The Orioles will recall Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk before tonight's game to serve as a right-handed long-relief arm behind left-handed starter Wei-Yin Chen, according to a club source. Following Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Rangers, the club optioned left-hander Zach Britton and right-hander Kevin Gausman, who both pitched Tuesday, to Norfolk. Before tonight's game, the team must also activate Chen off the disabled list. The Orioles chose to recall Stinson, who would be working on just three days rest if he is needed tonight, over left-handers Tsuyoshi Wada and Mike Belfiore because manager Buck Showalter likes to have right-handed long relievers when a left-hander starts.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Catcher Matt Wieters underwent successful Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery, performed by renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, on Tuesday afternoon. Wieters will miss the rest of this season, but the Orioles are hopeful he will be ready to return by Opening Day next year. A position player's estimated recovery time from the surgery is nine months. In the procedure, the palmaris longus tendon on the palm side of his right wrist was removed to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Orioles right-hander Josh Stinson -- who spent most of the season as a starter with Triple-A Norfolk -- has pitched well out of the bullpen while emerging as a reliable reliever.  In Stinson's first appearance with the Orioles, he allowed five runs, including four home runs, on five hits over 5 2/3 innings in a start against the Toronto Blue Jays on April 24. But in eight relief appearances since -- covering three separate stints with...

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.

One night after being sent down to Norfolk, right-hander Josh Stinson started for the Tides on Friday against Charlotte. Stinson pitched into the sixth inning, but he was removed after walking the first batter of the inning. He finished with one run on four hits and two walks in five innings with five strikeouts. Showalter said he wants the 25-year-old to keep pitching on his usual days and not sit around in the Orioles bullpen waiting for an opportunity. Stinson posted three straight quality starts for the Tides, including allowing one unearned run on three hits over seven innings at Charlotte on July 6 in his final start before his Wednesday call-up.

The Orioles activated left-hander Troy Patton between the two games of the doubleheader Thursday after he completed a 25-game suspension for testing positive for Adderall use. The Orioles' first game Thursday was their 25th of the season, meaning Patton had to be activated before the nightcap. To make room for Patton on the roster, the club outrighted right-hander Josh Stinson, who cleared waivers, to Triple-A Norfolk. Stinson had a 7.15 ERA in 11 1/3 innings over seven appearances with the Orioles this year.

After throwing 2 1/3 scoreless innings this weekend, right-hander Josh Stinson was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's game. Stinson knew his stint in Baltimore might be short, but said he wanted to make an impression on Showalter -- in part to facilitate a call-up when rosters expand in September. “I wanted to go out and show Buck that he can put me in a situation and I can go out there and execute my pitches,” said Stinson, who allowed two hits and a walk while striking out one in two games against the Colorado Rockies.

The Orioles optioned right-hander Josh Stinson to Triple-A Norfolk after their 3-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Thursday night. A corresponding roster move will be announced before Friday's series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays. Stinson was called up from Norfolk on Wednesday to provide right-handed bullpen depth for left-hander Wei-Yin Chen's return from the disabled list. Stinson warmed up in the Orioles' 6-1 win, but he didn't pitch. He also wasn't used Thursday. He now has to stay in the minor leagues for the next 10 days, barring a move involving the disabled list.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Josh Stinson's only start in an Orioles uniform last season didn't leave much of an impression. In a spot start, he allowed five runs - including four homers - in a 5 2/3-inning outing against the Toronto Blue Jays in April. Stinson was sent back to Triple-A Norfolk after that game, but by the end of the season, the 25-year-old right-hander went through a role reversal that finished with him pitching in high-pressure late-inning situations in September. Now, Stinson - despite pitching just 17 big league innings last season - will make a major play for the team's Opening Day roster as a reliever.

A trip to Houston to face the Astros could be just the right thing to break Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez out of a funk that has resulted in a pair of sub-par starts. Jimenez goes into Thursday's start in Houston with 4-0 record and 2.32 ERA in eight career starts against the Astros. He is also 2-0 with a 2.37 ERA in five starts at Minute Maid Park. He didn't pitch against the Astros when they played in Baltimore earlier this season. His last start against Houston came on Sept.

I've been hearing a whole lot of grumbling at the bar from Orioles fans recently. It's kind of interesting that this club is in first place and the fan base isn't satisfied. Frankly, I kind of like it. But there also is a certain need for patience and common sense, too. Anyway, I have received several emails and Twitter comments from people who think the Orioles need to make some 25-man roster changes. They made one after Sunday's game, sending left-handed reliever T.J. McFarland back to Triple-A Norfolk.

After he pitched three innings Sunday against the Houston Astros, the Orioles optioned left-hander T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk. The club wanted options in its bullpen for the upcoming three-game series against the Detroit Tigers -- and especially a right-hander who can serve in long relief. With McFarland sent down, the Orioles currently have no designated long men and still have three left-handers in the bullpen. Candidates to be called up could include Josh Stinson, assuming the club places him back on the 40-man roster, as well as Steve Johnson, who recently returned from injury, and Suk-min Yoon, who has struggled with consistency.

During his pregame news conference, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he did not want third baseman Manny Machado to play 18 innings in his first day in the major leagues since injuring his left knee last Sept. 23. He also wasn't keen on Machado playing the first game of Thursday's doubleheader, sitting for several innings and then using him late in the second game as a pinch-hitter or for defensive purposes. There were some other factors, too, Showalter said, but ultimately that was the reasoning for Machado sitting out the first game . Machado will start Game 2 and play third base.

TORONTO -- Miguel Gonzalez's ability to control his emotions on the mound in tough situations is one of the reasons he has become a quality starting pitcher in the major leagues. But following the Orioles' 9-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night at the Rogers Centre, there was some frustration in the right-hander's voice. “It's pretty frustrating,” he said. “We're better than that, as a whole, as a team, and it's going to come around.” After dominating Toronto for five innings, Gonzalez didn't survive the sixth, as deep counts led to another premature exit from an Orioles starting pitcher.

TORONTO -- The Orioles recalled left-hander T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk before Tuesday's game and designated outfielder Steve Pearce for assignment. McFarland, who was scheduled to start for Norfolk on Tuesday, will add depth to a bullpen depleted from pitching 7 1/3 innings over the past two games in Boston. Three relievers - left-handers Zach Britton and Brian Matusz, and right-hander Darren O'Day - worked back-to-back days. McFarland and right-hander Josh Stinson gave the Orioles two long-relief options Tuesday.

So here's the good news for Orioles fans: The club heads into its six-game homestand against the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays having won three of the past four games and doing so without their Gold Glove left side of the infield, Manny Machado and J.J. Hardy. It wasn't long ago when it seemed like the Orioles were facing must-win situations in April. But after opening the season losing five of six, they head into the weekend 4-5. The bottom of the lineup is starting to produce, manager Buck Showalter has again mastered the art of using his bullpen, closer Tommy Hunter is 3-for-3 with save opportunities and the offense has shown its potential for the big inning over the past two games.
