OSU's Riley promotes Locey, Bray on staff

CORVALLIS — Oregon State coach Mike Riley has promoted assistant head coach Jay Locey to chief of staff and graduate assistant Trent Bray to linebackers coach.

Locey, in his seventh season as coach, will add fundraising, alumni engagement, high school and community relations, player leadership development and team building activities to a list of duties in his new role.

A graduate assistant coach to be named later will assume Locey's responsibilities over the team's tight ends.

Bray, who started at linebacker for the Beavers from 2002-05, returned to Oregon State as a graduate assistant last year after two seasons as linebackers coach at Arizona State.

Posey, Heyward among 133 who file for arbitration

NEW YORK — San Francisco catcher Buster Posey, Atlanta outfielder Jason Heyward and Boston outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury are among 133 players who have filed for salary arbitration.

Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza and Giants outfielder Hunter Pence also are among those who filed Tuesday.

Six extra players filed because of a change to baseball's labor contract: Washington reliever Drew Storen, San Diego shortstop Everth Cabrera, Toronto catcher Josh Thole, Tampa Bay outfielder Sam Fuld, Colorado outfielder Tyler Colvin and Arizona third baseman Chris Johnson.

Under the latest labor deal, the top 22 percent of players by service time with at least two years but less than three are eligible for arbitration. From 1991 through last year, the top 17 percent in the 2-to-3-year group could file.

Players and teams are scheduled to swap proposed salaries Friday, with hearings before three-arbitrator panels next month in Phoenix. Most cases settle before they go to hearings.
