The Orioles were without first- and second-round draft picks this year, but that didn't stop Gary Rajsich , the club's director of scouting, from being excited about his new crop of players, including the three pitchers he introduced to the media and fans Thursday before the game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards. "We're always looking for athletic throwers, guys that throw hard, guys that have good deliveries and good upside. And I think this year we came away with three really good ones," said Rajsich, who was in his third draft with the organization.

BOSTON -- Throughout their two years together, manager Buck Showalter and executive vice president Dan Duquette have juggled the club's 25-man and 40-man rosters with aplomb, making sure players are available at the ready. And that philosophy is hitting hyper-drive this month. The club activated Wilson Betemit from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday and sent infielder Ryan Flaherty to Single-A . Flaherty, who has options remaining, is heading to Delmarva and then Frederick, because the Keys won't make the playoffs.

The Orioles have added two veterans to minor league deals - and both are pitchers they know fairly well. The club has agreed to terms with lefty Mark Hendrickson and right-hander Joel Pineiro, according to industry sources. Pineiro, 34, pitched in five games in the Orioles organization in 2012, three for the Gulf Coast League Orioles and then two at Triple-A Norfolk before having season-ending right labrum surgery in July. The veteran is 104-93 with a 4.41 career ERA in 335 big league games over a 12-season career, including seven seasons with the Seattle Mariners.

With a 5 p.m. deadline looming on Friday to sign their amateur picks, the Orioles are pretty much done their dealing -- especially after agreeing to terms with a highly regarded prep pitcher who had fallen deep into the draft. According to an industry source, the Orioles have agreed to terms with prep left-hander Danny Ayers from Columbus, Ind., their 25th-round pick who was the 759th player selected in June. Ayers, a 6-foot-3, 205-pounder who can throw his fastball consistently in the low-90s, was ranked as the 177th best draftable amateur this year by Baseball America.

Orioles right-hander Scott Feldman will make his first start after eight days rest in Monday's series opener in Arizona. Two off days this week has something to do with it. Feldman was available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's game in San Diego and has thrown extra bullpen sessions to stay sharp. After throwing two quality starts in his first three outings since the Orioles acquired him in a trade with the Cubs on July 2, Feldman has allowed nine earned runs in his past two starts over 9 2/3 innings.

SAN DIEGO - Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel - on the disabled list with a right flexor mass strain - felt discomfort during a throwing session Tuesday, which puts his chances of being ready when he's eligible to return from the DL on Tuesday in doubt. “It's improved slightly, so it's improving, but obviously not as quickly as we want,” Hammel said Wednesday. “It was a slight improvement, but it was disappointing that it didn't heal after a week of not throwing.” Hammel, who said he threw from about 80-90 feet Tuesday, said he will try to throw again Friday.

Frederick infielder Nick Delmonico, who was rated by Baseball America before the season as the organization's No. 4 prospect, was struck in the helmet with a pitch Wednesday. He left the game and was held out of Thursday's contest with the Salem Red Sox for precautionary reasons. The Orioles do not believe the 21-year-old Delmonico has a concussion. Delmonico was hitting .254 with a .361 on-base percentage and 13 homers in 56 games for the Keys. Delmonico was beaned by one of the Red Sox top prospects, lefty Henry Owens, who along with two other Salem pitchers, threw a nine-inning no-hitter against the Keys on Wednesday.

Orioles reliever Matt Lindstrom, despite his hopes, will not be activated today. Manager Buck Showalter said Lindstrom, assuming he checks out OK with the medical staff, will be activated Wednesday. The assumption was that lefty Dana Eveland would be put on paternity leave, giving the Orioles at least three days to juggle their roster when activating Lindstrom. But Eveland's son, Asher Perry, was born Saturday night. So Eveland went home to be with his wife and will be back Tuesday night.
