It's hard to argue with the logic of designating backup catcher Taylor Teagarden for assignment at this point in the season, but that doesn't mean it isn't a tough break for a guy who has been a good soldier playing a very difficult role. Teagarden played in just 23 games this year and never got an opportunity to get into any kind of rhythm at the plate. That's the way it goes when you play behind a guy who's going to play every possible inning, and you really can't say that the decision to replace him on the roster with Chris Snyder and Steve Clevenger is not fair.

Orioles reserve catcher Taylor Teagarden woke up with back pain on Friday and has been shut down for at least a day or two. Teagarden missed a big chunk of last season after suffering a more serious back injury in spring training, but he said Friday's discomfort is not comparable to the problem that delayed his arrival in Baltimore last year until midseason. “[It was] real stiff, pretty achy this morning, a little more than normal," Teagarden said “Just want to be a little cautious, you know.

WASHINGTON - Over the past few days, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has spoken optimistically about getting some of the club's injured players back soon. “We are hoping to get those four or five guys back at some point soon,” he said Tuesday before the Orioles' interleague game against the Washington Nationals. It appears that some of those players are making significant strides. Here are updates on some of the team's DL players: -- Right-hander Pedro Strop (lower back strain)

On Saturday, Taylor Teagarden hit a walk-off home run in the 13th inning to beat the Detroit Tigers after being activated from the 60-day disabled list earlier that day. After the game, Teagarden went on for a live interview with the Fox announcers in the booth, where his teammates proceeded to hit him in the face with a shaving cream pie. While wiping his face off, Teagarden said a four-letter word that is a synonym for 'poop' on...

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Orioles reserve catcher Taylor Teagarden is out likely three to four weeks after taking a foul ball to the tip of his left thumb in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 7-3 win over the Oakland A's on Saturday . Teagarden said when he took off his mitt, the thumb was bent backward and was “kind of scary looking,” and he immediately assumed it was broken. Instead, X-rays confirmed it was only a dislocation, but it will still require a 15-day disabled-list stint that could last a month.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Brian Roberts has been through a lot over the past three years, but things are definitely looking up. He's back in camp with a new lease on baseball life after three years of injuries and frustration, and he said Friday that he and his wife Diana are expecting their first child during the upcoming season. “It's awesome," Roberts said. “It's been a huge blessing. Most people know of my passion and affinity for kids. Being able to add that to our life ... to be able to have that is really great timing for us after all that has gone on. I think it has provided us with an extra boost.” Roberts missed time in 2010 with a back problem and a late-season concussion.

Taylor Teagarden got his face crushed by three pies folllowing his walk-off home run to beat the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night. Should he also have had his mouth washed out? Teagarden, obviously surprised by the barrage at the hands of Adam Jones, Mark Reynolds and Robert Andino during a postgame interview, uttered an expletive that was audible on FOX's broadcast. No seven-second delay?

Congratulations to Maria and Matt Wieters on the birth of their new son, Maverick Luther, who arrived very early on Friday morning. It is customary in this day and age for a player to take a day or two off to be with his wife and new baby, so backup catcher Taylor Teagarden is in the lineup for tonight's series opener against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards. Wieters is expected to be back in the lineup for tomorrow's game. Wieters has been the hardest-working catcher in the American League this year, so getting two consecutive days off (with the offday Thursday)

The Orioles have attempted to bolster their lack of catching depth by sending minor league right-hander Rob Delaney to the Los Angeles Angels organization for veteran catcher Chris Snyder. Snyder, 32, will meet the team in Seattle on Tuesday and presumably will take over the back-up catching void created when Taylor Teagarden dislocated his left thumb Saturday. The Orioles recalled Luis Exposito for Sunday's game - he did not play -- but now it is likely he will lose his place on the big league roster Tuesday with the pending arrival of Snyder, a veteran of parts of nine major league seasons.

Catcher Chris Snyder, whom the Orioles acquired Sunday from the Los Angeles Angels in a deal for minor league right-hander Rob Delaney, was at Safeco Field on Monday, but he has not been activated. The Orioles wanted to give Snyder a day to get acclimated, but they also are waiting on more information about injured reserve catcher Taylor Teagarden (dislocated left thumb), who will see a hand specialist on Tuesday. The initial prognosis for Teagarden's return is three to four weeks, but if it ends up being two months, the club could move Teagarden from the 15-day to 60-day DL. That way they would not have to make a corresponding move to add Snyder to the 40-man roster.

Buck Showalter and the Orioles are obviously set at catcher with Matt Wieters, who has represented the club at the All-Star Game the past two years and has a pair of Gold Glove awards collecting dust somewhere. But Showalter is also quite fond of backup catcher Taylor Teagarden and raved about him on Sunday morning. Before the 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, one of my peers told Showalter that a few Orioles players had suggested that Teagarden actually had a stronger arm than Wieters, who has thrown out four of seven runners this season.

When Orioles catcher Matt Wieters threw out Tampa Bay's speedy center fielder Desmond Jennings trying to steal second base in the ninth inning Thursday night, it wasn't just an important play in a game the Orioles eventually won in 10 innings. It served as further example that Wieters - and, really, the entire defense - has shut down the opposition's running game so far in 2013. How good has Wieters and company been? They have thrown out eight of 10 would-be base stealers this year - an 80 percent mark that is by far the best in the majors.
