Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery last June, has increased his throwing progression to 120 feet this week. If all goes well, he will lengthen that to 150 feet next week. He's on pace to throw off a mound next month, but Bundy said he sees his recovery as a "day-to-day" situation. … With Machado recovering from offseason knee surgery this spring, Showalter indicated that Rule 5 pick Michael Almanzar will see a lot of Grapefruit League game action at third base this spring rather than Ryan Flaherty, who will be competing for the starting second base job. … Showalter said that Brian Matusz, Zach Britton, Steve Johnson, T.J. McFarland, Kevin Gausman and Alfredo Aceves could all make the team as either starters or relievers. The club will likely stretch all of them out to start and decrease innings for some when roles become clear in mid-March. Right-hander Josh Stinson will compete for a roster spot exclusively as a reliever. … The Orioles have scheduled an intrasquad game for Feb. 27 and could have additional games on Feb. 25 or Feb. 26 if the innings are needed. … The Orioles had early offseason interest in right-hander Chad Gaudin, who failed his physical with the Philadelphia Phillies, but were also uncomfortable with his medical records.
