Worth noting

• Left-hander Johan Santana came through Monday's two-inning simulated game with positive reports, as did Dylan Bundy, who threw a side session. Third baseman Manny Machado continues to progress, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter listed pool running among his activities.

• Backup catcher Steve Clevenger took balls at third base during pregame batting practice on Tuesday.

Zach Britton's two scoreless innings in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Yankees extended his streak of shutdown frames to six this season.
