More details on how Davis helped accident victims

I'm sitting here wondering how many waterproof garments I can stuff into my laptop bag before heading to Camden Yards this afternoon. I may scotchgard my entire body. I'm too big to be laminated. I already checked. I'm also contemplating what's worse: Rookie Marcus Stroman's fastball behind Caleb Joseph's head last night or the Blue Jays trying to defend it. I'll go with the fastball. ... read more

Steve Johnson to undergo surgery to remove lesion behind shoulder

As the Orioles gradually expanded their September roster and assigned pitchers and position players to their taxi squad in Sarasota, right-hander Steve Johnson was one of the more prominent names missing from either list. He wasn't coming to Camden Yards and he wasn't working out at the Ed Smith Stadium complex. Johnson, 27, was bothered this summer by tendinitis in his shoulder that forced him ... read more

Showalter on Chen, the chance to clinch and Stroman's pitch

The Orioles' magic number for clinching the American League East is Al Bumbry. The Orioles held their composure tonight and defeated the Blue Jays 5-2 before 25,061 at Camden Yards. A win on Tuesday night gives Baltimore its first division title since 1997. The Yankees lost tonight and were eliminated from the race. Wei-Yin Chen won his 16th game, Zach Britton earned his 35th save, ... read more

Tempers flaring at Camden Yards (O's win 5-2, magic number is one)

The Orioles are trying to win a game tonight while not losing their composure. This is going to be a challenge. Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes became angry at catcher Caleb Joseph in the top of the fifth inning after diving across the plate to score on Danny Valencia's two-out single. Reyes' left hand slammed into Joseph's foot, leaving him in obvious pain. Reyes apparently ... read more

Showalter on walk-off wins and team chemistry (Flaherty homers)

As Wei-Yin Chen takes the mound tonight for the Orioles, let's point out that the rotation has registered a 1.59 ERA and 11 quality starts in the last 13 games. No pressure. Last night, Kelly Johnson delivered the Orioles' 10th walk-off win of the season. The 10 walk-offs, against seven teams, are tied for fourth in the majors with the Pirates and Angels. They trail ... read more

Showalter one win away from tying Martin on all-time list

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Chris Davis will report to the Sarasota complex between Friday and Monday. Davis is flying back to Texas first before heading to Florida for workouts and instructional league games. The Orioles also can set up simulated games. Showalter may adjust the rotation following Thursday's off-day. He already met with Chris Tillman after last night's game. Also, the Orioles could add ... read more

Orioles lineup vs. Blue Jays

Kelly Johnson remains at third base tonight as the Orioles open a three-game series against the Blue Jays at Camden Yards. Johnson hit a walk-off double last night to beat the Yankees 3-2 and lower the Orioles' magic number to three. The number will go down to one if the Orioles win tonight. The Orioles lead the season series 7-6, going 3-4 in Baltimore and ... read more

Learning more about De Aza

As we continue to speculate about the Orioles' postseason roster, making the bold assumption that they wrap up the division, it's obvious that outfielder Alejandro De Aza must be included on it. Of course, that's assuming he avoids an injury or a suspension, and that he doesn't vaporize. De Aza hit safely in his first eight games with the Orioles, batting 13-for-33 (.394) with a ... read more
