Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- Esteban Yan didn't return to the Orioles because he was feeling nostalgic or wanted to relive some fond memories. The right-hander examined all of his other options and realized that he had none. "I'd like to get an opportunity again," he said, "and Baltimore was the only team that would give me a chance." Yan, 32, broke into the majors with the Orioles in 1996. He appeared in seven games and totaled 19 innings over two seasons before the Tampa Bay Devil Rays chose him in the expansion draft.

What the Orioles did yesterday: They beat up on Minnesota in their first exhibition game of spring training, 12-4, bashing four homers, including two by Jeffrey Hammonds. Brady Anderson also went 2-for-2, and Jimmy Key, Mike Johnson and Esteban Yan each pitched two scoreless innings.What they'll do today: The Orioles will host the Marlins and their new, expensive lineup, including third baseman Bobby Bonilla.You know it's spring training when: Players begin exploring, with rules relaxed. Pitcher Mike Mussina borrowed a photographer's camera and, along with Alan Mills, who was using his own camera, took a few pictures in the early innings.

Esteban Yan was a starter last year in Japan, so he could pitch in long and middle relief for the Orioles. We won't toss his name into the bucket of fifth-starter candidates. Yan acknowledged that the Orioles were his only option this spring, and he pitched in Japan last year because nobody was interested in signing him. Time is running out. Yan's fastball used to touch 99 mph. He can still reach 94, which isn't bad for a guy who's been pitching since Mike Cuellar was a rookie. Two players who are getting the most raves in camp won't be on the Opening Day roster: Matt Wieters and Chris Ray. Ramon Hernandez is also getting a lot of love, and the coaching staff raves about Dennis Sarfate's power arm. Chris Tillman has also been impressive, but he'll eventually get reassigned to the minor league camp.

ST. LOUIS -- After erasing a five-run deficit last night against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Orioles were on their way to their biggest comeback victory of the season. But they needed five outs to preserve a one-run lead, and their bullpen was running on fumes, so manager Mike Hargrove turned to closer Jorge Julio, hoping Julio could earn the second five-out save of his career. Julio got one out, but then he hit a batter and walked the next batter, loading the bases for Albert Pujols, the major league leader in hitting.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- At the top of Ray Miller's to-do list this season was a commitment to winning close games, the kind that shouldered the Orioles out of last postseason after accounting for almost 40 percent of last year's 64 losses.Maybe they're just procrastinating. Maybe it will get done. But yesterday, baseball's most experienced team again manufactured a way to lose a one-run game, this time 4-3 to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, who broke an eight-game losing streak at Tropicana Field thanks to two unearned runs.

PHOENIX -- What began as an expected assault on the Orioles' minor-league pitching depth escalated into a run on major-league contributors during yesterday's expansion draft.The Tampa Bay Devil Rays spent the 18th overall pick on right-handed power pitcher Esteban Yan -- a move the Orioles had anticipated -- before the Arizona Diamondbacks took outfielder Dave Dellucci with the 17th pick of the second round and the Devil Rays returned in the third round to take utility infielder Aaron Ledesma.
