Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel is scheduled to make a minor league rehabilitation start Thursday for Double-A Bowie, which will be his first game action since a loss to the Boston Red Sox on July 28. Hammel, who has been on the disabled list for nearly a month with a strain of the flexor mass in is right arm, will first throw another bullpen session Sunday. If all goes well then, he'll throw 45 to 50 pitches for the Baysox on Thursday night at Prince George's Stadium. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said the club wants Hammel to make at least two minor league rehab appearances before returning.

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.

MINNEAPOLIS - Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman is scheduled to have an MRI down at Triple-A Norfolk on Friday and the club hopes to get more clarity about a mysterious injury that popped up Thursday.   Gausman woke up early Thursday morning with pain in his rib cage, something that was uncomfortable enough to interrupt his sleep at 4 a.m., according to player development director Brian Graham.  He was evaluated by the doctors at Norfolk, who initially believed the injury was an intercostal muscle strain.

Right-hander Daniel McCutchen, whom the Orioles signed to a minor league deal this winter and was sent out of camp March 23, has been suspended for 50 games for violating the league's drug policy for using a banned substance. According to a Major League Baseball press release, McCutchen tested positive for Methenolone and a metabolite of Trenbolone. The suspension begins immediately. McCutchen, 29, was 1-0 with a 6.14 ERA in 7 1/3 innings over seven games this spring with the Orioles.

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.

Two older gentlemen sit in the back of the press box, arguing over the validity of the diving catch the Bowie Baysox right fielder just made. "I'm going to give Barfield defensive player of the game after that catch," one of the two Baysox staffers exclaims, while his counterpart shakes his head and looks down at his scorebook. "No way. He took the wrong angle," the other says. "It was a nice catch but only because he was out of position. " So it goes in the career of Josh Barfield, the former top prospect of the San Diego Padres who now finds himself as a 29-year-old utility man for the Orioles' Double-A affiliate.

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.

Right-handed reliever Heath Bell, who was released by the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, signed a minor league deal with the Orioles on Friday night and will report to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. A former, three-time All Star closer with the San Diego Padres, the 36-year-old Bell has struggled since signing a three-year, $27 million deal with the Miami Marlins before the 2012 season. He has been traded twice since then and compiled a 7.27 ERA in 13 games with the Rays this year before being released.
