The Orioles added to their expanded roster Tuesday by activating left-hander T.J. McFarland and catcher Steve Clevenger from short-season Single-A Aberdeen -- they were there since Sunday for roster management reasons -- and right-hander Ryan Webb and outfielder Quintin Berry from Triple-A Norfolk. Webb had been with the Orioles all season, but he was sent down to Norfolk on Aug. 1 because the club needed to make room for newly acquired left-hander Andrew Miller. Webb was solid for the Orioles -- 3-2, 3.80 ERA in 42 games before the demotion -- but he had a minor league option remaining, making him the temporary odd man out. “It was a surprise.

Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen, who will get Monday's Game 3 start, said through an interpreter that he's not considering the importance of the game or where it might rank in his career. “For me, I want to keep it simple. It doesn't matter to me whether we're ahead or behind,” said Chen, who hasn't pitched since allowing five runs in 3 2/3 innings on Oct. 3 in Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Tigers. “My job is to go out and pitch a good game. It doesn't change whether it's 0-2 or 2-0.” There are two things in Chen's favor heading into Monday night.

The Orioles have added another reliever to the roster, agreeing to a two-year, $4.5 million deal with right-hander Ryan Webb, according to an industry source. Webb, 27, is scheduled for a physical early next week and the deal will become official once he passes the examination. A 6-foot-6, 250-pound sinkerballer, Webb was 2-6 with a 2.91 ERA in 66 games last year for the Miami Marlins, who did not tender him a contract last week. An industry source said Webb, a Clearwater, Fla., native, had multiple two-year deals before agreeing with the Orioles.

We are going to get the bar going a lot in the next few weeks. There will be lots of things to discuss. Lots of predictions for you to share. Much has been made about what the Orioles' roster for the American League Division Series will look like. I'd imagine we'll know at some point today, though Buck Showalter doesn't have to submit it until Thursday morning. Honestly, I think it's pretty set. To me there are only two spots that are unclear. That's because I believe Kelly Johnson, T.J. McFarland and David Lough are going to make the roster.

The Orioles will make a number of moves when rosters expand Monday, including recalling at least two pitchers from Triple-A Norfolk. The club is expected to add right-hander Ryan Webb and left-hander Joe Saunders from the Tides to give the team additional bullpen depth. Despite being a key part of the Orioles bullpen all season, Webb was optioned to Norfolk on Aug. 1. He was 0-2 with a 4.76 ERA in 11 games (11 1/3 innings) at Norfolk. In 42 2/3 innings with the Orioles this year, Webb has a 3-2 record and a 3.80 ERA. Saunders, a former Orioles starter who was signed to a minor league deal Aug. 5, had a 1.50 ERA in 12 innings for Norfolk while working as a multiple-inning reliever.

SARASOTA, Fla. - When the Orioles signed right-handed relief pitcher Ryan Webb in December, executive vice president Dan Duquette quickly compared him to Jim Johnson, who had been traded earlier that month. And while the comparison wasn't necessarily fair since the departed Johnson had compiled back-to-back 50-save seasons before he was dealt to the Oakland Athletics, both possess heavy sinkers that can lead to early contact and quick outs, which can be valuable while pitching in critical late-inning situations in the American League East.

Based on the way the first five battles between the Orioles and Los Angeles Angels had played out, there was little question the season-series finale was going to possess its share of drama. So how about a scoreless tie that stretched into the 13th inning before the Angels finally cracked the Orioles' stubborn bullpen and avoided a sweep? Throw in a potential no-hitter that was thwarted by injury and you had just another ho-hum affair between two evenly matched clubs that could end up clashing again in the postseason.

The Orioles officially announced the one-year signing of 25-year-old outfielder Francisco Peguero on Saturday morning. Peguero hit .200 in 45 at-bats with the San Francisco Giants in the past two seasons, but is a .306 career hitter in the minors and had been considered one of the Giants better prospects over the years. He has been a center fielder but can play left or right and should be in the mix for a roster spot this spring. Here's executive vice president Dan Duquette on Peguero: “I like this kid we signed, Peguero.

SARASOTA, FLA. -- Orioles top position player prospect Jonathan Schoop made a quick impression today in the team's first intrasquad game. Schoop hit a two-run homer to left field on the first pitch he saw from right-hander Steve Johnson in the top of the second inning to give the visiting team a 2-0 lead. Schoop's blast landed in the left field picnic area, a common landing spot for home run balls during spring training because of the wind that routinely blows out to left field.

TORONTO -- After working out for the Orioles at the club's spring training complex Monday, former closer Jim Johnson signed a minor league deal with the Detroit Tigers, according to an industry source. The Orioles also offered Johnson a minor-league deal, which included an out clause that would have given Johnson the opportunity to go elsewhere if he wasn't brought to the major leagues when rosters expand in September. The Orioles' bullpen didn't currently have a spot open for Johnson.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.   - Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been coy in recent days about the availability of his late-inning arms, but before Friday night's series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays, he disclosed that five of his relievers wouldn't be available. Later Friday, that would put the fate of a scoreless game in the hands of recently recalled relievers who joined the club when rosters expanded earlier this week. And the Orioles bullpen, devoid of many of the arms they would turn to in a tight game, allowed three runs in the eighth inning of an eventual 3-0 before an announced 14,632 at Tropicana Field.

The Orioles added a pair of relievers Monday, the first day of expanded rosters, as they recalled right-hander Evan Meek from Triple-A Norfolk and purchased the contract of left-hander Joe Saunders from the Tides. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club initially planned to just add Saunders on Monday, but he decided to add Meek as well after the team was forced to use five relievers in the 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. The team is also expected to add right-hander Ryan Webb on Tuesday as long as he is OK after his outing at Norfolk on Monday.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Right-hander Tommy Hunter just completed a pregame pitcher's fielding practice session on the field here at Globe Life Park in Arlington. It's hot here in the Metroplex, so Hunter -- currently on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain -- worked up a lather covering first base, fielding comebackers and bunts in front of the mound. If all goes well, Hunter will throw from a mound again tomorrow. The club hasn't decided whether it will be a third bullpen session or a minor league rehabilitation assignment.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Covering Buck Showalter is often an eye opener. His reputation of being exceptionally prepared and detail-oriented is usually right on. Case in point: Monday's schedule, looming bad weather and Showalter's shell game to try and guarantee that Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez will pitch four or five innings. The forecast is calling for rain all day in the Sarasota area, but prospects are a little better for some sun further south on the West Coast of Florida.

NEW YORK - In a season that has been beset with injuries and continual roster shuffling, the Orioles picked up one of their more complete - and needed - wins Saturday afternoon with a 6-1 victory at Yankee Stadium, hours after suffering a heartbreaking defeat. It couldn't be without intrigue and lingering uncertainty, though. That would be contrary to this club's unintended theme of the season: Nothing is ever easy. Staked to a four-run lead and cruising through five innings Saturday, Orioles starter Bud Norris walked off the Yankee Stadium mound with right groin tightness after warming up in the bottom of the sixth.

Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who is recovering from a right oblique strain, made an injury rehabilitation start for Double-A Bowie on Wednesday night at Prince George's Stadium. Gonzalez, who is expected to return from the DL on Sunday or Monday, threw 70 pitches (45 strikes) in 4 1/3 scoreless innings for the Baysox on Wednesday. He allowed four hits, walked one batter and struck out five, leaving the game after striking out the leadoff batter in the fifth inning. Before the series finale against the Boston Red Sox, manager Buck Showalter wouldn't rule out the possibility of using a six-man starting rotation when Gonzalez is activated.
