Z. Britton fine after being struck on right wrist
By Brittany Ghiroli / MLB.com
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.
'Two minutes with...' O's first baseman Davis
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 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.
