SARASOTA, Fla. -- Former Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Ted Higuera, one of the best pitchers in the American League before tearing his rotator cuff prior to the 1991 season, will join the Orioles in St. Petersburg Friday. Higuera, a 36-year-old free agent, will audition for manager Phil Regan in an effort to earn a contract with the Orioles."His agent says he's thrown really well this winter," Regan said. "He wanted to come in and throw once. I asked him if he would mind staying and throwing two or three times for us, so we could get a good look at him."

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Former 20-game winner Ted Higuera intrigued the Orioles' coaching staff Saturday by throwing well in a tryout. But manager Phil Regan expressed caution; before making any judgments, he wanted to see how the left-hander rebounded for his second workout.Well, Higuera threw again yesterday -- and he was even better, displaying a live fastball, breaking pitches of two different speeds, and a changeup. The Orioles are very interested.After the 15-minute bullpen session, Regan and assistant general manager Frank Robinson both spoke to Higuera about remaining in the Orioles' training camp.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Former Milwaukee Brewers ace Ted Higuera was serious about his tryout with the Orioles yesterday -- there was no doubt about that. He paid his way to get here from Mexico and arrived trim and eager, ready to partake in all the mindless drills, even shagging fly balls.All that enthusiasm, Orioles pitching coach Mike Flanagan was saying, doesn't mean anything if you can't pitch anymore. But if you can pitch and still have that vigor, that's another story.Higuera looks as if he still can pitch: The left-hander surprised the Orioles with his control and his sharp breaking stuff in a 15-minute workout.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The options available to Major League Baseball for dealing with its Orioles problem are dwindling as Opening Day nears, according to a highly placed baseball executive.Orioles owner Peter Angelos is refusing to field a team of replacements if the players strike continues into the regular season. Two options that have been discussed by baseball officials are creating a replacement team that would play home games at an undetermined site -- not in Baltimore -- or creating a replacement team that would assume the Orioles' place on the schedule and play only road games.
