It's one of those questions that players hate. Was this your best game of the season? Many players can't tell you what they did when, they just go out and do it. They leave the comparing and analysis to the media. Monday's starter, Jason Hammel, didn't hesitate to answer after allowing two runs in eight innings against the Washington Nationals. “For the year, definitely the best start,” said Hammel, who struck out a season-high eight batters. He hadn't gone more than 6 2/3 innings this season.

As they try to rebound from a 5-4 walk-off loss to the Oakland Athletics at O.co Coliseum, the Orioles will face right-hander Jason Hammel - Baltimore's Opening Day starter in 2013 - for the first time this season. Hammel signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Cubs in the offseason and was dealt to Oakland along with Jeff Samardzija earlier this month. The Orioles player who has had the most success against Hammel? Catcher Nick Hundley, who is 7-for-14 with one homer and two RBIs.

The Orioles have announced that right-hander Jason Hammel, who left Friday's game in the fourth inning when he re-injured his balky right knee, will miss his next start, which was scheduled for Wednesday in Minnesota. Hammel had a MRI on Saturday afternoon, but the results were not immediately announced. However, the club said Hammel would miss one start. Orioles manager Buck Showalter is expected to address the situation and Hammel's treatment options after today's game against the Detroit Tigers.

The Orioles have signed veteran infielder Alex Gonzalez to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training, the club confirmed. Gonzalez, who turns 37 in February, hit .177 with a .203 on-base percentage in 118 plate appearances through 41 games with the Milwaukee Brewers last year. He is a veteran of 15 major league seasons and was an All-Star for the Florida Marlins in 1999. He has a career batting average of .246 in 1,600 major league games with six different teams.

Jason Hammel's night is over. And, given the fact he hadn't pitched in a big league game since July 13, it was about as good as could be expected. Hammel pitched into the sixth, being pulled with no outs in the inning after walking Alex Rodriguez. Through five-plus, the lanky right-hander allowed six hits, two walks and one earned run - on a Curtis Granderson two-out single in the fourth. He struck out six and retired the first six batters he faced. There was a scary moment in the fourth when Robinson Cano smashed a comebacker that hit Hammel in the right elbow.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel will make his second minor league rehabilitation start Tuesday for short-season Class-A Aberdeen. He is scheduled to throw between 60 and 65 pitches or go five innings, whichever comes first, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Hammel tossed 2 2/3 shutout innings for Double-A Bowie on Thursday night, his first time facing hitters since going on the disabled list with a right forearm strain on July 29. He threw 47 pitches (32 strikes), allowing three hits with no walks and two hit batsmen.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel was not particularly good on Thursday night. He struggled with his command, at one point throwing half of his 28 pitches for balls. He ended up with 104 pitches -- and only 59 for strikes. And yet he allowed just three hits, two runs (none earned) and two walks in six innings against the Oakland Athletics -- who led the majors in runs scored and on-base percentage heading into Thursday -- without being on the top of his game. Hammel may not be an ace, but he is the Orioles' No. 1 pitcher.

The Orioles' starting rotation, a strength during the team's early-season success, will be pieced together with patchwork the next two days. Right-hander Jason Hammel, who has anchored the rotation with a 4-1 record and 2.09 ERA, will most likely be pushed back from his scheduled start Thursday with right-knee soreness that he said had regressed the past two to three starts. But Hammel said he's confident that being pushed him back will avoid a stint on the disabled list.

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.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel admits that when he heard the diagnosis of his arm discomfort as a right flexor mass strain, he, too, had some concerns. That injury can be a precursor to problems - and possibly a tear - in the elbow ligament, similar to what top prospect Dylan Bundy experienced earlier this season before having surgery. But a MRI of Hammel's right arm Friday showed just inflammation near the ulnar nerve and no structural damage to the elbow. “We've got to calm that area down,” said Hammel, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday when the Orioles traded for Bud Norris.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Wednesday that he is still attempting to land a starter to improve the club's rotation. The winter isn't over yet, he points out. There are several pitchers who intrigue the Orioles - you know the list - and he's trying to get the right fit for what the club believes is the right dollars. My question to Duquette was whether it was important to have someone new in the fold by Saturday's FanFest. After all, this has not been a banner offseason for the Orioles, and the fan base, understandably, is growing increasingly annoyed with the lack of a marquee move.

The Orioles came to the winter meetings with their eyes on acquiring a left-handed hitter to help fill the void in left field and also at designated hitter. And the most likely avenue to snag that player seems to be in a trade, but from listening to executive vice president Dan Duquette speak last night, it seems like the Orioles aren't close to making a deal. While the Orioles continued to talk about trades, Duquette wouldn't describe any current discussions as better than “lukewarm.” That can obviously change quickly.

BOSTON - Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel will start Friday's series opener in Tampa Bay, filling in for right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who will miss his next turn in the rotation with a lingering right groin strain, manager Buck Showalter announced Tuesday. But with nagging injuries to Gonzalez and right-hander Bud Norris, the Orioles' starting rotation is in flux for their pivotal four-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Gonzalez, who left Sunday's game in Toronto in the sixth inning after tweaking his groin, received treatment on the Orioles' off day Monday and he played catch on Tuesday.

Bud Norris, who was scheduled to pitch Friday in Toronto, has been scratched for the series with right elbow soreness. He will skip a full turn and hopes to pitch again in Boston. Jason Hammel will take his place Friday at Rogers Centre. Norris said the discomfort is more of a "fatigue and tightness kind of thing," and with a little rest should be fine. “I've been battling it for a couple starts. It's this time of year," Norris said. "I definitely didn't want to miss any time but I figure it'll just be this one and go from there.

After lasting just 2 1/3 innings Wednesday in his first big league start since July, lefty Zach Britton's next appearance seemed tenuous. It's now expected to happen within the next week - for the short-season Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds. Britton, 25, was optioned Thursday to the only Orioles minor league affiliate that is still playing - the IronBirds kick off their first playoff series in team history Friday night against the Tri-City ValleyCats (Houston Astros) at Ripken Stadium.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel declared himself “100-percent” healthy and ready to return to the major-league pitching staff Tuesday after he pitched four, one-run innings for Short-Season Class A Aberdeen at Ripken Stadium.   “I don't know exactly what the plan is for the next couple of days, but I've done my work, they're taking good care of me, and I'm feeling healthy, so I'm ready to go when they want me,” said Hammel, who is working his way back from a sore elbow,.

Both Buck Showalter and Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette have said that Jason Hammel's possible early-September return from knee surgery would make essentially the same impact of a late-season trade. And after Hammel threw a late-afternoon bullpen session Tuesday, Showalter said the Orioles' ace will be activated from the disabled list before Thursday's game and start in that nightagainst the Yankees at Camden Yards. There was some question whether the right-hander, who had arthroscopic right-knee surgery in mid-May, would be activated this week or need one more minor league rehab start.

SARASOTA, Fla. -  Orioles pitchers Jason Hammel and Tommy Hunter threw in separate minor league games Friday at Twin Lakes Park to get their work in, but the free-swinging Tampa Bay Rays Class-A hitters they faced didn't help. With the Orioles facing mostly American League East opponents and the Minnesota Twins - their first opponent in the regular season, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has sent some of his starting pitchers to the team's minor league complex to pitch so they won't get overexposed.

BOWIE -- Facing hitters for the first time in more than a month, Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel threw 2 2/3 scoreless innings Thursday night in his first minor league rehabilitation start for Double-A Bowie. Hammel allowed three hits against the Binghamton Mets -- two of which came in a 20-pitch first inning before escapaing a bases-loaded jam -- and he struck out three and walked none. He also hit two batters. The Orioles' Opening Day starter, who has been on the disabled list with a right forearm strain since July 29, threw 47 pitches (32 strikes)
