Tsuyoshi Wada BAL DL                     From CSNBaltimore's Rich Dubroff: [Wada's] next step, Showalter says, is to pitch five innings in extended spring, and that could come on either Sunday or Monday. If he completes that successfully and feels strong on his next work day, then the Orioles could talk about sending him on a rehab assignment in early May. "He's had no setbacks yet, so that's really good to see," Showalter said. "I like the way he's progressing and presenting himself as an option. That’s encouraging." (CSNBaltimore 4/23/2013)
