Jonathan Schoop was 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 8-4 win over the Red Sox.

The four hits were a career-high and included a pair of RBI doubles. The big night pulled his batting average up from .244 to .304. The 22-year-old has swung the bat better in recent days, so he's making a case to stick around even after Manny Machado (knee) comes off the disabled list.

Darren O'Day recorded four outs against the Red Sox on Friday for his first save of the season.

O'Day relieved Brian Matusz for the final out of the eighth inning and worked around a one-out walk for a scoreless ninth inning. The Orioles were up by four runs in the bottom of the ninth, so O's closer Tommy Hunter wouldn't have been eligible for the save if he pitched. O'Day now has six scoreless outings to begin the year.

Chris Tillman yielded three runs over five innings in a win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Tillman needed 122 pitches to make it through his five innings of work. He wasn't at his best, giving up seven hits and four walks, but he managed to avoid any serious damage and his teammates gave him plenty of run support. Tillman is now 2-1 with a 20/7 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings over four starts. He should remain a useful starter in mixed leagues this season, but his penchant for the fly ball should send his ERA north before long.

Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a walk, and two runs scored against the Red Sox on Friday.

Markakis now has back-to-back multi-hit games, pulling his batting average up to .273 for the year. He has only drawn two walks through 15 games, which isn't ideal as a leadoff man. But history suggests that he should get his fair share of free passes as the season moves along.

Nolan Reimold (neck) resumed baseball activities Friday.

Reimold has been dealing with a recurrence of his chronic neck injury and was moved to the 60-day DL earlier this month. The Orioles are hoping to get him back in late May, but it's far from a given.
Apr 18 - 5:34 PM

Manny Machado (knee) will play five innings at third base in an extended spring training game Saturday.

Machado was cleared after doing some sliding on Friday with no issues. It will be the third baseman's first game action since last October's knee surgery. The Orioles have been careful not to make any hard and fast deadlines for Machado, but it's beginning to look like he should be ready to go pretty early on in May.
Apr 18 - 5:32 PM

Manny Machado (knee) ran the bases again Thursday.

Machado ran the bases for the first time Wednesday, so it's a good sign that he was right back out there. The plan calls for him to slide for the first time Friday and play in an extended spring training game on Saturday. He's beginning to make encouraging progress.
Apr 17 - 5:17 PM

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey struck out seven batters while throwing six shutout innings for Low-A Delmarva on Wednesday night.

Harvey allowed one hit and one walk, but hit two batters, throwing 60 of his 103 pitches for strikes as he locked horns with fellow elite pitching prospect Lucas Giolito. Harvey has allowed three runs, eight hits, and four walks while striking out 18 and hitting three batters in 17 innings this season. His fastball sits 92-94 mph, his curveball is 78-81 mph with a hard downward snap, and his changeup is 85 mph with downward sink. The front-line arsenal is there.
Apr 17 - 10:05 AM

Manny Machado (knee) ran the bases for the first time Wednesday with no problems.

Machado had been running sprints in the days prior, but Wednesday was the first day he ran the bases in his recovery from October knee surgery. He'll continue running the bases for the rest of the week. No indication was given as to when he'll be cleared to take part in extended spring training games, but it shouldn't be too long now.
Apr 16 - 9:51 PM

Miguel Gonzalez picked up his first win of the season Wednesday, tossing five scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Rays.

Gonzalez whiffed six batters while allowing just three hits and three walks. He did need 98 pitches to get through five, which he was removed from relatively early. Still, Gonzalez has now been solid for two outings in a row after being blasted in his first start of the season. He'll try to keep the momentum going next week in Toronto.
Apr 16 - 4:02 PM

Tommy Hunter notched his fourth save of the season with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Hunter allowed a leadoff single to Desmond Jennings to start the ninth but bounce back with a groundout, a flyout and then a strikeout to end it. The Orioles closer blew a save the last time out but has pitched well overall this year, holding a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP to go along with a 5/0 K/BB ratio.
Apr 16 - 3:57 PM

Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Neither of Jones' hits left the infield, as he bunted for a single in the fourth and then beat out a swinging bunt in the fifth that plated a run. The outfielder had been slated to sit out Tuesday's game due to illness before it was rained out, but he wound up not having to miss a contest.
Apr 16 - 3:42 PM

Bud Norris will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday.

The O's have a couple relievers under the weather, so they'll have Norris on call just in case. If he doesn't pitch Wednesday, he'll be in line to start Saturday.
Apr 16 - 11:08 AM

Adam Jones is in the Orioles' lineup Wednesday.

Jones had been slated to sit out Tuesday's game due to illness before it was rained out, but he's feeling better now and won't have to miss any action after all. The outfielder is batting .240/.278/.380 with one homer and five RBI on the young season.
Apr 16 - 10:18 AM

Tuesday night's game between the Rays and Orioles has been postponed due to rain in Baltimore.

Miguel Gonzalez was scheduled to pitch for the host Orioles and Brandon Gomes was supposed to fill in for Jake Odorizzi on the Rays' side of things because Odorizzi is sick. No makeup date has been announced.
