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.

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.

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.

The Orioles' plan all along was to let Kevin Gausman loose in the second half of this season. It took some rigid discipline - limiting his innings and pitch counts earlier this year - in order to preserve him for the stretch run. It also included some unpopular roster moves as the right-hander shuttled back and forth to the minor leagues. When the Orioles needed an extra relief pitcher, Gausman usually was the player sent to manager Buck Showalter's office to be told he was being optioned.

Catcher Chance Sisco and right-hander Jon Keller, both of Low-A Delmarva, earned Orioles Player and Pitcher of the Month honors for June, respectively, the Shorebirds announced Tuesday. Sisco, the Orioles' second-round pick last year, hit .404 with eight doubles, a home run, and 19 RBIs in 24 June games, good for a 1.004 OPS. Sisco overcame a slow start -- he hit .245 in April -- to raise his average to a league-leading .353, thanks to his hot June and .411/.441/.589 line in 13 games this month.

When first base coach Wayne Kirby asked Jonathan Schoop to clear his locker Saturday, he hoped it would help the second baseman snap out of his struggles at the plate. So Schoop carried his belongings out of Camden Yards and then turned around and brought everything back in, pretending like he had just gotten called up from the minor leagues. “I was trying to refresh my mind,” Schoop said. “I was coming in like my season was just starting out. Tried to refresh, you never know.

Rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman, who was eligible to return to the Orioles from the minor leagues Tuesday, is a candidate to start Sunday against the Boston Red Sox, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Gausman, who is 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA in five starts for the Orioles this season, threw a bullpen session Monday at short-season Single-A Aberdeen, and he will have an abbreviated outing for the IronBirds on Wednesday. He last started Friday in the first game of the doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards.

The Orioles have cut ties - at least temporarily - with one of their longest tenured players, designating outfielder Nolan Reimold for assignment Tuesday. The club now has 10 days to trade, release or ask waivers on Reimold, who has been attempting to return from two neck surgeries, one in each of the past two years. Reimold had been playing at Double-A Bowie, but his 20-day minor league rehab assignment ended Sunday. The Orioles had to decide by Tuesday whether to add Reimold to the 25-man roster, but with the right-handed left fielder-designated hitter roles filled by Nelson Cruz, Steve Pearce and Delmon Young, there was no obvious spot.

Nolan Reimold has reached the end of his 20-day injury rehabilitation assignment, but the Orioles have yet to decide whether they will designate the outfielder for assignment or add him to the club's 25-man active roster, executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday. Reimold, 30, remains on the 60-day major league disabled list after finishing his rehab stint Sunday. He had been recovering from complications surrounding corrective neck surgery last July. “We're still talking to Nolan and trying to figure out a way to keep him with the ballclub,” Duquette said.
