NEW YORK -- The New Jersey State Parole Board denied the parole yesterday of Tony Ayala Jr., the former junior middleweight contender who has served 15 years of a 30-year sentence on a 1981 rape conviction. Unless the decision is overturned on appeal, Ayala, 35, will spend at least another 12 months behind bars and will be released outright around June 1999.The decision followed a meeting between Ayala and two members of the parole board -- Andrew Consovoy, the vice chairman of the board, and Roland Gomez Rivera -- at the Bayside State Prison in Leesburg, N.J. They reached a decision within 15 minutes of the conclusion of the interview.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Tuesday was a busy day at the Ed Smith Stadium complex. Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold saw his first simulated game action in several weeks, making five plate appearances in a simulated game on the Camden Yards field at the complex.  Reimold tracked pitches in his first at-bat, then hit a looper to right field in his second plate appearance. Reimold hit a scorcher up the middle in his third at-bat, then drew a walk and hit a ball that would have been a groundout to shortstop.

The Washington Nationals yesterday agreed to a two-year contract with reliever Luis Ayala and a one-year deal with free-agent outfielder Michael Tucker. Ayala, who had been eligible for arbitration, is 24-22 with a 2.75 ERA in three seasons with the team. Tucker is a career .257 hitter over 11 seasons with Kansas City, Atlanta, Cincinnati, the Chicago Cubs, San Francisco and Philadelphia. Free agents -- Second baseman Rich Aurilia and the Reds agreed to a $1.3 million, one-year contract Sunday night, about three hours before the team would have lost the right to re-sign him until May. Jeff Weaver, who went 14-11 with a 4.22 ERA for the Dodgers last year, did not reach an agreement with Los Angeles before the midnight EST deadline.

SARASOTA, Fla. -   Orioles  third baseman Manny Machado returned to Sarasota on a red-eye flight from Los Angeles late Thursday night, but it's still unclear when Machado can return to playing in games. Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the surgeon who performed Machado's left-knee surgery in October, cleared Machado for all physical activity after examining his left knee on Thursday. His return is in the Orioles trainers' hands now, but first Machado must resume his baserunning progression that was halted by releasing of scar tissue as a result of the surgery.

The last of three men charged in the fatal beating of their roommate during a fight in a wooded area in Columbia last year pleaded guilty yesterday to second-degree murder. The man, William D. Maldonado, said the victim, Antonio Ayala, was the first to land a blow in a scuffle that involved all four roommates, prosecutors said. He admitted hitting Ayala with a piece of wood and with rocks before he and the other two men, cousins Marcos and Reyes Escalante, dragged Ayala to a rocky stream behind Flowerstock Row, prosecutors said.

The second of three men convicted of second-degree murder in the beating and stoning death of a 33-year-old Honduran immigrant in Columbia last spring was sentenced yesterday to 25 years in prison. Marcos Escalante, 26, not only hit Antonio Ayala in the head with a 4-by-4 piece of wood, he also helped drag him to a rocky stream bed where he threw rocks at him and left him to die, Howard Circuit Judge Lenore R. Gelfman said before imposing sentence. A landscaper discovered Ayala's body on May 20, 2002, a few days after the beating in woods behind Flowerstock Row. "The defendant was not simply a passive participant but, rather, took an active and, in fact, the most brutal role in this unfortunate event," Gelfman said.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - A woman who said she found a finger in her beef chili at a Wendy's restaurant has been charged with attempted larceny in what the police are calling a hoax against the fast-food chain. But the San Jose Police Department stopped short of accusing the woman, Anna Ayala, 39, of planting the finger she said she found in her food last month, an incident that set off a consumer backlash against Wendy's in Northern California. The police, in a news conference here yesterday, also declined to say where the finger came from.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles are working on a minor league deal with right-hander Luis Ayala, according to industry sources. Ayala, who was a valuable reliever on the Orioles' 2012 playoff team, was released by the Washington Nationals on Wednesday following a rough spring training in which he allowed nine runs and 10 hits in six innings. The move would give the Orioles added bullpen depth with a familiar reliever. The 36-year-old reliever would report to minor league camp in Twin Lakes Park.

Baseball Ex-Orioles pitcher Ayala returns to Nationals The Washington Nationals reunited with veteran right-handed reliever Luis Ayala , a former Montreal Expo and original 2005 National, by signing him Friday to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league camp, according to a person familiar with the situation. The incentives of Ayala's deal are still being worked out, but he will have a base salary of at least $1 million, the person said. Ayala, 36, signed with the Orioles last spring and was traded to the Atlanta Braves in April after allowing two runs in only two appearances.

BOSTON -- The Orioles traded veteran reliever Luis Ayala to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, receiving minor league left-handed reliever Chris Jones in return. But the move was less about unloading Ayala than it was allowing the Orioles the opportunity to keep Rule 5 pick T.J. McFarland while moving to a seven-man bullpen. It lets the team go to back a four-man bench after playing short-handed since Saturday. The Orioles purchased the contract of outfielder Chris Dickerson from Triple-A Norfolk, and he replaced Ayala on the 40-man and 25-man rosters.

The new season is just six games old and the Orioles are already struggling to hold the 25-man roster together. Left fielder Nolan Reimold had to be removed from Sunday's game with a tight hamstring and reliever Luis Ayala was taken to a local hospital after becoming ill during the middle innings, which left manager Buck Showalter and executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette considering possible roster replacements in...

In an attempt to lessen their glut of big league pitchers, the Orioles have contacted teams to let them know veteran right-handed reliever Luis Ayala is available in a trade, according to an industry source. It's unclear exactly what the Orioles are looking for in return, but the club is interested in adding players with minor league options that don't necessarily have to be placed on the 40-man roster. Its biggest need is catching depth behind starter Matt Wieters and oft-injured reserve Taylor Teagarden.

SARASOTA, Fla. - In an otherwise meaningless exhibition against an obviously undermanned Spain World Baseball Classic team, Orioles manager Buck Showalter accomplished something important Wednesday afternoon. He found work for relievers Jim Johnson , Darren O'Day and Luis Ayala - all of whom were key parts of the club's outstanding bullpen in 2012 and all of whom had not pitched in a game this spring. Showalter wants to keep their innings and workload down, but he also has to get them ready for April.

To anyone who has followed the Orioles the past few days, I know what you're asking. Why in the world is it taking so long for Orioles reliever Luis Ayala to decide whether he's going to pitch for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic? It's a reasonable question. We've been waiting for that news going on three days now. Hopefully, we find out this morning. But the thing is, we're not really waiting on Ayala's decision. From talking to him, it sounds like he wants to represent his home country.
