Ryan Metzler, a Glen Burnie native and Archbishop Spalding graduate, was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the ninth round of the MLB First-Year Player Draft Friday night. The infielder was the 264th overall selection in the draft and the ninth selection in the round. Metzler just completed his junior year at the University of South Carolina Aiken, where he finished the year with a .365 batting average, four home runs, 42 RBIs and 16 stolen bases in 53 games. An All-Metro first-team selection after his senior season at Spalding, Metzler batted .515 and led the team with 15 stolen bases.

TORONTO - Earning home-field advantage throughout the postseason was the Orioles' final goal of the regular season, but since winning the American League East 10 days ago, their greater focus was positioning themselves for a deep postseason run. They chased the Los Angeles Angels down to the final three days of the regular season for the American League's best record, but following the Orioles' 4-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night...

TORONTO - Orioles first baseman Chris Davis will hit from the No. 7 spot tonight for the first time since Sept. 23, 2012, and Delmon Young will bat cleanup for the second time in three games. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the revamped roster gives the club its best opportunity against Toronto left-handed Mark Buehrle. Young is a career .396 hitter (19-for-48) with four homers and eight RBIs against Buehrle. Nelson Cruz, who is still batting fifth, is mired in a 1-for-32 slump.

TORONTO - Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is slated to start the Orioles' regular-season finale against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter plans to give his relievers some work on Saturday and Sunday, with a three-day layoff looming before the playoffs start, so it's unclear how deep Gonzalez will go. “Obviously, Toronto will have something to say about that, but it won't be a normal outing,” Showalter said....

TORONTO -- Explaining how right-hander Drew Hutchison has dominated the Orioles over his past five games against them seemed pretty easy for manager Buck Showalter after his team's 5-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night at the Rogers Centre. “He's a very good pitcher,” Showalter said. “When he's one of five [starters] of 30 major league teams, you're talking about the best pitchers in the world. He's obviously capable of that. I'm sure we'll see him a couple more times.” Still, just how Hutchison -- who has a 5.29 ERA against all other teams besides the Orioles this season -- has been so masterful against Showalter's club is baffling.

TORONTO -- This time of the year in Toronto, fans typically are gearing up for preseason hockey camps and satisfying their need for sports with the Canadian Football League. In other words, the Blue Jays haven't been relevant this late in the season in a long time. So when the first-place Orioles arrived Tuesday to open a three-game series between the top two teams in the American League East standings, there was some unusual buzz at the Rogers Centre. Fans lined in front of the ticket counter four hours before the game.

TORONTO -- Tony La Russa has to love this. The Oakland Athletics, the erstwhile Brothers of Bash, are cast as underdogs in the American League Championship Series that begins tonight at SkyDome. Such a deal.The A's are back in the playoffs, and they don't even have to carry around that muscle-bound image that weighed so heavily on them during their surprising World Series losses to the Los Angeles Dodgers (1988) and Cincinnati Reds (1990).La Russa may have the Toronto Blue Jays just where he wants them.

First baseman Christian Walker was called up to a division-winning team in September to help give some players a break in the final 10 days of the season. Walker, 23, immediately was inserted into the Orioles' lineup Wednesday night. He struck out in his first at-bat and hit a flyout in his second. But in his third trip to the plate, in the seventh inning against Toronto Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ, Walker laced a double down the left-field line for his first major league hit. “It was exciting, you know.

The big news Monday night was that the Orioles won again and have reduced their magic number for clinching the American League East to one over the Toronto Blue Jays. The New York Yankees have been eliminated from the division title hunt. With the Orioles' next win, the champagne corks pop and the club secures its first AL East crown since 1997. The subplot from Monday was perhaps more intriguing. In the fifth inning, veteran infielder Jose Reyes came dashing home on a single and catcher Caleb Joseph attempted to tag him out. Fairly routine play.

All the postseason math - all the talk of magic numbers and scoreboard watching - is now a thing of the past. Just one win now separates the Orioles and their first American League East division title since 1997. Opening up their three-game series with the second-place Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night at Camden Yards, the Orioles' path to the postseason was simple: Win two of the games and punch a ticket to the playoffs. And the Orioles took one humongous step Monday toward winning the division with their 5-2 win over Toronto, giving the club an opportunity to clinch a division title with a win Tuesday.

Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez hasn't made a start in nearly a month - and he has made just two relief appearances since then - but he said he's ready for Tuesday's spot start against the Toronto Blue Jays. “The only thing I can do is think about that game and go out and do my job,” Jimenez said. “That's why I always have the same approach. I don't think about that I haven't pitched in a while or anything like that. I have to go out there and find a way, find a way to compete, find a way to do my job.” Jimenez last pitched Aug. 31 - when he allowed four of the five batters he faced to reach base in mop-up duty in a 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins - but he said he has remained fresh by throwing bullpen sessions every two to three days, mostly after games.

The Orioles lost Saturday and the Toronto Blue Jays won. That means the Orioles' magic number - the combination of wins and Toronto Blue Jays losses - for clinching the American League East stays at five. To be able to clinch without having to sweep the Blue Jays in their three-game series starting Monday, the Orioles would need to win Sunday (or get some outisde help from the Tampa Bay Rays this week). The earliest the Orioles can clinch is Tuesday. Basically, if the Orioles have a magic number of four entering the Toronto series, then so long as the Orioles win two of three against Toronto, they eliminate the Blue Jays.

The start of today's Orioles game against the New York Yankees has been pushed back to an estimated 1:40 p.m. because of rain. Scattered showers are forecast throughout the day. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez will fill the Orioles' open starting slot on Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays, manager Buck Showalter announced before Saturday's game. Following Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees, the Oriole needed a starter for Tuesday and selected Jimenez over left-handed relievers T.J. McFarland and Joe Saunders.

Brian Roberts was hit on the left foot or ankle by Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Jesse Litsch in the bottom of the sixth inning and limped off the field to a loud ovation. Clearly, the crowd recognized the possibility that fans were seeing the last appearance by Roberts in an Orioles uniform. ... I think the Orioles will sign him to an extension in the next few months.

Ubaldo Jimenez, who has made just two relief appearances since being moved to the bullpen nearly a month ago, will receive at least one more start before the regular season ends. The right-hander will start Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Orioles manager Buck Showalter selected Jimenez over left-handed relievers T.J. McFarland and Joe Saunders. “We feel like it disrupts our bullpen the least; we think that he's the most equipped lengthwise,” Showalter said. “We feel like he's better equipped to pitch that part than say behind Mac or Joe. Also, we think he's our best option to win the game.

With a doubleheader sweep of the New York Yankees at Camden Yards on Friday combined with the Toronto Blue Jays' 1-0 loss at home against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Orioles magic number is five. Five. What that means is if they go just 5-3 in the remaining eight games on this homestand they have clinched their first American League East title since 1997. They don't need anyone else's help so long as they go 5-3. Put it another way. If they win just one of their remaining two against the Yankees this weekend and then beat the Blue Jays two of three from Monday to Wednesday, the Orioles are AL East champs.
