New York Yankees starter Freddy Garcia grabbed a little history Tuesday night. He uncorked five wild pitches - becoming the first major league pitcher to do that since Philadelphia's Ken Howell on April 5, 1989. Dating to 1918, the five wild pitches in a game ties for fourth most by one pitcher. The amazing thing is Garcia threw four wild pitches all last season - in 146 2/3 innings. He threw four in all of 2010 in 157 innings. Just for the record, Ken Howell could have done the uncorking in 1989 with the Orioles.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado's next checkup on his left knee will be Friday afternoon in Los Angeles, and the hope is that he will be cleared to resume some baseball activities. Regardless, the 21-year-old All-Star is expected to fly back from Los Angeles to Baltimore on Friday and be at the Orioles' annual FanFest celebration at the Baltimore Convention Center on Saturday, according to a club source. Initially, the appointment and FanFest conflicted. Machado will see Los Angeles Dodgers team orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed the October surgery on Machado's left knee to repair a torn medial patellofemoral ligament.

According to an industry source, the Orioles have sought permission from the Atlanta Braves and expect to interview Dave Wallace, who has been the Braves' minor league pitching coordinator for the past four seasons. Wallace, 66, has been a major league pitching coach for four different teams: the Houston Astros (2007), the Boston Red Sox (2003 to 2006), the New York Mets (1999-2000)

But the memory of Brooklyn's much-cherished Brooklyn Dodgers lingers on.You could hear the loyal fans cheering recently when a federal judge ruled that the O'Malley family's baseball team had "abandoned" the blue-collar borough when it moved to Brooklyn in 1957.Thus, the name "Brooklyn Dodgers" stays in New York City.The judge declared the Brooklyn Dodgers "a non-transportable cultural institution separate from the 'Los Angeles Dodgers' or the 'Dodgers' who play in Los Angeles."

For the fourth consecutive time this season, Orioles starter Jake Arrieta couldn't make it to the sixth inning. Arrieta allowed five runs, all of them earned, against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. He was pulled from the game with the Orioles leading, 4-3, in the top of the fifth inning at Camden Yards. The Dodgers had runners on the corners and no outs when he left. Those two runners scored after T.J. McFarland entered the game, but they were credited to Arrieta, who is in line for the loss if the Orioles don't erase this one-run lead.

The Orioles announced Thursday that they've signed four players -- infielders Ivan De Jesus Jr. and Chris Marrero, outfielder Xavier Paul and right-hander Fabio Castillo -- to minor league deals and invited all four to spring training. Castillo, a former Texas Rangers farmhand who spent the last year in the San Francisco Giants organization, is the only one whose signing had not been previously reported. Originally signed out of the Dominican Republic by the Rangers, Castillo is 33-37 with a 4.63 ERA in 251 minor league games (37 starts)

We're taking a break from thinking about Manny Machado's knee (again) and are considering the teams that are still playing baseball. So grab a stool. I'll slide you a full glass. And, in turn, you give me your opinion on which teams make it to the 2013 World Series. I went 3-for-4 in my division series predictions. The only misstep I had was the Oakland A's-Detroit Tigers dogfight. I called the right number of games (5), but had the wrong team emerging. Now that the Tigers have advanced, they have the unenviable task of having to go to Boston to start another draining set of games.

Buck Showalter and the Orioles are obviously set at catcher with Matt Wieters, who has represented the club at the All-Star Game the past two years and has a pair of Gold Glove awards collecting dust somewhere. But Showalter is also quite fond of backup catcher Taylor Teagarden and raved about him on Sunday morning. Before the 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, one of my peers told Showalter that a few Orioles players had suggested that Teagarden actually had a stronger arm than Wieters, who has thrown out four of seven runners this season.

Right-hander Jake Arrieta stood stonefaced at his locker Sunday afternoon and placed the Orioles' 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers - and a missed chance at the club's first series sweep of the young season - squarely on his own shoulders. “I really didn't feel like the Dodgers beat us today. I beat us. I put us in a tough situation,” said Arrieta, who lasted just four-plus innings, giving up two hits, five walks and five earned runs. “Not giving up many hits at all, just making their job a lot easier by putting them on base for free.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter might not be a fan of doubleheaders, but he couldn't complain about the result of Saturday's split twin bill against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Camden Yards. The Orioles won both games of the doubleheader, getting a career-high four RBIs from Manny Machado in a 6-1 nightcap win that followed their 7-5 victory in the early game. In between, the team honored former manager Earl Weaver, the legendary Orioles skipper who preached the importance of pitching, defense and the three-run homer.
