    Delmon Young

    SARASOTA — One of the first things I saw upon entering the Orioles’ clubhouse this morning was Delmon Young wearing compression shorts and no shirt on. And you guys say you wish you had my job. I will say, though, Young looked better in that ensemble than I figured he might. It made me wonder…

    Former first-round pick Matt LaPorta, whose career was derailed by multiple injuries, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Orioles.
