The Orioles played short a man on their 25-man roster after optioning right-hander Jake Arrieta to Triple-A, but the club will activate utility man Steve Tolleson before Saturday's game. Tolleson was not in the starting lineup for Triple-A Norfolk on Friday night. Instead, he was on his way to Southern California. Tolleson can't be activated until Saturday -- barring a DL move -- because that's when he fulfills the 10-day window a player must remain in the minors after being optioned.

OAKLAND, Calif - Orioles manager Buck Showalter's focus was on the Oakland Athletics on Friday night, but that doesn't mean he didn't have an eye on what was happening in Charlotte. Right-hander Jake Arrieta, who was demoted Monday after compiling a 6.63 ERA in four big league starts, made his 2013 Triple-A debut Friday night for the Norfolk Tides at the Charlotte Knights. Facing the Chicago White Sox's Triple-A affiliate, which has several former major leaguers including Brent Morel, Lars Anderson and ex-Orioles Josh Bell and Steve Tolleson, Arrieta passed his first test down below.

Barring any physical setbacks, the Orioles plan on activating catcher Taylor Teagarden and outfielder Endy Chavez from the 15-day disabled list before Friday's game against the Detroit Tigers. Chavez (left hamstring) played in his second minor-league rehab game on Tuesday -- his first at low Class-A Delvarva -- going hitless in four at bats. He is 0-for-8 in two games. He is slated to play in two more games for the Shorebirds before joining the Orioles. Teagarden (back) is slated to join Chavez in the Delmarva lineup on Wednesday.

The Orioles bullpen was forced to throw 6 1/3 innings Wednesday when starter Miguel Gonzalez couldn't get out of the third. So will a move be made this morning to bring in another reliever to fortify the bullpen? It's possible. “It's something we're talking about,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Wednesday's game. “We were talking about it after the third inning because we were trying to map out how we were going to get through the rest of the game without jeopardizing anybody.

Baseball America has acquired the list of minor leaguers that have applied for free agency and there are 25 former Orioles farmhands that can now look for work elsewhere. It's a procedural filing - some of the players will come back to the organization. A guy like infielder Steve Tolleson, for instance, who is established with manager Buck Showalter and gets call-up consideration anytime there is a need likely will view the Orioles organization as his best bet and re-sign. That is unless he can land a big league deal.

The Orioles have made a move to strengthen their infield defense, claiming 28-year-old second baseman Alexi Casilla from the Minnesota Twins on Friday. Casilla, 28, is primarily a second baseman but has played shortstop and third base in his seven-year big league career, all with the Twins. Last season, the speedy Casilla hit .241 with a .282 on-base percentage and stole 21 bases in 22 attempts. “He has really good speed and plays good defense. He should be in the mix for [second base]

The tarp is on the infield here at Camden Yards as a line of storms passes through downtown Baltimore. It appears that the worst of the bad weather has come through the city. The Orioles will face Yankees ace CC Sabathia today, and manager Buck Showalter's starting lineup offers a few tweaks from the one we're used to seeing against left-handed pitching. Among the changes, Steve Tolleson will hit eighth as the starting DH, the first time he's been in the starting lineup since he was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sept.

The Orioles will enjoy their first day off since the All-Star break today, ending a string of 20 games in 20 days. The O's played .500 ball during that span, going 10-10, and actually picked up 1½ games on the American League East-leading New York Yankees. They're lodged in a three-team tie 1½ games behind the two AL wild-card leaders. But as shown throughout this stretch, the Orioles still have plenty of holes to fill. Their offense has been erratic and at times anemic. And the starting rotation - while promising at times - often leaves fans scratching their heads.

Faced with the task of adding four starting pitchers to the American League Division Series roster that were excluded from the one-game wild-card team, Orioles manager Buck Showalter decided to go with Tommy Hunter's experience in the postseason and as a reliever over three other young pitchers who were available to play Friday in Texas. To fill out the ALDS roster, the Orioles added Jason Hammel , Wei-Yin Chen , Miguel Gonzalez and Chris Tillman while removing infielder Omar Quintanilla and a trio of pitchers who were key for the club at different points this season: Steve Johnson , Jake Arrieta and Zach Britton . The exclusion of Johnson, who is 4-0 with a 2.11 ERA but hasn't pitched since Sept.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Cal Ripken Jr. was in the TBS broadcast booth for Friday night's American League wild-card game, alongside former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz and play-by-play man Ernie Johnson . Ripken had previously been a postseason studio analyst, but he only recently started working from the booth. And this is the first time, of course, that he has played this role as a broadcaster for an Orioles playoff game. "I'm enjoying being here," Ripken said before the game.

"I really tried not to look back and think about that. [Baltimore] was a great experience, great team, great coaches. But baseball had different plans for me. I'm with the Yankees now, and that's where my focus is. I wish those guys the best of luck, but not against us. " The 29-year-old Pearce has had an incredibly busy and bizarre 2012 season.

The Orioles are in such a strange position right now that it's hard to predict what they'll do in several areas. One is September call-ups. Manager Buck Showalter isn't showing his hand. It's obvious he would love to have super prospect Dylan Bundy at his disposal next month. The 19-year-old Bundy pitches Sunday for Double-A Bowie, and, honestly, it's becoming increasingly apparent that if the Orioles are still in the race - and they'd have to absolutely collapse not to be by next week - Bundy will be here.

NEW YORK - Shortstop J.J. Hardy's seventh-inning error allowed the winning run to score in the Orioles' 4-3 loss to the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon, but a marked improvement in the field fielding during the second half of the season has been instrumental to the O's recent surge toward the top of the American League East. At the All-Star break, the Orioles had committed a major league-worst 75 errors through 85 games, an average of 0.88 per game. Since then, they've nearly cut that mark in half.

- The Orioles arrived at Yankee Stadium with a new left-hander in the bullpen on Friday, but not much more relief experience from the left side. It's something that could prove critical in playing left-handed heavy lineups like the Yankees through the season's playoff push. Don't, however, count Orioles manager Buck Showalter among those concerned about the lack of experience. Veteran left-hander Randy Wolf officially joined the team before Friday's game and was available in the bullpen, but Wolf has made just five relief appearances in his major league career.
