PHOENIX -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he was planning to go over potential September call-ups on the flight home from Arizona on Wednesday night. With Triple-A Norfolk competing for a wild-card spot in the International League playoffs, Showalter said he will try not to raid the Tides' roster, but he will rely heavily on the input of Norfolk manager Ron Johnson, whom Showalter lauds for his ability to know who can help the major league club. “I was looking at it a little bit today,” Showalter said before Wednesday's game.

The Orioles remain interested in signing free-agent outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, according to an industry source. Cespedes, the highly-touted Cuban defector, received free-agent status from MLB on Wednesday and can now begin negotiating with clubs. MLB said he still must obtain an unblocking license from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assests Control before he can actually sign with a major league club, so any negotiations are in their infancy. The Orioles liked what they saw of Cespedes, 26, in a private workout last month that was attended by manager Buck Showalter, director of international recruiting Fred Ferreira and international operations director David Stockstill.  And the club hasn't been scared off by Cespedes' poor numbers playing in the Dominican Winter League.

Only once before has baseball pitched a shutout against itself while depriving America of its gala centerpiece, the World Series. On that previous occasion, 1904, it wasn't met with any more approval than it is now in this troubled season of 1994 that finds the game shipwrecked against the rocks of avarice and greed.The "World Series that wasn't held" 90 years ago happened because of stubbornness, vanity and selfishness (but not financial) on the part of New York Giants' owner John Brush and his field manager, John McGraw.

The Orioles have placed infielder Wilson Betemit on the 15-day disabled list after an MRI taken before Thursday's game showed a small cartilage tear in his right wrist and a deep bone bruise. First baseman Joe Mahoney was called up from Triple-A Norfolk to replace Betemit on the roster. Betemit hadn't played in a game since Saturday. Before the call-up of rookie Manny Machado last week, Betemit had become the team's everyday third baseman. The switch-hitting Betemit has been one of the club's best hitters against right-handed pitching, batting .306 from the left side of the plate.

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.

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.

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.

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Outwardly, Dylan Bundy made it clear that he came to his second big league spring training with the goal of winning a starting rotation spot with the Orioles. But despite the tremendous amount of upside and talent the organization's top prospects possesses, it quickly became clear that Bundy being sent to the minors was less a question of if than when. With two weeks remaining in spring training and Orioles pitchers beginning to get stretched out for the regular season, Grapefruit League innings are suddenly becoming scarce.
