NEW YORK -- The Orioles were taking early batting practice before tonight's series opener against the Yankees, and those participating has given a little insight into some of the September call-ups. Outfielder Xavier Avery and catcher Luis Exposito were with the team participating in early batting practice. Both will likely be added to the Orioles roster when it expands tomorrow. Both are already on the organization's 40-man roster. The 22-year-old Avery made a splash earlier this season when he was called up to play left field and lead off, hitting .233/.317/.356 in 24 big league games. At Triple-A Norfolk, he hit .236/.330/.356 with eight homers and 34 RBIs and 22 stolen bases in 30 attempts.

Right-hander Zach Clark, the former UMBC player who was added to the club's 40-man roster this offseason, will be activated by the Orioles tonight in Seattle, an organizational source said. He will provide some bullpen insurance as the Orioles are in the middle of an 11-game road trip on the West Coast. Clark is a pretty incredible story. A non-drafted free agent out of UMBC in 2006, the Newark, Del., native was signed by the club's local baseball guru, Dean Albany. Clark, who turns 30 in July, is in his eighth year in the minors without ever getting a big-league sniff until now. He may be returning soon to the minors -- the Orioles under Dan Duquette are known for shuffling players back and forth.

The Orioles have made three more cuts, optioning catcher Luis Exposito to Triple-A Norfolk and sending non-roster invitees Daniel Schlereth and Adam Russell to minor league camp. Exposito, who is on the 40-man roster, batted .381 with a .481 on-base percentage in 14 spring games. But the 26-year-old had struggled defensively, making two errors, including a catcher's interference that allowed the winning run to score when he scooped up a live ball with his catcher's mask. Exposito, who batted .056 in nine games with the Orioles last year, will compete for the starting job at Norfolk.

Buck Showalter made it official today in his pre-game meeting with reporters - well, he made it almost official today. Zach Britton, as expected, will make his 2013 debut as the club's starter Monday at Safeco Field against the Seattle Mariners and Britton's old Orioles teammate, Joe Saunders. However, that still could change if the Orioles play a long, extra innings game today in Oakland and need Britton in an emergency. In that case, they would have to scramble for a starter Monday.

SARASOTA, Fla. - One day after an ugly game against Team Spain in which they dominated, the Orioles took on an American League East rival in another sloppy game. They nearly gave it away, but in the ninth inning Ryan Flaherty hit a three-run, two-out, walk-off homer to give the Orioles an 11-10 victory against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was the first spring homer for Flaherty, who is fighting for a reserve infield role. The Blue Jays took the lead in the ninth by scoring two runs on a Luis Exposito error and an Adam Russell walk.  Jason Hammel, who likely will be the club's Opening Day starter, allowed one run in 2 1/3 innings in his second Grapefruit League performance.

The Orioles play in Bradenton again this afternoon against the Pittsburgh Pirates - that's the 723rd game between the two teams this spring (I'm only slightly exaggerating). Here's the Orioles' lineup: Alexi Casilla 6, Lew Ford 8, Conor Jackson 3, Steve Pearce DH, Russ Canzler 9, Danny Valencia 5, Yamaico Navarro 4, L.J. Hoes 7, Luis Exposito 2. Jake Arrieta 1. And the Pirates' lineup: Sterling Marte 8, Jose Tabata 9, Neil Walker 4, Pedro Alvarez 5, Gaby Sanchez 3, Felix Pie 7, Clint Barmes 6, Michael McKenry 2, Locke 1. Yes, the Pirates are forfeiting the DH to have their pitchers hit - the NL prerogative when spring games are played in NL parks.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Each of the Orioles' first five batters facing Yankees starter Nik Turley scored before the New York left-hander could record a single out Wednesday afternoon as the O's ran out to a quick seven-run lead in a 10-7 win. A rematch of last year's American League Division Series it was not. The Orioles brought 12 players from the team's minor league minicamp to fill the later innings, and the Yankees' starting lineup included just two...

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that, assuming all goes well with lefty Randy Wolf in his workout today and he receives medical clearance, Wolf will be activated onto the 25-man roster Friday. The 36-year-old left-hander will then be eligible to be placed on the Orioles' playoff roster, if necessary. Wolf is expected to join the bullpen - though he has made just five relief appearances in his 14 season career spanning 371 games. He hasn't pitched since Aug. 17, when he allowed five runs in seven innings against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Orioles have attempted to bolster their lack of catching depth by sending minor league right-hander Rob Delaney to the Los Angeles Angels organization for veteran catcher Chris Snyder. Snyder, 32, will meet the team in Seattle on Tuesday and presumably will take over the back-up catching void created when Taylor Teagarden dislocated his left thumb Saturday. The Orioles recalled Luis Exposito for Sunday's game - he did not play -- but now it is likely he will lose his place on the big league roster Tuesday with the pending arrival of Snyder, a veteran of parts of nine major league seasons.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Orioles reserve catcher Taylor Teagarden is out likely three to four weeks after taking a foul ball to the tip of his left thumb in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 7-3 win over the Oakland A's on Saturday . Teagarden said when he took off his mitt, the thumb was bent backward and was “kind of scary looking,” and he immediately assumed it was broken. Instead, X-rays confirmed it was only a dislocation, but it will still require a 15-day disabled-list stint that could last a month.

SEATTLE - Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette never revealed his specific expectations for the season when it began in April. But now his immediate goal is clear. And it's not winning an American League wild-card spot. "We're in a position now that we have the kind of ballclub that we could win the division," Duquette said Tuesday. "We have an opportunity to win the division, that's like advancing a round in the playoffs. " Heading into Tuesday night's game in Seattle, the Orioles held the second AL wild-card post but were also just a half-game behind the New York Yankees in the AL East race.
