• Injured closer Andrew Bailey was at Fenway Park on Tuesday for the first time since undergoing reconstructive labrum surgery on his right shoulder, and doctors have told him he's expected to make a 100 percent recovery. The surgery is expected to sideline him for about a year.
• Farrell offered his strategy in containing Orioles' slugger Chris Davis, who entered the series with a .304 average, 46 homers and 118 RBIs: "We're planning on our outfielders playing high and deep the way he's been swinging the bat."
• In light of the devastating news regarding Mets ace Matt Harvey and his partially torn UCL in his pitching elbow, Farrell said there's no way to predict those types of injuries and extra attention on pitch-counts may not necessarily be the answer.
"I mean, it's a debatable question," Farrell said. "Just by watching Matt Harvey pitch, you'd never think that he'd be a guy that would be more susceptible to an arm injury, as clean as his arm is and as consistent as his delivery is. I think you're always aware of the progression, the innings increase year over year. Certainly the intensity at the big league level is going to be greater than at the Minor League level.
"But if you go in with the thought of protecting first, you might not get the most out of a given guy."
• Red Sox starters posted a 1.17 ERA over the six-game West Coast road trip. Boston starters entered Tuesday with a 2.76 ERA over its last 12 games.
• The Orioles have won 24 of the last 35 games between the two teams.
