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.

On one cupcake, a bunny's back feet, ample behind and fluffy tail are all that can be glimpsed of the creature as it plunges down a rabbit hole. Speckled robins' eggs and jelly beans sit atop knolls of bright green grass on other cupcakes, and a neon-colored marshmallow chick tops a fourth variety. Created on mounds of butter cream frosting with a signature swirl, they are among the Easter offerings at Kupcakes & Co., an Elkridge bakery that produces 10,000 cupcakes a week. Ninety specialty flavors such as Pancakes and Bacon, Strawberries and Champagne, and Salted Caramel rotate on the bakery's daily flavor calendar.

How long do the fatigue and "brain fog" last after general anesthesia for surgery? It depends - on your age, the specific drugs used, how long the surgery took and how healthy you were to start with. These days, most general anesthesia is short-acting, which means you wake up quickly and the drugs are mostly out of your system within a few hours, said Dr. Carl Rosow, an anesthesiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. But tiny amounts can linger for up to seven days - enough so that you may not feel completely normal, especially if you also have a drink or two. Moreover, if you are one of the unlucky 20 percent to 40 percent of patients who have nausea and vomiting after general anesthesia, that can add considerably to your recovery time because of dehydration and weakness from not eating, said Dr. John Ulatowski, director and chair of the department of anesthesia and critical care at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Dylan Bundy was months into rehabilitating his surgically repaired right elbow, and the tedium of throwing exercises was beginning to test the 21-year-old's mettle. He wanted to feel that he was advancing. He wanted to get the competitive juices flowing. Really, the Orioles phenom wanted to be a pitcher again, not just some guy tossing a baseball 90 or 180 feet on a back field in Florida. And then Brady Anderson made a simple gesture - partly motivational, partly for his own survival.

The general belief is that players recovering from hamate bone surgery -- as Nick Markakis is now -- have a short recovery time, but it can take a while for them to regain their full power at the plate. But a glance at some notable cases shows players can return to form farily quickly from the wrist injury . Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia played the final two months of the 2007 season (including the team's run to the World Series) with a cracked hamate bone in his left wrist.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The pain in Dylan Bundy's electric right arm is gone. It's the 21-year-old phenom's first victory of 2014. Bundy's rehabilitation from elbow ligament reconstruction surgery last summer has been a tedious climb full of small steps, but the Orioles' pitching prospect has learned the value of patience. Sixteen months ago, when he made his major league debut, Bundy was on the fast track. But he hasn't pitched in a regular season game at any level since Sept. 25, 2012, the second of his two appearances with the Orioles following a call-up that month to end his first professional season.

Lefty Tsuyoshi Wada had season-ending elbow-ligament (Tommy John) surgery Friday in California. Dr. Lewis Yocum, who removed bone spurs from Wada's elbow in 2007, performed Friday's surgery. The Orioles issued the following statement from Wada: “The procedure went as planned and Dr. Yocum felt good about how it went. He predicts a full recovery,” Wada said. “I'm glad to have this over with and look forward to beginning my rehabilitation so I can get back to pitching for the Orioles as soon as possible.” There is no set timetable on when he will return to Sarasota, Fla., to begin his rehab.

Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia will undergo arthroscopic surgery at a New York hospital Friday to correct a small meniscus tear in his right knee. Sabathia is scheduled to begin his regular routine in preparation for spring training three to six weeks after the surgery. In the meantime, manager Joe Girardi reportedly has begun to talk with the Yankees about the parameters of a new three-year contract for between $9 million and $10 million. And the Yankees declined to pick up the options of Lance Berkman ($15 million)

Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will have surgery Thursday to repair a herniated disc in his back and is expected to be out 12 weeks. The Oilers didn't provide a timeline for his return, saying Wednesday that he's "out indefinitely," but Khabibulin's agent, Jay Grossman , said the goalie will need 12 weeks to recover. Khabibulin, who signed a $15 million, four-year contract over the summer, hasn't played since Nov. 16. He's 7-9-2 with a 3.03 goals-against average.

Freshman midfielder Stephen Kelly (Calvert Hall) underwent surgery on his broken right wrist this week and will be out indefinitely for No. 6 North Carolina, including Saturday's game against No. 10 Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. Kelly suffered the injury in the first quarter of last Tuesday's 13-10 win over Harvard but completed the game, winning 13 faceoffs against and getting eight ground balls. He missed Saturday's 11-8 victory over then-No. 1 Maryland. North Carolina used Brent Armstrong (6-for-16)

I have a 14-year-old female West Highland terrier. She was recently diagnosed with a collapsed trachea.  She is eating and drinking fine. She has this horrible seal-like cough upon rising from a supine position and when she overexerts herself. My vet has been trying to treat her with Prednisone, antibiotics and a bronchodilator. Nothing seems to be helping her. I was thinking about taking her to someone else for a second opinion, but I am not sure it would do any good. Are there any other treatments besides surgery for a collapsed trachea?

TAMPA, FLA. - The results weren't particularly impressive, but Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen seemed happy with his performance in his first competitive appearance since undergoing offseason surgery to remove bone spurs from his right knee. Chen worked two innings and allowed two runs on five hits in Tuesday night's 3-2 Grapefruit League victory over the New York Yankees at George M. Steinbrenner Field, but the important thing was that he felt comfortable on the mound. “I felt pretty good,” he said through his interpreter.

Wilson Betemit will not need surgery on his right wrist, which he reinjured during batting practice Friday in Oakland, according to Showalter. Betemit saw a hand specialist in Sarasota on Monday, who determined from tests that Betemit, who was on the disabled list in August with a similar wrist injury, is just dealing with inflammation. “They didn't feel like he needed surgery. That was good news,” Showalter said. “So he is going to probably get [a cortisone] injection and wait for the inflammation to go down.” Betemit is likely out for the season, but Showalter was not ready to concede that yet, preferring to see how quickly the inflammation subsides.

When she was a little girl, if a bad dream would wake her up in the middle of the night, Julie Murn would pad down the hall of the silent house to her big sister's room. She'd crawl into Kathy's bed, grab hold of her nightgown and hold tight. "Just," she says, "to make sure she was there. " And she always was. The sisters have been together, one way or another, for as long as either one can remember. Born 18 months apart, they fill page after page of their family's worn albums with impish grins and exuberant poses — familiar pages they revisited recently, sitting knee to knee on Julie's living room sofa, giggling and groaning as steam curled from their coffee mugs.

Walter G. Amprey was driving his wife, Andrea, home from a restaurant one night last December when he turned onto an on-ramp for the Baltimore Beltway. A sudden dizziness overcame him. He blacked out. The family SUV ran off the road and rolled into a tree. The pair survived, but Amprey had suffered severe heart failure. It would take a team of surgeons at the University of Maryland Medical Center - and a new operating-room technique - to give him his best chance for a full and rapid recovery.

North Carolina senior Brittney Coppa will miss this season after tearing the ACL in her left knee during a scrimmage against the U.S. national team in Florida Jan. 26. The North Carroll graduate plans to have surgery in a couple weeks, Tar Heels coach Jenny Levy said, but hasn't decided whether she will redshirt. A third-team All-American, Coppa was expected to be a key component in an otherwise young midfield that has to replace Tewaaraton Award finalist Kara Cannizzaro and Emily Garrity.
