Hammel -- who came to Baltimore with a...

Joe Saunders’ offseason has been spent golfing, working out, entertaining at his Arizona home and being a father to his 2-year-old and 4-year-old girls.
He can’t say he hasn’t thought about where he’ll be reporting to spring...

Orioles manager Buck Showalter pondered the question and then deftly evaded it.
Just how good do you think right-hander Jason Hammel has a chance to be?

The losing became so persistent that Martha Macgill pulled herself from the rotation of Episcopal clergy who regularly attended ball games at Camden Yards.

The Orioles' official reporting day has been uneventful, so far. Some players are working out already, but the first organized pitcher/catcher workout will be Wednesday afternoon, following physicals.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles’ clouded roster picture became a lot clearer Wednesday with a couple obvious proclamations, one health setback and a top prospect heading to Double-A.

My guess is I am averaging about five questions a day for the past two weeks on the Orioles' pursuit of left-handed pitcher Joe Saunders. Pretty incredible considering when the Orioles dealt reliever Matt Lindstrom to Arizona for Saunders last August, the...
