MINNEAPOLIS -- Manager Mike Hargrove removed any lingering question about the direction of his starting rotation yesterday when he officially named Jose Mercedes the starter for Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and made him the de facto No. 4 starter. Hargrove set up the move last week when he juxtaposed Mercedes' and Calvin Maduro's starts. Originally scheduled to start Friday, Maduro was bumped in favor of Mercedes before giving a troubled five-inning start Saturday.

Carrying protest signs in English and Spanish, opponents of the Venezuelan government rallied peacefully Saturday at the World Trade Center in Baltimore in solidarity with demonstrations in the South American country against the administration of President Nicolas Maduro. About 80 people had gathered by early afternoon, standing in a circle in front of the building hoisting the country's yellow, blue and red flag, chanting anti-government slogans and listening to Venezuelan folk songs on a boom box. The demonstration was meant to coincide with others taking place in 70 cities around the world to bring international pressure on Maduro's government, which opponents blame for political repression, rampant crime and shortages of basic goods.

SEATTLE - Three days after being activated, Orioles reliever Calvin Maduro will return to Baltimore today for a magnetic resonance imaging of his right elbow after being placed on the disabled list for a second time. Maduro, who spent more than five weeks on the disabled list because of a sprained ulna collateral ligament, experienced stiffness behind his right elbow during Wednesday's appearance against the Oakland Athletics. The Orioles replaced Maduro by recalling Gabe Molina from Triple-A Rochester.

Orioles pitchers Calvin Maduro and Kris Foster cleared waivers this week, bumping them off the 40-man roster, and the club assigned them to Triple-A Ottawa. They have 10 days to either accept the assignment or become free agents. Maduro went 2-5 with a 5.56 ERA after being named the Orioles' No. 5 starter coming out of spring training. He underwent surgery in June to remove a fractured bone spur from his right elbow and missed the rest of the season. The Orioles acquired Foster from the Los Angeles Dodgers at the 2001 trade deadline, along with starting catcher Geronimo Gil, for reliever Mike Trombley.

Calvin Maduro barely stands 6 feet tall. His fastball wouldn't burn up any radar gun.Physically, Maduro, 20, isn't a prototypical pitching prospect. What makes Maduro special is his endurance.In his four years of professional ball, Maduro has led his team in innings pitched and has made the most starts on the staff inthree of those years.And he doesn't reach his best form until the second half of the season. Maduro, who has won seven straight decisions, went 6-1 over the final 3 1/2 months of last season and won six straight decisions in July 1993.

The dominance that Calvin Maduro exhibited this spring earned him a place on the Orioles' Opening Day pitching staff. It didn't, however, assure him of a job beyond the first two weeks of the season. He vanished as suddenly as he arrived. The Orioles outrighted Maduro to Triple-A Rochester before last night's game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, with John Bale being called up to take his place. The move gives manager Mike Hargrove three left-handers in the bullpen. It also continues what has been a strange and frustrating segment of Maduro's career.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- One of the most important days in Calvin Maduro's baseball life unfolded yesterday. It lasted only two innings. Its meaning could stretch much further. Fighting for a spot in the Orioles' rotation, Maduro tossed two scoreless innings in a 6-4 victory over a Cincinnati Reds split squad in the exhibition opener for both clubs. He needed 22 pitches, and very little help. Maduro was filling in for Scott Erickson, who underwent elbow surgery in Los Angeles yesterday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Once appearing to be settled, the Orioles' rotation won't leave South Florida completely intact. A crack has developed at the end, though there's no hurry to fill it. Fifth starter Calvin Maduro was placed on the disabled list yesterday with a strained muscle in his right forearm. The move is retroactive to Friday, making him eligible to be activated April 6. Maduro couldn't make yesterday's scheduled start against the St. Louis Cardinals because of soreness in his upper forearm.

Two months of evaluation remain for the Orioles. Who comes and who goes? Which pitchers start and which ones relieve? They are the purpose behind this season's leftovers. Wrapped within one of the strangest plays of an increasingly bizarre summer, the Orioles now contemplate the futures of nomads Calvin Maduro and Willis Roberts. Maduro pitched seven innings of yesterday's 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before an announced crowd of 40,139 at Camden Yards, giving manager Mike Hargrove something else to ponder besides a gaffe that contributed to his team's sixth consecutive series loss at home.

The Orioles released reliever Chris Brock and three other players yesterday and placed Calvin Maduro on outright waivers in an effort to clear space on their 40-man roster for players who need to come off the 60-day disabled list. The club also released left-handed reliever Yorkis Perez, infielder Luis Lopez and catcher Raul Casanova. The Orioles need to make room on the 40-man roster for players such as Albert Belle, David Segui and Erik Bedard. Belle, whose five-year, $65 million contract expires after next season, is being kept on the roster so the Orioles can collect on his insurance policy.

PHILADELPHIA - Ryan McGuire could recite pretty much every detail of his most recent at-bat. He demonstrated a pretty good memory, considering it came almost two weeks ago. Then again, when a player receives so few opportunities, he's likely to savor every pitch. As he has done on most nights, McGuire took a seat on the Orioles' bench as they began a nine-game swing through the National League. He had appeared in only five games since joining the club from Triple-A Rochester on May 18, and still didn't have a hit, going 0-for-6 with three strikeouts.

A difficult season for pitcher Josh Towers has taken an ugly turn. The Orioles must decide where it leads him. Triple-A Rochester manager Andy Etchebarren said he fined Towers after Saturday's game for flipping him the ball on the mound upon being removed in the fourth inning. Towers stormed to the dugout after giving up a two-run double to Charlotte's Joe Borchard, and was confronted again by Etchebarren. "He showed me up, and he showed his team up," Etchebarren told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

The Orioles placed pitcher Calvin Maduro on the disabled list yesterday, and he will likely undergo arthroscopic surgery this week to remove a cracked bone spur from his right elbow, keeping him out for six to eight weeks. Maduro, who was the team's No. 5 starter until last week, has been bothered by slight pain in his pitching elbow all season and knew about the bone spur last year, he said. The pain worsened during his relief appearance Tuesday in New York, so he returned to Baltimore and had a CT scan and X-rays taken Thursday.

NEW YORK -- Having gone six weeks without pitching in a major-league game, Jason Johnson must wait another day before officially returning to the Orioles. Last night's rainout with the New York Yankees has pushed Rodrigo Lopez into tonight's start, which had been reserved for Johnson, who will take the ball tomorrow against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Camden Yards. No makeup date for last night's game has been announced, but both teams have an opening Sept. 9, the day before the Orioles go to New York.

Told he wouldn't make yesterday's start, Orioles pitcher Calvin Maduro found a seat in the bullpen and waited for more than an ending to the game. He also waited to learn more about his status with the team. Sean Douglass took Maduro's turn against the Seattle Mariners and was charged with three runs -- two scoring after he left -- in 5 1/3 innings. Maduro was demoted after permitting 14 earned runs in 14 innings over his past three starts. "I'd rather be starting, but it's not my decision.

Now Camden Yards has felt what the fuss is about. Transformed the last two months from a ceremonial to a dangerous player, Cal Ripken overturned a two-run deficit with a third-inning swing in last night's 5-2 win over the Kansas City Royals before 40,539. His first home run of the season at Oriole Park took 59 games to arrive but came as a well-timed reward for starting pitcher Calvin Maduro and a place preparing its goodbyes. Ripken extended an already memorable homestand by hitting his first of 11 home runs before those who embrace him the tightest.

As Rodrigo Lopez plowed through the Seattle Mariners' lineup last night, taking a shutout into the sixth inning, he also pushed Calvin Maduro out of the Orioles' rotation. With Lopez avoiding an early exit, manager Mike Hargrove could save Sean Douglass for today's series finale. Douglass will take Maduro's turn, ending days of speculation that began when Maduro was rocked by the Oakland Athletics for a second consecutive start. Maduro allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday's 5-2 loss.

Exhibiting an impressive range of motion in his neck, Orioles pitcher Calvin Maduro was able to clearly read the signs from his catcher last night while also looking over his shoulder. It appears his next trick will be disappearing from the rotation. Maduro's security among the starters seemed to hinge on his results against the Oakland Athletics, and he raised more doubts about his longevity by lasting only 4 2/3 innings in a 5-2 loss at Camden Yards. The Orioles (22-27) fell five games below .500 for the first time since April 25, when they were 8-13.
