After six rocky years, which included a multi-million-dollar signing bonus, several position changes and a drug suspension, the Orioles will be cutting ties with former first-round pick Billy Rowell. Rowell, the ninth overall selection in the 2006 draft, can become a minor league free agent as soon as the World Series ends, and the Orioles will not make him an offer to return, according to an industry source. It will put the final exclamation point on what is arguably the biggest draft bust in franchise history.

The odyssey of Billy Rowell took another strange turn Monday when Major League Baseball announced that the Orioles' first-round pick in 2006 has been suspended for 50 games for his second violation of the minor league's drug testing and prevention program. Rowell, 23, tested positive for a “drug of abuse,” MLB stated in a news release Monday. The specific drug is not revealed. He had been in Sarasota attempting to become a pitcher after six seasons as an infielder/outfielder in which he batted a collective .261 and never played above Double-A Bowie.

Evan Longoria and Tim Lincecum have been major league All-Stars. Pitchers Luke Hochevar, Greg Reynolds, Brandon Morrow, Andrew Miller and Clayton Kershaw made their big league debuts months ago. Billy Rowell, who also was selected in the top 10 of that 2006 draft, is currently the third baseman for the Frederick Keys, the Orioles' Single-A affiliate. And Rowell doesn't hesitate in saying, "I'm in a real good situation now. "Those guys are a lot older," Rowell said Saturday before the Keys' 6-4 victory over Kinston.

One thing Billy Rowell will not lack is confidence. That was obvious yesterday when the Orioles' first-round draft choice formally became a professional with the signing of his first contract at the warehouse at Camden Yards. "I expect a lot of special things out of myself," Rowell said in response to a question. "You don't know what's going to happen, but three years would be good [for becoming an Oriole]." Rowell, the ninth overall selection in last month's draft, batted .507 during his four-year career at Bishop Eustace Preparatory School in Pennsauken, N.J., including .571 as a senior.

ATLANTA -- After about three weeks of negotiations, the Orioles came to terms yesterday with Bill Rowell, their first-round pick and the No. 9 selection overall in the 2006 baseball amateur draft. Rowell, a power-hitting infielder from Bishop Eustace Prep in New Jersey, turned down a scholarship offer from Alabama and agreed to a $2.1 million signing bonus with the Orioles. It is $100,000 more than the deal the No. 8 pick, University of Texas outfielder Drew Stubbs, signed with the Cincinnati Reds.

TORONTO -- The Orioles are close to signing 2006 first-round draft pick Bill Rowell and a deal could be announced early next week when the club returns from its road trip. Rowell, an infielder from Bishop Eustace Preparatory School in New Jersey, was the ninth overall selection in last week's draft. The deal will likely be slightly less than the $2 million contract that Drew Stubbs, the No. 8 overall pick, is expected to sign with the Cincinnati Reds. "We're close," Orioles scouting director Joe Jordan said.

While this year's top draft pick, catcher Matt Wieters, continues to work out with the Aberdeen IronBirds before playing in Hawaii later this month, the Orioles' first selection in 2006 is concluding a season that started late but had decent results. Third baseman Bill Rowell was batting .273 in 89 games at Single-A Delmarva before yesterday, with 21 doubles, three triples, eight homers, 56 RBIs and a .422 slugging percentage. He hit safely in five of seven games. Rowell was trying to make up for lost time after a strained oblique muscle kept him at extended spring training.

If you are traveling the roads of western Howard County some pleasant fall morning, there's a chance you'll spot a bicyclist who seems to be going rather fast for the amount of exertion he's putting into his pedaling. Meet Daniel Rowell, an intrepid commuter who regularly makes the roughly 22-mile journey from his North Laurel home to his Sykesville workplace aboard his $8,000 Optibike — a hybrid electric bicycle that supplements pedal power with a battery-driven engine. Rowell is one of a small band of long-distance commuters who regularly leave cars at home and hop aboard electric bikes.

The Orioles on Friday added three prospects to their 40-man roster, including their minor league pitcher and player of the year, but did not protect 2006 first-round pick Billy Rowell. That means that Rowell, a 22-year-old infielder who was picked ninth overall in 2006, one slot ahead of two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum, will be available to other teams in next month's Rule 5 draft. However, it's unlikely that Rowell will be picked as Rule 5 selections have to be kept on the acquiring team's 25-man roster for the entire season or be offered back to their original club.

Billy Rowell is deep in thought, gazing intently into his locker at Harry Grove Stadium. Is he contemplating his future, once considered the brightest in the Orioles organization but now clouded considerably in his third straight year with the Frederick Keys, the club's high Single-A affiliate? Is he thinking about his past, when he wowed scouts with a high school power display that earned him a $2.1 million signing bonus as the Orioles' first-round pick in 2006? "I need to get Muscle Milk," Rowell recounted later.

The Orioles' No. 1 pick in this year's draft, third baseman Bill Rowell, is expected to agree to terms during the next homestand. The team continues to hold discussions with agent Gregg Clifton, who also represents Kris Benson and B.J. Surhoff. One team official said Rowell is "ready to go" and just waiting to sign. Dean Albany, who scouted Rowell, said the infielder reminds him of Mark Teixeira. "He hits them just like [Teixeira] used to hit them," Albany said. Rowell seems to be the total package.

Bill Rowell, who quickly emerged as one of the Orioles' top prospects after being taken with the ninth overall pick in last year's draft, is nearing his first at-bats of the 2007 season. Rowell remains at extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla., the only competition he's had because of a strained oblique muscle. He could be assigned to low Single-A Delmarva later this week because of the significant progress he's making. "He's doing real well, from everything I hear," said Dean Albany, the scout who signed Rowell.
