Tidbits

• Troy Patton (right ankle sprain) will throw a side session Wednesday in Sarasota, Fla. Assuming all goes well, the lefty will throw live batting practice on Friday.

• Showalter had Triple-A manager Ron Johnson and pitching coach Mike Griffin join him in Tuesday's pregame media session with reporters, as he wanted to publicly thank both of them for all their hard work this year. With the Orioles' revolving door of roster moves, Norfolk used 75 different players in 2012 -- Johnson's first in the organization.

• Jim Thome (herniated disk in his neck) is expected to take batting practice in the cages of the team's complex in Sarasota on Wednesday.
