The Orioles didn't make a blockbuster deal before Thursday's nonwaiver trade deadline like some other American League contenders, but they picked up one of the fiercest left-handed relievers in the major leagues to further fortify a stout bullpen. With about an hour to spare before the deadline expired, the Orioles acquired 29-year-old left-hander Andrew Miller from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for minor league left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez. Miller, a free agent at the end of this season, is expected to be in uniform Friday and available to pitch out of the bullpen against the Seattle Mariners.

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.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Left-hander T.J. McFarland has been scratched from his scheduled start at Triple-A Norfolk on Monday night, and he likely will join the Orioles for their series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Tuesday, according to an industry source. Following Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field, Orioles manager Buck Showalter expressed concern about the overuse of his bullpen, especially since Tuesday begins a span in which the Orioles play 13 straight days and 26 of their next 27 days.

BOSTON -- As the Orioles left Boston on Monday afternoon with their bullpen depleted from accounting for 7 2/3 innings in two games over the past 24 hours, left-hander T.J. McFarland was on his way to Toronto to meet up with the club for some relief help. The Orioles are expected to officially recall McFarland before Tuesday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre, according to an industry source. In the Orioles' 7-6 win over the Boston Red Sox on Monday, three Orioles relievers pitched for the second consecutive day, including both left-handed relievers -- Zach Britton and Brian Matusz.

SARASOTA, FLA.  - When left-hander Brian Matusz arrived in the major leagues in 2009, his changeup was an essential part of his four-pitch arsenal. But as Matusz struggled as a starter before finding a home in the Orioles bullpen last season, he said lost his feel for the pitch. Even though Matusz served as the club's best left-handed reliever in 2013 - his first full season in the bullpen - the 27-year-old has made it clear that he wants to be a starter again. This offseason, Matusz realized that rediscovering his changeup would be vital to reaching that goal because it would help him get right-handed hitters out, which has been his main obstacle to earning a regular spot in the rotation.

- These days Zach Britton can speak confidently about some of the tough times he's been through over the past two years. The left-hander admits that there were times when he felt he lost the confidence of his Orioles teammates when he was on the mound. Simply put, the results weren't there. And that led his mind to become scrambled with a lot of questions and few answers. "I've been through some stuff the past two years," Britton said. "But I try not to even think about that stuff anymore and just focus on what I have to do to be successful here.

Orioles left-hander Troy Patton said he took an Adderall pill four days before this past season ended as a temporary fix to improve focus and then was tested for banned substances the next day. On Friday, Major League Baseball announced that Patton was suspended for 25 games without pay, starting next season, for testing positive for a banned amphetamine. He will be placed on the restricted list for the start of 2014. “I took one because I was stupid,” said Patton, who was 2-0 with a 3.70 ERA in 56 games in 2013.

The Orioles made several roster management moves Monday, including officially declining the $3 million option for 2014 in infielder Alexi Casilla's contract, buying it out for $200,000. The 29-year-old infielder, who batted .214 in 62 games for the Orioles in 2013, is now a free agent and is eligible to sign with any club. "He is a good player," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. "He didn't see a lot of playing time for us, but when he did play, he did a good job. " The Orioles also added 25-year-old left-handed pitcher Chris Jones to the 40-man roster.

With a 5 p.m. deadline looming on Friday to sign their amateur picks, the Orioles are pretty much done their dealing -- especially after agreeing to terms with a highly regarded prep pitcher who had fallen deep into the draft. According to an industry source, the Orioles have agreed to terms with prep left-hander Danny Ayers from Columbus, Ind., their 25th-round pick who was the 759th player selected in June. Ayers, a 6-foot-3, 205-pounder who can throw his fastball consistently in the low-90s, was ranked as the 177th best draftable amateur this year by Baseball America.
