A few days ago, I wrote about the goings-on in Sarasota and how some players are already working out with Double-A Bowie manager Gary Kendall. There will be more to come once minor league minicamp opens at the Twin Lakes Complex in less than two weeks. Now we have a list of minor leaguers who will be attending the organization's minicamp, which is slated to begin Feb. 18. It will include some of team's top draft picks in last season's draft: Second-rounder Branden Kline, third-rounder Adrian Marin and fourth-rounder Christian Walker.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Chris Davis returned to the baseball field Friday, but it was a field far from the one the Orioles played on in Toronto. Davis was over a thousand miles away in steamy Sarasota, playing Instructional League baseball as he tries to remain in shape during his 25-game suspension for a positive amphetamine test. In his first game since reporting to the Orioles' Sarasota complex on Tuesday, Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk against a pair of 18-year-old Tampa Bay Rays prospects in a game that ended in a 9-inning, 3-3 tie. Davis - who will miss at least the first eight games the Orioles play in the postseason, should they advance that far - left Friday's game after three innings.

BOWIE -- Left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez is one of the Orioles' best prospects, so when he twisted and sprained his knee while lifting weights in late April, Double-A Bowie manager Gary Kendall knew to be cautious. Rodriguez, 21, went more than a month between starts, but Kendall thinks it was well worth the wait. Though Rodriguez may have been able to pitch sooner, the manager didn't want soreness to influence his mechanics, potentially causing other injuries. “You don't want to take any chances, especially so young in his career,” Kendall said about the Orioles' No. 3 prospect, according to Baseball America.

BOWIE -- Sometimes, numbers can deceive. Just ask Double-A Bowie catcher Michael Ohlman, whose .211 batting average looks like a disappointing letdown from a .313 average and Carolina League Player of the Year honors at High-A Frederick last season. But Ohlman, 23, was hitting just .181 a month ago, and the Orioles' 11th-round pick in 2009 has found his footing since then -- both at the plate and behind it. He had a six-game winning streak snapped after going 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against Richmond at Prince George's Stadium.

Xavier Avery is not satisfied. Since being taken in the second round by the Orioles in 2008, the 23-year-old outfielder has risen through the minor league system and consistently found himself listed among the organization's best prospects. Last season, he played 32 games in three stints with the big league club and spent the rest of the year with Triple-A Norfolk. But after just a brief look this spring, Avery finds himself at Double-A Bowie, a victim of improved outfield depth in the organization, as he battles for another shot to impress the Orioles.

Monday morning at Aberdeen's Ripken Stadium, a large contingent of this season's IronBirds squad milled about the complex's club area, tossing baseballs barehanded back-and-forth to each other, chatting loudly, and generally looking they were not nervous about their upcoming season-opener, in which they host the Hudson Valley Renegades at 7:35 p.m. on Friday night. Playing their 10th season in the 14-team Class A Short Season New York-Penn League, the IronBirds have 75 games in front of them.

BOWIE - On his first off day as an Orioles minor leaguer, Double-A Bowie outfielder Henry Urrutia took a trip to Baltimore, where he got a tour of Camden Yards - the place he hopes his uphill and divot-filled baseball journey reaches its pinnacle. Thursday, Urrutia checked out the Orioles clubhouse, strolled up the steps of the home dugout and walked onto the field, where he took a 360-degree look around him and soaked in what seemed impossible growing up in Cuba. It was a memorable trip for the 26-year-old Urrutia - because it was the truest sign yet that his dream of playing in the big leagues was in reach.

I wanted to pass along reliever Jim Hoey's thoughts on a minor league manager and pitching coach: "The manager at Delmarva, Gary Kendall, is amazing at how he's a motivational speaker and a coach. ... And you get to Double-A and Scott McGregor is an awesome pitching coach. More of a laid-back type who lets you do your thing." Mo Hill, a coach at Double-A, said the affiliates are giving the same instruction at each level that's found at the major league level. "It all starts in spring training, the fundamental part of it, making sure we're all on the same page with the major leagues, just in case there's a player to be moved up."
