Joe Jordan, the Orioles' director of scouting, recently watched fifth-round draft pick Jacob Arrieta pitch in the Arizona Fall League. "We've seen a good curveball, slider, changeup. We've seen him really pitch," Jordan told me Tuesday night. "He's got a workhorse body, an Andy Benes type of guy. I was really encouraged. It was similar to what I saw his sophomore year at TCU. Delivery-wise, it looks like he's got some things ironed out. He's very confident. Facing wooden bats, he's a different guy. He really attacks with the fastball.

The Arizona Fall League rosters were announced Tuesday, and seven Orioles minor leaguers will represent the organization with the Glendale Desert Dogs this season. Three right-handed pitchers -- Parker Bridwell, Zach Davies and Mychal Givens -- and one left-hander -- Ashur Tolliver -- will head from the Orioles organization to Glendale, as well as three position players -- outfielder Dariel Alvarez, catcher Michael Ohlman and infielder Jason Esposito. Triple-A Norfolk pitching coach Mike Griffin also will join Glendale as the co-pitching coach, and short-season Single-A Aberdeen's Chris Poole will serve as the team's athletic trainer.

Without overpowering stuff, Rick Bauer must make his living by thinking positively and keeping his emotions under control. He has done both well this season.Despite a lofty ERA, Bauer has pitched longer and more successfully than any other starter on a no-name Frederick staff that helped keep the Keys in Single-A Carolina League playoff contention until the final week. He is the team's biggest winner and most used pitcher."I have to work down in the zone, get ahead and think more," Bauer said.

If David Crouthers expects any perks after making the Double-A Eastern League's All-Star team, being chosen its Player of the Week and combining with two relievers on a no-hitter, he'll have to find them in the bullpen. When the Orioles send Crouthers to the Arizona Fall League, they want him pitching in relief to limit his innings and become accustomed to a possible change in roles. Though he could join Triple-A Ottawa's rotation next season, Crouthers is projected as a late-inning specialist.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles had another early arrival at the Fort Lauderdale Stadium complex yesterday. Though only pitchers and catchers are required to be here until tomorrow, third baseman Ryan Minor showed up in the morning and exchanged greetings with teammates before slipping on his uniform and taking the field.The past season had been unforgettable for Minor, but not for all the right reasons. He struggled after making the jump from lower Single-A Delmarva to Double-A Bowie, hitting .250 with 152 strikeouts, and was unimpressive in the Arizona Fall League.

Alex Ramsay grew up just 30 miles away from College Park in Millersville, but the Severna Park star catcher never saw himself playing baseball at Maryland. The No. 2-ranked player in the state, Ramsay always thought he'd attend college in the South. Miami, the 2008 Atlantic Coast Conference tournament champion, was a possibility. Or maybe he would play in the Southeastern Conference for the Auburn Tigers, who finished in first place last season in the conference's Western Division.

The return of injured Orioles Leo Gomez and Jeffrey Hammonds appears within sight. Gomez will start an injury rehabilitation assignment with the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings tomorrow and Hammonds will join the Double-A Bowie Baysox on Saturday in Albany, N.Y.Normally, a rehab assignment could last weeks, but the minor-league season will end in little more than a week. So it appears likely both players will be back in action at the major-league level soon after the roster limit rises to 40 on Sept.

Orioles prospect Henry Urrutia had three singles in the Surprise Saguaros' 7-6 victory over the Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League opener Tuesday.

The 26-year-old outfielder, who batted fifth and started in right field for Surprise, also singled in the third and seventh innings and grounded out to second base in the fifth.

Orioles position players won't have their first full workout until Monday, but manager Buck Showalter is already looking forward to the competition for the final bench spot. "The bullpen and the bench, if we stay healthy, I hope it will be real tough on us," Showalter said. Barring injuries, three of the four bench spots appear to be set or close to it. Cesar Izturis will be the team's primary utility infielder, while Felix Pie or Nolan Reimold will serve as the fourth outfielder.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The competition for jobs in the Orioles outfield appears to be limited to right-field candidates Luis Mercedes, Chito Martinez and Rule V draftee Sherman Obando, but manager Johnny Oates has a caveat.Don't count out Triple-A player Jack Voigt.Voigt, who made a brief visit to the major leagues last year, does not figure to compete for the starting right-field job, but he is the kind of player Oates would like to have around when he needs to spell Brady Anderson in left.Oates doesn't know Voigt that well, but he has been impressed with what he has seen and heard of him during the first few days of camp.

NFL Former Terp Merriman's run with Chargers to end on IR The San Diego Chargers put outside linebacker Shawne Merriman , once one of the most feared players in the NFL, on the injured reserve list with a calf injury and a "minor-injury designation," meaning the former Maryland standout must be released once he's healthy. Technically, the Chargers could re-sign the controversial player. That almost certainly won't happen, though, because general manager A.J. Smith hasn't been a fan of Merriman's celebrity-leaning lifestyle.
