The rash of odd Spring Training injuries continues, this time in Orioles’ camp.

Jayson Stark of MLB.com reports that Brian Matusz may not make his spring training appearance today after suffering a severe allergic reaction due to peanuts on Sunday night. According to manager Buck Showalter, the 27-year old wound up in the emergency room after the incident. It’s unknown what Matusz ingested that caused the reaction, and it is not expected that he’ll miss more than one scheduled appearance.
