Zach Britton threw a 20-pitch, one inning simulated game Tuesday at Guaranteed Rate Field and will throw a two-inning simulated game Saturday in Tampa.

Happy 62nd birthday to Buck Showalter
Kevin Gausman threw 6 1/3 scoreless innings and matched a career-high with 10 strikeouts, but the Orioles' bullpen couldn't find a way to finish the job on Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. Mychal Givens and Richard Bleier combined to give up three runs in an eighth inning that started with a leadoff triple glancing off the heel of right fielder Mark Trumbo's glove as the Orioles blew a two-run lead in a 3-2 loss to the White Sox.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Tuesday.
Manny Machado, Mark Trumbo and Adam Jones all homered for the Orioles and sparked a 3-2 victory over the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field. Brad Brach notched his seventh save of the season, as Andrew Cashner (2-5) picked up the win.
Machado's presence created a palpable buzz 3 1/2 hours before the Orioles were set to begin their four-game series against the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field on Monday.

Cashner unleashes soccer skills to get the out
The road woes continue for the Orioles, who, after dropping a 5-0 affair at Fenway Park on Sunday, fell to 1-15 over their last 16 road tilts and 4-19 overall on the road for the season.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Sunday.
Dylan Bundy gave up four runs to the Red Sox, who hit three home runs off the right-hander as the Orioles lost to Boston 6-3 at Fenway Park on Saturday night. Bundy, who allowed four home runs and seven runs without retiring a batter on May 8, two starts ago, was undone by the long ball again. He's given up 13 homers this season.
Alex Cobb earned his first win in his seventh start for the Orioles, pitching 6 1/3 innings in Baltimore's 7-4 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Friday night. Cobb got plenty of run support, as Adam Jones and Manny Machado each drove in two runs. Boston's Mookie Betts had three hits, including his 14th homer, but Drew Pomeranz struggled in four innings.
Orioles closer Zach Britton threw two innings of batting practice Friday, and he's getting ready for a simulated game in Chicago on Tuesday.
After a laborious first inning -- needing 36 pitches, just 18 for strikes, facing seven batters, allowing two runs on a J.D. Martinez two-run homer -- right-hander Kevin Gausman appeared to settle down against the Red Sox on Thursday night at Fenway Park. He faced one batter over the minimum in his next three innings.
Despite his paltry offensive numbers, it was somewhat of a surprise when the Orioles announced Thursday afternoon that catcher Caleb Joseph had been optioned to Triple-A Norfolk with catcher Andrew Susac being recalled to take his place on the roster.

Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette isn't rushing to trade star third baseman Manny Machado in the middle of what has been a Most Valuable Player Award-caliber year. But Duquette isn't ruling out a potential trade in the immediate or distant future, either.
At the quarter-season mark, the American League East has basically been a clash between traditional heavyweights, New York and Boston. However, there's a lot of baseball to be played in the summer of 2018. Will the Yankees or Red Sox run away with it? Or will the Blue Jays, Orioles or Rays find a way to fight their way back into contention? Here's a look at where each of the teams in the AL East stacks up with three-quarters of the season remaining.
Andrew Cashner hasn't won in his past seven starts, and other than one tough inning on Wednesday afternoon at Camden Yards, he pitched well enough against the Phillies to end that streak. Unfortunately, Cashner's opposite, Nick Pivetta, limited the Orioles to two hits in seven innings, striking out a career-high 11 batters as Baltimore lost, 4-1.
Adam Jones homered in the first inning of Wednesday's contest against the Phillies at Camden Yards. It was Jones' seventh home run of the season, and gave the Orioles a 1-0 lead.
Chance Adams put his early struggles behind him on Wednesday in his first truly dominant outing of the season.
Orioles closer Zach Britton took another step forward in his rehab from offseason Achilles surgery, throwing 15 pitches with outfielder Craig Gentry at the plate. It marked the first time Britton has faced hitters, and the plan is for him to throw a simulated game next week when the team is in Chicago.
Is the front office going to remain open to trades in light of the Orioles' hot streak? Brittany Ghiroli answers this and more in the latest Inbox.
Orioles first baseman Chris Davis and his wife Jill hosted the second annual "Crush's Homers for Hearts" on Monday, a fundraiser that benefits this Pediatric Heart Program of the University of Maryland Children's Hospital.
Joey Rickard hit 2 of 4 Orioles homers to power Baltimore to a blowout win in the finale of their 4-game series with Tampa Bay. Danny Valencia and Trey Mancini also went deep, and Manny Machado hit 2 RBI doubles as part of a 19-hit attack. Dylan Bundy bounced back with a strong effort (7 IP, 7 K's). Blake Snell struggled for the Rays, allowing 5 ER in 3 1/3 IP.
Outfielder Joey Rickard, who was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk prior to Sunday's blowout 17-1 win in the series finale against the Rays, wasted no time making his mark on the Orioles, slugging his first two homers of the season in his first three at-bats and later adding an RBI single.

Pink was everywhere on Sunday at Camden Yards, as the Orioles and Rays -- in conjunction with teams from around baseball -- showed their love to their mothers in support of a good cause.
Orioles rookie David Hess tossed five scoreless frames after a shaky first, recording a quality start in a memorable debut that highlighted a win over the Rays in Game 1 of a doubleheader. The victory, which gave Baltimore a season-high four game-winning streak, saw red-hot Manny Machado homer for the fourth time in three games and Jonathan Schoop deliver a pair of solo blasts off Rays starter Chris Archer.
A thunder and hail storm knocked Orioles starter Alex Cobb from the game in the sixth, and the bullpen faltered as Baltimore fell, 10-3, to the Rays on Saturday night in the second game of a doubleheader.
Manny Machado is showing no signs of slowing down. The shortstop hit his second consecutive first-inning homer, and followed up with a grand slam in the seventh to power the Orioles to a 9-4 win over the Rays at Camden Yards. Machado's six RBIs were supplemented by solo homers from Chance Sisco and Mark Trumbo. Kevin Gausman allowed just two earned runs in 7 1/3 to help the Orioles win their third straight game.
Struggling Orioles starter Chris Tillman went to the disabled list on Friday with a low back strain. Tillman, who has failed to get out of the second inning in each of his last two starts, saw his season ERA climb over 10.00 on Thursday night, when he allowed six runs (five earned) in 1 1/3 innings against the Royals. Afterward, the righty called his performance "frustrating," but insisted physically he was fine.
Behind homers from Manny Machado, Trey Mancini and Adam Jones, the Orioles erased an early deficit for a series-clinching win over the Royals. The victory, highlighted by 4 2/3 scoreless innings by reliever Miguel Castro, marked a season high in runs scored. It's also just the second time this season the O's have won back-to-back games. Salvador Perez hit a first-inning grand slam on his 28th birthday for the Royals, who gave up leads of 4-0 and 6-3.
Orioles shortstop Manny Machado entered Thursday night's game against the Royals leading baseball with a .369 average against right-handed pitchers. He continued that torrid pace in his first at-bat against Ian Kennedy, connecting for two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning.

Andrew Cashner allowed three runs over six innings for the O's, while Royals lefty Eric Skoglund gave up three runs in 6 1/3 frames.
The Orioles placed Darren O'Day on the 10-day disabled list prior to Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Royals, adding lefty Tanner Scott in his stead.

The Orioles are looking for any spark to ignite their roster, but the return of Jonathan Schoop could be that spark. Baltimore's starting second baseman was activated from the 10-day disabled list before Tuesday's series opener against the Royals.
