After watching pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada struggle through his first four starts at Triple-A Norfolk, the Orioles are considering giving the Japanese left-hander extra days of rest in between starts. Wada has failed to go more than five innings in any of his four injury rehab starts. In his most recent start Friday night against Buffalo, Wada allowed six runs - four earned - and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings. In 17 2/3 innings overall, Wada has 12 strikeouts and 10 walks and opponents are hitting .288 against him. “We're going to take a look at his rest periods and see if there's anything there to consider,” Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said.

CHICAGO -- Being swept out of the Windy City this weekend by a Chicago Cubs team already auditioning for 2015 roster spots didn't sit well with Orioles manager Buck Showalter. By the end of their 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles had seen enough of historic Wrigley Field. Held hitless by former teammate Tsuyoshi Wada for six innings, they managed just one hit overall on the day. The Orioles (73-55) left Chicago having scored just one run -- Steve Pearce's seventh-inning solo home run, which broke up Wada's no-hit bid -- over 16 innings after play resumed Saturday following a three-hour, nine-minute rain delay.

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, threw 15 pitches from a half mound on Friday as scheduled. It was Wada's third bullpen session from a half mound. He's slated to throw from a full mound for the first time in his rehab on Monday. As in his previous three half-mound sessions, he began with throwing long toss on Friday. “I feel like it's gradually getting better and better day by day.” Wada said through interpreter Seob Yoon. “Today was more like getting ready for Monday.

CHICAGO -- The Orioles will play against two familiar faces in their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field this weekend. Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta is scheduled to start Friday's series opener, and left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is set to start Sunday. Arrieta, who was traded to the Cubs along with reliever Pedro Strop in July 2013 for right-hander Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, has emerged as the Cubs' ace. Arrieta struggled to maintain consistency with the Orioles, but he is 6-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 starts this season.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada's recovery from Tommy John surgery is expected to take a significant step forward next week. Wada is slated to make one more start in extended spring training on Friday and after that he will likely be assigned to one of the team's minor-league affiliates to begin a rehab assignment. On Friday, Wada will go between five and seven innings and throw about 80 pitches, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "He looks good," Showalter said.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Before the Orioles' Grapefruit League game against the Yankees on Monday afternoon, left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada threw from a full mound for the first time in more than 10 months. Wada, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, last threw from a mound during a rehab assignment at Triple-A Norfolk on April 19. He lasted just 2 2/3 innings that day, allowing six runs on six hits and walking four. "I haven't thrown in a long time on the mound, so I was actually very happy and it was very fun,” Wada said through translator Seob Yoon.

In his sixth rehabilitation start for Triple-A Norfolk, left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada allowed eight runs (seven earned) on six hits and two walks at Indianapolis. Wada struck out two batters and allowed a grand slam to Brett Carroll in the first inning. He's allowed at least three runs in five of his six rehab starts and has an 8.14 ERA with the Tides. Wada, 32, had Tommy John surgery last May. He signed a two-year, $8.15 million contract with the Orioles before the 2012 season but has never thrown a pitch for the Orioles.

As expected, the Orioles have declined left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada's $5-million option for next season, the club announced on Saturday evening. Wada, signed as an international free agent for a two-year, $8.14-million deal before the 2012 season, never threw a pitch in a regular season game for the Orioles. His Orioles career was riddled by injury. He began his first major league season on the disabled list, then had season-ending Tommy John surgery on his left elbow in May 2012.

Left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada, a former Japanese All Star who signed a two-year deal with the Orioles last offseason but didn't pitch because of an elbow injury, threw off a full mound again Saturday. And manager Buck Showalter was there to watch the side session. “Pretty impressive. He's throwing the ball, fastball and changeup, and that's pretty fun to watch him throw because it just reminds me of what he can be for us,” Showalter said of Wada, who had Tommy John surgery in May. “He's got a chance to be pretty good.

CHICAGO-- Nick Markakis' catch to rob a home run in Monday's 8-2 win over the Chicago White Sox received some national attention. While Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Markakis deserves that recognition, the right fielder often shuns it. Not only did Markakis rob Conor Gillaspie of a potential two-run homer Monday, but he also had a three-hit game, including a two-run home run and a pair of hits off tough left-hander Chris Sale. Markakis entered Tuesday with a 10-game hit streak and was hitting .415/.493/.615 in the month of August.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- On the eve of the first workout for pitchers and catchers this spring, the Orioles once again traveled an international route Thursday in an attempt to improve their pitching staff, agreeing to terms with South Korean right-handed pitcher Suk-min Yoon on a three-year deal, according to an industry source. The Orioles' agreement with the 27-year-old is worth $5.575 million guaranteed over the three years and is pending a club physical, the source said. The Orioles have not officially announced the deal.

In another episode of how the Orioles' offseason turns, Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon posted a "selfie" Twitter photo Tuesday night of him wearing an Orioles hat and flashing the peace sign. The caption apparently reads “ta-da.” There was no confirmation in the United States or Korea on Tuesday that the 27-year-old Yoon, a former Most Valuable Player of the Korea Baseball Organization, has indeed signed a deal with the Orioles. One source said Tuesday night that the club is negotiating with Yoon, but no deal has been reached -- not even pending a physical.

The Orioles have enough interest in signing Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon that they have made him an offer, according to an industry source. Yoon has received multiple offers to pitch in the major leagues in 2014, but he has not yet made a decision, a source said. That could come within the next several days. Along with representatives from the San Francisco Giants, the Orioles attended a private workout for Yoon in California last week. Club officials wanted to make sure that Yoon, a 27-year-old who reportedly has a fastball in the low 90s, was healthy.

The bidding for Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka ends on Jan. 24. The Orioles won't be in on it. Tanaka, who is 25 and was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA in 28 games (27 starts) for the Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan's Pacific League last season, is probably in line for a seven-year contract that will push well above $100 million. Considering the Orioles have never gone beyond three years for a MLB free-agent pitcher, Tanaka is well out of their comfort zone. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said that - point blank - earlier this month.

The Orioles have added more depth for the organization, signing left-handed hitting outfielder Xavier Paul to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training, according to a SportsNet Canada report. The Orioles are expected to announce several minor league signings at some point this week, including infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr. and Paul. Paul, 28, is a 2003 fourth-round pick by the Los Angeles Dodgers who has hit .254 with a .316 on-base percentage in parts of five seasons with the Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds.

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada, who is recovering from last May's Tommy John surgery, will make his first minor league rehab start for Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday afternoon at Lehigh Valley. It will be the first time Wada pitches in a minor league game since last April, when he lasted just 2 2/3 innings in a minor league rehab start for Norfolk. Wada, a former standout in the Japanese Pacific League who signed a two-year, $8.14 million contract before the 2012 season, has yet to pitch in a regular season game for the Orioles.

The intrigue surrounding the 2014 options on pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada and infielder Alexi Casilla is more about when it happens than what happens. The Orioles are expected to decline Wada's $5 million option and Casilla's $3 million option - and they must do it before Tuesday. It would be a huge surprise if the options weren't declined. I'm hearing that an official announcement on Wada should come Saturday. An announcement on Casilla likely will come Monday. There's the end of the intrigue.
