    Orioles' Bud Norris throws four innings in rain-shortened start
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:12 pm ET) Orioles starting pitcher Bud Norris threw four innings Friday against the Rays before the game was called due to rain. He allowed three runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out one. He gave up a solo home run to Rene Rivera in the third inning.

    After throwing 59 pitches, Norris headed to the indoor batting cage to continue pitching.

    "I think I did 20-25 more down in the cage to simulate another inning, a couple more hitters. Just wanted to make sure we got to the pitch count again," he said, per MASNsports.com. "It's been an interesting camp for me, but I got my work in today. Threw a few more sliders. They were breaking pretty good, but I wasn't throwing enough strikes with them. Battling counts, getting behind in counts, which is kind of lazy, but I'm making the right strides and still feel pretty good and ready to get this thing going."

    Twins' May struggles Friday in perhaps last bid to make rotation
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:05 pm ET) Twins starting pitcher Trevor May took the mound Friday against the Pirates in perhaps his last bid to make the starting rotation. Unfortunately, it wasn't a banner outing for the May.

    The right-handed hurler allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out two. 

    May (0-1) allowed a solo home run to Gregory Polanco in the first inning and a solo home run to Tony Sanchez in the fourth inning. May has a 4.22 ERA through three spring outings (two starts).

    "He gave up some hard-hit balls," manager Paul Molitor said, per the Pioneer Press. "Overall he got dinged up a little bit. Probably wasn't his best day. Overall, no complaints with that young man this spring."
