The O's also got good news on outfielder Joey Rickard (right thumb ligament injury), who was cleared to start baseball activities Friday. Rickard is currently on the 60-day disabled list and can't return until later this month, but the Orioles are hopeful he will be able to join the team at some point.

O's setup man Darren O'Day is slated to throw off a half-mound on Sunday. He has been sidelined since mid-August with a right shoulder rotator cuff strain.
