The Orioles have agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Evan Meek on a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training, according to an industry source. Meek, 30, spent five years with the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2008 to 2012, going 7-7 with a 3.34 ERA in 156 relief appearances. His best season came in 2010, when he was 5-4 with a 2.14 ERA, 15 holds and four saves in 80 relief innings.

SARASOTA, Fla. - When the Orioles first contacted Dave Wallace in October about their pitching coach vacancy, the 66-year-old baseball veteran took pause. Wallace already had a nice job as the minor league pitching coordinator for the Atlanta Braves. He was fulfilling his passion of developing young pitchers. He didn't like to leave a job unfinished, either, and he felt there was still work to do in Atlanta. There was nothing left to prove. As a major league pitching coach for four organizations, he had guided staffs to two pennants and won the World Series with the 2004 Boston Red Sox. After more than four decades in professional baseball, he'd been at every rung of the organizational ladder, from player to minor league coach to front-office official.

Extreme cold temperatures in the Baltimore region overnight and into Friday morning have disrupted Metro service throughout the city and its surrounding suburbs, forcing cars out of service and decreasing the capacity of trains. Trains are operating on normal schedules, but are arriving at stations with only four cars, instead of the normal six, officials said. The entire Metro system is being impacted. The problems could last several days as temperatures remain low through the weekend, said Paul Shepard, a Maryland Transit Administration spokesman, on Friday morning.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles pitching prospect Tim Berry's ascension from 50th-round pick to the organization's 40-man roster is a remarkable one. But when you hear the 22-year-old talk about his progress - and how realistic and mature he seems to be about his bright future - it doesn't seem so surprising. The left-hander is one of the Orioles organization's high risers. Following a year at high Class-A Frederick in which he went 11-7 with a 3.85 ERA on the season and won nine of his last 13 decisions, Berry was dominant in the Arizona Fall League, pitching to a 1.84 ERA in 14 2/3 innings.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- This is the time in the offseason when savvy clubs are able to make some under-the-radar minor league signings that can help them down the road. And while the Orioles' signings of Delmon Young and Alexi Casilla over the past few days aren't groundbreaking -- I know a lot of fans just see it as more frustrating examples of bargain-bin shopping -- and by no means are they going to push the team over the top, they definitely fill some needs. Because of his strong splits against left-handed pitching, Young -- signed to a minor league deal Monday evening -- can fill the right-handed designated hitter spot left open when the Orioles traded Danny Valencia to the Kansas City Royals.

Heading into this season, coach G.G. Smith - and perhaps every opposing coach on the schedule for the Loyola Maryland men's basketball team - knew that the backcourt of senior Dylon Cormier (Cardinal Gibbons) and junior R.J. Williams (St. Frances) would anchor the squad. And the emergence of sophomore Eric Laster has furthered strengthened that unit, which makes the team's lack of production from the frontcourt somewhat puzzling. The trio of senior Jordan Latham (City) and sophomore Jarred Jones (John Carroll)

At the start of each offseason, as we look ahead to what the Ravens will do to get better, we talk largely about the players they could draft (and also whom they might consider if they take a dip in the free-agent waters). We sometimes forget that last year's rookie class will have a bigger impact than this upcoming one. Head coach John Harbaugh talked about that during Wednesday's annual "State of the Ravens" news conference, that players often make the biggest leap in their development from the first year to the second.
