Worth noting

• Steve Johnson (left oblique strain) threw two innings on Friday with no problem and he will pitch for short-season Aberdeen next.

• Outfielder Eric Thames (left hand fracture) was activated from the disabled list and got his first start in the Orioles' organization on Friday, playing right field for Triple-A Norfolk.

• With Friday's win, Showalter became just the fourth Major League manager to win 250 or more games with four different teams. Showalter's previous three stops were with the New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers.
