings in left field. Reimold, 30, has played in just 56 major league games over the past two seasons after multiple neck fusion surgeries. Reimold played in 14 games this spring, hitting .263/.378/.342 with one homer and five RBIs.

BOWIE -- Sometimes, numbers can deceive. Just ask Double-A Bowie catcher Michael Ohlman, whose .211 batting average looks like a disappointing letdown from a .313 average and Carolina League Player of the Year honors at High-A Frederick last season. But Ohlman, 23, was hitting just .181 a month ago, and the Orioles' 11th-round pick in 2009 has found his footing since then -- both at the plate and behind it. He had a six-game winning streak snapped after going 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against Richmond at Prince George's Stadium.

Jonathan Schoop isn't the only member of his family garnering attention in the Orioles system. His older brother, Sharlon, is batting .306 with a pair of home runs for Double-A Bowie. Schoop, 27, joined the Orioles organization last offseason after seven minor league seasons with the San Francisco Giants and one with the Kansas City Royals farm system. While he appears to have topped out at Double-A, the infielder is finding his stroke in Bowie's hot lineup. He's batting .317 with a home run and five RBIs in his past 10 games, and has an .821 OPS in 24 games for the Baysox.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis had been taking batting practice indoors for the past two days, but until Friday's game against the Houston Astros, he couldn't get a true feel for how well he has recovered from a strained left oblique muscle. During his first outdoor batting practice session, Davis littered the Camden Yards seats with home run balls, hitting 15 balls out in his final four rounds. "I felt great,” Davis said. “I felt really good the last three days. That's when we started doing a lot of stuff.
