• Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley, also battling the flu, was not with the team on Saturday.

"That's about as bad as a human being can look, [the way] he looked last night at about 6 o'clock," Showalter said of Presley. "We've had seven, eight, nine cases since the spring. Trying to keep it from spreading. Expecting one every other day now."
