'Two minutes with...' O's first baseman Davis
By Brittany Ghiroli / MLB.com
SARASOTA, Fla. -- The "Two Minutes with ..." spring series continues with Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who is coming off a 53-home run season. Davis was the American League's starting first baseman in the 2013 All-Star Game, won a Silver Slugger Award and was a Gold Glove Award finalist.
Favorite food: Mexican food. From Texas.
Favorite movie: Forrest Gump. It's a feel-good story. Saw it a long time ago, will still sit and watch it when it's on.
Special talent: I'm a good reader. See, you're surprised. I read a lot. The last book I read was Francis Chan's, "Crazy Love." As you can see right now [on my iPad], I'm reading "The Blessed Life" [by Robert Morris].
If I wasn't a baseball player I'd be ... Probably a youth pastor.
Favorite offseason place: Home [just north of Dallas]. Just being at home with my family. I hunt a lot so anywhere in the woods, in nature.
Prized possession: My Bible. It's what I carry with me everywhere.
Z. Britton fine after being struck on right wrist
SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles pitcher Zach Britton said he's fine after being hit in the right wrist by Minnesota's Josh Willingham during Wednesday night's 11-5 win.
"It's nothing," said Britton, who had about 30 seconds of anxiety when he lost feeling in his glove hand, but it went away.
The left-hander didn't have a bruise on Thursday morning and there were no X-rays taken on the area.
Britton threw two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out two, in his second spring game. The 25-year-old is competing for a rotation spot and has allowed one run over four innings.
His older brother, Buck, also in camp, forgot his jersey and there was a lot of confusion as to who No. 90 was. Britton joked that it got more attention than his performance on the mound.
