FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- For a utility infielder who often jokes about his limited playing time, Jeff Reboulet sure has a knack for finding his way into the Opening Day lineup.If happened in 1997 when second baseman Roberto Alomar was slapped with a five-game suspension to begin the season. And it could happen again next month, at the same position but for a different player and reason.With Delino DeShields out five to seven weeks with a broken thumb, Reboulet will be the starting second baseman today in the Orioles' exhibition opener against Minnesota in Fort Myers.

FORMER ORIOLES second baseman Bill Ripken can only hope it's true that what goes around eventually comes around, because he has issued a rather interesting challenge. Ripken unfortunately remembers that I was the Orioles beat writer for The Sun during a good portion of his Orioles career, and - as athletes are prone to do - only seems to recall that I occasionally was critical of the team's performance during the early 1990s. That seems like a long time ago to me, but it is fresh enough in the minds of the brothers Ripken that they have devised an evil plan to get revenge, and Bill was on the phone Monday explaining why it would be only fair that I went along on their new minor league fantasy bus tour (May 11-15)

Last month in Philadelphia, Jeff Reboulet joked to a reporter who was looking for a story: "If I demanded a trade with just 40 at-bats, it would be nothing more than a note."It was just one of many times in his career that Reboulet has laughed at himself and his role as a utility infielder.But once Reboulet steps on the field, all the jokes stop."I told Syd Thrift [director of player development] last year, they ought to put a camera on Jeff every time he walks on the field and show it to all the minor-leaguers," said Orioles manager Ray Miller last night before Reboulet started his fifth straight game, four of them at second base because of a finger injury to Roberto Alomar.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Jeff Reboulet soaked in the whirlpool that's outside the shower area in the Orioles' clubhouse as players arrived for a recent workout and exhibition game. Hitting coach Terry Crowley leaned on an equipment trunk as he held a long conversation with the veteran infielder. The moment provided a clear snapshot of Reboulet's spring training. He sought the hot water treatment for an aching left leg, and he wanted a consultation with Crowley to assist in ending his slump. Still fighting for a utility job, Reboulet is batting .133 in 19 games after bouncing to the mound yesterday in his only plate appearance.

On the field: The Orioles ran themselves out of the first inning. With Jeff Reboulet on second, Eric Davis on first and one out, Geronimo Berroa sent a long drive into the right-field corner. Milwaukee's Jeromy Burnitz made a running grab, then turned to find both Reboulet and Davis at third base. It was Milwaukee's 45th outfield assist, one shy of the club record.In the dugout: Milwaukee shortstop Jose Valentin was a late scratch because of a bruised foot, caused by a foul tip Saturday. Manager Phil Garner moved Mark Loretta from first base to shortstop and added Jack Voigt to the lineup.

Jimmy Key -- UP -- Responsible for three of the Orioles' last six wins. Has been the only thing standing between this team and total chaos.Ozzie Guillen -- DOWN -- A $450,000 insurance policy for Roberto Alomar was deemed expendable after three starts, one single and a startling lack of defensive consistency. Hack on, Oz.Jeff Reboulet -- UP -- Clubhouse Everyman will benefit from a less-cluttered infield situation. Didn't strike out in April. Then again, Reboulet received only 13 at-bats for the month.

How long he's gone is uncertain. The good news: His ankle is again healthy, and his left shoulder is close.

As Friday's 15-inning marathon was getting dangerously close to becoming a suspended game, Orioles pitching coach Mike Flanagan began looking around for Jeff Reboulet -- utility infielder and emergency pitcher. But Reboulet wasn't an option for a depleted bullpen since he had started the game at shortstop and been removed for a pinch hitter."I realized he had been used," Flanagan said, grinning.It's easy to joke when you're on the winning end of a game like that, one that lasted a club-record 5: 49 and would have been suspended if Rafael Palmeiro hadn't homered off Toronto's Bill Risley with two outs for a 7-4 victory.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - What a surreal scene it was earlier this week as Jeff Reboulet and B.J. Surhoff, equipment bags in hand, trudged through the parking lot on their way to the Orioles' spring training clubhouse. Two links to the recent past, when losing seasons weren't the norm, attaching themselves to a rusted chain. Surhoff's arrival played out for two weeks, with his workouts at Camden Yards and ongoing negotiations made public, but Reboulet seemed to appear out of nowhere. Never one to get much notice - utility infielders tend to keep a lower profile - maybe this was appropriate for him. The first segment of Reboulet's career with the Orioles began in 1997, the last year they made the playoffs before five consecutive fourth-place finishes.

CLEVELAND -- Orioles pitcher Jason Johnson met briefly with manager Ray Miller yesterday to clear the air regarding his abbreviated start Saturday.Johnson had questioned Miller's decision to pull him after two innings with the Cleveland Indians leading 5-1. The right-hander had thrown 62 pitches, including one that Jim Thome turned into a first-inning grand slam. Johnson struck out the last two batters in the second, then was informed by pitching coach Bruce Kison that he was finished.Johnson said he had just gotten into a groove and probably could have gone another four innings.

DETROIT -- The Orioles may decide today whether third baseman Cal Ripken will require a rehab assignment before leaving the disabled list. Ripken put himself through a rigorous workout before yesterday's game and emerged confident he is physically ready to play after missing three weeks with what is described as "nerve irritation" in his lower back."

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Jeff Reboulet started yesterday's game against Minnesota, but will sit the next two days to aid a tender left heel. Rich Amaral may take batting practice today if his sore back allows it. Lenny Webster's left shoulder still bothers him at times. And Chris Hoiles must deal with the restrictions caused by a sore hip. This is the Orioles' projected bench for the 1999 season. It may be a good group, but it's not exactly in good health. Reboulet had missed the past two games after starting the previous two. The tendinitis in his heel was aggravated by running sprints in the outfield and from chasing a shallow fly over his head, and manager Ray Miller couldn't afford to push him this close to Opening Day. Reboulet won't play again until Wednesday night.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Orioles manager Ray Miller said he had a "little discussion" yesterday with left-hander Arthur Rhodes, who turned in one of the worst performances by an Orioles reliever this spring in Tuesday's 11-10 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Given a five-run lead to protect in the ninth, Rhodes allowed four runs and walked three in two-thirds of an inning. By the time Jesse Orosco got the final out, Rhodes already had stormed into the clubhouse. It was the second straight time Rhodes couldn't close a game in the ninth.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- If progress is measured in small steps, infielder Jeff Reboulet has inched forward a little more. Projected as the Orioles' starting second baseman on Opening Day, Reboulet informed manager Ray Miller yesterday that his painful left heel had improved enough that he could appear in consecutive games. "He asked me about the situation, where we were at," Reboulet said. "We're moving along. I guess you have to start somewhere, right?" Reboulet started Monday's loss to the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie and "came out of it pretty good," Miller said.

Highlights and lowlights from the Orioles' 6-1 victory over the Florida Marlins at Fort Lauderdale Stadium.Ups and downsLenny Webster: The only Oriole with more than one hit, he also scored a run and knocked in another. He wants to be a starter, but he's too valuable to deal.Scott Erickson: Says he's "just trying to throw strikes." He shut down the Marlins for three innings.Doug Johns: Maybe he didn't nail down a job in the bullpen yesterday, but he sure dropped the hammer on the Marlins.
