SARASOTA, Fla. - Kevin Gausman, the Orioles' first-round pick last season out of LSU, threw his first bullpen session with the big league club Thursday. Gausman said he hasn't been informed of any innings count limit for this season, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter has indicated that Gausman and Dylan Bundy will be paced so that they are available to the major league club in September and October. Gausman, a 22-year-old right-hander, threw in front of pitching coach Rick Adair late last season during a road series in Tampa Bay, but Thursday's was his first structured session in his first big league camp.

Buck Showalter just wanted to know one thing from Ron Johnson and Mike Griffin. How did they steer the Triple-A Norfolk Tides to a winning record when Showalter spent the whole season stealing their players? “My gosh, I never heard a complaint,” Showalter said, gushing over Johnson, the Norfolk manager, and Griffin, the team's pitching coach. “It was just, 'What do you need? What does the club need?'” Johnson and Griffin were unsung heroes of the Orioles' improbable season, handling a dizzying array of call-ups and send-downs as the major league club coped with injuries and the struggles of young pitchers.

Catcher Luis Exposito, claimed off waivers from the Red Sox two weeks ago, is down on the field at Fenway Park in an Orioles uniform. That leads me to believe that the Orioles have made a yet-to-be-announced roster move bringing up Exposito, who is on the club's 40-man roster, to the big league club from Triple-A Norfolk. We're waiting to see what the corresponding move is. It's still unknown whether outfielder Nolan Reimold will be available for this series. He went back to Baltimore to receive treatment for neck problems and hoped to return for this season.

The Orioles lost their final season tuneup, 6-4, to their top affiliate, the Norfolk Tides, on Wednesday, but the important thing for the big league club is that lefty Brian Matusz again pitched well. Matusz allowed three hits and one walk while striking out five in four scoreless innings, throwing 57 pitches (35 for strikes). “He threw well. Very good,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He's been good about every time out.” Matusz, who had a 10.69 ERA in 12 starts with the Orioles in 2011, made this year's club with a 3.65 ERA in 24 2/3 big league innings.

If you're one of the Orioles skeptics who has been sitting at home the past two months waiting for the wheels to come off this suddenly competitive team, it looks like it might be time to shake your head condescendingly at all the cockeyed fans who had started to believe this season could really be different. The Orioles entered Wednesday night's series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays still clinging desperately to a piece of first place in the American League East, but they have undergone a discouraging metamorphosis over the past 10 days that has left them looking again like the divisional lightweight they have been for too long.

After more than a year of being out of big league baseball while attempting to rise above concussion symptoms, second baseman Brian Roberts is back in the game. He started his rehab assignment Wednesday in Double-A Bowie. The clock now starts ticking. He has 20 days to be activated by the big league club, though the team can halt the clock if he suffers a relapse or another injury. Otherwise, they would have to waive him, and the Orioles won't do that with their most veteran player and $10 million man. So the next three weeks are going to be interesting.

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada, who is recovering from last May's Tommy John surgery, will make his first minor league rehab start for Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday afternoon at Lehigh Valley. It will be the first time Wada pitches in a minor league game since last April, when he lasted just 2 2/3 innings in a minor league rehab start for Norfolk. Wada, a former standout in the Japanese Pacific League who signed a two-year, $8.14 million contract before the 2012 season, has yet to pitch in a regular season game for the Orioles.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles are working on a minor league deal with right-hander Luis Ayala, according to industry sources. Ayala, who was a valuable reliever on the Orioles' 2012 playoff team, was released by the Washington Nationals on Wednesday following a rough spring training in which he allowed nine runs and 10 hits in six innings. The move would give the Orioles added bullpen depth with a familiar reliever. The 36-year-old reliever would report to minor league camp in Twin Lakes Park.
