After giving up a home run and a single to the first two batters in the eighth inning, right-hander Francisco Rodriguez exited Friday's loss to the Colorado Rockies with a strained right groin. He said after the game the soreness bothered him the past week, but it was worse against the Rockies. Similar soreness bothered Rodriguez in 2011, but he plans to keep pitching after treatment Saturday. Manager Buck Showalter said he thinks Rodriguez wanted to catch the soreness early before it got worse.

MILWAUKEE -- Catcher Nick Hundley isn't some nervous rookie with nubs for fingernails and a stomach that does somersaults when there's a pressure situation before him. Hundley, 30, has been in the major leagues for parts of seven seasons, though he had only played for the San Diego Padres until Monday, when he started behind the plate for the Orioles in their thrilling 7-6 comeback victory in 10 innings over the Milwaukee Brewers. With a wry smile after the game, Hundley admitted that in the first inning he had a flash of that rookie angst when he crouched and began receiving pitches from Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman.

The Orioles head into Christmas Week without a closer, but they are still in the mix for free-agent right-hander Fernando Rodney. According to an industry source, the Orioles are one of four teams who have shown “significant interest” in the 36-year-old, who saved 85 of 95 opportunities for the Tampa Bay Rays in the past two years. The Orioles had pursued Rodney earlier this offseason, but ultimately turned their attention to Grant Balfour, who agreed to a two-year, $15 million deal with the team last week before the Orioles backed out citing medical concerns after reviewing Balfour's physical.

The 31-year-old Rodriguez, formerly one of the top closers in the game with the Los Angeles Angels, was 1-1 with 10 saves and a 1.09 ERA for the Brewers.

PHOENIX - While Orioles manager Buck Showalter praised veteran reliever Francisco Rodriguez for his scoreless eighth inning in the Orioles' 4-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night , he showed no signs of giving K-Rod a save opportunity over struggling closer Jim Johnson. Johnson blew his second straight save opportunity Tuesday and his eighth this season. Rodriguez has put together four straight scoreless outings, allowing just one hit over four innings and striking out eight over that span.

Newly acquired Orioles pitcher Francisco Rodriguez is expected to arrive in Kansas City today and be added to the team's 25-man roster. The Orioles have already transferred Nolan Reimold to the 60-day DL to get 40-man roster space, but after Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Royals, manager Buck Showalter said he was considering two corresponding 25-man roster moves to add Rodriguez. I'm still thinking it will be right-hander Jairo Asencio. That would leave left-hander T.J. McFarland as the sole long-relief pitcher, which is fine.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Reliever Francisco Rodriguez joined the Orioles before Wednesday's game in Kansas City still a little surprised he was suddenly wearing a Baltimore uniform after having been acquired in a trade. Trade rumors had him linked to a lot of teams, and “Baltimore was not one of them, so it was pretty much the same thing as when I was traded from the Mets” to the Brewers in 2011, Rodriguez said from his corner locker in the clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium. “So it was a shock, but at the same time happy.” The 31-year-old right-hander, acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for infield prospect Nick Delmonico, now finds himself with a contender.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Orioles are optioning designated hitter Danny Valencia to Triple-A Norfolk to make 25-man roster space for trade acquisition Francisco Rodriguez. With the Orioles scheduled to face right-handed starters over the next four days - Ervin Santana and Jeremy Guthrie here in Kansas City and Boston's Ryan Dempster and Brandon Workman on Friday and Saturday, respectively - the club doesn't need a right-handed designated hitter in the short term. That also signals more playing time for left-handed hitting rookie Henry Urrutia, who will make his third big-league start tonight against the Royals and is 4-for-12 so far. The club was also considering designating right-hander Jairo Asencio for assignment as the corresponding move to make room for Rodriguez, but the Orioles feared losing him on waivers.

The Cubs clearly aren't blown away by any of the center fielders on the free agent market, preferring to explore trades. One name to file away is Fernando Perez . Speedy, bright and the holder of a .375 minor league on-base percentage, the Rays switch hitter, 27 in April, would be an interesting gamble complicated because he is recovering from shoulder surgery. Scott Podsednik's ability to lead off keeps him in consideration alongside Marlon Byrd and Rick Ankiel . … As it has for Matt Holliday , the market has remained slow for Jason Bay . He has been sitting on a four-year, $64 million offer from the Mets - who must wonder if he wants to play there - and could be hoping the Red Sox will make an aggressive play to keep him. The Red Sox did not have to pay luxury tax last season but would be beyond the threshold if they added Bay to an outfield already including Mike Cameron , J.D. Drew , Jacoby Ellsbury and Jeremy Hermida . … Jermaine Dye is drawing interest from the Yankees after their acquisition of Javier Vazquez . He had been considered as a first base option in Atlanta before the Braves shifted to Troy Glaus . … The Yankees plan to have Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain compete for the fifth starter's spot in spring training, with the loser moving to the bullpen or even to Triple A. They're trying to deal Chad Gaudin and Sergio Mitre . … Fernando...
