SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz returned to the mound one day after getting a wart removed from his left middle finger and expects to make his next start.

Matusz had the procedure done in Philadelphia on Friday a day after pitching two scoreless innings in a loss to Minnesota.

The left-hander threw on a back field Saturday.

Baltimore manager Buck Showalter had said on Thursday that he thought Matusz would probably miss a start, but the left-hander said he felt well enough to pitch against the Phillies in Clearwater on Tuesday.

Matusz, 24, noticed the wart late last season, when he was 10-12 with a 4.30 ERA.
