• Showalter said Joel Pineiro's surgery was "more extensive" than initially thought. Dr. James Andrews operated on Pineiro, who was diagnosed with a SLAP tear in his right labrum, on Tuesday and he will be out the rest of the season.

• Robert Andino (left shoulder strain) is progressing better than expected, with head athletic trainer Richie Bancells reporting to Showalter that the infielder is ahead of schedule. The plan right now is for Andino to head to extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla., when the team leaves for its road trip on Sunday night.

• Brian Matusz tossed eight innings for Triple-A Norfolk Wednesday night, allowing one run -- a solo homer -- on three hits. Matusz struck out five and didn't issue a walk.
