BALTIMORE (AP) -- Infielder Rey Navarro and the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a one-year contract.
The 24-year-old spent last season with Double-A Pensacola and Triple-A Louisville in Cincinnati's organization. His deal calls for a $550,000 salary in majors and $150,000 in minors, with $75,000 guaranteed.
Navarro was selected by Arizona in the third round of the 2007 amateur draft and has a .265 batting average over eight minor league seasons.
Also on Wednesday, the Orioles obtained left-hander Scott Barnes from the Cleveland Indians for cash. Barnes pitched in 28 games for Triple-A Columbus this year and was 0-1 with one save and a 5.20 ERA for Cleveland in 22 relief appearances in 2012 and `13.
GENEVA (AP) -- Five officials, including three long-serving FIFA executive committee members, are being investigated in the corruption probe into the bidding contests for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
A person familiar with the cases confirmed the names Thursday to The Associated Press after the five were identified in European media reports. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the FIFA probe is confidential.
The current FIFA board members under investigation are FIFA vice president Angel Maria Villar of Spain, Michel D'Hooghe of Belgium and Worawi Makudi of Thailand.
The others are German great Franz Beckenbauer and Harold Mayne-Nicholls. Beckenbauer was a FIFA voter when Russia won the right to host the 2018 World Cup and Qatar secured the 2022 tournament. Mayne-Nicholls inspected the bids for FIFA.
