She probably could have done it years ago, but the timing seems perfect now. Singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of rock 'n' roll king Elvis Presley, has finally connected her musical skills with those of her legendary father. On "In the Ghetto," a "departed duet" in the vein of Natalie Cole's 1991 Grammy winner "Unforgettable," Presley adds her vocals to a slightly reconfigured version of Elvis' famed 1969 recording. The song and video were released this week to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Elvis' death, and all proceeds from the project will benefit a new Presley Place transitional housing campus in New Orleans, one of the late singer's favorite cities.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Friday's game that left-hander Brian Matusz and hitting coach Jim Presley were fighting flu-type symptoms. Presley was sent home; Matusz never made it to the ballpark. “We've got his bug going around,” Showalter said. “It's taken about two guys out a day, seems like.” Showalter made it sound like Matusz had already visited the hospital and might have to stay there -- and that he might not be available Saturday. “I'm not sure about Brian Matusz's status [Saturday]

DETROIT - Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley made a point to talk to infielder Ryan Flaherty on Friday afternoon after watching Flaherty strike out three times against the Detroit Tigers. Flaherty so badly was trying to get a single, to get his first hit of the season, that he had lost focus on just hitting the ball hard somewhere, Presley said. He wanted to remind one of his hardest-working pupils to relax and not get too discouraged. "When you start thinking about base hits, you kind of get yourself in trouble," Presley said.

The American League Most Valuable Player award will be announced tonight at 6 p.m. on MLB Network, and one person in the Orioles organization knows two of the finalists -- Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Orioles first baseman Chris Davis -- very well. Few coaches have worked with both sluggers as closely as Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley, who was Cabrera's hitting coach with the Florida Marlins in 2006 and 2007 before he was dealt to the Tigers. Presley, who completed his third season as Orioles hitting coach in 2013, has also worked with Davis and has played an instrumental role in Davis blossoming into one of the game's top power hitters this season.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Reimold is having his back examined in Baltimore today. Showalter told MLB Network Radio this morning that Reimold is feeling tingling in his fingertips, which likely is related to the neck issues/spasms that have cost him several games this season.

With his early-season slump deepening and outside criticism of his offense growing by the day, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters turned to the videotape to try to get some positive reinforcement. What he and first-year Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley found instead was a reminder of a time when Wieters felt a lot more comfortable at the plate than he has recently. "I went back and watched some tapes from '09 and some earlier times in my career, and I think I got a little bit spread out," Wieters said.

When Adam Jones was asked recently about the differences between new hitting coach Jim Presley and his former one, Terry Crowley, the Orioles center fielder inadvertently threw a jab cushioned by the highest form of flattery. "Presley is Crow," Jones quipped. "He's just 30 years younger. " To be fair, Crowley, 64, is only 15 years older than Presley. The important part of Jones' declaration, however, is the apparently seamless transition from one of the most tenured coaches in club history to a man with a wealth of experience but a fairly low profile.

Since the mid-19th century, a beloved carol about the Three Wise Men has celebrated a "King forever, ceasing never/over us all to reign. " That might not be exactly the way plenty of otherwise-normal human beings still feel about Elvis Aron Presley 33 years after his death, but it's within shouting distance. Especially at the time of year the singer known as the King of Rock loved most. "Elvis was a big Christmas freak," says Jed Duvall, a Presley impersonator who will share a Glen Burnie stage with two fellow professionals this weekend in a show titled, whimsically enough, "The 3 Kings of Christmas.
