BOSTON -- Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, who left Sunday night's game in the seventh inning with a strained right hamstring, said following the game that he doesn't know the severity of the injury. Hardy has already missed six games this season with lower back spasms, and while he has recovered from those issues, he said they might have had something to do with his hamstring injury. "Never had this before,” Hardy said. “When I came back from the back thing, I felt this hamstring was really tight.

TORONTO - Before the fifth inning of the Orioles' 9-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, umpires inspected right-hander Miguel Gonzalez's glove for a foreign substance at the request of Toronto manager John Gibbons. They found nothing, but Gibbons said after the game they noticed something peculiar when watching Gonzalez on video.  “We saw on the video it looked like he was going into his glove and rubbing his fingers going directly to the ball,” Gibbons said. “I know guys use stuff to get a better grip, but if you go directly to the ball ... we thought we'd take a look.

DETROIT - After Friday's game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter presented the media with some updates from the minor league complex in Sarasota, Fla. ** Third baseman Manny Machado (knee) had a "functional" day Thursday in which he did pretty much all baseball activities: Hit, field, run a little. He felt good during it, Showalter said. Perhaps more important, he felt good Friday. Returning the next day after a tough workout without pain is obviously a good sign. There is no timetable for Machado's return, but he likely won't return until late April, at the earliest.

BOSTON - Orioles manager Buck Showalter, the king of early ballpark arrivals on the road, admitted it was a little difficult to turn off his alarm around 6 a.m. coming off Sunday night's game. Thank goodness for the cup of coffee Showalter had sitting on his desk in the visiting clubhouse at Fenway Park on Monday morning. The Orioles will have an extremely quick turnaround, with an 11:05 a.m. start against the Red Sox for the annual Patriots' Day game, which coincides with the Boston Marathon.

BOSTON - Whether the Orioles' dust-up with the Boston Red Sox on Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park galvanizes their clubhouse remains to be seen over the course of a season still in its infancy. Regardless, the dugout-emptying confrontation between Orioles pitcher Bud Norris and Red Sox catcher David Ross in the Orioles' 4-2 loss is an example of the intensity of life in the American League East no matter the calendar date. All was normal until Ross stepped to the batter's box with a man on first and no outs in the seventh inning with the game tied at 2. Looking to bunt, he believed some of Norris' deliveries were coming close to his head, and he didn't like that.

Buck Showalter not only has baseball talents, Baltimore -- he's also quite a believable prankster. The folks at Major League Baseball's Fan Cave just posted a really funny video where Showalter "punks" relief pitcher Darren O'Day. Here's the setup: O'Day thinks he's being interviewed by a Wall Street Journal reporter about his fondness for something called a "Solowheel," a unicycle-type thing that he's apparently getting paid to endorse. In the middle of demonstrating the device, Showalter storms up and asks him what the heck he thinks he's doing.

Before the masses start thinking that there's a rift between Orioles third baseman Mark Reynolds and manager Buck Showalter, let's squash that -- and tell you about what you don't see on television. What you did see Friday night in the Orioles' 13-inning 6-4 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park was Reynolds hit his first homer of the season, a booming shot over the Green Monster in the third inning that ended a personal 0-for-13 streak and a 76-at bat homerless drought going back to last season (Watch the video by clicking HERE )

After sprinting six times and taking four at-bats in a simulated game Monday, injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado really has one more thing to accomplish before beginning to play in games at extended spring training -- and that could happen as early as Tuesday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Machado ran 90-foot sprints six times Monday, but he has not yet cut on the bases while running. He is going to run 180-foot sprints Tuesday and could add cutting around the diamond then.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter will have a lot of issues to deal with over the course of spring training - which officially begins today - but he doesn't seem the least bit worried about his starting rotation, even though he concedes that there are a few things he might have to worry about. “We're probably at 9, 10, 11 guys that we're looking at," he said Tuesday. “You've got to say 'What if?' If [Jason Hammel] has a knee issue or Miguel [Gonzalez] has some issue or [Wei-Yin] Chen or something, we'll be able to move in a lot of different directions.

Before today's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Orioles manager Buck Showalter got on top of his pregame soapbox and talked about how most barehanded plays don't need to be made. He reminisced about his days as an analyst at ESPN and about how he thought the network too often fell in love with a barehanded play that was more style than substance. But third baseman Manny Machado's ninth-inning barehanded throwout of  Desmond Jennings in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay wasn't one of those plays.

BOSTON - During every game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has a card with him that tells him which plays are reviewable and which ones aren't. The color coding is simple. The plays in green can be reviewable, the plays in red cannot. But it's not always that easy, and that was the case in the Orioles' 6-5 loss to the Red Sox on Sunday night . After the Red Sox scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth, Showalter wanted the umpires to review whether Dustin Pedroia tagged up at third base before running to the plate on an errant throw home.

BOSTON -- After doing sliding drills Friday for the first time since offseason knee surgery, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will see his first game action Saturday at extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla. Machado is scheduled to play five innings at third base, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. His playing time will grow each game until he is ready to go on a minor league rehab assignment.

The flu that hit the Orioles clubhouse last week affected two more players Tuesday. The Orioles sent center fielder Adam Jones and right-handed relief pitcher Evan Meek home from Camden Yards before the game against the Tampa Bay Rays was postponed because of rain. Neither player would have been available if the Orioles and Rays would have played. “From what I understand, it's going on all over,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It's not just in our locker room. Unfortunately, a lot of it is unavoidable other than don't touch or communicate with people all day. That's pretty hard to do in this sport.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he didn't think left-hander Wei-Yin Chen had one of his better games Monday, but the results were undoubtedly there. After two subpar outings, Chen finally lasted more than six innings and allowed fewer than four runs -- something he hadn't done in his first two starts this year. In fact, he gave up just one run Monday against the Tampa Bay Rays, and he didn't allow a hit until James Loney 's one-out double in the fifth. Overall, he allowed five hits, two walks and struck out four in 6 1/3 innings, lowering his season ERA from 6.75 to 4.76.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was tossed in the top of the sixth Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels after complaining about home plate umpire Angel Campos' strike zone. When Campos called a pitch that appeared to be well off the plate a strike against Nick Markakis in the sixth, Showalter yelled something and was immediately ejected. It was his first of the season and 20th of his career for Showalter. John Russell took over managing duties. Showalter has been displeased with the strike zones in each of the games during the Angels series.

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz was back in uniform Sunday morning and back on the mound later in the day. Matusz missed the first two games of the series against the Toronto Blue Jays with a virus that caused him to spend time in a local hospital Friday afternoon. He had to receive IV fluids and wasn't released until later that night. "I think that was just to get on IVs, and make sure everything was OK, and make sure that it wasn't a stomach problem," Matusz said. "It was more precautionary.
