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.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The Orioles really want Ubaldo Jimenez to pitch enough innings this spring, and they aren't going to let the weather mess with his schedule. Jimenez, who didn't sign with the Orioles until Feb. 19, has appeared in just two games and thrown only four innings so far. Originally, the right-hander was supposed to pitch Monday night in Sarasota against the Minnesota Twins, but there is a steady threat of rain for most of the day in the area. So, the Orioles are getting a little creative.

A day after Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette mentioned Cord Phelps as an option for the starting second base job, the Orioles outrighted the 25-year-old to Triple-A Norfolk after he cleared waivers. Duquette said once the club acquired Jemile Weeks in the Jim Johnson trade last week, it had a reasonable chance of slipping Phelps through waivers. The Orioles currently have 37 players on the 40-man roster, but will likely add reliever Ryan Webb today once he passes his physical.

Harbor Park, the home of the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate Norfolk Tides, is currently undergoing a major facelift that should affect the way games are played there. While a new natural playing surface is being installed for the first time since the stadium opened back in 1993, the outfield fences also will be moved in 10 feet in center field and the left-center and right-center field power alleys. Harbor Park's current dimensions -- 333 feet to left, 410 to center and 318 feet to right -- don't seem imposing and are on par with Camden Yards, but it has long had the reputation of being a pitcher's ballpark.

The Orioles have reinstated right-hander Eric Beaulac from the 15-day disabled list and outrighted him to Triple-A Norfolk. The move is purely clerical. The major league club selected Beaulac's contract from Double-A Bowie on Sept. 1 and immediately placed him on the 15-day disabled list in a move that would have created an extra injury replacement spot for a postseason roster.   In creating their 25-man rosters for the postseason, clubs could use DL spots to add players not on the major league roster by Sept.

CLEVELAND - The Orioles recalled left-hander Zach Britton from Triple-A Norfolk before Monday's game to add another bullpen arm. Britton, who was originally slated to  start in today's Tides game, arrived in Cleveland this morning. He will be available out of the pen today. Britton was 2-3 with a 4.76 in six starts for the Orioles this season. He was 6-5 with a 4.27 ERA in 19 starts at Norfolk. He's coming off back-to-back starts of seven innings and allowing just one earned run. The 25-year-old Britton was called up late last season to work out of the pen, so he's used to pitching in relief at the major league level.

When the Orioles sent outfielder-designated hitter Henry Urrutia back to Triple-A Norfolk after Friday night's loss to the Colorado Rockies, it ended the Cuban defector's first stint in major league baseball. After batting .365 in the minor leagues, Urrutia hit .269 in 52 at-bats over 21 games with the Orioles with only one extra-base hit. He had three multihit performances, including a three-hit night July 22 in his second career start at Kansas City. “I think Henry needs to go back and get where he was, and he will,” manager Buck Showalter said.
