It was 1910 when Alfredo Angelo Appetito Sr., then a 12-year-old boy, left his boyhood home of Segni, near Rome, and boarded a ship as a stowaway bound for the New World and a new life.It was a life that included heroic service as an infantryman during World War I, followed by a 45-year career as a welder at Bethlehem Steel Corp.'s Key Highway shipyard. It came to a quiet end Nov. 18 when Mr. Appetito died in his sleep at the Veterans Administration Hospital on Loch Raven Boulevard. He was 99.Landing in New York, the young Mr. Appetito disappeared into the crowds of the city and eventually made his way to Pennsylvania, where he located some cousins.

No matter how well the Orioles do this season, perhaps the most improbable moment of 2014 for those who have followed this club over the past several years occurred in the third inning of the All-Star Game in Minnesota in July - and it had little to do with the current Orioles. Cincinnati Reds right-hander Alfredo Simon stepped on the mound at Target Field as a National League All-Star and faced Derek Jeter, Mike Trout, Robinson Cano and Miguel Cabrera. He retired three of the four - Jeter singled - for a scoreless inning.

As he lathers up before surgery at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa mentally prepares himself to repair a living human brain. This one belongs to Robert Hawkins, a 28-year-old surfer from Vero Beach, Fla., who lies on an operating table with a tumor the size of an orange inside his head. The growth makes it difficult for Hawkins to control his left arm and left leg. But removing it takes hours and carries its own risks - a wrong move by the surgeon can ruin the cranial nerves that control Hawkins' movements, memory and ability to speak.

Anyone familiar with pitcher Alfredo Aceves' history in Boston knows the Orioles dodged a bullet when Aceves, a non-roster invitee to spring training this year, didn't make the 25-man roster. That the team wasn't relying on Aceves during this season proved beneficial, as Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reported that Aceves was suspended 50 games for a second positive test for a drug of abuse. Aceves was pitching for the Yankees in Triple-A at the time of his suspension, after being sent down with a 6.52 ERA in 10 appearances for the Yankees.

There's Classico Tomato Alfredo (sweet but garlicky) and Florentine Spinach & Cheese (tangy); Ragu Chunky Gardenstyle Tomato, Spinach & Cheese (cheaper than the other brands but too sweet for me); and the two best, in my opinion, Five Brothers Creamy Tomato Alfredo (thick and sweet)

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles have signed right-handed pitcher Alfredo Aceves to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training, according to an industry source. The 31-year-old Aceves split last season between the Boston Red Sox and Triple-A Pawtucket. He was 4-1 with a 4.86 ERA in 11 games (six starts) last season with the Red Sox and 4-2 with a 4.25 ERA in eight starts with 48 2/3 innings at Triple-A Pawtucket. Over his six-year career in the major leagues, Aceves has been mostly a reliever.

Former Orioles right-hander Alfredo Simon, who was placed on waivers on Friday, was claimed by the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday afternoon. There was little doubt that someone would claim Simon, who throws in the upper 90s and could be either a starter or reliever. And the Reds, who lost closer Ryan Madson for the year to Tommy John surgery, could use added bullpen help.   Simon entered the spring as one of a dozen candidates competing for a starting rotation spot and started in the Orioles' first spring training game, but he missed nine days after tweaking his groin during a night start March 18 against the Yankees.  In his first appearance back last Wednesday, Simon allowed six runs in two relief innings.

Orioles right-hander Alfredo Simon has been placed on waivers, according to multiple industry sources. He was put on outright waivers. No announcement is expected from the team until he is claimed or clears. Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said waiver information is confidential, but said as of now, Simon is on the Orioles' 40-man roster. He would not comment further. Simon recently missed nine games with a groin injury that forced him from a start against the Yankees on March 18. He returned on Wednesday, but allowed six runs on six hits in two innings of relief work.

Orioles right-hander Alfredo Simon, who hadn't pitched since March 10 because of a strained groin, re-aggravated the injury and came out of his start Sunday night after two innings. Simon said he didn't believe the injury is serious and that he hopes to make his next start, though he estimates he could miss a week. But with just seven innings thrown this spring, he is falling behind the competition for the rotation and/or a potential long-relief role. “I'm not sure about that.

Alfredo Simon pitched 3 2/3 scoreless innings in relief of Jake Arrieta during Monday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners, and his return has boosted an Orioles bullpen that has been a big disappointment in 2011. But the circumstances surrounding Simon's absence early in the season surely leave some fans feeling conflicted. Simon is accused of shooting and killing a man in the Dominican Republic on New Year’s Day, and he is expected to go to trial for manslaughter sometime this summer.

Even when he was imprisoned for two months as the chief suspect in a fatal New Year's Day shooting in his native Dominican Republic, Orioles reliever Alfredo Simon was confident that this day would come. Simon was activated from major league baseball's restricted list Saturday and was in the bullpen for the Orioles' afternoon game against the Washington Nationals. "Right now, I feel really happy I'm back with my teammates," said Simon, who went 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in three rehabilitation starts for Double-A Bowie.

An appeals court in the Dominican Republic has granted Alfredo Simon's request to be released on bail, according to news reports Thursday from Puerto Plata, where the Orioles reliever has been incarcerated since Jan. 3. Simon is to be freed as soon as he comes up with 2 million pesos, the equivalent of $53,333. It is not yet known whether Simon, suspected of fatally shooting a man and injuring another during a party early on New Year's Day, will be allowed to leave the Dominican Republic pending an investigation into the incident, which took the life of Michael Esteban Castillo Almonte, 25. The victim's 17-year-old half brother, Starlin Castillo Hernandez, was injured.

A prosecutor overseeing an involuntary manslaughter case against Orioles reliever Alfredo Simon said the investigation will continue even though the victim's family has dropped a civil lawsuit against the player. Victor Mueses told the Associated Press on Friday that he has evidence against Simon but is still waiting for a ballistics test and analysis of a video taken during the shooting before presenting his case. Prosecutors have until April 9 to submit a formal charge that would lead to trial.
