Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has been placed on the seven-day minor league disabled list with a right lat strain, the club announced Thursday. Bundy injured the muscle after his last start at High-A Frederick, and ge did it while running. The injury isn't related to his arm, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. Bundy was evaluated by Orioles team doctors Thursday in Baltimore before the decision was made to place him on the DL. Bundy, 21, returned to the mound in June after he underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow ligament surgery last year.

When I heard the news, I thought it was a joke. My alma mater, Towson University, has made an entirely irrational decision to drop both men's baseball and soccer programs ("Angry coach says officials kept quiet about folding team," Oct. 4). Apparently, there is a collegiate rule that strives for gender equality participation in sports, and there was some imbalance in the numbers of female athletes versus male athletes. Once again, political correctness rears its ugly head, and who loses?

The Tampa Bay Rays, who will open their season Tuesday night against the Orioles, trimmed their roster to the 25-man limit by placing relief pitcher J.P. Howell on the 15-day disabled list (left shoulder strain) and reassigning pitcher Joaquin Benoit and infielder Hank Blalock to the minor leagues. Blalock, a former Texas Ranger, signed a minor league deal last month; the deal included a clause allowing him to try to sign with other teams if he was not going to be part of the roster coming out of spring training.

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.

With right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez returning from the disabled list to start Saturday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Orioles must make a difficult roster decision in order to clear room for him. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Friday's game that either a reliever or starter could be sent to the minor leagues in order to clear 25-man space for Jimenez's return, but that decision won't be made until he sees how the team's pitching...

WASHINGTON - When the Orioles were discussing trades last month with various teams, they fielded requests targeting their top four pitching prospects: right-handers Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey and left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, who they ultimately dealt Thursday to the Boston Red Sox for reliever Andrew Miller. But there was another wave of inquiries this summer, too. According to multiple sources, teams asked about the availability of several Orioles position prospects, including Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Dariel Alvarez and first baseman Christian Walker, Double-A Bowie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and Low-A Delmarva catcher Chance Sisco.

Former Orioles closer Jim Johnson cleared release waivers Sunday afternoon, so he now is eligible to sign with any major league organization. The Orioles have had trouble this week hiding their desire to bring Johnson back, but they needed to wait until he was free of any contractual obligations with the Oakland Athletics. Manager Buck Showalter confirmed Sunday that Orioles minor league pitching rehab coordinator Scott McGregor traveled back to Sarasota, Fla., on Sunday, and will watch Johnson throw a side session Monday at the club's spring training complex.

The Oakland Athletics released former Orioles closer Jim Johnson on Friday, which means that any club will be able to sign him at just the prorated portion of the minimum major league salary soon. Chances are, that club will be the Orioles, who dealt Johnson to the A's to avoid a big arbitration payday. But there is some question as to exactly when he will be available to sign, so manager Buck Showalter was hesitant to talk about him during Friday's pregame news briefing. “He still has a day or two, as I understand it, and some things he has to clear before he becomes public fodder to talk about,” Showalter said, “so I don't think that's there yet, from what I've been told.” Johnson was designated for assignment July 24, after a rocky tenure with the A's in which he struggled from the start and quickly lost his closer role.

  The Orioles have signed left-handed pitcher Joe Saunders to a minor league deal and the Virginia native will report to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.   Although he has never relieved in his 229-game, big league career, the Orioles are, at least initially, planning to put him the bullpen at Norfolk to see if he can adapt into that role.     Saunders, 33, spent two months with the Orioles in 2012, starting and winning the club's first playoff game in 15 years. Saunders allowed just one run in 5 2/3 innings against the defending American League champion Texas Rangers in Arlington as the Orioles won the first one-game Wild Card playoff in AL history.

OAKLAND, Calif. - After throwing off a mound for the first time since going on the disabled list with a sprained right ankle, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez could pitch a minor league rehabilitation game by the middle of next week, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday. Jimenez tested his ankle with a bullpen session during the Orioles' post-All-Star-break workout in Oakland on Thursday and was pleased with the progress of his recovery. He will throw another bullpen session Sunday.
