Logan Ondrusek (ankle) did fielding drills on Monday.

Ondrusek rolled his ankle on Saturday and still hasn't been cleared to return to mound work, but that should be coming soon. It's a very minor issue here in the early weeks of spring training.

Robert Andino returned to Orioles camp Monday.

Andino was excused on Sunday to tend to a private family matter. The veteran utilityman is trying to win a spot on the Baltimore bench, but that will be a tall task. He posted a weak .583 OPS in 13 games with the Marlins last season.

Orioles designated LHP T.J. McFarland for assignment.

The move creates a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly-acquired Vidal Nuno. According to reports, the O's are hopeful that McFarland will pass through waivers unclaimed and could still fight for a spot in the club's bullpen.
Feb 19 - 6:16 PM

Orioles acquired LHP Vidal Nuno from the Dodgers for RHP Ryan Moseley.

The 29-year-old southpaw has now been traded four times in the past three years. Nuno compiled a 3.53 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 7.8 K/9 over 58 2/3 innings primarily out of the bullpen for the Mariners in 2016. He'll add valuable depth to the Orioles with his ability to both start and pitch effectively out of the bullpen.

Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are closing in on deal to acquire Vidal Nuno from the Dodgers.

Minor league right-hander Ryan Moseley would head back to the Dodgers in the reported deal. Given the current state of the O's starting pitching depth, Nuno could challenge for a spot in the Opening Day rotation or serve as a valuable cog in a long-relief role.

Anthony Santander (shoulder) might not bat right-handed early on in spring training.

The switch-hitter is coming back from shoulder surgery and is more affected when batting from the right side. Santander, a Rule 5 pick, is competing for a bench job in Orioles camp.
Feb 19 - 1:45 PM

T.J. McFarland dealt with some left shoulder soreness on Saturday.

He reported feeling better on Sunday, so it sounds like the southpaw should resume throwing shortly. McFarland is trying to win a bullpen job with the Orioles this spring.
Feb 19 - 1:42 PM

Logan Ondrusek may not pitch in an intrasquad game Wednesday after rolling his ankle Saturday.

It doesn't sound like anything that will keep him out long. Ondrusek is competing for a spot in the Orioles' bullpen this spring.
Feb 19 - 1:39 PM

Robert Andino has left Orioles camp in order to tend to a family matter.

It's unclear how long he might be away. Andino is competing for a utility job with the O's but is likely to begin the season at Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters on Saturday that J.J. Hardy's MRI resuts came back clean.

Hardy underwent an MRI and a CT scan on Friday, but it looks as though everything came back without issue. Hardy is expected to be cleared for baseball activities around March 1 and could play in games by March 10.
Feb 18 - 1:44 PM

Orioles signed OF Craig Gentry to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 33-year-old hit just .147/.237/.176 in 39 plate appearances with the Angels in 2016 and was subsequently released in early August. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder role with the O's.
Feb 18 - 9:52 AM

J.J. Hardy underwent an MRI on his lower back on Thursday and a CT scan on Friday.

Initial reports traced Hardy's absence from Friday's first full-squad workout due to illness, but he's apparently dealing with something more substantial. The results of the tests aren't in yet, so more will obviously be known about the shortstop's status once they're revealed. Hardy said Friday that, ideally, he'll be ready to resume baseball activities on March 1.
Feb 17 - 12:34 PM

J.J. Hardy was held out of the Orioles' first full-squad workout on Friday due to illness.

It's no big deal. Hardy should be back in action in a day or two.
Feb 17 - 11:20 AM

Brad Brach will make $3.05 million this season after winning his arbitration hearing with the Orioles.

The O's had offered the reliever $2.525 million. Brach earned the raise after putting up a 2.05 ERA with 92 strikeouts in 79 innings last season out of the Baltimore bullpen.
Feb 17 - 10:38 AM

Chris Davis reiterated on Friday that his left thumb is no longer an issue.

Davis dealt with soreness in the thumb for much of last season, and it probably helped lead to a relatively disappointing .221/.332/.459 batting line (although he still hit 38 homers and drove in 84 runs). We could see the slugger's slash line improve in 2017 if he can remain healthy.
