SARASOTA, Fla. -- Righthander Jeff Robinson appeared a possibility to become the Orioles' first serious casualty of the spring yesterday, but it turned out to be only a mild scare.Robinson left yesterday's workout early because of discomfort in the forearm of his right (throwing) arm. It is the same area where he suffered a stress fracture last August, an injury that sidelined him the rest of the year."He had some muscle spasms and thought it might be related to the stress fracture," said manager Frank Robinson, "so I told him to get out of here and have it checked.

DETROIT - First came the sigh of relief, so strong that the flags moved in center field. The Orioles had a game to play last night, and they did it knowing that their starting second baseman wasn't seriously hurt, that they most likely would be short-handed for only one series. They could feel good for a few hours, until noticing that former teammate Jason Johnson brought his best stuff to the mound. And that Detroit Tigers catcher Ivan Rodriguez, playing with a hairline fracture in his right hand and about 30 fewer pounds than last season, still could swing the bat with authority.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Pitcher Jeff Robinson, who was acquired (( by the Baltimore Orioles in trade for Mickey Tettleton, was sent off camp for a medical examination yesterday after experiencing apparent muscle spasms in his right forearm.Robinson was scheduled to start today's intrasquad game, but could be held back pending the results of the examination."He said it was cramping up on him a little bit," pitching coach Al Jackson said, "so I told him to go see the trainers."He eventually was sent to a nearby orthopedic medical clinic for further evaluation.

It's natural to suppose that Mickey Tettleton has a point to prove each time he comes to the plate against the Orioles.After all, the Orioles dealt him to the Detroit Tigers for next to nothing -- since-departed pitcher Jeff Robinson -- after the 1990 season, just one year removed from his breakthrough, 25-homer 1989 campaign.But Tettleton said his ninth-inning triple yesterday -- which gave Detroit a 6-5 win in the second game of a doubleheader and ended the Orioles' division title quest -- was nothing personal.

Jeff Robinson, the pitcher acquired by the Baltimore Orioles in the trade for Mickey Tettleton last winter, has been placed on irrevocable waivers for the purpose of giving him his release.That was the major outgrowth of yesterday's reshuffling, which involved eight players and brought the roster to 39, one short of the limit required by Nov. 20."I told Jeff we felt with all the moves, it might be better for him to become a free agent right now," said general manager Roland Hemond. "We have to stay within limits."

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Right-hander Jeff Robinson still doesn' know what all the commotion was about, even though his 7.59 exhibition ERA left room to wonder whether he would be an effective member of the Baltimore Orioles' starting rotation.He tried to convince everyone that there was no cause for alarm. Today, he'll get a chance to prove it when he faces all-time strikeout king Nolan Ryan in the series finale at Arlington Stadium.Even manager Frank Robinson had to wonder after the veteran right-hander was knocked around in a series of early exhibition appearances.

Last July 24, Jeff Robinson caught the eyes of the Baltimore Orioles administration when he carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning of a game against the Orioles at Tiger Stadium.The performance was one of the reasons the club traded catcher Mickey Tettleton to Detroit for him last winter, and last night the Orioles received their first dividend from the deal.In his best outing in his new uniform, Robinson survived a shaky start to pitch seven shutout innings and the Orioles rebounded from two defeats with a 5-0 victory over the Texas Rangers before 21,834.

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. -- Right-hander Jeff Robinson hopes the Baltimore Orioles take the time to get to know him better. He has not opened any eyes in his first two exhibition appearances, so he just has to hope he hasn't closed any minds.The Boston Red Sox opened up on him for eight runs in the second inning yesterday on the way to a 16-7 Grapefruit League victory over the Orioles at Chain O' Lakes Park.Robinson was not charged with an earned run in the two-out, eight-run inning, but that was small consolation after he was hit hard for the second time in a row. He gave up six runs on nine hits in his 1991 exhibition debut last week.

Frank Robinson was unable to decide yesterday whether to accept a front-office job with the Baltimore Orioles.But another Robinson, pitcher Jeff, did not deliberate. His dutie were clear-cut -- make the team's fifth straight quality start.Robinson complied last night, and Todd Frohwirth bailed him ou of an eighth-inning jam to give the Orioles a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians and their first series triumph (also 2-1) since April 14 at Texas.Robinson (3-4) went 102 pitches and into the eighth inning for hi fourth career victory against the Indians, who never have beaten him."

Old Mill baseball coach Mel Montgomery is losing count of the numberof bizarre plays that have occurred during games against rival Arundel over the years.He has a few more to add to the list.The Patriots had a player ejected in the bottom of the seventh inning before scoring three unearned runs to rally past the visiting Wildcats, 3-2, yesterday.Arundel broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the top of the inning and was one out away from winning. But senior catcher Curt Odar, who earlier had cut down one runner trying to steal and picked off another, threw widely to first on a tapper in front of the plate, allowing Old Mill's Don Yost to score.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Baseball's winter meetings are over, and a handful of teams have gone home better for their week in the Florida sun. Time will tell whether the Orioles were one of them.General manager Roland Hemond did not go away empty-handed. He acquired Storm Davis for reserve catcher Bob Melvin, the merit of the deal depending largely on whether Davis still has the potential to be an effective major-league starting pitcher."Obviously, we feel he does," Hemond said. "He shows good arm strength.

Harry Brecheen, George Bamberger and Ray Miller were the Orioles' only three pitching coaches from 1954 to 1985. Dick Bosman is their sixth in eight years.Guess what?He might be the one to survive.Bosman, 47, inherits the worst starting rotation in the majors, but unlike the Al Jacksons and Mark Wileys before him, he's arriving at precisely the right time.Not to discredit Bosman, who offers stronger convictions than any of his recent predecessors, but his job will become much easier if the staff improves in a logical -- repeat, logical -- manner.

SEATTLE -- Right-hander Jeff Robinson, who expressed frustration Friday over his uncertain role on the Baltimore Orioles pitching staff, has been named to start Tuesday night's homestand opener against the Oakland Athletics at Memorial Stadium.Robinson said before Friday's game that he was uncomfortable shifting between the starting rotation and the bullpen and publicly called on the club to make a decision one way or the other.Pitching coach Al Jackson announced yesterday that Robinson would return to the rotation but said it had more to do with what he did during Friday's game than what he said before it."

The festival atmosphere of this final weekend notwithstanding, it has been a dramatic anticlimax for theBaltimore Orioles. Their season ends today, but like so many of their games this year, it was over almost before it started.First baseman Glenn Davis, whose arrival in Baltimore swelled preseason expectations, suffered a freak neck injury in spring training. Right-hander Ben McDonald, who had been announced the Opening Day starter before the opening day of the exhibition season, started the season on the disabled list for the second year in a row.That was only the beginning.
