Bud Norris surrendered three runs over four innings Friday against the Rays.

Norris lowered his spring ERA to 8.62, so that's something. After striking out one and walking two today, he's sporting a 10/11 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings. He's certainly pitched the worst of the Orioles' rotation options, but since he's coming off a 15-win season, it's hard to imagine the team sending him to the pen. He'll probably get the month of April to work through his troubles.

Jonathan Villar (ankle) has been cleared for game action.

Villar was held out of workouts for a day due to a sprained ankle, but he's fine. The 23-year-old has a good shot at a utility role with a .286/.390/.486 batting line so far this camp.

Mike Montgomery gave up three runs in an inning of work before Friday's game against the Orioles was cut short due to rain.

Montgomery opened camp as a reliever, only to be thrust into the rotation mix because of the Rays' myriad injuries. If the season started tomorrow, either Montgomery or Everett Teaford, who started today and allowed one run in two innings, would be the Rays' fifth starter. Still, our guess is that the Rays will grab a veteran cut by another team to round out their rotation.

Twins sent RHP Lester Oliveros outright to Triple-A Rochester.

They now have an extra spot on their 40-man roster, which they're likely to use to add Blaine Boyer. Oliveros was sent to minor league camp earlier this month.
Mar 27 - 3:54 PM

Marlins re-assigned INF Scott Sizemore to minor league camp.

Sizemore had four hits in just 12 spring at-bats. The oft-injured infielder will provide depth at Triple-A.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Friday that it "could be unlikely" Domonic Brown (Achilles) is ready for Opening Day.

Sandberg said the outfielder is coming along "slowly" in his recovery from left Achilles tendinitis, an ailment he was diagnosed with a week ago. Brown had been hoping to return to game action around the middle of next week, but it's sounding like that won't happen. The Phillies might be forced to start Jeff Francoeur in right field on Opening Day.

J.J. Hardy left Friday's game against the Rays with a sore left shoulder.

Hardy banged his shoulder on the ground on a dive up the middle. He's expected to be fine, though, as he wanted to take his next at-bat before Orioles manager Buck Showalter overruled him. Consider Hardy day-to-day.
Mar 27 - 2:52 PM

Justin Verlander has been diagnosed with a right triceps cramp.

Verlander had to exit Friday's game with the ailment. Obviously any injury to a pitcher's arm is far from ideal, but the Tigers are convinced it's no big deal and expect the right-hander to be ready for his final spring training start next week. Verlander will be re-evaluated on Saturday.
