Miguel Tejada, once the franchise player of the Orioles organization, could be near his third stint with the team. Tejada is slated to report to the Orioles spring training facility in Sarasota on Monday and work out with the organization's extended spring training team, a club source confirmed. If the club likes what they see in the 37-year-old former AL MVP, they could pursue a contract. He would add a solid defensive glove at third base and a right-handed bat, and it's likely any deal would be a minor-league deal.

Less than 14 hours after beating the Red Sox in 13 innings last night, the Orioles return to Fenway Park to face the Red Sox for an afternoon matinee. Jason Hammel, who has gone at least six innings in four of his five starts this season, will start for the Orioles. That should help an Orioles bullpen that threw eight shutout innings. Five different relievers threw on Friday, including three who threw multiple innings. “They were all pretty short last night,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of the bullpen.

The Orioles continue to add to their crowded 40-man roster. The club has signed reliever Luis Ayala, a 34-year-old right-hander who had a resurgent 2011 when he was 2-2 with a 2.09 ERA in 52 games with the New York Yankees, to a one-year, major league contract. The deal is worth a guaranteed $925,000. There is a team option for 2013 for $1 million with a $100,000 buyout. Ayala will earn $825,000 in 2012, and there are performance bonuses, mainly based on appearances, worth up to $350,000 for both 2012 and 2013.

A few Thursday morning thoughts from the Orioles beat: -- The outcome of Orioles pitcher Brad Bergesen's arbitration hearing will be made public today. Bergesen, who made $434,000 last season, filed for $1.2 million while the Orioles countered with $800,000 It's the first time the Orioles have gone to arbitration since 2006 with pitcher Rodrigo Lopez. Given that Bergesen went 2-7 with a 5.70 ERA in 34 appearances (12 starts) and has an unclear role going into spring training because of the surplus of rotation candidates, the fact that he filed for a 57 percent raise is interesting.

While many Orioles haven't had the chance to look through the outline of the proposed instant replay installation released by Major League Baseball on Thursday, some still feel the much-talked-about subject will ultimately be a positive for the game. One of the main arguments against expanded replay is that the system - in which managers would get one challenge in the first six innings and two in the final three - would further slow a game that already can become drawn out. But shortstop J.J. Hardy , who said he hadn't had a chance to read through the guidelines yet, said replay could end up speeding up the pace of a game.

Designated hitter Jim Thome is expected to arrive Sunday, so the Orioles will have to make room for him on the 25-man roster (after designating reliever Zach Phillips for assignment to clear 40-man roster space). But the team is expected to make at least one other 25-man roster move Sunday because they are without a long reliever since Dana Eveland started Saturday and threw 77 pitches and Tommy Hunter tossed 51 in relief. Miguel Gonzalez, was supposed to start Saturday at Triple-A Norfolk but was scratched, so it's expected that he will join the Orioles and serve as right-handed, relief insurance if starter Brian Matusz falters against the Cleveland Indians.
