Right-handed pitcher Rick VandenHurk, who was designated for assignment last week when the Orioles signed infielder Wilson Betemit, cleared waivers and was released Friday. He becomes a free agent and can sign with another team.

Zach Britton (credits below) Nothing seems to change in O-Town each year we discuss the starting pitching rotation. Good young talent filled with question marks and mediocrity is the norm in Baltimore. This year Jeremy Guthrie will lead the pack as the team's ace but how things shape up behind him still remains to be seen. I honestly can not find a pitcher in this rotation worth...
It is no secret to the long-suffering Oriole fan that a major factor in all the losing of late has been due to the team trotting out the most wretched pitching staff in the league for most of the past 14 seasons. Indeed, the team's collected hurlers have been unable to post a team ERA that ranked above 13th in the 14 team American League over the past four seasons. Could that...

The Orioles maintain some interest in slugger Manny Ramirez and have had internal conversations, but there are plenty of issues that would have to be rectified before the club would make a decision on whether to even offer him a contract.
Dan Duquette has a plan. It is not the plan that many wanted. Prince Fielder is not part of that plan, neither is trading Adam Jones or Jeremy Guthrie. No, but Duquette has a plan.
