Orioles @ Angels lineup- Davis back

Greetings from the series finale in Anaheim with first baseman Chris Davis back in the lineup after doing some pregame running out on the field and testing his right knee. Davis said all went well and he’s wearing a brace on his knee right now. An MRI taken yesterday morning revealed he’s dealing with some tendinosis in that area and you can read more on that here.

*Tsuyoshi Wada wil throw what is expected to be his final extended spring game on Saturday and, assuming all goes well, he will go out on Minor League rehab assignment after that.

“I was talking to different guys about him down there,” Showalter said. “I had Brian Roberts go down there and scout it out for me. He had some interesting things to say. I’ll have Wilson [Betemit] have a look at him next time out, and then [Taylor] Teagarden.

Speaking of Roberts, he continues to progress in baseball activities, with the next step for him to take batting practice, although no date has been set for that.

*Zach Britton suffered the loss for Triple-A Norfolk yesterday after yielding five runs (three earned) on 10 hits in six-plus innings of work.  Britton walked one and struck out three while getting 10 groundball outs.
