Worth noting

• Kevin Gausman pitched two innings for Class A Short-Season Aberdeen on Wednesday. The pitcher allowed one hit and an unearned run in a 9-5 loss to Staten Island. The righty struck out one and walked one. He is a candidate to start for the Orioles on Sunday.

• With his 26th home run of the season on Tuesday, Nelson Cruz tied Rafael Palmeiro for third most home runs in Baltimore history before the All-Star break. Chris Davis set the record with 37 last year. Cruz is also tied with Jose Abreu and Edwin Encarnacion for the Major League home run lead after Encarnacion homered on Wednesday.

• Orioles pitcher Suk-Min Yoon had an injection to treat imflammation in his right shoulder on Wednesday. He will be re-evaluated in the coming days.
