• Troy Patton (right ankle sprain) threw for the first time since his injury Thursday, 60 feet off flat ground, and that was a good sign for Patton, who hadn't picked up a ball previously. But there is still no timetable for his return.

• The Orioles have not been under .500 this season.

• With the postseason races heating up, the Orioles-Yankees series will be featured on "Caught Looking" on NBC Sports Network on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.
