Jair Jurrjens said late last week that he didn't expect he'd have his physical in Baltimore until at least mid-week. I am being told it likely will be Thursday and could bleed into Friday before an announcement is made. Nothing unusual there. Jurrjens agreed to terms on a one-year, major league deal last week and will compete for a rotation spot. He has minor league options remaining, so he can be sent down if he doesn't make the big league club. The Orioles have signed another outfielder with major league experience to a minor league deal.

Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has been placed on the seven-day minor league disabled list with a right lat strain, the club announced Thursday. Bundy injured the muscle after his last start at High-A Frederick, and ge did it while running. The injury isn't related to his arm, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. Bundy was evaluated by Orioles team doctors Thursday in Baltimore before the decision was made to place him on the DL. Bundy, 21, returned to the mound in June after he underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow ligament surgery last year.

DALLAS - The Orioles purchased the contract of two-time Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday evening and placed him on the 15-day major league disabled list as he continues to rehab from left shoulder surgery. In doing so, the club added Santana to its 40-man roster just before a Monday midnight deadline when he could have exercised an opt-out clause in the minor league deal he signed in March. The Orioles believe Santana could join the major league club later this month.

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.

Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez took being optioned to Triple-A Norfolk this weekend in stride, saying that he knows someone had to be sent down with the Orioles' current roster crunch. “We're stacked,” Gonzalez said before Sunday's game. “We have a good ballclub, and you've got to take that and be like, 'Oh, well.' You can't do anything about it. Everyone's pitching well. There's got to be a guy who's got to go down.” Gonzalez was optioned before Saturday's win to make room on the 25-man roster for right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who was activated from the disabled list to start the game.

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.
