Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen is scheduled to start in a Triple-A game Monday instead of pitching in the Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox. With Opening Day a week away, Chen not pitching against Boston would seem to indicate that he will start the team’s third game of the season against the Red Sox. That also allows the Orioles to place their only left-handed starter in the middle of the rotation. … Head trainer Richie Bancells ran out to the mound Sunday when Showalter removed left-hander Zach Britton in the eighth inning, prompting concern as to whether Britton was injured, but Bancells just misheard Showalter. … Rule 5 pick Michael Almanzar sat out Sunday’s game with a sore knee after fouling a ball off it. … Catcher Caleb Joseph was reassigned to minor league camp following Sunday’s game. Joseph was 3-for-16 this spring. In another roster move Sunday, Adams was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. The Orioles now have 41 players remaining in major league camp. … Showalter said he’s noticed more scouts in recent days and a steady number throughout the spring. “A lot of vultures are lurking with our out-of-option guys,” he said. “We’ve got quite an attendance there. I get a list of the scouts every day. If anything, it’s gotten more. We had 17 here the other day.” … The club announced its minor league signing of former Orioles reliever Luis Ayala, who threw a bullpen session at Twin Lakes Park on Sunday. … Showalter said left-hander Troy Patton’s scoreless seventh inning Sunday, in which he hit 93 mph, was his best outing of the spring. … Former Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada, who signed a minor league deal with the Chicago Cubs in the offseason, was released Sunday. He allowed seven earned runs and 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings this spring.
