The expectation is that some time Saturday it'll become official that Opening Day starter Jake Arrieta has been sent to Triple-A Norfolk. The numbers show why. He is 2-8 with a 6.32 ERA. He leads the majors in losses. He's dropped his last six decisions in a span of seven starts. He is 1-5 with a 7.85 ERA in seven home starts. He allowed career highs in hits (11) and runs (9) in Friday's 9-6 loss, and he pitched just four innings. After the game, Arrieta admitted to reporters that he is lost, and is more frustrated than he has ever been.

CHICAGO - The Orioles are making their first trip to Wrigley Field since June 2008 for the three-game series against the Cubs that begins Friday afternoon. Right-hander Jake Arrieta, who has flourished with the Cubs, will face his former team for the first time. Right-hander Kevin Gausman pitches for the Orioles. Arrieta, sent to the Cubs in July 2013, is 6-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 starts this season. He's allowed two runs or fewer in four of his past five starts. Gausman has won three of his past four starts, including a six-inning, two-hit, one-run outing in Cleveland on Sunday.

TORONTO -- Orioles Opening Day starter Jake Arrieta has returned to Baltimore and is expected to be recalled when the team returns home from its six-game road trip and opens a seven-game homestand Thursday against the Yankees. Arrieta has been working out with Double-A Bowie the past two days after starting Triple-A Norfolk's season finale. Arrieta was optioned to Norfolk on July 5 after going 3-9 with a 6.13 ERA in 18 starts for the Orioles. He has pitched well in Triple-A.

CHICAGO -  Former Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta said it was different pitching against his old team Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, facing so many familiar faces for the first time. Arrieta was a home-grown Oriole, once a can't-miss piece of the club's vaunted “calvary” group of young pitchers. But he struggled to find consistency in an Orioles uniform, leading to a trade that sent him to the Chicago Cubs in July 2013. But now Arrieta is flourishing with his new team, and on Friday he stifled the Orioles' bats, allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings in a 4-1 Orioles' loss to the Cubs, snapping the Orioles' four-game winning streak.

You've seen it before. Way too many times before. Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta has an outing in which he looks great in spurts and terrible in spurts. It happened again Sunday in a 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He had three perfect innings. The other two were disasters. And he ended up coughing up the lead in the fifth. Arrieta shouldered the blame. And that's not a problem. Arrieta's not afraid to point the finger at himself. He's also not afraid to work hard, to try and turn things around.

Right-hander Jake Arrieta, who was sent down after four excruciatingly erratic starts with the Orioles, pitched well in his first two starts for Triple-A Norfolk. Last night, his third start with the Tides did not go quite as well. The 27-year-old took the loss after allowing five runs, four of them earned, and seven hits over 6 2/3 innings. One of those runs came when Buffalo's Anthony Gose straight up stole home plate on him. Here's the video: Your browser does not support iframes.

The Orioles have not specified the schedule for Miguel Gonzalez yet. Gonzalez threw a side session this morning and indicated things went fine with the blister on his right thumb. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said it is still a possibility that he could fill the Orioles' need for Tuesday's open rotation spot, but said the club is more focused on making sure he is 100 percent healthy. Jake Arrieta had some tightness in his shoulder when he began a throwing session Tuesday at Triple-A Norfolk, but that subsided as he continued to throw fastballs.

For the fourth consecutive time this season, Orioles starter Jake Arrieta couldn't make it to the sixth inning. Arrieta allowed five runs, all of them earned, against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. He was pulled from the game with the Orioles leading, 4-3, in the top of the fifth inning at Camden Yards. The Dodgers had runners on the corners and no outs when he left. Those two runners scored after T.J. McFarland entered the game, but they were credited to Arrieta, who is in line for the loss if the Orioles don't erase this one-run lead.

I appreciate a good beard when I see one -- maybe it's because I can't grow one above my neck -- so I am bummed out to see that Orioles starter Jake Arrieta had shaved off his amazing Al Borland beard from FanFest. In case you missed it, the beard was breathtaking .  Yes, I know it's because the Orioles have a facial hair policy, which is ridiculous. How can Koji Uehara grow sideburns like these but Arrieta can't take a page out of Brian Wilson's book ? I guess it's to avoid a situation like this one (sorry, Nick Markakis)

Jake Arrieta has wanted to be “the guy” for the Orioles. He loved getting the ball on Opening Day. He loves competing. And he was crestfallen when he was taken out of the rotation because of ineffectiveness earlier this month. But he got a reprieve when Brian Matusz was pushed back because he bunted a ball off his face. Arrieta took Matusz's start against Pittsburgh and dominated (seven innings, one hit, nine strikeouts). He also pitched well in his next outing, but got the loss when he gave up a grand slam to Ike Davis in the sixth after holding the New York Mets scoreless through five innings.

CHICAGO -- The Orioles will play against two familiar faces in their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field this weekend. Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta is scheduled to start Friday's series opener, and left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is set to start Sunday. Arrieta, who was traded to the Cubs along with reliever Pedro Strop in July 2013 for right-hander Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, has emerged as the Cubs' ace. Arrieta struggled to maintain consistency with the Orioles, but he is 6-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 starts this season.

Two springs ago, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman was desperately trying to prove he could pitch in the major leagues. Last year at this time, he was attempting to show he was healthy and wasn't a fluke. And this March? Well, Tillman is now preparing to throw the first pitch of the Orioles' 2014 season at Camden Yards on March 31 against the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox. “Any time you get the chance to get that kind of opportunity it's a big deal,” Tillman said of being named the club's Opening Day starter.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Steve Clevenger made the Chicago Cubs' Opening Day roster in each of the past two seasons as the team's backup catcher, but making the Orioles' roster this season and running down the orange carpet on Opening Day would hold special significance for him. Clevenger, a Mount St. Joseph graduate, grew up an Orioles fan, living just a stone's throw from Oriole Park at Camden Yards , in Pigtown. The trade that brought him to his hometown organization last summer gave him an opportunity few players have.

The Orioles added another reliever to their roster on Friday, but also learned that two members of the 2013 club have gone elsewhere, including fan favorite Nate McLouth. According to sources, the Orioles on Friday signed right-handed reliever Ryan Webb to a two-year, $4.5 million deal, pending a physical, but lost left fielder McLouth to the Washington Nationals and right-hander Scott Feldman to the Houston Astros. McLouth, who had spent the last season and a half with the Orioles, agreed to a two-year, $10.75 million deal that includes a $6.5 million option for 2016, pending a physical, according to an industry source.

Scott Feldman pitched his last game of the season Friday. It was both his shortest and worst as an Oriole: He allowed eight earned runs in 2 1/3 innings in the Orioles' 12-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Now the question becomes whether this was Feldman's last start as an Oriole. He was acquired in July from the Chicago Cubs along with Steve Clevenger for pitchers Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop and international signing bonus slots. At the time, the Orioles knew he could become a free agent at season's end. They also knew what they were getting: a strong competitor and easygoing personality who didn't do anything flashy but normally kept his club in games.

Orioles right-hander Scott Feldman strolled to the mound for the ninth inning Friday night with 101 pitches under his belt and a relatively short leash as he saw two relievers warming up in the home bullpen. The 30-year-old pitcher didn't waste any time, needing just five pitches in the final inning to complete his first career shutout in a 4-0 win over a free-swinging Chicago White Sox team before an announced 26,253 at Camden Yards. “He was in command all night,” catcher Matt Wieters said.

It's never a pleasant experience for major league ballplayers when one of their struggling teammates gets sent to the minors. In close clubhouses, most of these guys are friends, or friendly anyway. And, frankly, many of them have been through the same situations. It's possible no one in an Orioles uniform has a better understanding of what Jake Arrieta is going through right now than fellow right-hander Jason Hammel. Arrieta, 27, was sent to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday after posting a 6.63 ERA in four starts.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - As the non-waiver trade deadline approaches in a week, the Orioles have become the biggest buyers among American League East contenders, acquiring their second veteran arm for the stretch run Tuesday evening. On Tuesday, the Orioles acquired right-handed reliever Francisco Rodriguez to bolster their bullpen for the second half from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for prospect third baseman Nick Delmonico. 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.

As the baseball season approaches the All-Star break, opposing teams still have yet to solve Orioles first baseman Chris Davis. Before Davis left Baltimore on Sunday afternoon to take part in this week's All-Star Game festivities in New York -- where his first-half success will certainly be a top national storyline -- he left Orioles fans with one final pre-break memory. Davis, who will start in Tuesday's All-Star Game and participate in Monday's Home Run Derby, blasted his major league-leading 37th homer of the season -- homering in his third straight game -- in Sunday's 7-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays, tying Reggie Jackson's American League record for most homers at the All-Star break, set in 1969.
