Second baseman Robert Andino, who was hit in the head by a pitch Friday night, was back in the lineup after passing his final concussion test and getting clearance from the Oriolesmedical staff. He said yesterday that he felt fine and that there would be no emotional carryover into Sunday's series finale. Even if one of the Boston pitchers buzzes one close to him? “I'm not going to do nothing stupid," Andino said. “I can't get suspended or anything like that.” Manager Buck Showalter said before the game that he might reinforce that concept with Andino and the team with the Orioles just 11 days from the end of the regular season and positioned pretty well for at least a wild card berth.

When Chris Tillman was struggling in past years, when he was yo-yoing between Triple-A and the majors and perhaps falling out of favor with the organization's decision makers, the Orioles right-hander never made excuses, always putting the blame on himself. So maybe the flip side should be expected. That after Friday's 6-0 beating of the Boston Red Sox - one in which the Orioles hit four homers, including two by Adam Jones, and rode Tillman's seven shutout innings - the laid-back Californian notched his 13th win of the season and then deflected the credit.

There was a baseball game played on Wednesday night. And if not for the death of Mike Flanagan, Orioles fans would be talking at the water cooler about Robert Andino's barehanded catch against the Twins. Here's the video.

Through the first two months of the Orioles' season, second baseman Ryan Flaherty's reputation hinged much more on his glove than his bat. In 30 games, Flaherty was perfect in the field. At the plate, though, he struggled, starting the year 0-for-17 and batting .133 before being sent down to Triple-A Norfolk on May 18. But after being recalled Wednesday night, Flaherty showed some offensive life, going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in the Orioles' 9-6 comeback win over the Washington Nationals and 1-for-3 with a run in Thursday's 2-0 victory..

Judging from the reaction on Twitter to the Orioles' trade of Robert Andino to the Mariners on Tuesday, many O's fans have a heavy heart over the infielder's departure. Andino will be forever etched in Baltimore baseball lore for getting the game-winning hit in the Orioles' Game 162 win in 2011 over the Red Sox. The game was later nicknamed the “Curse of the Andino” since it played a huge part in Boston missing the postseason. Many fans point to that game as a tonesetter to the team's success this past season.

Orioles second baseman Robert Andino, currently on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain, appears far ahead of schedule in his recovery and could rejoin the team when he is eligible to come off the DL on Tuesday. Andino will begin a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday and play games for the Tides on Sunday and Monday, the club announced before Friday's game. He could join the club for their game Tuesday in New York against the Yankees. That's a switch from what the Orioles had planned hours before Friday's game.

Orioles second baseman Robert Andino, is slated to be activated from the disabled list before Tuesday's game. He said he played in his two minor league rehab games without pain in his left shoulder. “Did a little bit of sliding and everything, swinging hard, ground balls,” Andino said. “No pain, so we'll see how it goes.” Andino said he would test his shoulder in batting practice before Tuesday night's game against the Yankees. Barring a setback, he could return to the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale in the Bronx.

Once the Orioles claimed second baseman Alexi Casilla off waivers from the Minnesota Twins earlier this month, it appeared that Robert Andino's days in an Orioles uniform were numbered. Instead of facing the decision of whether to non-tender Andino by the Nov. 30, the Orioles dealt the veteran infielder to the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Trayvon Robinson. The 25-year-old Robinson adds to the Orioles' outfield depth, and he will likely compete for a fourth outfielder spot this spring.

SEATTLE - Playing against the Orioles has to be viewed as just another game, Seattle Mariners infielder Robert Andino said before the teams' three-game series at Safeco Field kicked off. And then, Monday night, Andino went out and played a key role in beating his old team - hitting an RBI single to give the Mariners a lead they never lost and handling nine balls for outs while starting at second base in Seattle's 6-2 victory. Make no mistake: Andino, whom the Orioles traded to the Mariners this offseason for minor league outfielder Trayvon Robinson, wanted to remind his former organization what it gave up. But you'll never hear him say that.

Second baseman Robert Andino, whom the Orioles traded to the Seattle Mariners in the offseason, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday. The Orioles had a chance to claim Andino - although they would have had to assume what remained on his $1.6 million, 2013 salary - and declined. It was discussed internally, but the Orioles decided to stick with Ryan Flaherty and Alexi Casilla at second base. Flaherty, who had two hits in his recall to the majors Wednesday after batting .133 in his first stint with the Orioles this year, can be sent to the minors.

Trayvon Robinson was on the other side of the Orioles' greatest example of resilience last season. Then an outfielder for the Mariners, he entered Seattle's game against the Orioles on Sept. 18 in the ninth inning. He went on to play another nine innings that night at Safeco Field in a 4-2 Orioles win in 18 innings, the longest of the O's 16 straight extra-inning wins that characterized the team's never-say-die attitude. “I had a couple nightmares about that game,” Robinson said Saturday at FanFest.

Trayvon Robinson, the 25-year-old outfielder the Orioles received in Tuesday's trade with the Seattle Mariners for infielder Robert Andino, is an intriguing player, though the reality is he may never become a big league regular. The Orioles view him as someone who can battle for the fourth spot in the outfield in 2013. Robinson was called a “veritable toolshed” by Baseball America a few years ago as he was climbing up the ranks in the Los Angeles Dodgers system because of his speed-power-defense potential.

Although they weren't splashy moves when made, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette's savviness in scooping up discarded players paid huge dividends during the team's best season in 15 years. For every Nate McLouth, who made the most of his opportunity with a new club, there was a Dontrelle Willis, who didn't pan out with the Orioles. But there's no double that Duquette's aggressiveness in acquiring undervalued commodities was a significant factor in the Orioles' success in 2012.

We've had a lot of questions since the season ended on who will be back next year with the Orioles. We don't have a crystal ball. But I can at least give you a sense - contractually, anyway - where guys are. I may be leaving a few out, but we'll address everyone you are concerned about. Here are the club's unrestricted free agents, meaning they become free agents as soon as the World Series ends and can begin negotiating with teams besides the Orioles on the sixth day after the World Series ends (in between they can only negotiate with the Orioles)
