Frederick infielder Nick Delmonico, who was rated by Baseball America before the season as the organization's No. 4 prospect, was struck in the helmet with a pitch Wednesday. He left the game and was held out of Thursday's contest with the Salem Red Sox for precautionary reasons. The Orioles do not believe the 21-year-old Delmonico has a concussion. Delmonico was hitting .254 with a .361 on-base percentage and 13 homers in 56 games for the Keys. Delmonico was beaned by one of the Red Sox top prospects, lefty Henry Owens, who along with two other Salem pitchers, threw a nine-inning no-hitter against the Keys on Wednesday.

The Orioles have agreed to a $525,500 signing bonus with their 2013 third-round draft pick Stephen Tarpley, a left-handed pitcher from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College. Tarpley is the highest pick that has agreed so far with the team, and he did so at the suggested slot bonus for the 98 th overall selection. The club has not exchanged figures yet with its top pick, North Carolina high school right hander Hunter Harvey (22 nd overall), presumably waiting for some of the lower drafted players to sign first.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- For the first time since his one-game suspension, Dallas Mavericks forward Roy Tarpley wore a wide smile. Saturday night, after Dallas' victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, Tarpley proclaimed, without prompting:"I'm a happy man. From now on, I'm going to keep things to myself. I'm not going to lose my cool anymore. . . . I want to be the last person on this team to cause problems. I caused enough of them in the past."After the Mavericks' Saturday morning shoot-around, Tarpley and coach Dick Motta had a brief talk, then announced a truce in what has been, for much of the season, an icy relationship.

DALLAS -- Now that he's finally gone, gone, gone, the worst possible reaction is remorse for Roy Tarpley. What Tarpley deserved, Tarpley received. Life proved to be extremely fair in this case.If the human element has to be involved, then reserve your sympathy strictly for fellow Dallas Mavericks Rolando Blackman, Derek Harper and Brad Davis. Those three teammates had to endure Tarpley the longest. And what a hardship it must have been.Otherwise, this is nothing more than a great business deal.
