Worth noting

• Prior to Thursday's game, the Orioles trimmed their Spring Training roster, re-assigning catcher Jose Gil and infielder Niuman Romero to Minor League camp.

With the moves, the Orioles have 51 players remaining in camp.

Gil, who spent all of last season in the Yankees' farm system, went hitless in 10 at-bats this spring. The backstop hit .213 with six homers and 32 RBIs with the Double-A Trenton Thunder last season.

As for Niuman, he returns to the Minors after collecting a respectable four hits in 11 at-bats this spring for a .364 average. Niuman signed with the Orioles this offseason after hitting .300 with nine homers and 67 RBIs in 135 games with the Erie SeaWolves, Detroit's Double-A affiliate.
