After a tough first half, the Frederick Keys have received lineup and bullpen reinforcements that could improve the team's fortunes in the Carolina League. Frederick received infielder Michael Almanzar on a rehab assignment, plus first baseman Trey Mancini, outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, and reliever Jimmy Yacabonis from Low Class-A Delmarva in the past week, and though the team is 1-5 in the second half so far and those four players haven't done much, it represents a big step for both the ballclub and those players.

Sisco, the Orioles' second-round pick last year, hit .404 with eight doubles, a home run, and 19 RBIs in 24 June games, good for a 1.004 OPS.

Trey Mancini was one of several members of last year's Aberdeen IronBirds to enter his first full season with high expectations. After a slow April, the eighth-round draft pick out of Notre Dame has begun to deliver on his promise with Low-A Delmarva. Mancini hit .245 with a .629 OPS in the first month of the season, but he has raised his season average to .302/.356/.372 with one of the strongest May performances in the system. Mancini has hit .372/.402/.449 with five extra-base hits in 20 games this month for the Shorebirds, who are 24-21 and eight games behind a ridiculously good Hagerstown team.

Would a horseshoe crab harvest ban save the red knot? As scientists who have collectively studied red knots, our response is an unequivocal yes. Horseshoe crab eggs are critical to the red knot's ability to complete their spring migration and reproduce in the Canadian Arctic. Without ample numbers of breeding crabs laying eggs on Delaware Bay beaches, red knots will continue to decline. For years we hoped that the modest reductions of horseshoe crab harvests would lead to increases in egg densities, especially after New Jersey's 2006 moratorium.

It is difficult not to be moved by the plight of the red knot, the small shorebird that migrates 9,300 miles annually from South America all the way to the Canadian Arctic, one of the longest such journeys of any bird on the planet. Their numbers have dwindled to an alarming level. Critical to the species' survival is what happens in Maryland's backyard. The red knots make a stopover in Delaware Bay each spring (usually peaking around Memorial Day weekend) to feast on eggs laid by horseshoe crabs, which appear on coastal beaches at just the right time to spawn.

The Orioles' top prospect, Manny Machado , is only expected to miss about a week with a left knee injury he suffered Thursday. Machado, who was selected third overall in last year's amateur draft, had a MRI on Friday and was diagnosed with a left patellar subluxation, which can also be described as a dislocated kneecap. Orioles team orthopedist John Wilckens reviewed the MRI on Friday evening and is expected to examine Machado on either Monday or Tuesday, when Machado's Delmarva Shorebirds are in Hagerstown.

SALISBURY -It's not easy to be the answer to a trivia question. But Ryan Minor, the man who replaced Cal Ripken Jr. on Sept. 20, 1998, and ended his consecutive-games streak at 2,632, is at peace with his place in baseball history, even if it comes up while he's eating dinner on the road. "You hear that question asked a ton," Minor says as he sits in the dugout of his employer, the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds. "And people don't even realize you're sitting there and you're the guy that played that night.
