- Former Orioles' first-roundpick Matt Hobgood, who has battled ineffectiveness and injury in his brief pro career, will have right rotator-cuff surgery on April 2 and is expected to miss all of the 2012 season. The 21-year-old Hobgood, whom the Orioles selected in the first round (fifth overall) in 2009, was shut down earlier this month with shoulder discomfort, something that previously has hampered him in his career. He was examined by Dr. Craig Morgan earlier this week and surgery to repair the shoulder was recommended, according to John Stockstill, the Orioles director of player development.

The competition to open the season as Morgan State's starting quarterback has come down to two men. With Seth Higgins still recuperating from offseason shoulder surgery, redshirt senior Robert Council and redshirt junior Moses Skillon split reps with the first offense during a scrimmage at Hughes Stadium Wednesday. First-year coach Lee Hull confirmed that Council and Skillon are battling for the right to start at Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30. “It's down to Moses and Robert,” said Hull, a former wide receivers coach at Maryland.

While other Orioles pitchers head to different fields to throw bullpen sessions or work on their fielding and pickoff moves, Brandon Erbe stays off to the side and plays catch with an athletic trainer. It is a tedious and, at times, frustrating routine for the pitcher, but it's also a necessary one if the former McDonogh standout hopes to rebound from shoulder surgery and get to the big leagues. "It's tough because you want to get back as soon as possible," said Erbe, a 23-year-old right-hander who had surgery to repair a torn labrum in mid-August.

A Ravens player will undergo shoulder surgery this week, but it won't be linebacker Ray Lewis. The Ravens announced that quarterback Kyle Boller will have arthroscopic surgery today to clean up damaged tissue in his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Boller, who was named the Ravens' starter last month, is not expected to miss any minicamps. Lewis, however, will have surgery on his thumb Wednesday, a team spokesman said. There had been talk that the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year would need a minor operation on his right shoulder, which was stabilized by a harness for the final month of the season.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick had two more hits yesterday. He raised his spring average to .318 and gave no outward indication that his first three weeks of spring training have been anything but good. It is not that simple, of course. Bordick, who is working his way back from shoulder surgery, still can't say he feels like a new man. The strength in his shoulder is improving steadily, but it is on its own schedule. "There's always that process," he said yesterday.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Despite winning his past six decisions and being named UPI's Comeback Player of the Year in 1991, some wonder whether Orel Hershiser will be the same pitcher he was before undergoing radical shoulder surgery in 1990.Hershiser isn't bothered by the skepticism. He wonders, too."If one day I pronounce I'm back as far as the form of 1985 or 1988 . . . that's such a huge statement," the Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander said Wednesday during a 3-0 loss to Montreal. "I don't know if that would happen.

VIERA, Fla. - Beau Hale, the Orioles' first-round draft pick in 2000, will have arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder and might not pitch this season. Hale underwent a magnetic resonance imaging test on the shoulder last week, and was examined Sunday by team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Charles Silberstein at the minor-league complex in Sarasota, Fla. No date has been announced for the surgery, which executive vice president Jim Beattie described as "exploratory." "They saw something on the MRI and they want to take a look and see what it is," Beattie said.

Left-hander Johan Santana tore his left Achilles tendon in the third inning of his extended spring training start in Sarasota, Fla., on Friday, effectively ending his season. The 35-year-old former two-time Cy Young Award winner was attempting to come back from shoulder surgery and was slated, after two rehabilitation starts, to join the Orioles in roughly two weeks. Santana was supposed to throw between 75 and 85 pitches in one final extended spring training Friday, but threw only 33 in three innings.

DALLAS - The Orioles purchased the contract of two-time Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday evening and placed him on the 15-day major league disabled list as he continues to rehab from left shoulder surgery. In doing so, the club added Santana to its 40-man roster just before a Monday midnight deadline when he could have exercised an opt-out clause in the minor league deal he signed in March. The Orioles believe Santana could join the major league club later this month.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Left-hander Johan Santana, who is recovering from his second shoulder surgery in a three-year span, threw two innings in his first extended spring training game Monday afternoon at the Orioles' complex in Sarasota, Fla. Santana is continuing to improve his fastball velocity. He was clocked at 86 to 89 mph Monday, which is encouraging since it was his first outing in game action aside from simulated games. He is expected to throw three innings Saturday in his next appearance.

SARASOTA, Fla. -  Two-time Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana visited the Ed Smith Stadium Complex on Monday morning with little fanfare - the latest veteran seeking a second baseball life with the Orioles. The Orioles were nearing a minor league deal with the injury-plagued Santana on Monday evening, according to an industry source. He would be the latest reclamation project under executive vice president Dan Duquette. Santana - who will be 35 this month - was once one of the best left-handed pitchers in the game, but he did not pitch at all last season after his second shoulder surgery in three seasons last April to repair a torn anterior capsule.

When Matt Hobgood stepped on the mound for the first time in rookie league on July 18, 2009, he couldn't find the arm strength that propelled his 98-mph fastballs and his rise to the fifth overall pick in that year's first-year player draft. In its place that summer in Bluefield, W.Va. - and later in Delmarva, Aberdeen and Sarasota, Fla. - was pain and soreness that never really subsided. His velocity dipped lower and lower while his ERA soared, and soon, the confidence of the top high school pitcher in the class of 2009 was all but gone.

In attempt to attract more television viewers to the Pro Bowl and also make the game more appealing its players, the NFL and the players union on Wednesday announced major changes to spice up the game's format. The NFL has eliminated the traditional AFC-NFC format in favor of one in which two fantasy football champions from NFL.com and two captains will each pick 43 players, regardless of which conference those players play in, out the pool of players voted into the game. Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will be the captains for this season's Pro Bowl, which will be played in Honolulu on Jan. 26. The Pro Bowl draft will be held four days earlier.

There was no imaginable reason the Orioles would want to keep Alan Mills for 1996, and every reason to believe they'd dump him. At least that's what Mills figured.The pitcher had a terrible season and underwent shoulder surgery, and teams rarely invite back damaged goods. As the December deadline for teams to tender contracts approached, Mills assumed he wouldn't hear from the Orioles. "I thought there was no way I'd be back," he said.But the third week of December, a fat envelope arrived in the mail -- a 1996 Orioles contract.

Matt Hobgood, the Orioles' first-round pick in 2009, made his first appearance for High-A Frederick on Saturday, allowing one run on two hits in 4 2/3 innings of relief against Salem. Hobgood is making his way back after shoulder surgery last year. He struck out six on Saturday, and the only run he gave up came on a homer. He was 7-3 with a 3.71 ERA in 24 appearances (one start) for Low-A Delmarva this season before being promoted to the Keys earlier this week.

WASHINGTON - In baseball circles, especially among pitchers, a visit to Los Angeles Angels team doctor and renowned orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum was often seen as a prelude to surgery and a lengthy disabled list stint. But there were plenty of times that Yocum - who died over the weekend at 65 after battling liver cancer - recommended that a player not undergo surgery and choose rehabilitation first. Orioles reliever Darren O'Day was one of those cases. As an Angels rookie in 2008, O'Day tore the labrum in his pitching shoulder and visited Yocum for a diagnosis and advice.
