The Orioles look to halt their six-game losing streak in today's 4:05 p.m. game against the Rays at Tropicana Field. Baltimore had lost six straight for the first time since Aug. 16-21, 2011. The Orioles are struggling in both facets of the game. The starting rotation has pitched to a 8.06 ERA over their last five starts (26 R, 23 ER, 25 2/3 IP), while the offense has scored just 14 runs over the sis-game losing streak. They are hitting .233 in that span and don't have an extra-base hit in the last two games.

A few years ago while working outside Washington, I was attempting to tune in an Orioles' afternoon game on my car radio. This was an FM frequency, the flagship station. Imagine my frustration at not being able to receive the broadcast, a mere 40 miles outside Baltimore. I was elated to hear the news yesterday that Orioles baseball broadcasts are coming back to WBAL-AM in Baltimore ( "Orioles headed back to WBAL after four seasons at 105.7 FM," Feb. 8). It's where the Os belong, having listened to hundreds of games from what will be the flagship station once again.

To make room for Luis Ayala on the Orioles' 40-man roster, the club designated outfielder Matt Angle for assignment. The speedy 26-year-old outfielder, a seventh-round pick in 2007 out of Ohio State, hit .177 for the Orioles in 31 games. His lone big league homer came against AL Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander to lead off the Sept. 24 game in Detroit. He hit .271 in 108 games for Triple-A Norfolk last season before joining the Orioles. Angle becomes another recent Orioles draftee to be jettisoned this offseason, joining outfielder Kyle Hudson and Brandon Snyder -- all picks under former amateur scouting director Joe Jordan.

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.

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.

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.
