Showalter said he followed Thursday night's NBA Draft closely to see if pitching prospect Pat Connaughton would be selected. Connaughton, the Orioles' fourth-round pick out of Notre Dame last year, was selected by the Brooklyn Nets in the second round (41st overall) and was then traded to the Portland Trail Blazers. "When you take him, you know there's that type of possibility," Showalter said. "We think he's that type of prospect. I'm sure — I don't speak from knowing — that the NBA will separate that quickly. They're the best players in the world and if he's good enough, then he'll play there and God bless him. And it was a good risk to take because he was that type of prospect pitching-wise." … Orioles minor league right-hander Dennis Torres was suspended for 50 games without pay for testing positive a second time for a drug of abuse. Torres, the Orioles' 28th-round selection in 2012 out of the University of Massachusetts, is currently with Double-A Bowie. He is 5-1 with a 2.04 ERA in 18 games (one start) with Bowie and High-A Frederick. He has allowed 26 hits over 35 1/3 innings with 22 strikeouts and 17 walks. … Chris Davis made his first start in right field this season Friday. It was also his first outfield start in a regular-season game since 2012. … Outfielder Steve Pearce was voted to be featured as the annual fan's choice bobblehead, beating out teammates Zach Britton, Chen, Darren O'Day and Bud Norris in a fan vote. The Pearce bobblehead will be given out to the first 25,000 fans age 15 and over at the Orioles' regular-season home finale on Oct. 4.
