Worth noting

• Catcher Matt Wieters felt good Saturday after he tested his elbow for the first time in three weeks with 25 throws on Friday.

• Right-handed pitcher Luis Ayala opted out of his contract on Saturday, leaving Double-A Bowie.

• Outfielder Nolan Reimold (neck) continues to play in extended spring games, and Showalter said Orioles vice president Brady Anderson spoke with Reimold on Friday night.

"Said it's the best he's felt in a long, long time," Showalter said. "Really encouraging."

• The Orioles will adjust their starting rotation following Monday's off-day, factoring in how Chris Tillman feels after Saturday's outing.
