Outfielder Austin Hays (shoulder) hit in the simulated game and threw for the first time since getting a cortisone injection in his shoulder Thursday. Showalter said there was expected stiffness in Hays’ shoulder after the throws, and after further treatment Tuesday, he’d serve as the designated hitter Wednesday. … The Orioles made another round of cuts Tuesday morning, mostly to thin the list of pitchers in major league camp. The club cut four pitchers — optioning right-handers Stefan Crichton, Michael Kelly and Yefry Ramírez to Triple-A Norfolk, while reassigning nonroster left-hander Andrew Faulkner to minor league camp. The Orioles also reassigned nonroster outfielder Jaycob Brugman, who was acquired in November, to minor league camp. Later in the day, they optioned right-hander Davis Hess to Norfolk and reassigned right-hander Jeff Ferrell to minor league camp.
