SARASOTA, Fla. -- Quintin Berry exited Monday's workout with a back spasm, and the outfielder will get an MRI to make sure it's nothing more serious.

Berry said he hadn't dealt with the issue before and didn't seem overly worried about it being a problem. The non-roster invitee was in the Orioles' clubhouse walking around and was optimistic he would be at practice on Tuesday.

"I hope. We'll see," manager Buck Showalter said of Berry's back being a minor issue. "He went down pretty good there."

Pitcher Brian Matusz will leave the team a few days after pitching in Wednesday's intrasquad game to get a wart removed from his left index finger in Philadelphia. Matusz had the same issue in the spring of 2011 and also went to Philly. He is expected to be sidelined for at least four or five days after the procedure.
