Former Oriole outfielder Felix Pie is officially leaving the organization for another American League club. Pie has agreed to terms on a minor league deal and spring invite with the Cleveland Indians, according to an industry source. The 26-year-old Pie could make $1 million in salary and performance bonuses in the majors. He also would be able to opt out of the contract if he doesn't make the Indians' Opening Day roster. Pie spent three seasons with the Orioles, batting .259 with 14 homers in 268 games.

The Sun has done an excellent job commemorating the 60th anniversary of the St. Louis Browns becoming the Baltimore Orioles ("The Orioles: Sixty Years in Baltimore," March 30). It was a class act for the Orioles to invite former shortstop Billy Hunter to throw the ceremonial pitch on the exact date of the first home game. Billy Hunter's outstanding double-play partner at second base was the late Bob Young, the only native Marylander to arrive in Baltimore with the former Browns.

NEW YORK-- The Orioles made a minor trade on Monday afternoon, acquiring right-handed reliever Preston Guilmet from the Cleveland Indians for minor league outfielder Torsten Boss. In the corresponding 40-man move to create space for Guilmet, the team transferred outfielder Nolan Reimold to the 60-day disabled list. Reimold opened the season on the 15-day DL because he struggled moving his neck looking up for balls while playing the outfield this spring training. The plan was for Reimold - who is coming off corrective neck surgery - to play in extended spring training games in Sarasota to get better accustomed to playing the outfield.

This wasn't the way Ubaldo Jimenez or the Orioles wanted things to start this year. After three starts with the Orioles, Jimenez is 0-3 with a 7.31 ERA. He has allowed 23 hits and 10 walks in 16 innings -- or two base runners per inning. On Sunday, he gave up five runs, 10 hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings in the Orioles' 11-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. “Tough one, really bad one. I couldn't be there for the team once again,” Jimenez said. “I've been missing right down the middle of the plate.

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - It has been more than a decade since Brady Anderson had to wonder about his place in the lineup. He was such a regular fixture in the Orioles' outfield that it is he - not consecutive-games king Cal Ripken - who holds the club record for games played at Oriole Park. So this must be a strange time. The Cleveland Indians are preparing for another run at the American League Central title and Anderson finds himself in an unfamiliar uniform and an uncomfortable situation, forced to audition for a significant role in their 2002 playoff bid. It is not a sure thing.

The first time Bobby Ojeda saw Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital, it wasn't at all what he expected. The mix of old and new buildings on the wooded hillside looked imposing to him, like something out of a Hollywood movie. It could have been a fancy private school, or a small college.But they don't send you to private school when you're a major league baseball pitcher struggling to get over seeing two teammates killed in a boating accident. Mr. Ojeda came to Sheppard Pratt in July 1993 because he had survived, but still wasn't living.

The Orioles (1-2) are scheduled to play the Detroit Tigers (2-0) in their fourth game of the season today at Comerica Park. The game is set for a 1:08 p.m. Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is expected to start for the Orioles, while Detroit will send right-hander Anibal Sanchez to the mound. How does this year's squad stack up through three games against successful Orioles teams of the past? With high expectations this season, we'll try to track how the club is performing through each game compared to previous years in which they made the playoffs.

The Orioles finally made a necessary splash Monday, agreeing to terms with free-agent starter Ubaldo Jimenez on a four-year, $48 million that gives the club a veteran starter to bolster a substandard rotation. There are some things to like about the deal, starting with the fact that the Orioles actually spent some money to improve a roster that has a lot of talent in the everyday lineup, including 2013 All-Stars Chris Davis, Manny Machado, Adam Jones and J.J. Hardy. Jimenez, when he is right, has tantalizing talent, which he showed in the second half of last season when he helped pitch the Cleveland Indians into the playoffs.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles announced Tuesday that they've signed right-handed pitcher Luis Vizcaino and infielder Brock Bond to minor league contracts. The deals don't include invitations to major league spring training, so both players will report to the Orioles' minor league camp at Twin Lakes Park. Vizcaino, 39, hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2009 with the Cleveland Indians. Last season, he was 1-3 with a 1.40 ERA for Yucatan of the Mexican League. Over an 11-year career with the Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago White Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Yankees, Colorado Rockies, Chicago Cubs and Indians, he is 35-30 with a 4.33 ERA. He signed a minor league deal with the Yankees back in 2011, but his contract was voided when he suffered an Achilles injury while pitching in winter ball.

The Orioles added more organizational depth Monday, claiming infielder Cord Phelps off waivers from the Cleveland Indians. Phelps -- primarily a second baseman who has also played left field, third base and shortstop in the minors - played 53 games with Cleveland over the past three seasons and compiled a .159/.221/.248 slash line. He was hitless in nine at-bats for the Indians last season, but he dealt with neck and right wrist injuries throughout the year. He did not appear in a game after July 2 and was placed on the 60-day disabled list in August.

The 2014 NCAA men's lacrosse Championship Weekend at M&T Bank Stadium will have some competition right next door. The newly released Orioles 2014 schedule has home dates against the Cleveland Indians over Memorial Day weekend, as first noted by the Baltimore Business Journal. The Orioles and Indians meet at Camden Yards on May 22-25; the Division I lacrosse semifinals are set for May 24, the Division II and III finals for the 25th and the Division I championship on May 26. The stadiums share a parking lot, and schedule conflicts in the Baltimore area are nothing new. The Grand Prix of Baltimore has been canceled for 2014 and 2015 because of a Ohio State-Navy football game at M&T Bank Stadium and an American Legion convention over the next two Labor Day weekends, respectively, and the Ravens were forced to open this season in Denver because of a home Orioles game.

If you're trying to handicap the race for the second American League wild-card slot, don't spend too much time agonizing over it. Just look at the soft schedule the Cleveland Indians have the rest of the way. While the Orioles, Yankees, Royals and Rays have winning teams all over their remaining schedules, the Indians have only one series remaining against a winning team - next week's three-game set at Kansas City. The other 15 games on the Indians' schedule are against three teams (the White Sox, Astros and Twins)
