The final image of Ryan Freel's time with the Orioles was one of potential tragedy: Freel remaining motionless on the Fenway Park basepaths after being hit in the right side of the head by an errant Justin Masterson pickoff throw during a game on April 20, 2009. Freel had to be helped off the field, stayed overnight in a Boston hotel, was placed on the disabled list with head trauma and never played for the Orioles again -- traded less than three weeks later to the Chicago Cubs for outfielder Joey Gathright.

Remember when the Royals were one of the early feel-good stories? Times certainly have changed and in a hurry for Kansas City, which had lost 10 straight games before it won Saturday and is just 20-48 since May 7. That's not the fault of Zack Greinke, who continues to dominate opposing lineups, leading the American League with a 2.04 ERA. However, he hasn't won since June 28, a result of the Royals scoring just four runs total in his past four starts....

BOSTON - Orioles utility player Ryan Freel met with president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail before Wednesday's game in Texas to discuss his role with the club. Freel, who was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds this offseason in the Ramon Hernandez trade, started in Friday's series opener against the Boston Red Sox, just his second start in 10 games. He acknowledged that he has struggled to adapt to being a full-time reserve. "I'm a very impatient person," said Freel, who entered Friday's game 1-for-9 with three walks.

With three perfect innings Sunday, reliever Danys Baez picked up his first win as an Oriole and first big league victory since July 7, 2006, when he was a Los Angeles Dodger. Signed by the Orioles to a three-year deal in November 2006, Baez suffered through an 0-6 season in 2007 before having elbow surgery that cost him all of last year. "Being in the bullpen, to get a win you have to be lucky," Baez said. "Wins don't mean too much for us. For us, it's holds and saves." Baez entered Sunday's game with two on and no outs, wriggled out of the jam and pitched two more scoreless innings while the Orioles rallied against the Texas Rangers.

They are the two newest faces in the Orioles' organization. Cesar Izturis is a quiet, unassuming, slick-fielding shortstop who has agreed in principle to a two-year deal that will be finalized next week if he passes a team physical. Ryan Freel is a hard-charging Cuban-American infielder-outfielder who was obtained Tuesday in the Ramon Hernandez trade with the Cincinnati Reds and likes talking and joking almost as much as he loves baseball. Their personalities differ, but they share an important trait, according to MASN announcer Buck Martinez.

Orioles reliever Dennis Sarfate might learn Friday that his season, and potentially his career, could be in jeopardy, but suddenly baseball isn't his main concern. " Really, the last couple days I've been kind of ... hanging out with my daughter, taking her for walks," said Sarfate, who is on the disabled list with a circulatory problem. " Baseball is a great game; I am so thankful to God that I have had the opportunity to play it. But my life and my livelihood, me taking care of my family and all that, is definitely more important.
