OAKLAND, Calif. - After throwing off a mound for the first time since going on the disabled list with a sprained right ankle, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez could pitch a minor league rehabilitation game by the middle of next week, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday.

He will throw another bullpen session Sunday.

Right-handed reliever Matt Lindstrom's minor league outing, his first game action since re-tweaking his hamstring, was quick and effective today. Lindstrom pitched one inning, recording four outs against the Orioles' Triple-A team. He struck out two batters, including Orioles 40-man player Josh Bell. Lindstrom said he went through the first three hitters he faced quickly in about 9-10 pitches. He said he felt his velocity was good and there was no pain in the hamstring, which is in his pushing-off leg. He threw all his pitches, including his split-fingered fastball and his slider.

The Orioles announced their minor league coaching staffs for the 2012 season, most notably making official the hiring of longtime minor league manager Ron Johnson as manager of Triple-A Norfolk. Johnson was the first base coach for the Boston Red Sox the past two seasons. Also of note, the team announced that former Orioles player Mike Bordick, who this month joined MASN as a color analyst, will remain with the organization as special assignment instructor. Ex-Orioles pitcher Scott McGregor, formerly the pitching coach at short-season Single-A Aberdeen, will be the minor league rehabilitation coordinator working out of Sarasota, Fla. Former Orioles pitcher Alan Mills will take over McGregor's spot in Aberdeen.  Former Norfolk manager Gary Allenson will be the manager at Aberdeen.

Lefty Dontrelle Willis, who signed a minor league deal with the Orioles late in the spring, left a game for Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday afternoon after throwing his ninth pitch in relief. Willis told the Virginian-Pilot that he had been dealing with pain since spring training and felt a knot in his forearm from the beginning of his outing Wednesday. “I tweaked my forearm,” Willis told the newspaper. “I've worked hard. Maybe it's overuse. " Given the fact he is trying to become a reliever and make a new team, Willis called the setback “frustrating, especially in the new position I'm in.” Willis was examined by the club's trainer, and the injury does not seem to be too serious.

The team has signed journeyman right-hander Eun Chul Choi to a minor league contract, Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette confirmed Friday. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Choi is a mostly unknown commodity. He pitched in the in Veracruz Winter League in Mexico last offseason.

The Orioles' plan all along was to let Kevin Gausman loose in the second half of this season. It took some rigid discipline - limiting his innings and pitch counts earlier this year - in order to preserve him for the stretch run. It also included some unpopular roster moves as the right-hander shuttled back and forth to the minor leagues. When the Orioles needed an extra relief pitcher, Gausman usually was the player sent to manager Buck Showalter's office to be told he was being optioned.

Catcher Chance Sisco and right-hander Jon Keller, both of Low-A Delmarva, earned Orioles Player and Pitcher of the Month honors for June, respectively, the Shorebirds announced Tuesday. Sisco, the Orioles' second-round pick last year, hit .404 with eight doubles, a home run, and 19 RBIs in 24 June games, good for a 1.004 OPS. Sisco overcame a slow start -- he hit .245 in April -- to raise his average to a league-leading .353, thanks to his hot June and .411/.441/.589 line in 13 games this month.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones' decision to participate in Monday's Home Run Derby at Target Field in Minneapolis came down to one simple criterion. “I wanted to do it,” Jones said Wednesday. Jones will join captain Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays, Yoenis Cespedes of the Oakland Athletics and Brian Dozier of the Minnesota Twins in representing the American League. One other AL competitor will be added Thursday. Under this year's new bracket format, the AL winner will face the best National League performer in a final, head-to-head round to determine a champion.

Nolan Reimold has reached the end of his 20-day injury rehabilitation assignment, but the Orioles have yet to decide whether they will designate the outfielder for assignment or add him to the club's 25-man active roster, executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday. Reimold, 30, remains on the 60-day major league disabled list after finishing his rehab stint Sunday. He had been recovering from complications surrounding corrective neck surgery last July. “We're still talking to Nolan and trying to figure out a way to keep him with the ballclub,” Duquette said.

BOWIE -- Nolan Reimold has a reason to be optimistic again. Reimold, who has spent most of the past three seasons clinging to small victories with his health and hoping to eventually put his injury-plagued past behind him, is currently in the final days of a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment with Double-A Bowie. And he said recently that he feels "a lot better. " The 30-year-old outfielder's 20-game rehab assignment window ends Sunday, so the Orioles almost certainly need to find a way to add him to the 25-man roster on Monday to keep him in the organization.

Wolf pitched five games and made two starts for the Orioles in 2012 before tearing a ligament in his elbow. He sat out all of last season with his second Tommy John surgery, but he made a comeback this year, going 1-3 with a 5.26 ERA in six games (four starts) with the Miami Marlins. He was designated for assignment Monday by the Marlins and granted free agency Wednesday.

The Orioles have traded minor-league left-hander Cole McCurry to the Braves, reportedly for cash. McCurry was 0-7 with a 6.10 ERA in 51 2/3 innings this season, mostly at Double-A Bowie, but had joined Triple-A Norfolk to work two outing in relief. Six days ago, when the Orioles added 49-year-old left-hander Jamie Moyer to Norfolk's roster, McCurry was assigned to short-season Class-A Aberdeen. On Saturday morning, McCurry -- a 43rd-round selection of the Orioles in 2007 -- acknowledged the trade on Twitter, saying, "Would like to thank the orioles for the opportunity.
