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.

Injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was in the Orioles' clubhouse Wednesday and promised to return in late October if his teammates make it to World Series. "I'll be back, for sure," said the 21-year-old Machado, who has been in Los Angeles rehabbing since he had surgery on Aug. 27 to repair a partially torn ligament in his right knee. He arrived in Baltimore on Monday and said he will stay for the two games at Camden Yards before leaving Saturday for the club's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla. to continue his rehab.

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.

Manny Machado's decision to have surgery on his right knee already has ended his season, and the timing of the procedure -- and its recovery -- might prevent the third baseman from being with the Orioles through the end of the regular season. Scheduled to have season-ending surgery Wednesday in Los Angeles to repair a partially-torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his right knee, Machado might not be back to support his teammates until a possible postseason game. Machado will fly to the West Coast on Tuesday for the procedure, which will be performed by Los Angeles Dodgers team orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the same doctor who did the same procedure on his left knee last year.

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

Wisconsin transplant Dana Ostrenga has spent the past 14 years on the south side of Baltimore. The 37-year-old NASA scientist lived in Federal Hill and then in Washington Village, also known as Pigtown. When it was time for a change, she didn't want to move far, but she did have a list of requirements. "I wanted a brand-new, turnkey rehab," she said, ticking off the items on her list. "I wanted location, a parking pad, lots of natural light, two stories, a finished basement, three bedrooms, two baths, and I wanted it to be diverse and kid-friendly.

Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, threw a short bullpen session off the half-mound on Monday and looked very comfortable. He appeared to be throwing at about 70 or 80 percent velocity. Wada injured his elbow last spring and is not expected to be major league ready until May or June, but the Orioles are admittedly being very conservative with their projection of his possible return from surgery. Nevertheless, manager Buck Showalter has been very positive about what he believes Wada will be able to contribute to the major league club when he is ready to pitch on a regular basis.

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.

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.

TORONTO -- Before Wednesday's game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter raved about the reports from right-hander Dylan Bundy's start at High-A Frederick on Tuesday, when he threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing just five hits while striking out seven batters and issuing no walks. “It was his best outing,” Showalter said. “He felt great. He threw the ball well, no walks. It was the best outing he's had.” Tuesday's outing was Bundy's sixth with Frederick and his ninth minor league start since returning from last year's Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery.

Not a lot of news coming out of Buck Showalter's Sunday morning news conference, though there were some pretty good off-the-record stories about his days playing in the minors. Here's what you need to know, and I can tell you, heading into Sunday's game: * Nelson Cruz, mired in a 1-for-28 slump, was out of the starting lineup Sunday. Showalter is just giving him a breather. After batting .287 with 28 homers and 74 RBIs in 93 first-half games, Cruz is hitting .105 (6-for-57) with one homer and one RBI in 15 second-half games.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
