PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - The scorching afternoon sun shone through Sue Marcoline's roof. Chunks of her ceiling lay in white heaps on the floor. Standing water covered her dining room floor and broken glass littered her living room. Marcoline had one question for Nationwide Insurance President Doug Robinette when he showed up at her home yesterday: How was she to live here again? Her house ravaged by Hurricane Charley, Marcoline, a real estate agent, called a claims adjuster from Nationwide.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The MRI on Rule 5 pick Michael Almanzar's left knee revealed patella tendinitis, which will shelve the young corner infielder for a few days and may require a stint on the 15-day disabled list, according to executive vice president Dan Duquette. Almanzar, 23, injured the knee while playing first base Saturday in Port Charlotte, Fla. If he has to go on the disabled list - and that seems like a possibility, Duquette said - the Orioles won't have to make an immediate roster decision involving Almanazar.

Orioles Rule 5 pick Michael Almanzar is scheduled for a MRI of his left knee Monday afternoon, according to manager Buck Showalter . Showalter said the 23-year-old corner infielder injured his knee while playing first base Saturday in Port Charlotte, Fla., and there has continued to be swelling. The Orioles need to keep Almanzar on the major league roster all season or offer him back to the Boston Red Sox for half of the original $50,000 purchase price. If he started the season on the 15-day disabled list it would buy the Orioles some time and roster flexibility.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles have agreed to terms with former Houston Astros first baseman Brett Wallace on a minor league contract. Wallace was at the Ed Smith Stadium complex this morning taking his physical, and he is expected to report to minor league camp at Twin Lakes Park. The 27-year-old hit .221/.284/.431 with 13 home runs and 36 RBIs for Houston last season. He was released by the Astros 11 days ago after he was invited to camp as a nonroster player and hit just .143 in 14 spring training at-bats.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Wei-Yin Chen became the first Oriole to go four innings this spring and Henry Urrutia's first homer helped contribute to a 2-2 tie with the Minnesota Twins. The Orioles took a 2-1 lead into the ninth, but reliever Troy Patton gave up a solo homer to former Orioles' farmhand Brandon Waring. Because the Twins also had a split squad against Tampa in Port Charlotte on Friday, they didn't have enough pitching to extend the game and the sides agreed to the tie. Chen pitched well, allowing three hits, one walk and one run while striking out three and throwing 60 pitches in four innings.

Delmon Young had two hits in three at-bats and has been swinging a hot bat since the intrasquad games. “When you bring in guys who've been around, they know the gig," Showalter said. “They're not waiting to get their timing. They come in here with that mentality that every day is a chance to make an impression.” The same apparently goes for Steve Pearce, who also had a pair of hits in three at-bats. Though the Orioles signed free agent Nelson Cruz, Showalter said there still is a job to be won for a right-handed hitter.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles will head down to Fort Myers today for their first spring meeting with the Boston Red Sox at JetBlue Park. Left-hander Brian Matusz will start for the Orioles.  He was originally scheduled to fly to Philadelphia to have a wart removed from his left middle finger, but that trip has been postponed because of the expectations of bad weather up north. Matusz said he and the club agreed that it didn't make sense risking a travel delay going up or being postponed coming back to Florida.

The only hit was a one-out double by Yunel Escobar. Tillman struck out David DeJesus, James Loney and Will Myers and got his other three outs on fly balls.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Top position player prospect Jonathan Schoop homered for the second straight day Thursday, hitting a solo homer off Bud Norris in the first inning of the Orioles' second intrasquad game. Schoop's homer was a blast to left-center field that hit the television camera platform well beyond the fence. “Jon's in a good place,” manager Buck Showalter said. “I think Jonathan has had some very good role models [in camp]. Like I've said before, it's a matter of when, not if. That's what we're trying to judge here.

SARASOTA, FLA. - For the players who don't already have their ticket punched for the 25-man major league roster, spring training is about to get real. The Orioles open the Grapefruit League exhibition season Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays in nearby Port Charlotte, and the competition for a small handful of open major league jobs begins in earnest. Of course, manager Buck Showalter would tell you that it's been real for a month now, since just about everything everybody has been doing down here since the four-day January mini-camp is observed and evaluated.
