Worth noting

• First baseman Jim Thome heads to Sarasota on Wednesday, where he will begin his rehab. The Gulf Coast Orioles end their season Saturday, so Thome is likely to get his rehab assignment in Aberdeen.

• Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy allowed two runs on five hits in six innings in his second start for Double-A Bowie on Tuesday night. Bundy allowed a home run while striking out four. He threw 97 pitches.

• The latest on infielder Wilson Betemit was a little discouraging. Showalter said he's not optimistic that Betemit, out with a right wrist injury, will be ready to come off the disabled list on Aug. 28. Showalter did say he wants to see what happens in the next few days.
