The Orioles added a pair of relievers Monday, the first day of expanded rosters, as they recalled right-hander Evan Meek from Triple-A Norfolk and purchased the contract of left-hander Joe Saunders from the Tides. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club initially planned to just add Saunders on Monday, but he decided to add Meek as well after the team was forced to use five relievers in the 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. The team is also expected to add right-hander Ryan Webb on Tuesday as long as he is OK after his outing at Norfolk on Monday.

If Brian Matusz had won the matchup with the Tampa Bay Rays' James Loney in the sixth inning, the rest of the Orioles' game Sunday afternoon could have looked a lot different. But Loney hit a double, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter decided to stay with the left-hander instead of inserting right-hander Ryan Webb and further depleting a bullpen worn thin by Friday's doubleheader and a short outing Sunday by starter Miguel Gonzalez. Matusz, who was brought in to face the left-handed Loney with two outs in the sixth, went on to give up another double and a two-run home run as part of a decisive seven-run inning, and the Orioles set a new season-high in runs allowed in a 12-7 loss to the Rays in front of an announced 32,665 in the series finale at Camden Yards.

Meeks, who broke Dan Issel's 39-year-old record of 53 points set at Mississippi, was mobbed by his Kentucky teammates in the middle of the Thompson-Boling Arena court in Knoxville, where the Wildcats (13-4, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) handed the Volunteers their third loss in January. "It means a lot to be in the same sentence as Dan Issel. It's mind-boggling," he said.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris said he is "a little bummed out" about being placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a right groin strain, but he said he understands that the club is best served when he is healthy. “I want to do my job. I just want to pitch every fifth day and win as many ballgames as I can and stay healthy,” Norris said. “I'm a little bummed out about it, but I've got to take care of it and get back out there as soon as I can.” Norris, who has been the club's most consistent and effective starter this season, left Saturday's game at Yankee Stadium before the sixth inning with tightness in his right groin.

Lots of roster stuff from the Orioles today. Right-hander Kevin Gausman is in Baltimore and will start Saturday's game against the Oakland Athletics. He will make his second start of the season for the Orioles, and it will be against another recent first-rounder, the Athletics' Sonny Gray. Gausman, the club's first-round pick (fourth overall) in 2012, is getting the call because righty Miguel Gonzalez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique. Gonzalez will pitch one game at a minor league affilaite, either Double-A Bowie or High-A Frederick, at some point next week, and could return to the Orioles to pitch between June 15 annd June 17, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

KANSAS CITY, MO -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he took Kevin Gausman with him to Kansas City because he and pitching coach Dave Wallace wanted to have a long talk with the club's prized pitching prospect before sending him back to Triple-A Norfolk. Gausman was sent back to Triple-A this afternoon when reliever Evan Meek was recalled from Norfolk. “We made that decision late and I wanted to have a long conversation with Kevin, Dave and I did, as opposed to doing it for five minutes before you get on a plane,” Showalter said.

The flu that hit the Orioles clubhouse last week affected two more players Tuesday. The Orioles sent center fielder Adam Jones and right-handed relief pitcher Evan Meek home from Camden Yards before the game against the Tampa Bay Rays was postponed because of rain. Neither player would have been available if the Orioles and Rays would have played. “From what I understand, it's going on all over,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It's not just in our locker room. Unfortunately, a lot of it is unavoidable other than don't touch or communicate with people all day. That's pretty hard to do in this sport.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Evan Meek's journey from Rule 5 pick, to All-Star reliever, to nonroster spring training invitee has taken its share of wild twists and turns, but the Orioles hope that they've snagged the 30-year-old at just the right time. "A lot of this game is timing, and a lot of this game is the right fit," Meek said. "The comeback trail is a tough one. It was a long time and a tough road back just to get back to the point where I am now. " Earlier this month, the comeback trail led him to Baltimore, where he had a tryout in front of new pitching coach Dave Wallace and new bullpen coach Dom Chiti during the weekend of FanFest, a session that led to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league camp.
