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.

Coming off a humbling 13-2 loss to then-No. 18 Lehigh on Saturday, Navy still finds itself in a good spot with regard to qualifying for the Patriot League tournament. With a 2-2 conference record, the Midshipmen (3-4) currently sit in sixth place in the league. They are one game ahead of Boston University (1-2 in the conference and 1-6 overall) in the win column and are tied with Bucknell (2-2, 4-4), which owns the tiebreaker via a 9-6 win against Navy on Feb. 22. The top six teams advance to the Patriot League tournament.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles made a pair of significant roster cuts following Wednesday's 7-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, optioning South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon and catcher Johnny Monell to Triple-A Norfolk. The club also reassigned non-roster outfielder Xavier Paul to minor league camp. Yoon, 27, signed a three-year, $5.575 million deal with the Orioles last month, but he couldn't pitch in a Grapefruit League game until getting his work visa, a tedious process that sent him to Canada for four days and was just completed last week.

These teams have met only once in their respective histories, with Army winning, 9-3, in 1943. But with Loyola Maryland now in the Patriot League, this game promises to be the first of many between the programs. The Black Knights (4-2, 2-0) have won four of their last five games after opening the season with a 6-5 loss to Massachusetts. Junior attackman John Glesener is living up to the billing of being voted as the Patriot League's Preseason Offensive Player of the Year. He leads the team in goals (15)

TAMPA -- An Orioles team that had averaged nine runs per game over its past eight Grapefruit League games was shut out for the first time this spring on Thursday afternoon, falling to the New York Yankees, 6-0, at Steinbrenner Field. The Orioles (9-5) now have lost three straight following seven straight wins. They had just six hits in the game, including three after the third inning. Orioles right-hander Bud Norris battled through his shortest start of spring training on Thursday afternoon, allowing three runs (two earned)

Not only was Sunday's 14-7 victory over No. 6 Duke critical for boosting Loyola Maryland's resume for an at-large berth in the NCAA tournament if it doesn't capture the Patriot League automatic qualifier, it was another piece of evidence suggesting that the team is moving in the right direction. But as No. 3 Loyola (5-1) is getting praised roundly and moving into the top three in many polls, coach Charley Toomey said he is not concerned about the players' mental state after the emotionally charged outcome against the reigning national champion Blue Devils.

Poor shooting and defensive woes doomed the top-seeded Navy women in their Patriot League tournament semifinal at home Monday night against No. 5 seed Holy Cross, as the Midshipmen lost, 75-56. The Midshipmen (24-7) allowed five Crusaders (20-11) to score in double digits and shot 33.8 percent from the field and 17.9 percent from 3-point range. Forward Jade Geif's 20 points paced Navy on offense, but her team-high performance wasn't enough. Audrey Bauer had 14 points and Alix Membreno added 10 points, but no other Midshipman recorded more than five points.

Navy's lacrosse season is still fairly young. Despite a 3-2 overall record and a 2-1 mark in the Patriot League, the team still has eight regular-season games to play and either hone its resume for the NCAA tournament or begin the offseason in May. But make no mistake that the Midshipmen have warmed up to their first wining record in the conference since March 30, 2012 when that squad was 3-2 in the Patriot League despite a 9-4 loss to Lehigh....

BRADENTON, Fla. -- The competition for the reserve catcher role may not be the most compelling story in spring training for the Orioles, but it was very much on display in Monday's 7-6 victory over the host Pittsburgh Pirates at McKechnie Field. Steve Clevenger got the hot-hitting Orioles offense started in the second inning with a leadoff home run, and Johnny Monell entered later and delivered the game-winning single in the eighth to give the Orioles their seventh straight Grapefruit League victory.

Seven days after Navy's offense grabbed the headlines in an explosive drubbing of Patriot League rival Holy Cross, the defense took its turn in the spotlight. Sophomore goalkeeper John Connors finished with 13 saves and the unit allowed its fewest goals in almost two years in Friday night's 11-3 thumping of Lafayette at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. The three goals were the fewest surrendered by the Midshipmen (3-2 overall and 2-1 in the conference) since an 8-2 victory over Johns Hopkins on April 21, 2012, and the Leopards were limited to just 24 shots, including three in the final quarter.
