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.

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.

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.

Loyola senior guard Dylon Cormier had surgery on his left hand Wednesday and is likely to miss the remainder of the season, the school announced. The surgery was to repair two fractures sustained in the Greyhounds' game against Army on Saturday. As we wrote heading into that game, Cormier had been carrying a large offensive load for Loyola as one of the top scorers in the country . The injury was suffered in Saturday's second half on a loose-ball situation. "Dylon has been the soul of this year's team, and we are certainly thinking about him and wishing the best for his recovery," coach G.G. Smith said in a statement.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Saturday at FanFest that the club offered first baseman Chris Davis a long-term contract extension this winter, but that “it really hasn't progressed.” Davis, who finished third in American League Most Valuable Player voting last season, can't be a free agent until after the 2015 season. Davis said he didn't think there had been any discussions between the Orioles and his agent, Scott Boras, since last season, and joked that he wanted to know more about what Duquette had said.

Elizabeth Klein is used to the spotlight, but there was something the budding actress from Bethesda didn't want everyone to see. That was a telltale mark on her throat from thyroid surgery. "I don't want every character I play to have the same scar," said Klein, who had a thyroidectomy on Jan. 10. "It's a very obvious scar. " But Klein doesn't have a scar, at least not a visible one, anymore. Her doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital have recently begun offering a "facelift" style procedure that hides evidence of surgery behind her ear and under her hair.

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.
