Day after day following the 2007 season, Brandon Erbe arrived at Twin Lakes Park, got dressed and headed out to the bullpen to meet Orioles minor league pitching instructor Dave Schmidt. For more than a month, they worked under the hot Florida sun, doing the same drills and retracing the same movements. Erbe never threw a single pinch. "We had three or four drills that we'd do over and over, just dry work. It's not exactly fun. It's rather mundane, just boring stuff over and over again," Schmidt said.

Injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was in the Orioles' clubhouse Wednesday and promised to return in late October if his teammates make it to World Series. "I'll be back, for sure," said the 21-year-old Machado, who has been in Los Angeles rehabbing since he had surgery on Aug. 27 to repair a partially torn ligament in his right knee. He arrived in Baltimore on Monday and said he will stay for the two games at Camden Yards before leaving Saturday for the club's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla. to continue his rehab.

NEW YORK - Shortstop J.J. Hardy reiterated after Monday's game that he would like to remain in an Orioles uniform for the rest of his career following reports out of New York that said the pending free agent would consider signing with the Yankees. Hardy has long made his desire to remain in Baltimore clear. He likes playing for manager Buck Showalter and enjoys the clubhouse chemistry that he has built. Since the Orioles acquired him in a trade with the Minnesota Twins after the 2010 season, he has been an instrumental part of the team's transformation from doormat to division champion.

It's about money Phil Rogers , Chicago Tribune There's a familiar refrain that has been heard around the majors for at least the last couple of decades. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has been singing it this week, wondering why so many players get hurt when they're in better shape than ever. "Nobody did sit-ups 20 years ago, and nobody tore intercostals and obliques," Roenicke said. "There were a few but not many. You come (into camp) in shape. So you think it would happen less now, but it's happening more.

Spring training is in full swing, so we finally have something to discuss besides the Terps, Ravens and Caps. Sure, we'll still talk about them, too, but it's nice to have another option. [1] The gang's all there in Sarasota, Fla., after the Orioles position players reported to spring training Tuesday morning. Miggy Tejada rolled in at the last minute, of course, but hey, at least he made it. Making the switch from shortstop to third base, Tejada says he feels "like a little kid with a new toy."

— When the Orioles took to the practice fields for their first pitcher/catcher workout of spring training Monday, it was hard not to draw some metaphorical connection with the stadium construction project going on nearby. The renovation of Ed Smith Stadium is nearly complete, but there are still scaffolds reaching well into the sky and lots to do before the dramatically upgraded facility is ready to host its first exhibition game in two weeks. The rebuilding of the once-proud Orioles franchise is not quite so far along, but there is no disputing that the team has undergone significant cosmetic improvement over the past few months, and that has changed the level of expectation throughout the organization and its fan base.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles outfield at major league spring training this year will be crowded. The club is expected to announce the signing of outfielder Tyler Colvin to a major league deal today, as we first reported last night , pending a physical. He will be the 12th outfielder who will be invited to spring training. That's a lot. Other than starting center fielder Adam Jones and starting right fielder Nick Markakis, that list also includes 10 players who will compete for time in left field: Nolan Reimold, Henry Urrutia, David Lough, Steve Pearce, Delmon Young, Francisco Peguero, Quintin Berry, Xavier Paul, Julio Borbon and Colvin.

But here's what we've got: -- Orioles right-hander Jason Berken said he feels better than yesterday but remains shut down from baseball activities Saturday. He injured his left hamstring during running drills Thursday. He was walking around the clubhouse today with a pretty heavy limp and his left thigh heavily wrapped.

The Orioles have already given Baltimore much to be proud of this week by clinching the American League East division title. Not as well known is another reason for Baltimore to be proud of this amazing organization - for the role that they are playing in the fight against lung cancer ( "Reflecting on memorable scenes from the Orioles' celebration Tuesday," Sept. 17). When Orioles Public Relations Director Monica Barlow died this February of lung cancer, she was only 36 years old. She had spent much of her four-and-a-half-year fight against lung cancer sharing her story in the hope of bringing attention to the critical need for research, some of which helped extend her own life.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter spoke with Chris Davis on Sunday and expects the suspended first baseman to soon go to the organization's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla., in an attempt to stay sharp. Showalter wouldn't specify when Davis will get there, except to say he's "headed to Sarasota here before long. " Showalter said Davis likely will clean out his apartment in Baltimore - which players usually do in late September or early October - and then drop off his things at his home in Texas before going to Florida.

Manny Machado had the partially torn ligament in his right knee repaired successfully Wednesday morning, and the third baseman remains on the timeline to return to the club for spring training next season, according to Orioles manager Buck Showalter. The operation was performed at 6 a.m. in Los Angeles by surgeon Dr. Neal ElAtrrache, who did a similar procedure last October on Machado's left knee. “Doctors said everything went well, as expected,” Showalter said. “They had what they thought was going to happen, what they thought they were going to find.” Showalter said Machado will stay in Los Angeles to do his initial recovery for about three weeks, as originally planned.

Manny Machado's decision to have surgery on his right knee already has ended his season, and the timing of the procedure -- and its recovery -- might prevent the third baseman from being with the Orioles through the end of the regular season. Scheduled to have season-ending surgery Wednesday in Los Angeles to repair a partially-torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his right knee, Machado might not be back to support his teammates until a possible postseason game. Machado will fly to the West Coast on Tuesday for the procedure, which will be performed by Los Angeles Dodgers team orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the same doctor who did the same procedure on his left knee last year.

CHICAGO -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado's season-ending right knee surgery is scheduled to be performed Wednesday in Los Angeles, manager Buck Showalter announced Sunday before the Orioles' 2-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Machado was expected to remain with the team on the flight back to Baltimore on Sunday, but he will leave for California on Tuesday. He is expected to remain on the West Coast for about three weeks, returning to Baltimore around Sept. 17-18.

CHICAGO -- With Manny Machado out for the season and facing right knee surgery, Chris Davis could see a lot of time at third base over the season's final five weeks and any postseason run. Davis made his sixth consecutive start at third base Saturday, and as long at Steve Pearce continues hitting while playing first base, he likely will remain there barring a trade. When Davis doesn't play, expect Ryan Flaherty and Jonathan Schoop to also get some action at third base, depending on which one of the two plays second base.

The Orioles arrived in Sarasota with plenty of intrigue, a starting lineup already pretty much set in stone and a rotation with perhaps just one opening. But Buck Showalter's bullpen is wide-open, which gives us an opportunity to do a little spring speculation. Baltimore has several relievers with closing experience -- most notably Kevin Gregg, Michael Gonzalez and Koji Uehara -- and one more could be added to the mix if Alfredo Simon is released from prison in the Dominican Republic.

Though the results of new designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero 's physical examination won't be available until at least Thursday and his contract won't be finalized until those results are in, his arrival in the clubhouse at the Ed Smith Stadium complex Wednesday morning created quite a buzz. "God, it's good to see him," said pitcher Chris Tillman , who gained some SportsCenter fame when he bounced a pitch in front of Guerrero a couple of years ago and it still cost him a base hit. "I probably saw the replay of that 60 times during the postseason.

CHICAGO - Once an MRI revealed a partially torn ligament in his right knee, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado knew it was possible that his season was over. But with the Orioles on the verge of their first American League East title in 17 years, Machado hoped rest and treatment would resolve the injury quickly enough to allow him to be a part of a possible postseason run. Nearly two weeks after his right knee buckled after following through on a swing, however, Machado has decided to have season-ending surgery for the second straight season.
