Finding it necessary to make sweeping changes in their farm system, the Orioles' front office broke out a pretty big broom. Five of the organization's seven minor-league affiliates will have new managers for the 2003 season, including Triple-A Ottawa, which replaced Rochester as the Orioles' highest-level team. Only Joe Almaraz at Single-A Aberdeen and Jesus Alfaro with Rookie-level Gulf Coast return to the same jobs. The massive overhaul, ranking among the most drastic in franchise history, comes after the affiliates combined to finish 102 games below .500, a handful of prospects were shut down because of injuries and the Red Wings ended their 42-year relationship with the Orioles.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Chris Roberson played right field in college, and that's where he made his three starts with the Philadelphia Phillies last season. But his first choice with the Orioles would be center field, where he appeared in 106 games at Triple-A Ottawa. Not that Roberson is used to getting everything he wants. Roberson, 28, dresses in the same row of lockers as Nick Markakis and Adam Jones. He knows that if he's going to make the club as a nonroster player, it will likely be as a reserve.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Orioles made seven cuts yesterday, sending out a young slugger to receive more at-bats in the minors and a pitcher to get reacquainted with the starting rotation. Jack Cust, obtained from the Colorado Rockies two weeks ago, was optioned to Triple-A Ottawa along with left-hander Eric DuBose and outfielder Luis Matos. A reliever last season and during five weeks of spring training, DuBose will be used as a starter with the Lynx. Pitchers Darwin Cubillan and Mike Garcia, catcher Izzy Molina and infielder Eddy Garabito, all nonroster invitees, were reassigned to the minor-league camp in Sarasota, Fla. The decision on Cust, who appeared in 35 games with the Rockies last season, further cemented B.J. Surhoff's place on the Opening Day roster.

Daniel Cabrera has one more start left, one more chance to show the Orioles that he has progressed rather than regressed in what was supposed to be his breakthrough season. There have been times this year when improvement and positives have been hard to find, lost among mounting walk totals and extended stretches of faulty control. Still, there are too many signs of hope for the Orioles to do anything but keep sending Cabrera to the mound and hope that he figures it all out. Manager Sam Perlozzo feels that his 25-year-old pitcher is close to doing just that, citing the Orioles' 7-3 victory Friday night over the Minnesota Twins before 21,051 at Camden Yards as another example.

Top pitching prospect Hayden Penn has apparently made his last start this season at Triple-A Ottawa. A day after the 21-year-old pitched eight shutout innings for the Lynx, Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo said he doesn't feel Penn needs any more minor league starts. At this point, the Orioles' plan is to call him up when rosters expand Friday and plug him into the starting rotation. Anything after that - such as whom the young right-hander will replace in the rotation, if anybody at all - has not been decided yet. "We'll have to figure out a way to get him in there," Perlozzo said.

Down on the farm: Luis Terrero homered twice for Triple-A Ottawa yesterday in an 11-1 victory over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Andy Tracy hit his 13th homer, and Fernando Tatis added his seventh. Tracy, a first baseman, was acquired from the Cleveland Indians during spring training. He could be another one of those 4-A players, someone who's too good for Triple-A and not good enough for the majors, but I'm becoming a little more intrigued by him. roch.kubatko@baltsun.com For more "Roch Around the Clock," go to baltimoresun.

Washington -- A sports axiom says that to be a good team, you have to dominate those below you. By that measure, the Orioles are doing quite nicely. Including last night's loss to the Washington Nationals, the Orioles are 15-7 against teams with winning percentages of .500 or below but only 5-16 against winning teams. Now is the time to fatten up some more on the major leagues' bottom feeders. The Orioles have just begun a 13-game stretch against the Nationals, Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles Angels and Tampa Bay Devil Rays, teams that stand a combined 33 games under .500.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- It happened about three days later than the team had hoped, but Chris Britton officially joined the team before yesterday's game and will be asked to bolster the Orioles' struggling bullpen. "It's always a surprise," said Britton, who had six strikeouts in 2 1/3 innings at Double-A Bowie this season. "I'm glad to be here, but it's a big surprise." The 23-year-old, who was the Orioles' eighth-round pick in the 2001 draft, was recalled after Tuesday night's game, with Cory Morris being optioned to Triple-A Ottawa.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Hoping to have his contract situation settled one way or the other by the end of this week, Orioles third baseman Melvin Mora said that he will give the club a few more days before cutting off the talks. Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos is expected to return from Europe later this week, and Mora, who is entering the last year of his contract, expressed hope that his return could lead to getting a deal done. The All-Star third baseman has made it clear that he wants to stay in Baltimore, but would leave for free agency if he doesn't get what he feels is a fair deal.

Orioles interim manager Sam Perlozzo gave Sammy Sosa last night off, something that could become more common in the last two months of the season. "I told him that I'd be trying to get him a day," said Perlozzo, who used recent call-up Alejandro Freire at first base, David Newhan in right field and Jay Gibbons as designated hitter for last night's series finale against the Devil Rays. "I wanted to give him a day off in Texas in the heat and he insisted that he really wanted to play. After three days in the heat, I told him that I was going to give him today off."
