The Orioles entered new territory last week. Since the amateur draft began in 1965, the Orioles had never owned the No. 5 pick until Thursday, when they selected Georgia Tech catcher Matt Wieters. In fact, the Orioles had selected in the top five only four other times - producing solid but not awesome results. Only once have they had the No. 1 overall pick - in 1989, when they took LSU pitcher Ben McDonald. They have had the fourth selection three times: in 1988 (reliever Gregg Olson)

JEFFREY HAMMONDS wants to talk about today. He doesn't want to dwell on any yesterdays. Today, he is a 34-year-old on the deep end of the Washington Nationals' bench after starting the season in the minors. Today, his career is winding down. If Washington released him, he's not sure whether he'd look for another team or retire. That's for tomorrow. Today, he's an aging veteran trying to hit above .200. His yesterdays as a baseball phenom, however, are what make Hammonds' story so intriguing, so special.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Rafael Palmeiro spent one full season and parts of two others with the Chicago Cubs and five with the Texas Rangers. He has yet to play in the postseason.He likes his chances of getting there with the Orioles better than in his previous stops for reasons that stretch beyond talent. The Rangers had a stable of stars and an abundance of power. What didn't they have that the Orioles have?Baseball smarts."This is definitely the most fundamentally sound team of the three I've played for," Palmeiro said.

The Orioles apparently have jumped into the sweepstakes to acquire outfielder Rickey Henderson from the Oakland Athletics before tonight's trading deadline.Orioles general manager Roland Hemond confirmed last night that the club has made a bid to obtain Henderson from Oakland, though it is not known what the Orioles would send to Oakland in return.Henderson, who did not play in last night's game with the Texas Rangers because of sore legs, is fourth in the American League in hitting with a .327 batting average and in the top 10 in five other offensive categories.

On the field: Jeff Huson's homer in the fourth inning, which immediately followed a home run by Chris Hoiles, was his first major-league homer in more than three years -- his last was July 23, 1992, for the Rangers at Oriole Park.In the dugout: Brewers manager Phil Garner apparently expected a low-scoring game with Jimmy Haynes pitching against Milwaukee's Ricky Bones. Trailing 1-0 with one out and Cal Ripken at third base in the second inning, Garner ordered his infield in, and Chris Hoiles slapped a ground single through the middle.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Jeff Reboulet got more out of yesterday's game than he bargained for, sporting a golf-ball-sized welt on his left elbow after being hit by a pitch from New York Mets reliever Jae Weong Seo leading off the seventh inning.X-rays taken at the stadium were negative, but Reboulet will be out indefinitely. He started at second base yesterday and is assured of making the club as a utility infielder."It's not like there's a sharp pain. That's usually when there's a break," said Reboulet, who went 0-for-1 with a sacrifice bunt in the Orioles' 1-0 victory.

Orioles outfielder Eric Davis spoke with general manager Pat Gillick and manager Davey Johnson after yesterday's game and said he "probably" will be activated tomorrow.Davis, who recently had a bout with the stomach flu, still won't say when he's going to play during this homestand. He would have two chances tomorrow with the day-night doubleheader against Cleveland."You never know. Time will tell," he said, smiling.When reminded there will be a lot of baseball played in a short span, including another day-night doubleheader on Tuesday, Davis said, "I might be able to squeeze a few innings in there."
