• Outfielder Nick Markakis took batting practice as expected Sunday at the team's spring facility in Sarasota, Fla., as he continues to progress toward playing in games.

• Right-hander Chris Tillman, slowed this spring by abdominal soreness, threw 62 pitches over four innings Sunday in a Minor League game and received positive reports.

• The Blake High School baseball team in Montgomery County, Md., will have a No. 4 stitched into this year's hats to honor Orioles manager and Hall of Famer Earl Weaver, who passed away in January.
