BALTIMORE (AP) -- Buck Showalter was hired to manage the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday, his latest rebuilding project in a major league career full of them. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said Showalter's first game will be Tuesday night at Camden Yards against the Los Angeles Angels. Baltimore had the worst record in the majors at 31-70 going into Thursday night against Kansas City and is headed toward its 13th straight losing season. The Orioles fired manager Dave Trembley on June 4 and replaced him on an interim basis with Juan Samuel.

Mark Reynolds is taking his big swings to Baltimore. The Orioles acquired the strikeout-prone slugger from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday for right-handed relievers David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio in a trade between last-place teams trying to upgrade in different ways. “We needed to improve our offense,” Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said. “We think Mark Reynolds very much represents that.” There is no doubt that Reynolds can hit the ball a long way — when he hits it, that is. Reynolds has averaged nearly 35 homers for the last three years.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- During an offseason in which they failed in their pursuit of a hometown slugger, the Baltimore Orioles did the next best thing: secure homegrown right fielder Nick Markakis for the next six seasons. Markakis and Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail sat shoulder to shoulder Thursday during a news conference at Camden Yards. Markakis called it a "fairly easy decision" to accept $66.1 million for six years, and MacPhail spoke delightedly about locking up the team's former No. 1 pick through 2014.

BALTIMORE -- Andy MacPhail grew up an Orioles fan during a time when the team achieved success by drawing talent from the minor leagues. Now president of baseball operations, MacPhail is intent upon helping Baltimore return to prominence the Oriole Way -- back when the organization groomed young players for the major leagues. Several of Baltimore's best arms will start the season playing Triple-A or Double-A ball. Instead of thrusting prospects such as Brian Matusz and Brad Bergesen onto the mound to pitch against the Boston Red Sox, MacPhail will take his chances with a makeshift starting rotation that could include castoffs Mark Hendrickson, Adam Eaton and Alfredo Simon.

BALTIMORE -- It's fun to be a member of the Baltimore Orioles again. An influx of youth has created a sense of optimism within a franchise that hasn't had a winning season since 1997. While the arrival of former No. 1 draft pick Matt Wieters last Friday created a national buzz in Baltimore, the rebirth of the Orioles began several weeks earlier. That's when the team began to rework a rotation that included journeymen Adam Eaton and Mark Hendrickson. Eaton is gone and Hendrickson is in the bullpen.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Cal Ripken Jr. is exploring the possibility of joining the Baltimore Orioles as a part-time adviser, which would ease his transition into a permanent position after his son graduates from high school in 2012. Ripken, who turns 50 next month, has been meeting on a regular basis with Orioles owner Peter Angelos and president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail. The conversations have centered on finding the Hall of Fame infielder a position in the front office on the team he played for throughout his 21-year career.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A wretched first half has taken much of the mystery out of the 2010 season for the Baltimore Orioles. The possibility of securing a winning record for the first time in 13 years ended with a 2-16 start, and manager Dave Trembley was fired on June 4 after Baltimore slipped to 24 games below .500. Although the Orioles took a four-game winning streak into the All-Star break and were a less-than-awful 14-20 under interim manager Juan Samuel, they still own the worst record in the majors (29-59)

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Dave Trembley was fired Friday as manager of the Baltimore Orioles, who have the worst record in the major leagues and are staggering toward a franchise-record 13th consecutive losing season. Third base coach Juan Samuel was appointed interim manager by president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail, who hired Trembley to take over on an interim basis for Sam Perlozzo on June 18, 2007. The Orioles opened with 16 losses in 18 games, are 15-39 and coming off an 0-6 road trip in which they were outscored 34-8 in Toronto and at Yankee Stadium.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Dave Trembley sat through 93 losses last year, and his second full season as manager of the rebuilding Baltimore Orioles may not be much different. No one could blame Trembley for wondering if bouncing around for 20 years in the minors before getting the job was worth it. Yet, as he drove from his home in Daytona Beach to Fort Lauderdale last month for the start of spring training, Trembley recalled thinking: "How did this happen? How lucky am I? Whatever happens to me, that will never change.
