Matusz sent to the emergency room
Following Tuesday's game, Orioles lefty Brian Matusz had to go to a local hospital after having an allergic reaction. Orioles assistant athletic trainer Brian Ebel accompanied Matusz, who was fine by Wednesday and was available to pitch if needed.
"He had to go to the emergency room last night, he had an allergic reaction to something he is allergic to, must have been in the [clubhouse] spread that he didn't know about," Showalter said. "Peanuts or something like that. He's fine."
Around the horn
Designated hitter Jim Thome (neck) participated his first instructional league game in Sarasota, Fla., on Wednesday. He did well, ran the bases and felt fine, Showalter said. He will play again Thursday morning along with left-hander Troy Patton, who will face two batters in the game. If all goes well, they will fly to Boston to join the team Thursday evening. ... Chris Tillman is expected to pitch Sunday afternoon in Boston. Saturday's starter is still listed as TBA. Zach Britton is probably the leading candidate, though Randy Wolf and Jake Arrieta are also being considered. ... Johnson notched his 44th save Tuesday, one shy of the Orioles' single season mark of 45 set by Randy Myers in 1997. ... The Orioles had three pinch hits Tuesday night, the most pinch hits in a game for the O's since June 23, 2009 at Florida. Entering Tuesday's game, the Orioles were 8-for-59 (.136) as pinch hitters, the lowest average in the majors.
