HOUSTON -- Executive vice president Dan Duquette said the Orioles are still working to keep left-hander Johan Santana, who can exercise an opt-out clause in his minor league deal within the next few days. The team has until tomorrow at midnight to work something out with Santana, the two-time Cy Young award winner who hasn't pitched since 2012 and is coming off a second shoulder surgery in a three-year span. With Santana's opt-out date looming, the Orioles wanted the 35-year-old to pitch one more game of approximately 85 pitches, in extended spring training before making his first start with an affiliate June 8 for Triple-A Norfolk at Durham.

Before Monday's game, the Orioles purchased the contract of right-hander Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk to bolster a bullpen that was depleted after right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez's short outing Sunday against the Oakland Athletics. To make room for Stinson, the club optioned right-hander Brad Brach to the Tides. Brach threw 58 pitches in two innings Sunday and has a 5.40 ERA in 10 games for the Orioles this season. The Orioles transferred left-hander Johan Santana, who tore his left Achilles tendon on Friday, to the 60-day disabled list to clear space for Stinson on the 40-man roster.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said left-hander Johan Santana will throw five innings or 75 pitches Tuesday in an extended spring training game and then his next step will be determined. Santana, a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner, has an opt-out clause at the end of the month in the minor league deal that he signed in the offseason, but Duquette said he doesn't believe that is a concern. “That's open for discussion. I think the June 1 date was a date we had in mind that he would be close to being ready for the big leagues,” Duquette said.

The Orioles lost their primary starting-rotation insurance Friday afternoon when veteran left-hander Johan Santana tore his left Achilles tendon in Sarasota, Fla., ending his 2014 season. At 35, Santana's playing future also may be in jeopardy "I know the rehab is significant for these tendon injuries, and we'll have to get with him and speak to him," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. "But he won't be able to pitch for the Orioles this season. " Santana, a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner with the Minnesota Twins, in 2004 and 2006, had been rehabilitating from his second surgery on his left shoulder in a three-year span, and was on the verge of returning to the majors.

The best young left-handed starter in baseball almost wasn't. The Minnesota Twins' Johan Santana didn't earn a full-time rotation spot until last year. He didn't concentrate on pitching until he was 16. He didn't even know he was a left-hander until he was 11. The blame for that one, anyway, can be attributed to economics. Santana, the 2004 Cy Young Award winner, who starts this afternoon against the Orioles at Camden Yards, was right-handed by necessity. Growing up in a small mountainous town in Venezuela, Santana got his first taste of the sport watching his father play shortstop on local baseball and softball teams.

DALLAS - As the Orioles open a three-game series against the Texas Rangers in Arlington on Tuesday, the club is optimistic that outfielder Nelson Cruz can return to the starting lineup after he was hit by a pitch Sunday in Houston. Cruz has a bruise on the outside edge of his left hand. He was feeling much better 24 hours after getting hit, and the swelling in his hand went down enough that he was able to hold a bat. One club official said that Cruz was confident he would be able to play tonight.

There's something special about weekend when you can get things done around the house and still enjoy yourself. This was one of those for me, but I'm still pretty beat.
