KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Even if the Orioles end up losing to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series this week, there's a sense that the experience itself will help the club going forward - especially for the younger players who didn't participate in the 2012 postseason. "It's huge, especially because I hope we are back here next year and the near future, and hopefully I am starting one of these games," rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman said. "Any time you have success in the postseason, it definitely helps, not only yourself but your confidence level and also says a lot about your career.

NEW YORK -- Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez had a special gift for rookie Kevin Gausman on Friday at Yankee Stadium: a new Rolex watch. It was payment for uniform No. 31, which Gausman switched to in the offseason after Dave Wallace joined the club. When Jimenez signed this winter he wanted either No. 30 - which Tillman had - or 31, which was Gausman's. Orioles equipment manager Chris Guth asked Gausman if he would give up his number, and the rookie agreed. Gausman then chose No. 39, which had been Jason Hammel's number.

TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

No one should get too drippy or nostalgic over the news that Rookie's Market is closing in downtown Annapolis after 45 years. (No, Mayor Al Hopkins, not even you.)First of all, old-fashioned soup-to-nuts markets with 4,000 square feet of floor space don't exist in the countryside anymore, much less in a small city. And, second, Annapolis, with its teeming tourist market, can be fairly certain that a gourmet shop or some such venue will take Rookie's place.Dennis Lowman, 47, the owner, said he was simply tired of the 12-hour days.

As Joe Flacco scanned the field in the final seconds of Sunday's 29-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings, he was not thinking about the pedigrees or the paychecks of the pass-catchers he could potentially throw to. If he did, he might have targeted Torrey Smith, the former second-round pick who is leading the team in receptions, or Ray Rice, the high-paid former Pro Bowl running back who had lined up in the backfield. No, in one of the biggest moments of the season, Flacco threw it up to the open guy -- who just so happened to be an undrafted rookie free agent out of Georgia who was a relative unknown six months ago . Asked Wednesday about throwing to an undrafted rookie in that critical spot, Flacco responded, “I'm not thinking back there, 'Who is in this position?

Ravens running back Ray Rice has never been to an NFL game. That will change tomorrow night, when the rookie from Rutgers makes his professional debut against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass. That Rice will be starting in place of Willis McGahee, who remains sidelined with a knee injury, only adds to the excitement for the team's second-round draft pick. But the excitement should not be misinterpreted as being intimidated. "I'm ready. I'm in great shape," Rice said yesterday after the team's morning workout at McDaniel College in Westminster.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals love their rookies. Rookie goalie Jim Carey kept them in yesterday's game with the Tampa Bay Lightning early on, and rookie center Kevin Kaminski's first NHL goal turned out to be the game-winner in the second period, as the Capitals stretched their unbeaten streak to six games.When playmaker Joe Juneau scored while flat on his belly with 2:57 to play, it was icing for the Capitals, who skated off with a 3-1 win and a tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Baltimore Stallions are only in their second year, but they already are establishing a tradition of developing quality rookies.Last season linebacker Matt Goodwin was named Most Outstanding Rookie in the CFL and yesterday rookie defensive tackle Demetrious Maxie was named the CFL's Lineman of the Week.Maxie was filling in for the injured Robert Presbury, who will return to action for Saturday's game against Toronto. So, despite Maxie's eight-tackle performance last Saturday against Memphis, including one stop on a goal-line stand in the fourth quarter, the 6-foot-3, 265-pound tackle was returned to the practice roster and will not play this weekend.

With an expertly timed delayed blitz late in the first quarter Sunday, Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley shot through a gap in the Indianapolis Colts' offensive line. As quarterback Andrew Luck wound up, Mosley crushed him, popping the football into the air and into the arms of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for an interception. It wasn't the only impactful play the first-round draft pick and reigning Butkus Award winner delivered during the Ravens' 20-13 road loss Sunday.

INDIANAPOLIS -- When the Ravens drafted rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley out of Alabama, this was the kind of performance they envisioned from the former Butkus Award winner and consensus All-American. Mosley was all over the field in a losing cause against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. He routinely chased down running backs in pursuit and also recorded his first NFL interception in a 20-13 defeat at Lucas Oil Stadium. “I think he played phenomenal,” said outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.

After faring well in his first NFL start last week, Ravens left tackle James Hurst acknowledged that Sunday's game against the Colts will provide a different challenge because of the communication issues that traditionally come into play for an offensive line on the road. Hurst, though, takes some comfort in that he'll be quite familiar with his surroundings. The undrafted free agent, who made the team out of training camp and then was elevated into a starting role when Eugene Monroe had knee surgery, grew up in Plainfield, Ind., and has attended “countless” games at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce can take his time healing his injured quadriceps. He can hang out in the whirlpool and get a couple of deep tissue massages. Get some more ultrasound treatments. If he wants, take another week or two off. I'm a supporter of the big back club and the Ravens have two of them in rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro (226 pounds) and, when he returns, in Pierce (230 pounds). Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis made a believer out of me. A team can have a home-run hitter at tailback, but there is nothing more demoralizing in football than a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 230-pound running back shoving the ball down your throat.

Led by guards Kelechi Osemele and Marshal Yanda and featuring undrafted rookie James Hurst at left tackle, the Ravens' offensive line held its opponent without a sack for the third straight game and paved the way for another strong performance by the team's running backs. The five-man line, which features only Yanda in the same role as he played last year, has become a strength for the team after spending 2013 as the offense's scapegoat. "It's been really good," quarterback Joe Flacco said after Sunday's 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers.

The Ravens made it official, ruling out rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and offensive tackle Eugene Monroe for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Jernigan has a meniscus injury and did not practice all week. Monroe had arthroscopic knee surgery and could be sidelined for at least a few games. Meanwhile, veteran defensive end Chris Canty is questionable after not practicing all week due to knee and calf injuries. He's regarded as a game-time decision and the Ravens could start DeAngelo Tyson in his place.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.

On the opposite sideline Sunday, he'll cross paths with Panthers star Luke Kuechly, the 2013 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year and the new standard for the athletic, three-down linebacker Mosley hopes to become. “[He's] one of the guys that can move around, make plays in the coverage and move sideline to sideline,” Mosley said. “Watching him at Boston College when I was at Alabama, then after he came out … [he made]
