Suspended first baseman Chris Davis took batting practice with the Orioles at Camden Yards on Thursday, a day ahead of the American League Championship Series opener against the Kansas City Royals. But Davis, who has five games remaining on a 25-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy, will not be added to the ALCS roster, manager Buck Showalter said Thursday. In order to include Davis on the roster, the Orioles would have had to play shorthanded until the suspension ends.

While the Washington Wizards have removed virtually all traces of Gilbert Arenas from Verizon Center, one teammate found a way to get his suspended teammate's nickname visible Sunday before the team's loss to the New Orleans Hornets. DeShawn Stevenson took to the court during pre-game warm-ups with the words "AGENT" and "ZERO" written in red capital letters on tape wrapped just above his ankles. "He's still a part of the team, right?" Stevenson said. "He's still part of the team, he's my brother, so I'm going to stick to him through rough times.

A Baltimore police officer who was suspended without pay in September after being accused of falsely claiming his car had been stolen to obtain an insurance settlement could get more than $11,400 in back pay, despite pleading guilty to a charge in the case in November. The Board of Estimates, the city's spending panel, is to vote today on whether to pay Officer Hikeen D. Crampton three months' salary. He is eligible because he pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge of attempted theft - and not to more serious felony charges.

In a second sex-related sanction by the state's highest court, an Arnold lawyer was ordered suspended from practice for two months for swapping Vicodin for sex. But three of the seven judges wanted at least a six-month suspension for Jeffrey S. Marcalus, with Judge Glenn T. Harrell Jr. writing for the minority that "Marcalus has some judgment shortcomings when it comes to acting out as his libido moves him." Marcalus was suspended briefly in 2007 for sexting and touching a client in a suggestive way, Harrell noted.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Chris Davis returned to the baseball field Friday, but it was a field far from the one the Orioles played on in Toronto. Davis was over a thousand miles away in steamy Sarasota, playing Instructional League baseball as he tries to remain in shape during his 25-game suspension for a positive amphetamine test. In his first game since reporting to the Orioles' Sarasota complex on Tuesday, Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk against a pair of 18-year-old Tampa Bay Rays prospects in a game that ended in a 9-inning, 3-3 tie. Davis - who will miss at least the first eight games the Orioles play in the postseason, should they advance that far - left Friday's game after three innings.

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.

While the Orioles deal with the reality that slugger Chris Davis cannot come back this year unless they get past the divisional round of the playoffs, it might be time for Orioles fans to deal with the possibility that he won't be coming back at all. Davis is still under club control for one more season, but even before he was suspended for 25 games for a second violation of baseball's amphetamine policy, you had to wonder whether he would start...

The news that Chris Davis had been suspended 25 games for a violation of Major League Baseball's drug policy was still fresh Friday morning, as was the reality that the Orioles likely will be without one of their power bats for the rest of the year. But with the first game of the club's split doubleheader against the New York Yankees hours away, Orioles manager Buck Showalter had to quickly turn his focus to his lineup card. A club closing in on its first division title since 1997 already has overcome several obstacles, including season-ending injuries to cornerstone players Matt Wieters and Manny Machado, but now the Orioles' postseason dreams will have to be realized without Davis, whose suspension would end, at the earliest, late in the American League Championship Series.
