However, Showalter said the club is also considering sending him to Sarasota, Fla., when Triple-A Norfolk's season ends to keep Wada fresh in case he is needed in Baltimore.

San Francisco Giants are checking out Masahiro Tanaka.  From CSNBayArea.com:

The club's scouting department is being mobilized like never before, according to sources. Even Pat Burrell has a plane ticket to Tokyo as the Giants get as many eyes as possible on Masahiro Tanaka, the 24-year-old right-hander who throws in the upper 90s, dazzled for Japan in the World Baseball Classic and is expected to be posted by the Rakuten Golden Eagles in a few months. (He's 18-0 with a 1.15 ERA this season.)
