Worth noting

• Dylan Bundy, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, will take a big step forward in his next bullpen session and throw breaking balls. Bundy has been limited to just changeups and fastballs as he continues to get his elbow strength back.

Troy Patton was scheduled to pitch the end of an inning Tuesday night for Norfolk and then start a clean inning as the lefty works his way back. Patton is slated to come off the restricted list on April 30.

• Showalter said the team could stay with 13 pitchers on its roster and a three-man bench, particularly when Machado returns.
