Orioles clean out their lockers, head home

Today was clean out your locker day for the Orioles. With the Baltimore Marathon clogging streets near Oriole Park, the Orioles were advised to clean out their belongings later on Saturday afternoon.

By then, the marathon runners were gone. By the time the media was allowed in the clubhouse, only a handful of players, the true marathon men, were around.

Wei-Yin Chen and his translator, Tim Lin were there. So were Troy Patton and Lew Ford. Matt Wieters and Darren O’Day came by later.

Some of the players would come by later. Others presumably cleaned their belongings out when the team arrived home early Saturday morning.

Only Steve Johnson and Nick Markakis live in the area full-time. Brian Roberts splits time between Baltimore and Sarasota, Fla. Most of the others quickly leave the area.

Not Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter. Both met with the press on Saturday to talk about the season.

Showalter’s off-season plans include a partial right knee replacement on Wednesday. He had the left one replaced two years ago. Showalter will stay around his Baltimore County home for a few weeks to work on planning for next season.

He’ll presumably be around to collect the AL Manager of the Year Award next month.

What he won’t do is be glued to the television for the playoffs. He might occasionally tune in, but won’t watch every pitch.

He was thinking about attending the Cowboys-Ravens game on Sunday, helping plan his daughter’s wedding this winter and contemplating next season.

Orioles Roundup: Bullpen blows early five run lead

The Orioles had a five-run lead, but the bullpen was unable to hold it. The Yankees scored nine runs in the final four innings, leading their way to a 10-7 victory.

Here is your latest news on Baltimore and New York:

Player Notes:

ORIOLES:

Hanser Alberto had a career night in the loss. He had a career-best four hits and finished a triple short of the cycle.

Mark Trumbo could return to the field sooner than expected. He's expected to start some extended spring training games soon, with rehab starts to soon follow after that.

YANKEES:

Gleyber Torres hit his eighth home run of the season against Baltimore. It's still May.

Gary Sanchez completed the comeback for the Yankees, putting them ahead for good with a three-run home run in the ninth. He finished with four RBIs.

Miguel Andujar underwent successful surgery on his labrum on Monday. While he won't play again this season, he should be ready for spring training next season.

For the first time in his career, Troy Tulowitzki could play a position other than shortstop. He recently approached the Yankees brass and told them he'd be open to playing another position when he returns from injury, as Didi Gregorius is expected to return soon.

Injuries: 

SP Alex Cobb: Back, 10-Day IL

SP Nate Karns: Arm, 10-Day IL

DH Mark Trumbo: Knee, 60-Day IL
