Orioles vs Yankees lineups and pregame tidbits

*Tsuyoshi Wada (left elbow discomfort) threw six innings in extended spring this afternoon, going 88 pitches in an outing that reportedly went well. Manager Buck Showalter said Wada get better as he went along and was particularly sharp in the sixth. He will pitch again on Saturday in Port Charlotte. The plan is for Wada to go on rehab assignment and pitch for an affiliate after that. Showalter reiterated on Monday that Wada will get at least two more starts before being activated from the disabled list, so there’s no decision around the corner on that.

*Zach Britton will pick up a baseball for the first time on Thursday since receiving PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment last month.  Britton has been doing shoulder rehab work down in extended spring and the plan is for him to play light catch.
