Arrieta could debut for Orioles


Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun is hearing that right-hander Jake Arrieta is likely to make his major league debut on Thursday against the Yankees. Jeremy Guthrie is currently listed as the starter for that game, but could be pushed back a day with Brian Matusz going Saturday. The Orioles currently have no starter listed for Saturday after announcing that Brad Bergesen was being banished to the bullpen.

Arrieta, 25, is 6-2 with a 1.85 ERA this season for Triple-A Norfolk.

Teixeira backs up talk


Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has been a little testy as of late , but a trip to his hometown (not to mention a night of Orioles pitching) may bring a smile back to his face.

Teixeira went 3 for 4 with a home run and two RBI in the Yankees' 12-7 victory over Baltimore, raising his average to .220.

Outlook not good for Orioles' Roberts

The Orioles said second baseman Brian Roberts will undergo more tests on his injured back, which has limited him to just 14 at-bats this season. The two-time All-Star hasn't played since April 9.

Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel said the news was "not very good," but the team has not said anything about the possibility of surgery. It looks like Roberts, who is on the 60-day DL, is nowhere near returning and could be done for the year.

Your non-Harper draft begins with RHP

The Pirates took Texas high school right-hander Jameson Taillon with the second pick, meaning the Baltimore Orioles will likely take shortstop Manny Machado and then the rest of the mock drafts fall to pieces.

For the last month, most of the draft has been cut down to three phases: Bryce Harper hype, Tallion or Machado and then the rest.

With Taillon and Machado out of the way, the college players will start to be taken off the board.
