Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who pitched for the Indians from July 2011 through last season, returned to Progressive Field for the first time Friday. “Being in the visitors' clubhouse is kind of weird,” said Jimenez, who left Cleveland for a four-year, $50 million deal with the Orioles in February. “I have to get used to it.” He is slated to start Saturday against the Indians for the second time this year. On May 24 at Camden Yards he lasted just four innings and gave up five earned runs against his old club.

Verlander deserves it Jeff Schuler Morning Call The award isn't for most outstanding player, or player of the year. It's for the most valuable player, and last time I checked, pitchers were players too. Justin Verlander is on the verge of winning pitching's version of the Triple Crown, leading the American League in wins (by five), in strikeouts (by 20) and in ERA. Sixteen of his 24 wins have come after Detroit losses. The argument is that pitchers have their own award.

Don't penalize honesty Bill Shaikin Los Angeles Times Intent can be notoriously difficult to determine — unless, that is, a pitcher admits his intent, as Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels did. "Come see our headhunting pitchers" is not the best advertisement for baseball, so Hamels, like any other pitcher admitting intent, should have been suspended. The league already suspends pitchers deemed to throw at batters with intent, no matter what the pitcher says.

 There may have been rust or jitters or simply a lack of recent familiarity with the American League.  Joe Saunders, however, chalks up his rough Orioles debut on Wednesday to one bad inning - the first, in which he allowed four runs on four hits and a walk.  “You always want to set a good impression your first time,” said Saunders, who was acquired Sunday from Arizona for reliever Matt Lindstrom. “It sucks that that first inning was the first inning. But you've got to turn the page quick and look forward to the next start.” Overall, Saunders, a Northern Virginia native, allowed seven runs (six earned)

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz said he's put last season's struggles behind him and feels he's become a better pitcher having gone through them. Matusz looked impressive in his first public bullpen session Wednesday. Catcher Matt Wieters said it looked like Matusz's mechanics had improved and he regained his 2010 form. “I felt good,” Matusz said. “I felt nice and loose. The ball was coming out of my hand with no effort and it was coming out nice. I feel like the stuff is there.

Orioles batting practice pitcher Rudy Arias will leave the team Thursday to travel to Miami and be sworn in as a United States citizen Friday. Arias, 55, moved to the U.S. from Cuba when he was just a few years old and his father was playing baseball in the states. He grew up in Miami and maintained his Cuban citizenship. “I never felt living in Miami, I needed it,” Arias joked. But when Arias worked for an independent club in Winnipeg a couple years ago he always slowed up the process going across the border - and he was chided by his old manager for that.

Less than two weeks ago, Jason Hammel was ready for spring training in Arizona and preparing for another season in Colorado. On Saturday, Hammel arrived at the Orioles spring training complex in Sarasota - a new player in a new place after Baltimore's Feb. 6 trade of pitcher Jeremy Guthrie. Right-handed reliever Matt Lindstrom also came to the Orioles in the deal. “It was a pretty wild week when it happened, obviously because [it was] a week before spring training,” Hammel said.

Sometimes, the confluence of seemingly unrelated events can squeeze clarity out of coincidence. Take the news Wednesday that the Orioles' top pick from the 2013 draft, Low-A Delmarva right-hander Hunter Harvey, has been shelved for the remainder of the minor league season with an arm injury, which arrived at about the same time speculation surfaced on Twitter that the Orioles were close to a deal for Boston Red Sox ace Jon Lester. Maybe there was some fire under that smoke, and maybe there wasn't.

As the nonwaiver trade deadline approaches Thursday at 4 p.m., the Orioles are focused on acquiring a mid-level starter and a left-handed reliever, as well as a potential upgrade offensively at either second base or catcher. The club has talked to several teams about acquiring a versatile left-hander who could push Brian Matusz into more of a lefty specialist role. Left-handers are hitting .233 against Matusz, while right-handers are batting .308 versus him. Adding another left-handed reliever would make the Orioles' stout bullpen even stronger.

OAKLAND - A few days before the All-Star break, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that there will be several starting pitchers available before the trade deadline who won't be as good at the team's existing six starting pitchers. As the Orioles come out of the break in first place in the AL East, one of Showalter's biggest challenges might be how he manages his six starting pitchers. It won't be as simple as keeping every pitcher in line. He's already started to utilize matchups, slotting right-hander Bud Norris to make his first second-half start in Anaheim (3-0, 0.32 ERA in four career starts against the Angels)

Chris Tillman may not have 11 wins like he did at the midway point last season, but his numbers have been far from disappointing. Including Saturday's loss to the New York Yankees, the Orioles right-hander is 7-5 with a 4.11 ERA going into the All-Star break. Last year, when he was invited to the All-Star Game, his ERA was only a few ticks lower, at 3.95. “I think it bodes well, hopefully for the rest of the season, because he seems to be getting more consistent mechanically as we go,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Last week's deal between the Chicago Cubs and Oakland Athletics, which sent pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for a prospect package that included top 10 prospect Addison Russell, kicked off baseball's trade season in spectacular fashion. This week, we'll go through the Orioles system level by level and highlight players of value who could have new homes by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline if the Orioles want to make a move.   Like the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk, the Orioles Double-A affiliate in Bowie has a handful of valuable players amid a lineup of veteran minor leaguers and organizational filler.

Washington Nationals star pitcher Stephen Strasburg seemed a bit sad about vocal Orioles fans during the Nationals' 8-2, 11-inning loss in Washington last night. "Well, maybe someday it'll be different,” Strasburg, who fanned nine in seven innings but was victimized by a Nelson Cruz home run, said in a video posted by MASN. “But obviously that franchise has been a lot longer than we have. Can't really worry about it too much. Hopefully, our fans travel well after tomorrow. " It's a pretty diplomatic answer from a player who never says much, but his face in the video tells the story.
