Tsuyoshi Wada BAL 8/31 DNP                     Latest on Wada via the Baltimore Sun: Over his past six starts, Wada is 4-1 with a 1.43 ERA, but Saturday's outing — in which he allowed five hits and struck out two and walked three — was the first in that span that he pitched on regular rest. "It was good," Showalter said of Wada, who had Tommy John surgery in May 2012. "He threw well. He's come on little by little. That's kind of the par for the course for his surgery. You're going to have some struggles early on. He's gotten more confidence with his fastball. … You don't feel real comfortable throwing the ball in the zone for a while with a little different elbow. I think he's gotten over that now." [Baltimore Sun 9/1/2013]
