Things started out slowly this spring for lefty T.J. McFarland, whom the Orioles had taken from the Cleveland Indians in December's Rule 5 draft. As part of that draft's requirements, the Orioles need to keep McFarland on the 25-man roster (or disabled list) throughout 2013 or will have to offer him back to Cleveland at half his original purchase price. McFarland allowed hits, a run and a walk in each of his first four outings of this spring, making it look like the 23-year-old would be on his way out soon enough.

The Orioles will only have two lefties in their bullpen for the American League Division Series that starts tonight at 5:37 p.m. against the Detroit Tigers, and Ubaldo Jimenez is a surprise addition to the roster. The Tigers don't have many left-handed bench options, so Orioles manager Buck Showalter apparently felt he'd rather have an extra right-hander that can provide some length in Jimenez. Infielder Jimmy Paredes made the cut. Outfielder/baserunning specialist Quintin Berry didn't.

McFarland was expected to travel Monday to Chicago to be with his family after the death of his grandmother over the weekend.

Eleven pitchers threw their first bullpen sessions Wednesday, and Buck Showalter liked his first impression of left-hander T.J. McFarland, the team's Rule 5 pick in December. “He was impressive today,” Showalter said. “It's kind of nice. You see so much tape of these guys coming in and you read so many reports, and to be able to actually see them live, it's always a different look. Quickly, you can see why he's had success, the deception he has in his delivery. McFarland was maybe a guy who caught my eye today.” McFarland, who was 16-8 with a 4.03 ERA in 27 starts with the Cleveland Indians' Triple-A and Double-A affiliates last season, is a career starting pitcher, and the Orioles intend on him competing for a rotation spot.

Orioles left-hander T.J. McFarland joked after the Orioles' 7-1 victory that he didn't know for certain he would be starting Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers until he was told to go into the clubhouse and talk to reporters late Monday night. The Orioles waited to announce that McFarland would get the spot start until they made sure that they didn't need him to pitch in relief Monday. Now McFarland, 25, will get his first start of the year and the second of his major league career.

As the temperature rises every summer in Baltimore, so does the number of balls that carry out of Camden Yards. Hits similar to ones that landed at the warning track two weeks ago are now finding their way into the seats. And the Orioles lineup is built to take full advantage of such a summer swoon. The Orioles led the major leagues with 46 home runs in June, and they continued their power surge into July. They hit three homers, including Nelson Cruz's 26th of the season on his 34th birthday, in an 8-3 victory over the struggling Texas Rangers on Tuesday night in front of an announced 19,150.

In his pregame news conference Monday, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Chris Davis has been working quietly with infield coach Bobby Dickerson at third base for the past week or so as an option for when Manny Machado was suspended. Davis, who is starting at third base tonight against the Texas Rangers, has experience at the position, Showalter said, and it allows the Orioles to get Delmon Young in the lineup. Young has been relegated mainly to pinch-hit duties because Steve Pearce has been crushing the ball.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said in his pregame news conference that he hasn't heard anything from the league office about Manny Machado's suspension appeal, so the club is just waiting. He said he doesn't think it's too difficult of a situation. “Not really -- he's prepared for it,” Showalter said. “The dynamic to this is Tuesday. We need a starting pitcher there, and that's why you are cautious to give up a relief pitcher for someone to replace Manny. Because we don't really have somebody on the roster that you feel like physically can go real deep if the team allows them to.” Basically, the Orioles are expecting to lose Machado for between three and five games, starting in the next day or two. They would like to replace him with an infielder, and Jemile Weeks has been summoned to Baltimore, if needed.

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.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Left-hander T.J. McFarland was recalled before tonight's game against the Tampa Bay Rays to give the Orioles some needed help in the bullpen. To make room for McFarland on the 25-man roster, the Orioles optioned right-hander Brad Brach to Triple-A Norfolk. The team is more comfortable playing with 12 pitchers rather than having a short bench. That might change when third baseman Manny Machado gets a few more games under his belt after coming off the 15-day disabled list last week.

I ran into Jim Callis and John Manuel, the editors of Baseball America, a few minutes ago. The duo knows minor league baseball and its players as well as anybody, so I asked them about T.J. McFarland, the 23-year-old left-handed pitcher that the Orioles just selected in the Rule 5 draft from the Cleveland Indians. McFarland, a sinkerball/slider pitcher who throws his fastball in the high 80s, went 16-8 with a 4.03 ERA in 27 combined starts at Double-A and Triple-A in the Indians' system in 2012.

The perfect game was within reach.His first six shots were strikes, the seventh off just a hair."I just didn't get out of the ball the way I wanted to," said LeeMcFarland, who was bowling in the Wednesday Men's Late League at Thunderhead Westminster. "The shot wasn't as crisp as it should have been and came in a bit light."That shot in the seventh frame left a two-pinner that Lee converted. Then he went off the sheet with strikes for a 278 game that could have been, oh, so easily, that 300 he's after.

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.
