Worth noting

• Right-hander Chris Tillman will start for the Orioles on Tuesday against the Pirates in Bradenton, Fla.

• Jurrjens said he was prepared to pitch two innings Sunday, even after Saturday starter Zach Britton tossed just one frame. Showalter said after Sunday's game that, from here on out, each game's starting pitcher will be throwing at least two innings.

• Showalter said right-handers Jim Johnson and Darren O'Day, both of whom are being brought along slowly this spring, threw side sessions in the bullpen back at the Orioles' Spring Training complex.

• The Blue Jays played a split-squad matchup Sunday, and manager John Gibbons joined one half of his club against the Yankees in Tampa. That left DeMarlo Hale, Toronto's bench coach, to manage the squad facing Baltimore at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. Hale served as the Orioles' third-base coach last season.
