A couple of months after moving its pro scouting department under one umbrella that would focus primarily on amateur scouting, the Orioles have decided to put a little more emphasis on monitoring the minor leagues. The change is based more on logistics than any switch in philosophy, Orioles amateur scouting director Gary Rajsich said. In December, Dan Duquette, the Orioles' new executive vice president of baseball operations, announced that six of the club's eight pro scouts would be joining the amateur side as part of the organization's concentration on improving its annual draft.

Outfielder Nolan Reimold, whom the Toronto Blue Jays claimed off waivers from the Orioles in July, was designated for assignment Tuesday, the Blue Jays announced. Reimold, 30, had two homers and nine RBIs while batting .212 with a .283 on-base percentage in 60 plate appearances for the Blue Jays. A second-round pick by the Orioles in 2005, Reimold has been attempting to come back from neck surgeries the past two seasons. He was claimed by the Blue Jays off waivers July 6 and started off hot, with four hits in 12 at-bats before going on the 15-day disabled list with a calf strain.

If those longtime season ticket holders who are upset with their seat locations at the new ballpark are in the minority, as some Orioles officials have claimed, they are a vocal minority, according to yesterday's "It's Your Call" poll.Of 426 callers, more than three out of four (77 percent) said the Orioles have not treated the fans fairly in seat assignments at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Moreover, 85 percent (365 of 430 callers) said fans who have had season tickets in the past should receive priority treatment in seat assignments at the new park.

Cardinal William H. Keeler is shuffling several of his top aides in the offices of the Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore. The changes, announced in yesterday's issue of The Catholic Review, were routine and had nothing to do with the clergy sexual abuse scandal, church officials said. The Rev. J. Bruce Jarboe, who as director of clergy personnel had a key role in the church's handling of priests involved in sexual abuse, will take a yearlong sabbatical in Rome before accepting a new assignment.

As e-mail messages, text messages and social network postings become nearly ubiquitous in the lives of teenagers, the informality of electronic communications is seeping into their schoolwork, a new study says. Nearly two-thirds of 700 students surveyed said their e-communication style sometimes bled into school assignments, according to the study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, in partnership with the College Board's National Commission on Writing. About half said they sometimes omitted proper punctuation and capitalization in schoolwork.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain, was tentative while throwing during his workout Sunday and therefore will need a rehab assignment. “Still favoring it a lot, he was trying to protect [the ankle] in his throw,” Showalter said. “So we kind of shortened [the session] up a little bit because it wasn't getting any better, and we didn't want to have a setback. … Obviously, he's got some significance in there that we're going to have to clear up before we can pitch him.” That means Jimenez will not pitch at all for the Orioles during their 10-game road trip to the West Coast to start the second half of the season despite being eligible to come off the DL on July 23. He likely will pitch that day at a minor league affiliate on the East Coast.

WASHINGTON -- As expected, the Orioles designated relief pitcher Julio DePaula for assignment and reinstated right-hander Bud Norris to start Tuesday's game. But the game was postponed until Aug. 4 after a rain delay of approximately 2 1/2 hours. The Orioles selected DePaula's contract from Double-A Bowie on Monday, and he spent less than 24 hours with the club. But that didn't diminish the importance of the promotion to the 31-year-old right-hander, who hasn't made a major league appearance since 2007.

Nolan Reimold has reached the end of his 20-day injury rehabilitation assignment, but the Orioles have yet to decide whether they will designate the outfielder for assignment or add him to the club's 25-man active roster, executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday. Reimold, 30, remains on the 60-day major league disabled list after finishing his rehab stint Sunday. He had been recovering from complications surrounding corrective neck surgery last July. “We're still talking to Nolan and trying to figure out a way to keep him with the ballclub,” Duquette said.

The Orioles have reinstated third baseman Michael Almanzar, the club's Rule 5 pick, from the 60-day disabled list and designated him for assignment, the club announced Monday. The Orioles took Almanzar in the Rule 5 draft in December following a season in which he hit .268/.328/.432 with 16 homers and 81 RBIs with the Boston Red Sox's Double-A club in Portland. But Almanzar, 23, opened the season on the disabled list with tendinitis in his left knee and was transferred to the 60-day disabled list June 6. Almanzar was on a minor league rehabilitation assignment since June 20, hitting .156 with one homer and four RBIs with the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League club, High-A Frederick and Triple-A Norfolk.

BOWIE -- Nolan Reimold has a reason to be optimistic again. Reimold, who has spent most of the past three seasons clinging to small victories with his health and hoping to eventually put his injury-plagued past behind him, is currently in the final days of a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment with Double-A Bowie. And he said recently that he feels "a lot better. " The 30-year-old outfielder's 20-game rehab assignment window ends Sunday, so the Orioles almost certainly need to find a way to add him to the 25-man roster on Monday to keep him in the organization.

Welcome to the Big Ten, Maryland. It's going to be a long road to acceptance. The Chicago-based blog Sherman Ave assigned each Big Ten school a corresponding Game of Thrones character last week. Many of their assignments were spot on - Northwestern as the smart, if not physically unimposing Tyrion Lannister; Michigan as the talented, slightly arrogant superpower Jamie Lannister; and Ohio State as the loathsome top dog Joffrey. But scroll to the bottom and you'll see new members Maryland and Rutgers, who join the league on July 1. They weren't exactly deemed worthy of Game of Thrones characters.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who is currently on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle, could potentially begin a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment Saturday at one of the club's nearby affiliates. After the Orioles' 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night, manager Buck Showalter said Davis is scheduled to participate in pregame batting practice on the field before Friday's series opener against the Houston Astros at Camden Yards.
