SARASOTA, Fla. -- South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon has yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game and likely won't until late next week at the earliest. Yoon is slated to spend most of next week in Canada obtaining his work visa. He will fly to Ottawa on Sunday and has an interview appointment on Monday morning. That process is expected to take a few days, but it beats the alternative of Yoon traveling back to South Korea to get his visa - which would involve lengthy travel and missing extended time in camp.

Let's be honest. The hardest thing about evaluating the Orioles organization at the nonmathematical halfway point in the 2014 season is trying to do that without depending on the two most obvious measuring sticks. It would be easy to simply look at the American League East standings and the Orioles' strong performance over the past few weeks and give the club an "A" for overcoming several major obstacles to take control of the division. And it's always tempting to grade on a curve that takes into account just how unsuccessful this team was for so long.

SARASOTA, Fla. - After dealing with a month of uncertainty, a new team on a new continent, and plenty of work visa-related hoops to jump through, Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon finally made his Orioles debut Saturday afternoon. It lasted 11 pitches. “I knew I'd be nervous, but I pitched nine years in Korea, so overall I wasn't as nervous as I thought I'd be,” said Yoon, who signed a three-year, $5.75 million deal in mid-February but couldn't pitch stateside until securing his work visa in Canada this week.

With only Sunday's game against the New York Yankees remaining before the All-Star break, the Orioles are guaranteed to begin the second half of the season atop the American League East division. But Orioles manager Buck Showalter insists there is plenty left to fight for in the second half. “We may be in first place now, but we still feel like we're hunting something,” he said. Showalter said the biggest key to the second half, which begins with 26 consecutive games against teams that currently have a winning record, will be the team's pitching.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles made a pair of significant roster cuts following Wednesday's 7-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, optioning South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon and catcher Johnny Monell to Triple-A Norfolk. The club also reassigned non-roster outfielder Xavier Paul to minor league camp. Yoon, 27, signed a three-year, $5.575 million deal with the Orioles last month, but he couldn't pitch in a Grapefruit League game until getting his work visa, a tedious process that sent him to Canada for four days and was just completed last week.

SARASOTA, Fla. - It already was expected. Now it's pretty much a certainty that Manny Machado will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list. That means Ryan Flaherty likely will be the club's Opening Day third baseman. With Flaherty temporarily out of the mix, rookie Jonathan Schoop seems to be winning the second base competition over Jemile Weeks. And with Weeks not truly a utility guy and Alexi Casilla battling injury woes, it wouldn't be surprising if 37-year-old Alex Gonzalez makes the Opening Day roster as the utility infielder.

After he pitched three innings Sunday against the Houston Astros, the Orioles optioned left-hander T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk. The club wanted options in its bullpen for the upcoming three-game series against the Detroit Tigers -- and especially a right-hander who can serve in long relief. With McFarland sent down, the Orioles currently have no designated long men and still have three left-handers in the bullpen. Candidates to be called up could include Josh Stinson, assuming the club places him back on the 40-man roster, as well as Steve Johnson, who recently returned from injury, and Suk-min Yoon, who has struggled with consistency.

MINNEAPOLIS - Right-handed reliever Brad Brach will join the Orioles here Friday and be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk before the team's series opener against the Minnesota Twins, according to an industry source. Brach will give the club some much-needed bullpen depth following Thursday's doubleheader. He'll replace right-hander Evan Meek, who was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after Thursday's second game.  Brach threw 16 pitches in one inning of relief on Thursday for Norfolk - allowing one unearned run and one hit - but he is expected to be available to pitch Friday out of the pen. On the season, Brach is 2-1 with a 4.85 ERA in 13 innings over 12 appearances.

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Between the raindrops, the Orioles will try to fit in a split-squad road game against the Philadelphia Phillies this afternoon at Bright House Field. A massive band of storms is heading to Florida's Gulf Coast, threatening this game, set for 1:05 p.m., and the club's home split-squad game against the Minnesota Twins at Ed Smith Stadium tonight at 7:05 p.m. Brian Matusz is scheduled to start here, and Kevin Gausman is set to follow him. Also listed among the Orioles' available pitchers are Suk-min Yoon, Josh Stinson, Troy Patton and minor leaguers Jesse Beal and Oliver Drake.

Right-hander Bud Norris likely will need to either go on a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment or pitch in a simulated game before returning from the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain. “He won't go from just a side day into starting,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He's getting better. I ask [head athletic trainer] Richie [Bancells] and him every day. He's improving. I don't think he can really tell until he's on the mound.” Norris was believed to have a bullpen session scheduled Wednesday, but he will instead participate in pitcher's fielding practice Thursday and now is set to throw his next bullpen session Friday.

WASHINGTON -- Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy will be limited to 75 pitches per outing this season -- no matter where he ends up, manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday. But that pitch count doesn't preclude him from joining the Orioles at some point this season or even starting games at the major league level. “No, some people actually throw six innings with 75 pitches, too,” Showalter said. Bundy, 21, is recovering from Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery last June and has pitched in four minor league games this season.

When first base coach Wayne Kirby asked Jonathan Schoop to clear his locker Saturday, he hoped it would help the second baseman snap out of his struggles at the plate. So Schoop carried his belongings out of Camden Yards and then turned around and brought everything back in, pretending like he had just gotten called up from the minor leagues. “I was trying to refresh my mind,” Schoop said. “I was coming in like my season was just starting out. Tried to refresh, you never know.

MINNEAPOLIS - The Orioles opened a 40-man roster spot Sunday when they outrighted infielder David Adams to Double-A Bowie. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the move wasn't related to another pending transaction, but he said the flexibility it created would help the club. “I know the reason in which it was done at that time,” Showalter said. “But I'm not going to broadcast it. It has nothing to do with a pending move that I'm aware of. But it does open up some possibilities … if you have somebody not on the roster that you want to bring up. It's always good to have that maneuverability, that's some of it. But why that timing?

After the Orioles' doubleheader sweep, manager Buck Showalter said pitching prospect Kevin Gausman was dealing with chest tightness Thursday at Triple-A Norfolk and was diagnosed with an intercostal muscle strain. Gausman, 23, will miss at least one start and, if it doesn't improve, he could end up on the minor league disabled list. He is 0-1 with a 2.53 ERA in five starts for the Tides. In his last game April 26, Gausman was limited to just 75 pitches and 4 2/3 scoreless innings.

Suk-min Yoon, the Orioles' free-agent right-hander from South Korea who appeared in two Grapefruit League games after securing his work visa earlier this month, pitched four innings in the Orioles' 4-3 win Saturday against their Triple-A affiliate, the Norfolk Tides. The game was canceled because of persistent rain after the Orioles batted in the top of the sixth. The 27-year Yoon, who has already been sent down to Triple-A and added to Norfolk's rotation, pitched against the Tides lineup and allowed four hits and two runs while walking none and striking out two. He faced the minimum number of batters in three of his innings, but allowed three hits and two runs in the third, which ended with two outs.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Chris Tillman turned in the longest outing of the spring for an Orioles pitcher - topping We-Yin Chen's performance on Friday - and the Orioles beat a makeshift Yankees lineup, 2-1. Tillman, who is considered the likely favorite to start Opening Day for the Orioles, threw five scoreless innings before giving up a solo homer to Francisco Arcia to begin the sixth. It was the only run and just the third hit allowed by Tillman, who struck out five and walked two. “I felt good.

TORONTO - Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy said he isn't 100 percent recovered from his strained right hamstring, but he's healthy enough to return to the lineup. Hardy returned to the lineup Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre after missing the past two games with the injury. He left the Orioles' 6-5 loss Sunday to the Boston Red Sox in the seventh inning and later said he initially felt the strain while running the bases in the fifth. Hardy said Wednesday that he still has some tightness in the muscle, but it has improved dramatically in the past 48 hours.
