As Orioles rookie first baseman Christian Walker strove this season to develop as a power hitter and solidify his future at first base, a position where power is paramount, he never strayed from the hitting approach that had earned him acclaim. Hitters desperate for power can end up getting pull-happy and sacrifice the bat-to-ball skills that had carried them so far, and Walker, in search of over-the-fence power, continued to focus his approach on hitting up the middle of the field.

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.

Roughly two weeks ago, first baseman Christian Walker was at Camden Yards picking up his Brooks Robinson Minor League Player of the Year Award. On Wednesday, he was in the Orioles' starting lineup, batting seventh and playing first base in his major league debut. “I'm just really excited. I'm really happy to be here, and I'm glad they decided I was going to come up,” Walker said. “I'm looking forward to anything that lies ahead in the next few weeks.” Walker, 23, hit .288 with a .357 on-base percentage, a .489 slugging percentage, 26 homers and 96 RBIs in 139 games at Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this year.

It took 48 hours, but the disciplinary sanctions the Orioles were hoping for were passed down by Major League Baseball on Wednesday. Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing at Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph's head in the sixth inning Monday. “Like I said the time, I had a lot of confidence MLB would look at it and do what needs to be done,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “I have a lot of confidence that when something like that happens, and emotions of players get in the way of good decisions, that the league office will remind them that certain things aren't tolerated.” After Stroman's 92-mph fastball sailed past Joseph's head, the rookie right-hander and both dugouts were warned by home plate umpire Ted Barrett.

The Orioles didn't initially expect to add one of their top position player prospects, first baseman Christian Walker, to their expanded roster this month. But with American League East wrapped up -- and 11 games remaining in the regular season -- the Orioles are expected to purchase Walker's contract from Triple-A Norfolk, according to a club source. Walker has been working out in Sarasota, Fla., as part of a taxi squad the Orioles could pluck from in case they needed an extra player.

By the middle of the fourth quarter of Morgan State's 28-3 win over Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday, running back Herb Walker Jr. had gained 118 yards, marking the third straight game in which the team had a 100-yard rusher. But with 3:27 left, the redshirt sophomore was stripped of the football by Bulldogs junior linebacker Robert Burke, and redshirt junior outside linebacker Jonathan Harris pounced on the loose ball at the Bears' 41-yard line. Normally, that might have been the end of the day for Walker as he had nothing left to prove and there seemed to be no point in putting him back in at risk of injury with Morgan State holding a 14-3 advantage.

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.

As one of the shortest players on the Morgan State football team, Herb Walker Jr. has a nickname among his Bears teammates: "Smurf. " The running back, who recently confessed to being 1 inch shorter than his already diminutive listed height of 5 feet 8, has heard worse from defenses. The insults don't bother him as much as the assumptions behind them. Opponents tell Walker he's "soft. Or I don't run hard," he said. "But they'll feel me when I get the ball. " Neither label fit after the 19-year-old Walker set a school record a week ago. In Morgan State's 26-23 loss Saturday to Holy Cross, 26-23, the sophomore rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.

The Orioles announced their organizational minor league player and pitcher of the year award winners Thursday. And while neither player started the season among the team's top 10 prospects, both worked their way to the doorstep of the major leagues with breakout years. First baseman Christian Walker was named the team's Brooks Robinson Player of the Year, while right-hander Tyler Wilson is the Jim Palmer Pitcher of the Year recipient. Walker, the Orioles' fourth-round selection from the University of South Carolina in 2012, hit .288/.357/.489 with 26 home runs and 96 RBIs in 139 games between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this season.
