CANTON, Ohio -- Jeffrey Hammonds puts a lot of stock in what Bowie Baysox manager Bob Miscik has to say about Hammonds' comeback from last October's knee surgery. And, for now, what Miscik has to say is just what Hammonds wants to hear."He's almost ready," Miscik said. "He's doing everything he needs to do. He came down here to give it [the knee] a good test, and so far he's passed the test."Hammonds is spending time with the Double-A farm team until he is deemed fit to rejoin the Orioles.

He will assist Miscik during batting practice at home games.The move brings Altobelli back into the Orioles family, from which he was banished in May 1985 when then-owner Edward Bennett Williams called him a "cement head" upon firing him. Two seasons earlier, Altobelli had led the Orioles to the World Series championship.

As a youth in San Jose, Calif., Billy Owens idolized Eddie Murray."I followed the Orioles a little bit and Eddie always was the guy," Owens said. "I've watched Eddie since I was 7 or 8. That's why I became a switch-hitter in Little League."I admired his being able to hit from both sides, his quiet nature and his ability to always come through in the clutch. That's what I wanted to be."Owens isn't on Murray's level yet -- not even at Double-A -- but he is taking strides in that direction and Bowie Baysox manager Bob Miscik likes not only his choice of idols, but also Owens' approach to baseball."

He is in rehabilitation at the Orioles' minor-league complex in Florida and is expected back later this month.

Foremost was the phenom (Jimmy Haynes), whose promotion to the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings last week broke up the Double-A Bowie Baysox's Fab Five starting rotation.Then, there were the local favorite (Annapolis-born Rick Forney), the only left-hander and married member (Vaughn Eshelman) and the pitcher who had his day in Baltimore (Scott Klingenbeck).Conversely, the fifth starter, Brian Sackinsky, was a virtual unknown, a 1992 second-round draft choice who had staggered with the Single-A Frederick Keys in his first season and dropped all the way to Rookie ball.
