Lefty Dontrelle Willis, who signed a minor league deal with the Orioles late in the spring, left a game for Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday afternoon after throwing his ninth pitch in relief. Willis told the Virginian-Pilot that he had been dealing with pain since spring training and felt a knot in his forearm from the beginning of his outing Wednesday. “I tweaked my forearm,” Willis told the newspaper. “I've worked hard. Maybe it's overuse. " Given the fact he is trying to become a reliever and make a new team, Willis called the setback “frustrating, especially in the new position I'm in.” Willis was examined by the club's trainer, and the injury does not seem to be too serious.

PHOENIX - Orioles manager Buck Showalter often shuns the spotlight, so when the Arizona Diamondbacks showed a video tribute to Showalter - who was their first manager and played a large role in the expansion club's growth - he hesitated before tipping his cap as fans applauded. Monday was Showalter's first game back in Arizona since his departure from the Diamondbacks after the 2000 season. Showalter was hired in two years before Arizona began play and managed the Diamondbacks for three seasons.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel hopes to resume throwing sometime next week after receiving a cortisone injection in his right forearm Friday. And while he will remain on the disabled list indefinitely, Hammel is confident he will be able to help the club down the stretch. Hammel, who hasn't thrown since his last start July 28, received the injection after renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews reviewed his MRI and concurred with the recommendation of Orioles team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- Still waiting to enjoy a healthy stretch this spring training, Orioles first baseman Kevin Millar said he might not return to the lineup until the end of the week because of a strained flexor muscle in his right forearm. Millar, who bruised his left instep last week after fouling a ball off his foot, is wearing a patch on his forearm that releases medication into his system. The injury occurred last week while Millar took his final swing in batting practice in Jupiter.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Little more than a month after undergoing ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow, Scott Erickson is considered ahead of schedule by the Orioles' medical staff. Erickson has shed the splint placed on the elbow after Aug. 8 "Tommy John surgery" and, after visiting Los Angeles orthopedic Dr. Lewis Yocum Friday, has been given reason to believe he may be able to toss next spring training. Noticeably lighter and encouraged by his progress, Erickson will accompany the Orioles for the balance of their schedule.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Baltimore Orioles continued their descent into baseball purgatory last night, losing a close one to the Kansas City Royals and losing one of their most effective pitchers in the process.Reliever Mark Williamson was hit on the right forearm by a line drive in the seventh inning of the Orioles' 3-2, extra-inning loss at Royals Stadium. X-rays were negative, but he left the field in obvious pain and figures to be sidelined for at least the next several days.It was just another in a series of setbacks for the Orioles, who lost their third straight game on a 10th-inning RBI single by Royals outfielder Brian McRae that sent reliever Todd Frohwirth to his first defeat of 1991.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Once appearing to be settled, the Orioles' rotation won't leave South Florida completely intact. A crack has developed at the end, though there's no hurry to fill it. Fifth starter Calvin Maduro was placed on the disabled list yesterday with a strained muscle in his right forearm. The move is retroactive to Friday, making him eligible to be activated April 6. Maduro couldn't make yesterday's scheduled start against the St. Louis Cardinals because of soreness in his upper forearm.

Dylan Bundy is expected to see team orthopedist John Wilckens on Tuesday after experiencing more discomfort in his right forearm following a throwing session of 120 feet Monday in Sarasota. A team source said it is expected that Bundy will ask to see Dr. James Andrews, who administered the platelet-rich-plasma injection in the prized prospect's arm in late April. It's premature to panic. But if you want to worry some, go right ahead. No one's judging you. Because this isn't good news.

The All-Star Game brings more than just a midseason shot of excitement to Major League Baseball. It provides much-needed rest for the players, a four-day respite in a 162-game season that often produces fatigue and injury. The players who most need rest are the starting pitchers, who, paradoxically, get the most rest during the season, playing only every fifth day. Yet, midseason pitching swoons, like the Oriole starters have recently experienced, are not uncommon. Perhaps the best-known case of pitching fatigue to occur around the All-Star break was that of Bob Feller, the Cleveland fireballer who at age 17 struck out 17 batters in his fifth major-league start.

The mystery of what is going on inside Stephen Strasburg's prized right arm, a question that has left the phenom's season in limbo and the Washington Nationals' brain trust in a state of angst, will endure for at least another 72 hours. Strasburg's absence from a major league mound, meantime, will last at least another two weeks. Thirteen days after coming off the disabled list following a bout of shoulder stiffness, Strasburg, 22, went right back on it Monday — this time with a forearm/elbow injury suffered Saturday night in Philadelphia.

Orioles veteran right-hander Kevin Millwood will return from the disabled list to start Thursday's game against the Minnesota Twins, forcing Chris Tillman out of the rotation and back to Triple-A Norfolk. Before Tuesday's game, the club announced the demotion of Tillman, who is 1-4 with a 7.92 ERA in six starts. The Orioles will activate Millwood on Wednesday. "We figured Tillman is not going to pitch again for five days, so why not do it now and get him on his way," interim manager Juan Samuel said.

Rather than becoming a solution to the Orioles' pitching crisis, Hayden Penn continues to be a health issue. Viewing the decision as a precautionary measure, the Orioles placed Penn on the seven-day minor league disabled list yesterday and scratched him from last night's start at Triple-A Norfolk because of soreness in his right forearm. "We backdated it, and we still think he could pitch five days from now," said Dave Stockstill, director of minor league operations. Team orthopedist Dr. Andrew Cosgarea most likely will examine Penn this weekend in Baltimore to make sure the problem isn't more serious.
