Outfielder Steve Pearce, on the 15-day disabled list with left wrist tendinitis, is getting a cortisone injection this week, Showalter said. The manager is still hopeful Pearce will rejoin the Orioles this month, but it now likely won't be when he is first eligible Sept. 12. … Left-hander Zach Britton was "a little sore" on Thursday, so Showalter said he's not sure exactly when Britton will pitch in the playoffs for short-season Single-A Aberdeen. It likely will be a start either Sunday or Tuesday, if the IronBirds advance. … Left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is currently in Sarasota, Fla., working at the organization's facility. Showalter was non-committal on whether Wada would join the Orioles at all this season. Wada signed a two-year, $8.15 million contract before the 2012 season but had Tommy John surgery in May 2012 and has not pitched in the big leagues. … Friday marked the 18th anniversary of Cal Ripken Jr.'s 2,131st consecutive game played, breaking Lou Gehrig's streak. Ripken went on to play in 2,632 straight games, the current major league record. Center fielder Adam Jones is the club's current active leader, playing in his 305th consecutive game Friday.
