On the heels of Friday night's news that the Orioles are close to bringing back Miguel Tejada, the veteran infielder will report to extended spring camp in Sarasota, Fla., for a physical Monday and will work out before the two sides officially agree on a deal. Showalter said the first step for Tejada is obviously to pass the physical and didn't comment much further, saying he pays more attention to the active team.
Down in extended spring camp, Zach Britton (left shoulder impingement) threw 47 pitches in a three-inning simulated game, and he remains on track to throw his first game in extended spring on Thursday. Catcher Taylor Teagarden (back) also reported "feeling better" the last two days.
Luis Exposito made his Major League debut as a defensive replacement at catcher in the 12th inning of Friday's game.
Boston scratched Will Middlebrooks, who was dealing with a tight hamstring, from Saturday's lineup.
