Reimold placed on disabled list
BALTIMORE - Nolan Reimold, a former Bowling Green Falcon, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday by the Baltimore Orioles.
Reimold, who has been limited to 56 games over the past two seasons because of multiple neck fusion surgeries, still can't play the outfield comfortably and has struggled to look up for fly balls, Orioles' manager Buck Showalter said.
He played in 14 spring training games, hitting .263 (10-for-38) with one home run and five RBI.
"We're just trying to get him all the way healthy," Showalter said. "Hopefully, we'll give him a little more time. … The two times he tried (to play the outfield), looking up bothered him some. It didn't bother him to hit too much. He could get sore. Obviously, you need to look up to play the outfield."
Reimold has played in 286 games in five Major League seasons, hitting .252 with 41 home runs, 42 doubles, and 126 RBI.
