There have been more rumors floating concerning free agent pitcher Ervin Santana and the Orioles. The best I can glean is that the Orioles maintain interest in the veteran right-hander and wouldn't blink at all about surrendering their third-round draft pick for him. But there hasn't been any real dialogue in the past couple days, a source said Wednesday night. The problem is that Santana has played the waiting game all offseason and his demands have not dropped significantly.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Ervin Santana sweepstakes have come to a conclusion. After being courted heavily by the Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays recently, Santana has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Atlanta Braves, the club announced Wednesday. The deal is reportedly worth $14.1 million, the amount of the qualifying offer he rejected from the Kansas City Royals in the offseason. The longer Santana remained unsigned this week -- especially after the Orioles and Blue Jays emerged as frontrunners over the weekend -- it appeared that the 31-year-old would eventually go to the Braves, who suddenly need rotation help after injuries to starters Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy.

SARASOTA, FLA. - The race for free-agent right-hander Ervin Santana appears to be nearing an end, and the Orioles remain in the fold for the top free-agent starting pitcher still available. The Orioles are still in contact with Santana's representation. The sides conversed as recently as late Tuesday afternoon, according to an industry source. Santana is expected to select a team within the next day or two, according to the source. With less than three weeks before Opening Day, Santana needs to get into a camp to get ready for the season.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The ink has only just dried on the Orioles' monumental four-year deal with starter Ubaldo Jimenez, but the club remains interested in acquiring at least one other big-ticket free agent. The Orioles have intensified their pursuit of free-agent designated hitter Kendrys Morales and right-handed starter Ervin Santana, according to industry sources. The club has been linked to both players throughout the offseason, but did not appear to be in serious negotiations recently as Jimenez signed a four-year, $50 million deal, the largest and longest contract given to a free-agent pitcher in franchise history.

Anaheim, Calif. -- The Orioles walked a dangerous line all night, leaving 14 runners on, including eight in scoring position. They finally paid for it in the 10th inning when Adam Kennedy's three-run homer off Julio Manon sent the Orioles to a 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels last night before 43,658 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Nick Markakis jogged a few strides toward the wall before realizing there was no hope of another miraculous catch. So he stopped and watched Mike Napoli's drive disappear into the right-center-field seats. A batter earlier, Markakis made a daring dive over the wall in right field, his arm seemingly extending into the second row to take away a two-run home run from Erick Aybar. But he was powerless to do anything else to save starting pitcher Steve Trachsel last night.

SARASOTA, FLA. - If you want another indication of how the landscape has changed over the past month at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, consider the Orioles' Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox on Saturday afternoon. It was just another exhibition game, or so it seemed. The Orioles play 30 of them and - for the most part - they don't generate a whole lot of buzz, unless a marquee player gets hurt or something really strange makes its way onto the SportsCenter rail. Neither of those things happened on Saturday, but it was an afternoon on high alert after news started to trickle out that free-agent pitcher Ervin Santana had reduced his contract demands and was about to choose his new team from a very short list that included the Orioles.

SARASOTA, FLA. -- With free agent right-hander Ervin Santana reportedly lowering his demands to a one-year contract, the Orioles are certainly interested. And on Saturday afternoon Orioles manager Buck Showalter admitted that he had been updated on the club's involvement with Santana by executive vice president Dan Duquette. But Showalter wouldn't give the media any more information. “I have a sense, yeah,” Showalter said. “I think everybody is talking about him to some extent.” When asked if he and Duquette had talked Saturday specifically about Santana, Showalter smiled and said, “You are trying to make me lie?

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles are shelving right-hander Edgmer Escalona for the next three weeks because of inflammation in his right shoulder. The 27-year-old Escalona's only spring training appearance was an unimpressive one. He allowed five runs - all earned - on four hits over one innings of work in Saturday's Grapefruit League home opener against the Blue Jays. So far this spring the Orioles have avoided any significant injuries, but this one definitely hurts Escalona's chances of making the major league roster on Opening Day. He was still somewhat of a dark horse to make the club, but now Escalona likely won't be ready to return before the final week of exhibition games.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles might not be done upgrading their starting rotation. Days after signing free-agent starter Ubaldo Jimenez, the Orioles are still interested in another top free-agent starter - right-hander Ervin Santana. According to an industry source, the Orioles have had dialogue with Santana's representatives as recently as Thursday. This week, the Orioles signed Jimenez to a four-year, $50-million deal, which is the longest and largest contract for a free-agent pitcher in franchise history.

SARASOTA, Fla. - After sitting idle through the offseason, the Orioles finally struck with a long-awaited impact signing on Monday, just days after settling into spring training. The club agreed to terms with free-agent Ubaldo Jimenez - one of the top starting pitchers remaining on the market - to a four-year deal worth a guaranteed $48 million, according to a club source. For an Orioles team that lacked headline free-agent signings in recent years, this deal - which is pending a club physical - is monumental and historic.

One of the great things about my profession and social media -- Twitter, in particular -- is the immediacy with which writers can interact with readers. I'll be stepping away from Twitter for a little bit before I head down to Florida in a few weeks for spring training. So I decided last night to invite readers to ask me some Orioles questions, and I'd answer a chunk of them before I slip away temporarily. Here's a sampling of the questions I received and my answers (in most cases I expounded beyond the 140 characters permitted on Twitter)
