The Orioles have signed corner infielder/outfielder Joel Guzman, once one of baseball's top prospects, to a minor league deal. He will not receive an invite to major league camp. The former Los Angeles Dodgers' ballyhooed prospect was dealt to Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2006 as part of the Julio Lugo, trade-deadline deal. He was with the Washington Nationals organization last year, batting a combined .268 with 12 homers at Double-A and Triple-A. Guzman, 25, batted .232 in 24 big league games with the Dodgers and Devil Rays.

MIAMI - - What's the biggest difference between a character actor and a leading man? "About 15 to 20 million dollars," says veteran actor Luis Guzman. "And a private jet." Guzman knows what he's talking about. Since his feature film debut, in director Robert M. Young's 1977 adaptation of Miguel Pinero's harrowing play Short Eyes, the Puerto Rican-born, New York City-raised actor has appeared in more than 100 movies and TV shows - Miami Vice to Frasier, Boogie Nights to Anger Management, The Limey to Runaway Jury.

Lineup choices National League rules don't allow for a designated hitter, and manager Sam Perlozzo went against conventional thinking by starting right-handed hitters Kevin Millar and Jay Payton against Washington Nationals right-hander Jason Simontacchi. Left-handed hitters Aubrey Huff and Jay Gibbons were relegated to the bench. The moves were rewarded when Payton lifted a sacrifice fly in the fourth to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead, and Millar added a run-scoring single in the fifth for a 3-0 advantage.

NEW YORK --Hours before he was to be married, a man leaving his bachelor party at a strip club in Queens that was under police surveillance was fatally shot and two of his friends were wounded, one critically, when police fired into their car early yesterday, witnesses and the police said. Many details of the shootings were not immediately clarified, but relatives of the slain man, Sean Bell, 23, and community leaders, including the Rev. Al Sharpton, demanded an investigation into what some called an overreaction by officers that left a man dead on his wedding day. Witnesses told of chaos, screams and gunfire near the Kalua Cabaret about 4 a.m. as the victims walked out, got into their car, a silver Nissan Altima, drove about a block and struck an unmarked police minivan carrying plainclothes officers.
