HOUSTON -- With Steve Johnson going on the disabled list and right fielder Nick Markakis away from the team due to the death of his paternal grandmother, the Orioles decided to call up outfielder Xavier Avery to give the team some bench depth on Thursday. Avery did not play in the game and was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk after the game. The team is expected to call up a reliever Friday. Avery, a 23-year-old left-handed hitter with speed, batted .192 in 15 games at Triple-A Norfolk after hitting .300 in 39 games at Double-A Bowie this year.

A biography of former Baltimore banker Ed Hale is set to detail his rise from a Sparrows Point upbringing to exploits in real estate, sports business and banking - working covertly for the CIA and surviving plane crashes along the way. Apprentice House, a student-run book publisher at Loyola University Maryland, is releasing "Hale Storm," by former Baltimore Sun columnist Kevin Cowherd , on Nov. 1.

It isn't as if Del. Anthony G. Brown lacks the pedigree. The Prince George's County Democrat almost never appears in print without "Harvard Law School graduate" or "House majority whip" or his limitless potential mentioned somewhere in the story. But having just returned from a nine-month stint in Iraq, where he served as a senior consultant to the Iraqi Transitional Government's Ministry of Displacement and Migration, Brown's star is suddenly and most certainly on the rise. His name is being floated for and he is considering a number of prominent offices -- U.S. senator, lieutenant governor, state attorney general and comptroller.

When the Ravens travel to play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, there will be several familiar faces on the opposing sideline. That includes Browns first-year head coach Mike Pettine, a former Ravens outside linebackers coach under John Harbaugh who got his start with the organization breaking down games in the video department for former Ravens coach Brian Billick. A former standout high school football coach in Pennsylvania, Pettine became a defensive coordinator with the New York Jets when he left the Ravens' staff to work under Rex Ryan and then with the Buffalo Bills prior to landing the Browns' job after last season.

Jason Hammel (strained right forearm) continued his progress toward returning to the mound in a big league game next month. Hammel, whose disabled list stint dates back to July 29, threw long toss Wednesday and said he felt no discomfort at all. He said he made about 25 throws from 90 feet, 25 more from 120 feet and 10 others from about 50 feet. Now he'll continue with the plan to pitch Friday off a mound for the first time in three weeks. He expects to throw about 30 pitches - he called it a “strength-building session.” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Hammel likely would have to make two rehab starts in the minors before returning, so Hammel isn't expected to join the team until after rosters expand Sept.

Miguel Tejada, once the franchise player of the Orioles organization, could be near his third stint with the team. Tejada is slated to report to the Orioles spring training facility in Sarasota on Monday and work out with the organization's extended spring training team, a club source confirmed. If the club likes what they see in the 37-year-old former AL MVP, they could pursue a contract. He would add a solid defensive glove at third base and a right-handed bat, and it's likely any deal would be a minor-league deal.

REMEMBER WHEN a stretch in the slammer was considered a bad thing? Remember when it could actually cause you great embarrassment, hurt your career and lead people to treat you like a social pariah? Right, neither do I. These days, it seems a stint behind bars can be just the thing to perk up everything from your love life to your Q rating to your bank account -- at least if you're a celebrity. There's been so many classic examples over the years, I hardly know where to begin. Mike Tyson does three years for rape, and when he gets out of the joint, fight promoters take turns throwing millions of dollars at him to get him back in the ring.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Cleveland Indians at Camden Yards, but manager Buck Showalter said the team believes Machado can avoid going on the disabled list. Machado left Thursday's 8-7, 13-inning loss to Cleveland in the top of the 12th inning with right groin stiffness. “I think it was better than we thought it would be today,” Showalter said. “It's the proverbial day-to-day. We'll see what the next day or so brings, but we don't think it's a DL-able thing at this point.” Machado said his groin felt much better Friday, and he even hoped he could return to the starting lineup Saturday.

KANSAS CITY, MO - Although he had been in the majors for parts of the past three seasons with the San Diego Padres, right-handed reliever Brad Brach admits he may have been a little jittery when he made his Orioles debut May 3. He allowed three runs while getting just four outs that day in Minnesota. He pitched in the next game as well - striking out one of the two batters he faced - before being sent back to Triple-A Norfolk two days later. “I'm definitely more comfortable this time,” said Brach, who was recalled Friday to give the Orioles a reliever capable of pitching multiple innings.

There is still no timetable on when third baseman Manny Machado will play in a game this spring, but the Orioles received reassurance Thursday that he's on the right track with his surgically repaired left knee. Showalter said athletic trainer Richie Bancells received word from surgeon Neal ElAttrache that Machado's checkup in Los Angeles went well Thursday afternoon. “Nothing's changed, but it's good news to hear somebody else say what our training staff is saying,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

CHESTER, Pa. - In the summer of 1980, a 17-year-old Sasho Cirovski played on Scotland's Aberdeen Football Club youth team, which at the time was led by a coach named Bobby Clark. “My first memory was that he didn't play me in my first game, and I was not happy,” Cirovski recalled Friday. “He played me the next couple games, and I was much happier.” Cirovski and Clark will see each other and shake hands today at PPL Park in Chester, Pa., but it will be as equals.

John Oliver, who was so impressive as guest host of "The Daily Show," is leaving Comedy Central for HBO where he will have his own weekly comedy series, the premium channel announced Thursday. The show, which is scheduled to debut in 2014, will offer a satirical look at the week's events and air on Sunday nights -- the biggest night for HBO. "We weren't otherwise searching for another weekly talk show, but when we saw John Oliver handling host duties on 'The Daily Show,' we knew that his singular perspective and distinct voice belonged on HBO," Michael Lombardo, president of programming at HBO, said in a statement.

That was where the state of Maryland's all-time leading passer painted his legacy and where possibilities seemed as limitless as the magic from his right arm.
