The Orioles will recall right-handed reliever Preston Guilmet from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday to provide the club with some bullpen depth, according to an industry source. The team optioned left-hander T.J. McFarland to Norfolk after he threw three relief innings in the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros on Sunday . The Orioles will make the move official before Monday's series opener against the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards. Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated after the loss that the team was planning to make a roster move to add a right-handed reliever for this week's three-game series against the Tigers, preferably one who could give the bullpen some length. Over the past several days, the Orioles have had four left-handers in the bullpen.

After he pitched three innings Sunday against the Houston Astros, the Orioles optioned left-hander T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk. The club wanted options in its bullpen for the upcoming three-game series against the Detroit Tigers -- and especially a right-hander who can serve in long relief. With McFarland sent down, the Orioles currently have no designated long men and still have three left-handers in the bullpen. Candidates to be called up could include Josh Stinson, assuming the club places him back on the 40-man roster, as well as Steve Johnson, who recently returned from injury, and Suk-min Yoon, who has struggled with consistency.

After the Orioles' doubleheader sweep, manager Buck Showalter said pitching prospect Kevin Gausman was dealing with chest tightness Thursday at Triple-A Norfolk and was diagnosed with an intercostal muscle strain. Gausman, 23, will miss at least one start and, if it doesn't improve, he could end up on the minor league disabled list. He is 0-1 with a 2.53 ERA in five starts for the Tides. In his last game April 26, Gausman was limited to just 75 pitches and 4 2/3 scoreless innings.

The Orioles have posted the lineup for Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Pirates today, and Manny Machado is not in it. Fans likely will have to wait until the second game to see Machado start for the first time this season, though he was activated before the first game for his first major league action since Sept. 23. Manager Buck Showalter said he didn't want Machado to play 18 innings on his first day back. In a corresponding move, infielder Steve Lombardozzi (Atholton) has been optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles activated left-hander Troy Patton between the two games of the doubleheader Thursday after he completed a 25-game suspension for testing positive for Adderall use. The Orioles' first game Thursday was their 25th of the season, meaning Patton had to be activated before the nightcap. To make room for Patton on the roster, the club outrighted right-hander Josh Stinson, who cleared waivers, to Triple-A Norfolk. Stinson had a 7.15 ERA in 11 1/3 innings over seven appearances with the Orioles this year.

NEW YORK -- The Orioles are expected make a roster move Wednesday to place a player on the 15-day disabled list, but manager Buck Showalter wouldn't disclose the player following the team's 14-5 win over the New York Yankees on Tuesday afternoon. Utility player Jemile Weeks was not in Triple-A Norfolk's lineup Tuesday night, and he was making his way north to join the club for Wednesday's game, according to an industry source. The only available position player who didn't play in Tuesday's win was outfielder David Lough, who was 0-for-3 and played the entire game Monday in the club's 4-2 loss to the Yankees.

Right-hander Kevin Gausman was scratched from his scheduled start for Triple-A Norfolk tonight. With inclement weather expected Friday in Detroit, he could join the Orioles and be available to pitch in a possible doubleheader against the Tigers on Saturday. Gausman, one of the final cuts in spring training, was set to start the Tides' season opener in Norfolk, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter called Norfolk manager Ron Johnson this afternoon to tell him the club might need Gausman this weekend.

Chris Tillman knows it will be a special moment Monday afternoon when he takes the mound at Camden Yards to officially open another baseball season in Baltimore. But all of the festivities - running through the outfield on the orange carpet, the sellout crowd and the optimism that accompanies a new season - will all take a back seat once he stares in to catcher Matt Wieters for the first time. "The baseball field is our home," Tillman said. "That's where we feel comfortable at. " There is a certain cachet that comes with being named Opening Day starter, but you wouldn't know it from listening to him speak.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles made a pair of significant roster cuts following Wednesday's 7-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, optioning South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon and catcher Johnny Monell to Triple-A Norfolk. The club also reassigned non-roster outfielder Xavier Paul to minor league camp. Yoon, 27, signed a three-year, $5.575 million deal with the Orioles last month, but he couldn't pitch in a Grapefruit League game until getting his work visa, a tedious process that sent him to Canada for four days and was just completed last week.
