Catcher Matt Wieters said before Tuesday's game against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards that he could have surgery next Tuesday on his right elbow if Dr. James Andrews determines during his appointment Monday that the procedure is necessary. "If we do decide that that's the route to go, then the quicker the better, obviously," Wieters said. "The elbow just wasn't quite discomfort-free. It was something where we were hoping it would be a little further along at this point, and at this point in the year, we want to make sure that we get the best eyes on it and be able to have him look at it and be able to make a decision when he sees it. " Wieters initially visited Andrews on May 7, when the doctor determined he didn't need surgery on a strained right elbow.

It was a lonely day at Camden Yards yesterday. Orioles pitching coach Dick Bosman was there, but he didn't have much company.Bullpen coach Elrod Hendricks, who comes with the territory and is always on hand for the informal off-season workouts, was there. So was minor-league pitching coach John O'Donoghue Sr., and left-handed reliever Brad Pennington, the only player on the Orioles' major-league roster in attendance.But, the most notable attendee was Gregg Olson, the free-agent reliever on the comeback trail after an elbow injury that sidelined him the last two months of the 1993 season.

Orioles reliever Danys Baez informed club officials yesterday that he has decided to have ligament-transplant surgery to repair the partially torn ligament in his right elbow. Baez, who started the season as the Orioles' top setup man but struggled mightily after a solid April, still hasn't set a date or chosen a doctor for the surgery, but it will force him to miss next season, joining closer Chris Ray on the sideline. Ray had the same procedure, often called Tommy John surgery, last month and is expected to miss most if not all of next season.

Free-agent relief pitcher Gregg Olson has drawn interest from a number of other teams, but contract negotiations with the Orioles are set to resume next week.Agent Jeff Moorad has indicated that there is significant outside interest in Olson, who was left untendered by the Orioles on Dec. 20 because of the uncertain condition of his injured pitching elbow. Though other clubs figured to be equally wary of his physical condition, 10 teams reportedly have expressed at least mild interest, and the California Angels are expected to present an offer soon.

The elbow pain that forced Orioles pitcher Pat Hentgen onto the disabled list will take him to Birmingham, Ala., sometime this week, where he'll be examined by renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews. It has also pretty much eliminated any chance of Hentgen's being ready to come off the disabled list when eligible Friday. A magnetic resonance imaging Saturday was inconclusive, though the Orioles remain convinced the discomfort isn't caused by any ligament damage. Team doctors have diagnosed the problem, which prompted Hentgen to receive a cortisone injection last week, as a sprained flexor tendon.

Matt Riley underwent successful ligament-transplant surgery on his left elbow yesterday in Los Angeles. The Orioles' pitching prospect most likely will miss the entire 2001 season but could return to the mound that fall. He's expected to begin the first stages of a rehabilitation program next week in Arizona. Riley, 21, initially had been found to have a strained muscle in his forearm until a magnetic resonance imaging last week revealed ligament damage. Dr. Lewis Yocum performed the "Tommy John surgery," as he did with pitcher Scott Erickson in August.

The Orioles received good news today after Manny Machado's visit to Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla. Machado went to see Dr. Andrews to receive a second opinion on his injured left knee, and Andrews' evaluation concurred with that of the Orioles team doctors, according to an industry source. Orioles team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens recommended a conservative approach of rest and rehab and no surgery. The team hopes Machado can be doing light running drills in six to eight weeks and be ready for spring training.

Rookie second baseman Jonathan Schoop came to Camden Yards on Saturday afternoon feeling sore in several areas, prompting team doctors to check him out. Schoop twisted his lower torso awkwardly in a rundown while playing second base Friday night. He remained in the game and was fine, but it was a different story Saturday morning, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Schoop missed several weeks this season because of a stress fracture in his back, and the Orioles want to make sure his soreness is not related to that injury.

Right-hander Dylan Bundy, whose throwing progression in Sarasota was cut short Monday after he again felt discomfort in his arm, saw team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens on Tuesday in Baltimore. But the Orioles will wait until Bundy has a follow-up visit with Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday in Florida before deciding the next step with their prized pitching prospect.  For Bundy, this is his second setback this season in his rehab from right forearm and elbow tightness. Bundy, the No. 2 prospect in baseball according to Baseball America, hasn't thrown off a mound since late in spring training.

Buck Showalter had initially said that top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy was seeing renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday, but the manager told reporters after Wednesday's game that he misspoke about Bundy's schedule. Showalter said Bundy is scheduled to see Andrews in Florida on Monday for a second opinion on his right arm tightness, and he will see Orioles team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens on Thursday. Wilckens evaluated Bundy and read an MRI back on April 4 before the right-hander was placed on the seven-day minor league disabled list.

Orioles top prospect Dylan Bundy, shelved since March with right arm tightness, was scheduled to see renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday in Gulf Breeze, Fla., to get a second opinion on what's causing his ongoing discomfort. “We hope to find out that [Andrews] feels the same way that our people do [who] have looked at it,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “We're very supportive of it.” The organization has been deliberate with Bundy's recovery, but the move to seek a second opinion came a day after the right-hander felt lingering discomfort while throwing from 90 feet off flat ground at the team's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla. It was the first time he had thrown that far since going on the seven-day minor league disabled list April 4. Bundy hasn't pitched from a mound since late March.

Let's stipulate right now that the Orioles are being open and honest about the Dylan Bundy situation and that there's no reason - at least not yet - to get all hot and bothered over the nagging forearm soreness that has prompted him to seek a second medical opinion from famed orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Okay, now that we've established that, go ahead and panic. Bundy is a very tough kid who would run through the clubhouse wall if it would get him to the big leagues faster, so if he's saying that there's still something going on with his arm after throwing a relatively low-inpact, flat-ground session at the Orioles' extended spring training facility in Florida, it's not unreasonable to be concerned that the Orioles' top pitching prospect may be looking at some serious down time.
