Eric Roberson saw the writing on the wall early. In the mid-'90s, the soul singer-songwriter was signed to Warner Bros. Records. But after an executive turnover at the label, he was unceremoniously dropped from the roster, and an album he recorded for the company never saw the light of CD shops. Then he landed another major-label deal - this time with Island Records. But the same thing happened: An executive shakedown left him without a contract. Understandably frustrated, Roberson saw only one way to go. "I had a front-row seat to how things happen in the industry," says the artist, who performs Sunday night on Stage B at the African American Heritage Festival in Camden Yards.

Frederick Keys ace right-hander Jake Arrieta took a long, hard look at his glowing statistics this season and said of his chances of being promoted to Baltimore next year: "I think it's going to be hard for them [the Orioles] to keep me in the minor leagues if I keep pitching this well." Arrieta, 6 feet 4 and 225 pounds, is on a roll these days and had every right to be confident after he had shut down the Salem Avalanche on two hits and no runs over seven innings Thursday night. He struck out six and walked three in an 8-0 victory for the Keys.

The Orioles' camp roster is down to 35 players if you don't count guys who are headed to the disabled list (Jim Hoey and Freddie Bynum among them). I'm still including Jay Gibbons, who will miss the first 15 days. Of those 35, you'd figure that pitchers Jon Leicester, Lance Cormier, Jim Johnson and Rocky Cherry, catcher Chris Heintz, infielders Eider Torres and Oscar Salazar and outfielder Chris Roberson are the most vulnerable. Roberson is hitting .321, can run and plays a decent outfield, but is there room for him, Gibbons (once he returns)

Rare gopher ball Orioles reliever Chad Bradford isn't known for surrendering home runs. The submarine stylist has allowed one in each of the past three seasons, so it's unusual to see anyone take him deep, even in an exhibition game, but it happened yesterday. After replacing starter Jeremy Guthrie in the fifth inning and letting two inherited runners score on a Troy Glaus single, Bradford served up a two-run shot to Ryan Ludwick that broke a 4-4 tie. Bradford hadn't allowed a homer in seven innings this spring.

Loewen's high count The Orioles couldn't squeeze more than 2 2/3 innings out of starter Adam Loewen yesterday because of his rising pitch count and ineffectiveness. Loewen didn't allow a run in his first two innings, but he needed a double play to escape a jam in the second. He wasn't as fortunate in the third, when right fielder Jeremy Hermida hit a three-run homer with two outs to break a scoreless tie. Loewen threw 55 pitches, 32 for strikes. His missteps in the third inning included three walks and an infield hit. Rare sightings It took until the 11th exhibition game, but Aubrey Huff finally played in the field after twice serving as the designated hitter.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Chris Roberson played right field in college, and that's where he made his three starts with the Philadelphia Phillies last season. But his first choice with the Orioles would be center field, where he appeared in 106 games at Triple-A Ottawa. Not that Roberson is used to getting everything he wants. Roberson, 28, dresses in the same row of lockers as Nick Markakis and Adam Jones. He knows that if he's going to make the club as a nonroster player, it will likely be as a reserve.

The Orioles added another candidate for center field yesterday, buying the contract of outfielder Chris Roberson from the Philadelphia Phillies. Roberson, 28, is a speedy switch-hitter with little power who spent most of 2007 with the Phillies' Triple-A team in Ottawa, where he hit .266 with four homers and 19 stolen bases in 113 games. Roberson batted .286 (eight hits in 28 at-bats) in two major league call-ups spanning 28 games with the Phillies last season and is a career .232 hitter in 69 big league at-bats.
