PHOENIX -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he was planning to go over potential September call-ups on the flight home from Arizona on Wednesday night. With Triple-A Norfolk competing for a wild-card spot in the International League playoffs, Showalter said he will try not to raid the Tides' roster, but he will rely heavily on the input of Norfolk manager Ron Johnson, whom Showalter lauds for his ability to know who can help the major league club. “I was looking at it a little bit today,” Showalter said before Wednesday's game.

Right-handed reliever Heath Bell, who was released by the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, signed a minor league deal with the Orioles on Friday night and will report to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. A former, three-time All Star closer with the San Diego Padres, the 36-year-old Bell has struggled since signing a three-year, $27 million deal with the Miami Marlins before the 2012 season. He has been traded twice since then and compiled a 7.27 ERA in 13 games with the Rays this year before being released.

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.

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada, who is recovering from last May's Tommy John surgery, will make his first minor league rehab start for Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday afternoon at Lehigh Valley. It will be the first time Wada pitches in a minor league game since last April, when he lasted just 2 2/3 innings in a minor league rehab start for Norfolk. Wada, a former standout in the Japanese Pacific League who signed a two-year, $8.14 million contract before the 2012 season, has yet to pitch in a regular season game for the Orioles.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles reduced their camp roster to 46 (with nine non-roster invitees) on Friday by optioning injured right-hander Dylan Bundy to Double-A Bowie. It was a procedural move, because Bundy needed to be placed on the minor league disabled list by Friday. “It just changes where I am going to be,” Bundy said. “I'm going to be working with [minor league medical coordinator Dave Walker] down there [at the minor league complex] and that's who I've been working with the first six months of my rehab.

Cal Ripken Jr. says he would consider purchasing the Orioles if owner Peter G. Angelos put the club up for sale. "I think I could have value to a group, an ownership group," the former Orioles star said in an interview. "I like Mr. Angelos, and I don't know what's going to happen to his club, but if it were for sale, it would be interesting to explore." Ripken was careful to speak in hypotheticals because the team is not for sale. He said he considers Angelos "brilliant" and "a friend."

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel will make his second minor league rehabilitation start Tuesday for short-season Class-A Aberdeen. He is scheduled to throw between 60 and 65 pitches or go five innings, whichever comes first, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Hammel tossed 2 2/3 shutout innings for Double-A Bowie on Thursday night, his first time facing hitters since going on the disabled list with a right forearm strain on July 29. He threw 47 pitches (32 strikes), allowing three hits with no walks and two hit batsmen.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia, who was signed to a minor league deal on Friday, arrived at the Orioles' minor league facility at Twin Lakes Park on Sunday morning, passed his physical and threw a bullpen session in front of Orioles coaches. Wearing a No. 9 jersey without a name on the back, the 14-year veteran said he feels ready for the season - he threw five innings and about 80 pitches in last Saturday in his final start with the Padres before his release - and hopes he can get back to the big leagues with the Orioles.

Jair Jurrjens said late last week that he didn't expect he'd have his physical in Baltimore until at least mid-week. I am being told it likely will be Thursday and could bleed into Friday before an announcement is made. Nothing unusual there. Jurrjens agreed to terms on a one-year, major league deal last week and will compete for a rotation spot. He has minor league options remaining, so he can be sent down if he doesn't make the big league club. The Orioles have signed another outfielder with major league experience to a minor league deal.

The Orioles remain interested in signing free-agent outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, according to an industry source. Cespedes, the highly-touted Cuban defector, received free-agent status from MLB on Wednesday and can now begin negotiating with clubs. MLB said he still must obtain an unblocking license from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assests Control before he can actually sign with a major league club, so any negotiations are in their infancy. The Orioles liked what they saw of Cespedes, 26, in a private workout last month that was attended by manager Buck Showalter, director of international recruiting Fred Ferreira and international operations director David Stockstill.  And the club hasn't been scared off by Cespedes' poor numbers playing in the Dominican Winter League.
