More specifically, Showalter knows just what his team is capable of once it gets healthy.
"I'm hoping this is the team we have the rest of the year, except I'm hoping we get some injured people back," Showalter said. "I'm hoping Robert [Andino] isn't more than a couple of weeks away. I'm hoping Jason Hammel can make it by September 1. And Brian [Roberts], if we get those three guys back, that's about as good an addition as we can make potentially in a trade."
In the meantime, the Orioles will have to make due with the team they do have come Sunday against the Indians, as they go for the series win at Progressive Field.
Baltimore will send Zach Britton to the hill, hoping the left-hander has fixed the control issues that plagued him in his start on Tuesday against the Twins. Walking a career-high six in his season debut, the left-hander tossed four innings and surrendered four runs on six hits and received a no-decision.
"It was more overthinking it," Britton said of the 100-pitch outing in which he threw 54 strikes. "I knew I was up in the [zone] first couple innings. Really not being confident and driving the ball down, so I was tentative with that and not wanting to leave the ball up. And that can kind of get into you [mentally] a little bit."
Meanwhile, Josh Tomlin will get the start for Cleveland, looking to get back on track after absorbing a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.
Surrendering three runs in the first inning, Tomlin still managed to go 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits in a 4-2 loss.
"It's tough putting the guys in a hole like that," Tomlin said after the start. "It's tough to battle back from that. I've got to do a better job of limiting the damage right there."
On a roll in his last five home starts, Tomlin is 2-1 with a 3.61 ERA after starting the season 0-2 with a 7.45 ERA in his first two tilts at home.
Orioles: Quintanilla added to active roster
Infielder Omar Quintanilla, acquired on Friday from the Mets in exchange for cash considerations, was added to the Orioles' 25-man roster on Saturday. To make room for him, the club designated outfielder Steven Pearce for assignment.
The 33rd overall selection in the 2003 First-Year Player Draft by Oakland, Quintanilla spent five years in the big leagues with the Rockies before appearing in 11 games for the Rangers last season and 29 for the Mets this year.
Indians: Hernandez set to return to team
Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona, has successfully acquired his visa to return to the United States and will join the team in Cleveland on Sunday.
Hernandez will address the media on Sunday morning and throw for the coaching staff before beginning a Minor League assignment.
Major League Baseball announced on Saturday that Hernandez will serve a three-week suspension for engaging in age and identity fraud, allowing him to return to the Indians active roster on Aug. 11. Hernandez was arrested on Jan. 19 outside the United States consulate in Santo Domingo, D.R., while attempting to renew his visa so he could join the Indians for Spring Training.
Indians left-hander Rafael Perez is going to make a rehab appearance at Double-A Akron on Monday, and could return to the team after that.
Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis is batting .359 (14-for-39) with four doubles and five runs scored in nine games since returning from the disabled list.
