NEW YORK - Normally a move involving the 25th player on the roster has limited impact on a team's psyche, but with their final transaction of the spring, the Orioles made a rather abrupt change in course. When they claimed young shortstop Jose Morban off waivers from the Minnesota Twins on Friday and jettisoned veteran utility infielder Jeff Reboulet, the focus seemed to shift beyond this season. After leaning toward experience with their moves heading into camp - signing Reboulet, B.J. Surhoff, Rick Helling and John Valentin - the Orioles placed an emphasis on youth.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Utility man Jeff Reboulet has filled in admirably for injured second baseman Roberto Alomar. He had a single, a double and reached base four times yesterday, and now has seven hits in 14 at-bats since taking over when Alomar went on the disabled list Wednesday with a groin strain."

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - At 8:30 a.m. yesterday, the Orioles tentatively set their roster for Opening Day by placing John Valentin on waivers and retaining Jeff Reboulet and Jose Leon as their utility infielders. About seven hours later, it was much firmer - and missing Reboulet. The Orioles claimed shortstop Jose Morban off waivers from the Minnesota Twins and released Reboulet, who was running sprints in the outfield during the ninth inning when summoned into the manager's office. Reboulet was told in the morning that he was part of the 25-man roster, but circumstances might force a change.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The most convincing testimonial to the value of utility infielder Jeff Reboulet comes from an unusual source -- the manager of the team that chose not to re-sign him.Reboulet wanted to return to the Minnesota Twins this year, but when it became apparent that he would not get that chance, he signed with the Orioles, and probably will fill in for suspended second baseman Roberto Alomar in the Opening Day lineup.Twins manager Tom Kelly did not openly question the organizational decision to let him go, but he clearly appreciated the contribution Reboulet made to his team.

MIAMI -- Infielder Jeff Reboulet was available to play last night after receiving treatment for some tightness in his right hamstring.Victimized by the sloppy field conditions during Tuesday's doubleheader at Pro Player Stadium, Reboulet pulled up as he beat out a bunt in the eighth inning of the nightcap. He grabbed at the back of his leg and bent over at the bag as trainer Richie Bancells rushed from the dugout. Reboulet stayed in the game and received treatment afterward."I think it was more of a cramp first and then I kind of strained it," he said before sitting out last night's win. "It started out like a cramp because it was tight all around and I felt it pull a little.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- No longer a spring picture of health, the Orioles will do without left fielder B. J. Surhoff for at least the next several days after he was diagnosed with a sprained ring finger on his right hand. Surhoff sustained the injury diving back to first base in Saturday's exhibition opener. He has been told by team trainers to refrain from throwing or swinging a bat.Surhoff classified the injury as "not a huge deal" and left the clubhouse with his middle two fingers taped.

The Orioles are expected to activate second baseman Delino DeShields from the disabled list in time for today's game. To make room on the 25-man roster, they apparently must choose between sending down rookie Jesse Garcia or placing Jeff Reboulet on the DL.DeShields was eligible to come off yesterday, but club officials decided he would benefit from playing a second game at Double-A Bowie, especially in the field. His progress was hampered Friday by a nearly two-hour rain delay and sloppy conditions.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Jeff Reboulet soaked in the whirlpool that's outside the shower area in the Orioles' clubhouse as players arrived for a recent workout and exhibition game. Hitting coach Terry Crowley leaned on an equipment trunk as he held a long conversation with the veteran infielder. The moment provided a clear snapshot of Reboulet's spring training. He sought the hot water treatment for an aching left leg, and he wanted a consultation with Crowley to assist in ending his slump. Still fighting for a utility job, Reboulet is batting .133 in 19 games after bouncing to the mound yesterday in his only plate appearance.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The large purple bruise on John Valentin's left arm looks pretty bad, until you notice the bigger one on his thigh. It seems to be spreading a little more each day. "They're almost matching," he said. Signed to a minor-league contract on Jan. 29, Valentin is trying to go north with the Orioles as their utility infielder. To him, that's a better match - a proven veteran hitter who plays multiple positions on a club that needs his offensive skills and versatility.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Chris Richard is a new husband and a homeowner. That part of his life is complete. It's the baseball aspect that still lies in pieces. Richard is trying to fit into the Orioles' crowded outfield, and numbers aren't the only deterrent. He still hasn't regained full range of motion in his left shoulder after arthroscopic surgery last winter to reattach the capsule and clean some fraying in the rotator cuff. Though finally able to throw, something he couldn't do after returning to the lineup July 31, Richard said he continues to experience some mild discomfort.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - What a surreal scene it was earlier this week as Jeff Reboulet and B.J. Surhoff, equipment bags in hand, trudged through the parking lot on their way to the Orioles' spring training clubhouse. Two links to the recent past, when losing seasons weren't the norm, attaching themselves to a rusted chain. Surhoff's arrival played out for two weeks, with his workouts at Camden Yards and ongoing negotiations made public, but Reboulet seemed to appear out of nowhere. Never one to get much notice - utility infielders tend to keep a lower profile - maybe this was appropriate for him. The first segment of Reboulet's career with the Orioles began in 1997, the last year they made the playoffs before five consecutive fourth-place finishes.

The Orioles made some more minor moves yesterday, hoping their fan base understands some major possibilities are developing behind the scenes. Already impressed with B.J. Surhoff in his recent workouts, the club took another trip down memory lane, signing utility infielder Jeff Reboulet to a minor-league contract. They also signed former Boston Red Sox infielder John Valentin to a minor-league deal. Reboulet and Valentin received invitations to spring training, where they will compete for one of the final spots on the club's Opening Day roster.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Reserve catcher Greg Myers has made good progress in his recovery from a severe hamstring strain and could come off the 15-day disabled list when the Orioles open their second homestand of the season on Monday at Camden Yards. Myers worked out with the training staff again yesterday and performed well enough for trainer Richie Bancells to project that he could be ready the first day he becomes eligible to leave the DL. "He went through some functional testing today and did well," manager Mike Hargrove said.

JUPITER, Fla. -- Orioles manager Mike Hargrove has said he's hopeful of making the last of his roster decisions by Thursday, when the club finishes the Florida portion of its spring schedule. He'd like to know his fifth starter by then, as well as the composition of his bullpen. And there's the matter of settling on a utility infielder, a task that didn't appear as complicated a few weeks ago. When Jeff Reboulet was traded to the Kansas City Royals during the winter meetings, Jesus Garcia clutched the baton.

Each time it appears that Jesse Garcia's professional life is coming into focus, the lines begin to blur. Each time the path seems straight and uncluttered, he must navigate a few bumpy curves. So far, he has yet to be tripped up. Compile an impressive record as an amateur boxer, then heed baseball's calling. Field almost as many plaudits for defensive excellence as ground balls, then switch positions. See yourself as a starter at the major-league level, then prepare for life in a utility role.
