• Longtime Orioles usher Charlie Zill passed away over the weekend after a battle with lung cancer and the club issued the following statement: "We are saddened to learn of Charlie Zill's passing. Since 1997, Charlie was a fixture at Oriole Park, entertaining millions of fans during the seventh inning stretch as his "Zillbilly" character. Over the last several years his determination and positive attitude served as an inspiration for so many as he continued to work in spite of his illness. He will be deeply missed, and we extend our condolences to his family."
• Tsuyoshi Wada (Tommy John surgery) pitched five innings in extended spring camp on Monday and will pitch again Saturday.
