Veteran left-hander Randy Wolf, who appeared in five games with the Orioles at the end of this season, will have Tommy John surgery on his left elbow next week and will miss all of 2013. The 36-year-old said in an email Tuesday that this does not mean his career is over. “I won't be able to pitch until 2014, and yes, I will pitch in 2014,” Wolf wrote. Dr. Lewis Yocum, the Los Angeles Angels team doctor who performed the same procedure on Wolf in 2005, will operate on him Oct. 30 in Los Angeles, Wolf said.

Everyone who was hoping against hope that Matt Wieters could avoid Tommy John surgery was just whistling through the graveyard. Once it became known that his elbow soreness was persisting and he would see Dr. James Andrews for a second visit, it was pretty obvious that his season was over. It's a big setback for the Orioles, but they wouldn't have traded for Nick Hundley if they weren't pretty sure they were going to need a long-term solution when Wieters came up sore. If there is a surprise, it's the way Caleb Joseph has stepped up to provide a very solid defensive option for the club behind the plate.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Orioles designated hitter Wilson Betemit underwent successful exploratory arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday. The procedure isn't expected to extend Betemit's initial recovery time of six to eight weeks from a Grade 2/3 posterior cruciate ligament tear in the knee. “They went in just to look and repair a couple of minor things, so everything in there was good news," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday. “The anterior cruciate ligament is really good and the PCL looks like it's going to heal.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- In recent days, the Orioles feared that the possibility of losing catcher Matt Wieters for the season was becoming closer to reality. Still, the club clung to any shred of optimism that the two-time All-Star and two-time American League Gold Glove winner would be able to help down the stretch. Any hope of that was extinguished Monday after his follow-up visit to renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla. Wieters will have Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery Tuesday at noon, performed by Andrews, that will end his season.

North Carolina senior Brittney Coppa will miss this season after tearing the ACL in her left knee during a scrimmage against the U.S. national team in Florida Jan. 26. The North Carroll graduate plans to have surgery in a couple weeks, Tar Heels coach Jenny Levy said, but hasn't decided whether she will redshirt. A third-team All-American, Coppa was expected to be a key component in an otherwise young midfield that has to replace Tewaaraton Award finalist Kara Cannizzaro and Emily Garrity.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter often talks about the importance of separating emotion from every play of a baseball game - every pitch, every swing, every catch. But the swing of emotion the Orioles rode Saturday night - seeing right fielder Nick Markakis come out of the game after he was hit by a pitch in the left hand, then hearing that their leadoff hitter will miss at least six weeks with a broken left thumb - was tough for even a veteran manager like Showalter to compartmentalize.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles minor leaguer Matt Hobgood, the fifth-overall pick in the 2009 draft, threw his first bullpen session of the spring and just his second since season-ending rotator-cuff surgery 11 months ago on Sunday morning at the Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex at Twins Lakes Park. He threw a brief pen session in instructional league in October. Hobgood, who has been limited to 42 games in his minor league career because of inconsistency and injury, said he's pitching pain free for the first time in nearly four years.

The Orioles were hoping Jim Johnson would go down to Triple-A Norfolk, regain his confidence and command and return to the club to occupy a key role at the back end of the bullpen. Now, they just hope he'll avoid right elbow surgery and be healthy enough to pitch for the club again this season. Johnson, who made one appearance at Triple-A Norfolk after his May 1 demotion, will visit orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., this week to get a second opinion on his elbow.
