The Orioles are still interested in outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and want another look at the highly touted Cuban defector. The Orioles weren't able to scout Cespedes at last week's Carribean Series because his Dominican Winter League team didn't make the series field, but the organization plans to scout him again soon. Orioles executive director of international scouting Fred Ferreira said the club is planning a trip to the Dominican Republic to watch Cespedes within the "next week to 10 days.

Breaking down each aspect of the Ravens' Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. PASSING GAME RAVENS: In three starts at home, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has completed 63.9 percent of his pass attempts and thrown six touchdown passes and one interception. In two starts on the road, he's completed 59.4 of his passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. The Ravens' quest to become a better road team starts with Flacco getting off to quicker starts and the offensive line doing a better job of protecting him. The Ravens are optimistic that today could be the day for wide receiver Torrey Smith's breakout.

While the Orioles aren't actively pursuing additional starting pitching, it didn't stop them from scouting veteran right-hander Aaron Harang in the Los Angeles Dodgers' Phoenix camp on Monday. The Dodgers' free-spending offseason leaves them with pitchers to move, and Harang is among those the team could deal, especially if their are willing to pick up a portion of his remaining contract. A lone scout from the Orioles watched the 34-year-old Harang pitch three innings in a minor league game, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times . With all the starters the Dodgers have, Harang was pitching in the minor league game to get his innings in. The Orioles already have 13 starting rotation candidates in camp, so there's no lack of starting pitching.

Breaking down the American League Division Series matchup between the Orioles and Tigers, which begins Thursday at Camden Yards: How they got here Tigers: They had to scratch and claw to win their fourth straight American League Central title. The Tigers were 90-72 this season and didn't secure the division until they won Sunday. They may have the most formidable rotation in baseball, with the last three AL Cy Young Award winners. Their offense isn't shabby either, with the specter of two-time reigning AL Most Valuable Player Miguel Cabrera always looming.

Surrounded by a large crowd of NFL scouts and coaches Monday afternoon at rain-soaked Johnny Unitas Stadium, Towson star running back Terrance West cut sharply to his left and adeptly corralled an intermediate pass without breaking stride. West displayed sound hands, quick feet and impressive balance in front of 22 NFL teams during his Pro Day workout. He didn't drop a pass and maintained his footing despite a steady downpour. "If I had to run on fire, I'd do it, man," said West, a Northwestern graduate who measured in at 5 feet 9, 230 pounds.

Orioles prospect Mike Wright, a towering right-hander pitching his first full season in Triple-A Norfolk, is frequently overlooked in conversations about the team's top pitching prospects. While fans clamor for the return of Dylan Bundy or the permanent arrival of Kevin Gausman in Baltimore, Wright has steadily climbed through the Orioles system all the way to Triple-A, where every arm is seen as a potential major league contributor. But Wright, who takes the hill Tuesday night looking to put a bow on a rough May in which he has allowed 20 earned runs in 23 innings, was recently touted to me by a scout as a future major league starter.

I talked to a major league scout Friday whose territory is strictly the American League East and whose opinion I really respect. He's always been pretty spot on with his assessments, so I was curious as to what he thought about what has happened with this division since the postseason ended. I'm going to warn you, Orioles fans, he's not sold on your club. In fact, if rosters were set today, the scout said he'd predict that the Orioles finish fourth in the AL East in 2013, just above the Tampa Bay Rays.

Jeff Zrebiec breaks down each area of the Ravens' Week 4 home game against the Carolina Panthers:  PASSING GAME RAVENS: All eyes will be on wide receiver Steve Smith, who faces the organization he played with for 13 seasons. While Joe Flacco will undoubtedly look to get Smith the ball early, he needs receivers Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown to be more involved in the passing game. That trio has combined for just 10 catches this season. Flacco has not been sacked in two straight games, but with left tackle Eugene Monroe sidelined, his blindside will now be protected by undrafted rookie James Hurst.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: In the victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Flacco played safe and efficient football. Expect more of the same as the Ravens want him to avoid the slow starts that plagued him on the road last year. Steve Smith and the two tight ends have been extremely productive, but the Ravens need to get Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown more involved. Smith will probably draw Joe Haden, the Browns' top corner. Steve Smith has been targeted 25 times in two games.

The chairman of the committee seeking to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to the Washington area said Thursday that he is intrigued by the possibility that an Olympic stadium could be built on the RFK Stadium site, perhaps becoming the future home of the NFL's Redskins. "When the ownership of the Washington NFL team talked about looking, that's probably one of the places they'd like to look, so that's something we'd like to understand better," said Russ Ramsey, who has been visiting other potential Olympic venues in Maryland and around the region.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: As much as he's struggled against the Cincinnati Bengals, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has flourished in recent years against the Steelers, throwing eight touchdown passes and just one interception in his past seven games against them. Flacco threw the ball 62 times Sunday. That's certainly not the recipe offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak wants to rely on. Steve Smith and Dennis Pitta both had big games against the Bengals, but Ravens receivers dropped eight passes.

PASSING RAVENS: This will be Joe Flacco's 13th game against the Bengals, but the quarterback will present Cincinnati with a different look. In Gary Kubiak's offense, Flacco will use more play-action and try to get the ball out quicker. It should help him limit mistakes, which he often has made against the Bengals, who have 15 interceptions against him. Flacco has more weapons than ever before, and the Bengals will provide a good test of how much the Ravens passing game has progressed.
