• Pitcher Jason Hammel played catch on Friday with no issues and will do so again on Saturday as he works his way back up to the mound. He was shut down after having some discomfort while trying to play catch in San Diego and had a cortisone injection after that.
• Bud Norris, who pitched in relief in Wednesday's loss in Arizona, will still start Saturday's game and right-hander Scott Feldman will pitch on Sunday.
• Prior to Friday's game, the Orioles recognized players and coaches of the Baltimore RBI League champion teams in an on-field ceremony. The champions honored were Liberty Road (12-and-under age group), the Gardenville Grays (13-15), the Parkville Patriots (16-18) and the Baltimore Rattlers (softball). More than 500 Baltimore teenagers participated in the Orioles-funded league this summer.
