Orioles catcher Matt Wieters still has his right arm in a metal splint after season-ending Tommy John surgery last month. And while he returned to the team for the first time Thursday since surgery, Wieters said he expects to be around the team, and have the splint off, when he rejoins the team for good after the Orioles' West Coast trip following the All-Star break. Before Friday's game, Wieters talked about being back with his teammates, making the All-Star Game and his rehabilitation.

OAKLAND, Calif. - After throwing off a mound for the first time since going on the disabled list with a sprained right ankle, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez could pitch a minor league rehabilitation game by the middle of next week, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday. Jimenez tested his ankle with a bullpen session during the Orioles' post-All-Star-break workout in Oakland on Thursday and was pleased with the progress of his recovery. He will throw another bullpen session Sunday.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain, was tentative while throwing during his workout Sunday and therefore will need a rehab assignment. “Still favoring it a lot, he was trying to protect [the ankle] in his throw,” Showalter said. “So we kind of shortened [the session] up a little bit because it wasn't getting any better, and we didn't want to have a setback. … Obviously, he's got some significance in there that we're going to have to clear up before we can pitch him.” That means Jimenez will not pitch at all for the Orioles during their 10-game road trip to the West Coast to start the second half of the season despite being eligible to come off the DL on July 23. He likely will pitch that day at a minor league affiliate on the East Coast.

Tsuyoshi Wada, who was on the disabled list attempting to rebound from some left elbow soreness which limited his spring, has had his rehab assignment shut down. He will return to Baltimore to meet with doctors and there is no timetable for his return to a game. Wada allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings Thursday in his first rehab game for the Triple-A Norfolk Tides. Afterward he admitted he had been dealing with neck stiffness after sleeping poorly at a hotel. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he wasn't sure if the neck problem was associated with the poor outing, but that the club was considering suspending Wada's rehab assignment.

CHICAGO - Burger King plans to launch a new coffee line as it tries to overhaul its breakfast menu and boost its slumping business. The nation's No. 2 burger chain will add Starbucks Corp.'s Seattle's Best Coffee to all its U.S. restaurants in a phased roll-out that begins this summer, executives said Tuesday. The move takes a page from rival McDonald's Corp.'s success with its line of coffee drinks. - Associated Press

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore had been tracking the migration of North American snowy owls to evaluate their health when one was found injured in Maryland last month. The Department of Natural Resources brought the owl, which had a "severe wing droop and couldn't fly," to the zoo for treatment. After a surgery on its broken wing, the owl is in recovery and eating reliably, as documented in a video (above) detailing the owl's rehabilitation. The zoo's research on the birds is studying an increase in snowy owls in the U.S. that resulted from an irruption in the Arctic's snowy owl population.

Brian Roberts will begin his rehab assignment Wednesday night at Double-A Bowie against Richmond. The Orioles made the announcement a few minutes ago. Roberts (concussion symptoms) has not played since May 16, 2011, against the Boston Red Sox. He likely will play only a few innings Wednesday. He is expected to speak with reporters at 7 p.m. tonight.

Brian Roberts, who hasn't played in a game since injuring his right hamstring on the third day of the season, April 4, made his first rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk. Leading off and playing second base for the Tides against Columbus, Roberts went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Norfolk's come-from-behind, 6-3 win. In the first inning, Roberts hit a double that one-hopped the left field wall. He later scored the game's first run on a Jason Pridie single. Roberts later grounded out, struck out and singled.

Right-hander Bud Norris likely will need to either go on a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment or pitch in a simulated game before returning from the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain. “He won't go from just a side day into starting,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He's getting better. I ask [head athletic trainer] Richie [Bancells] and him every day. He's improving. I don't think he can really tell until he's on the mound.” Norris was believed to have a bullpen session scheduled Wednesday, but he will instead participate in pitcher's fielding practice Thursday and now is set to throw his next bullpen session Friday.

Nolan Reimold has reached the end of his 20-day injury rehabilitation assignment, but the Orioles have yet to decide whether they will designate the outfielder for assignment or add him to the club's 25-man active roster, executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday. Reimold, 30, remains on the 60-day major league disabled list after finishing his rehab stint Sunday. He had been recovering from complications surrounding corrective neck surgery last July. “We're still talking to Nolan and trying to figure out a way to keep him with the ballclub,” Duquette said.

BOWIE -- Nolan Reimold has a reason to be optimistic again. Reimold, who has spent most of the past three seasons clinging to small victories with his health and hoping to eventually put his injury-plagued past behind him, is currently in the final days of a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment with Double-A Bowie. And he said recently that he feels "a lot better. " The 30-year-old outfielder's 20-game rehab assignment window ends Sunday, so the Orioles almost certainly need to find a way to add him to the 25-man roster on Monday to keep him in the organization.

NEW YORK  - One of the first things Orioles manager Buck Showalter said to reporters during his pregame news conference Sunday afternoon was about right-hander Dylan Bundy 's outing for short-season Single-A Aberdeen on Saturday. "Bundy was good last night, huh?" Showalter said. Indeed he was. Bundy, 21, allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out nine in five scoreless innings against Brooklyn. Recovering from elbow ligament surgery last June, he has now allowed one run while walking one and striking out 15 batters in 10 innings in his first two rehab starts for the IronBirds.

Dylan Bundy was the first Saturday night to say he still has work to do before he legitimately can be considered an option for the Orioles' major league club. Making his second rehabilitation start for short-season Single-A Aberdeen, the club's top prospect, working his way back from reconstructive elbow surgery a year ago, was dominant Saturday during a 3-1 loss in 11 innings. He threw five scoreless innings and allowed just two hits against Brooklyn, recording nine strikeouts, including five of the first six batters he faced.

Left-hander Zach Britton took another step toward rejoining the Orioles starting rotation Thursday night, throwing seven strong innings for Double-A Bowie in a 3-2, 14-inning loss at Akron. Britton, making his second minor league rehab start for the Baysox, allowed just two runs (one earned) on five hits through seven innings, striking out five and walking one. Britton threw 92 pitches, 55 of them for strikes, and induced 12 groundouts versus just four fly-ball outs. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Britton, who is rehabbing from left shoulder impingement, will be re-evaluated after Thursday's start.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts will begin an injury-rehab assignment tonight in Aberdeen -- Baltimore's short season Single-A affiliate -- as first reported by MASNsports.com. Roberts has been on the disabled list since July 3 with a labral tear in his right hip, and has been trying to avoid season-ending surgery. Roberts missed time earlier in the year with concussion symptoms, but hit only .182 in his 17 games with the club before injuring his hip. He hasn't played in a game since July 1. He is expected to start at second base tonight for the IronBirds, but it's unclear whether or not he is ready to play in an entire game yet. If Roberts' rehab stint doesn't go according to plan, he is facing surgery that generally carries a 4-6 week recovery time, effectively ending his season.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Catcher Matt Wieters underwent successful Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery, performed by renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, on Tuesday afternoon. Wieters will miss the rest of this season, but the Orioles are hopeful he will be ready to return by Opening Day next year. A position player's estimated recovery time from the surgery is nine months. In the procedure, the palmaris longus tendon on the palm side of his right wrist was removed to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Right-hander Dylan Bundy pitched five innings and allowed one run for short-season Single-A Aberdeen against Hudson Valley on Sunday in his first competitive game since 2012. Bundy, who was the Orioles' first-round draft pick in 2011, underwent Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery last June. He had been limited to simulated games and extended spring training sessions before Sunday, but he's recovering about two weeks ahead of schedule and feels like he could pitch for the Orioles later this year.
