Henry Urrutia, the Cuban defector who joined the Orioles earlier this month eight months after he signed, will play in his first game at Ed Smith Stadium in today's exhibition against the State College of Florida. Urrutia will start in right field and hit sixth in the batting order.   Urrutia, who signed a $778,500 signing bonus in July, hasn't played in two seasons. He was suspended for the entire 2011 season in Cuba after a failed defection, so the Orioles are pacing him slowly to get him readjusted to the game while getting him ready for the season.

SARASOTA, FLA. -- Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez left Friday's home Grapefruit League game against the Philadelphia Phillies just three batters into his outing after suffering a a bruised left tibia when he was hit by a sharp comebacker in the top of the fifth inning. Gonzalez left the Ed Smith Stadium complex to get precautionary X-rays, but the club believes he will be fine. “It looked liked it hit him in a pretty meaty spot, I would say, so we'll see what happens as the trainers and doctors look at him, but hopefully it's nothing serious,” said Orioles bench coach John Russell, who served as manager for part of Friday's game.

Brace yourself, Baltimore. Tomorrow you get your first taste of downtown ballpark traffic.Not only is the Orioles' 3:05 p.m. exhibition game against the New York Mets a trial run for Oriole Park at Camden Yards, but it's also a test to see how the downtown area will handle Monday's Opening Day traffic.The Orioles have deliberately sold only 32,000 tickets for tomorrow's game -- two-thirds of the stadium's 48,000-seat capacity -- to give themselves and those responsible for controlling traffic a little breathing room.

Here's a proposal for consideration and debate: Next year, the Baltimore Orioles should play an exhibition game against the Cuban National Team in Havana. Why? Follow my thoughts for a moment.I visited Havana recently at the invitation of an organization called the Center for International Policy. The delegation I joined was relatively small and included a former U.S. senator, a retired general, two former U.S. diplomats and two businessmen with ties to Latin America and the Caribbean.Each had his or her own reasons for joining this trip.

With Seth Allen on crutches (broken foot), Maryland coach Mark Turgeon has said that freshman point guard Roddy Peters must step in and “play through his mistakes.” We saw that Sunday from the promising freshman during Maryland's 84-39 exhibition victory over a Catholic team that was smaller than the Terps at every position. Peters (7 points on 2-for-5 shooting from the floor, 2 assists, 2 turnovers) showed off his speed and his unselfish nature. He occasionally drove the ball too far under the basket and found himself trapped.

Carmelo Anthony fully expects the memories to envelop him as he trots onto the court at Baltimore Arena. The long days dribbling on the asphalt beside West Baltimore's Murphy Homes projects. The early games at Robert C. Marshall Recreation Center, when he was just a skinny, goofy kid, hoping he might become good enough to earn a college scholarship. It all happened, what, 10 minutes from the court where Anthony will suit up for the New York Knicks on Thursday night? Though his professional allegiance lies with the Big Apple, Anthony will be straight Charm City when he dons an NBA uniform for the first time in his hometown.

If Tuesday night's Baltimore Hockey Classic, which pitted the Washington Capitals against the Boston Bruins, was any indication, Baltimore had better things to do than watch a live NHL preseason game. There were thousands of empty seats inside Baltimore Arena, though many of the others were filled with red-clad Capitals fans and some wearing the jerseys of past Capitals, such as Peter Bondra, Olaf Kolzig and Jaromir Jagr. There were a number of black and gold Bruins jerseys inside the half-filled arena, too. The puck-lovers who did show up booed as loud as they collectively could when the Bruins were introduced as the defending Eastern Conference champions.

All athletes dream of reaching the big leagues, of playing under the lights in front of thousands of screaming fans. Skyy Anderson, 23, lived that dream. But then it was all taken from her. After a four-year career at Maryland, Anderson was offered a chance to try out for the Philadelphia Independence. But after leaving school and leaving everything behind to pursue that opportunity, the Women's Professional Soccer league collapsed, leaving Anderson with nowhere to go. "I was like, 'I took this year off and now I'm just sitting at home,'" Anderson said.

Now that the Ravens and other NFL teams have their first exhibition games under their belts, it's time to seriously talk about shortening the preseason. After the first quarter of last night's game, did you have any idea who some of these guys were? It's true that some rookies (i.e. Joe Flacco) need as many repetitions as possible in exhibition games. But judging by his performance Thursday night, there won't be enough exhibition games on the schedule to get Flacco ready. So let's cut one exhibition game and add it to the regular season.

Ravens rookie Asa Jackson celebrated with an impromptu dance, blissfully unaware that his electrifying punt return for a touchdown had been nullified by a holding penalty on Nigel Carr. His elation was short-lived. After crisscrossing the field and scooting 85 yards into the end zone during the third quarter of the Ravens' 27-12 loss to the Detroit Lions on Friday night at M&T Bank Stadium, Jackson had to settle for a gain of 40 yards. "I got into the end zone, and I got to do my celebration," the cornerback said.
