Manny Ramirez made contact, and Mike Johnson made like a statue, staring straight ahead as another homer seemingly had given his manager another reason to consider making a change in the Orioles' rotation.A change is coming, but not because of the rookie's ineffectiveness. With a day off approaching Thursday, manager Davey Johnson won't need to use a fifth starter, which means Mike Johnson goes to the bullpen. But he'll be back in the rotation, along with Shawn Boskie, when the club plays at Boston on June 10-12.

On the field: The Orioles lost for only the fifth time this season when scoring four runs or more. They are 24-5 in such games. The loss also left the bullpen with eight losses compared to seven for the starting rotation.In the dugout: Orioles interim manager Rick Down had Brian Williams loose in the second inning but opted for Arthur Rhodes when he pulled starter Mike Johnson after three. The struggling Rhodes and Terry Mathews allowed a combined six hits, four walks and four earned runs in 2 2/3 innings.

Not only will right-hander Mike Mussina miss just one start because of a bone spur in his right elbow, but he also apparently will be moving up a day in the rotation. The Orioles said yesterday that Mussina will pitch Sunday in Texas, with left-hander Jimmy Key being pushed back to Monday.The changes were caused by Mussina's improved condition and Tuesday's postponement. Key would have been working on three days' rest.There was concern in the organization that Mussina might not be ready by the weekend, but manager Davey Johnson said, "Mike had a great comeback.

Anyone who has seen Eric Davis walking through the clubhouse with an ice pack wrapped around his left shoulder knows the Orioles' right fielder isn't at peak health. But watching him play makes it easy to forget.Davis was up to his old tricks yesterday, going 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored, an RBI and two stolen bases in an 11-0 victory. He delivered the Orioles' first run with a double to left-center, and his two steals led to two more.Davis raised his average to .368 and his RBI total to 18. And he did so less than a week after missing two games in Minnesota because of the flu and the lingering effects of a strained left shoulder.

Mike Johnson didn't find out he had been added to the Orioles' rotation until he walked into the clubhouse yesterday morning and was told by pitching coach Ray Miller. After the news had sunk in, the Rule 5 draftee had to get ready to take the field. Calling his parents in Edmonton, Alberta, wouldn't come until later.Johnson, 21, who pitched for Single-A Hagerstown last year, has taken Rocky Coppinger's place in the rotation and will start Wednesday in Anaheim. Coppinger was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after Saturday's game.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The countdown to Opening Day has reached one week, and the Orioles are coming into focus.The rotation is set, and, barring a trade, so is the bullpen. There's some excess on the pitching staff and in the outfield, which leaves the infield a little thinner than manager Davey Johnson would like. But these are worries that most organizations gladly would bear.Talk of the Orioles this spring usually starts with pitching, which seems a good place to begin breaking them down.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Mike Johnson should be wide-eyed and slack-jawed.He's only 21 years old, and looks every bit of it. He's a skinny right-hander who last year was pitching in the Single-A South Atlantic League, in the Toronto Blue Jays' organization.About six months ago, he was taking on a team from Greensboro on a steamy August night. By April 1, he could be taking up room in the Orioles' bullpen.And, by all appearances, he isn't fazed in the least.Johnson is a Rule 5 draftee who must remain on the Orioles' 25-man roster throughout the year or be offered back to Toronto for $25,000.
