Reimold to have season-ending surgery
ARLINGTON, Texas — Former Bowling Green Falcon and Baltimore Orioles’ left fielder Nolan Reimold will have season-ending surgery for the second consecutive year.
The 29-year-old is slated to undergo corrective surgery Tuesday at the Florida Spine Institute to fix a spinal fusion procedure performed last June.
The Orioles made the announcement Friday.
Reimold, who was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with nerve inflammation in the cervical spine, will be transferred to the 60-day DL the next time the team needs a 40-man-roster spot.
The news is the latest in a rough two-year stretch for Reimold, who has played in just 56 games since the start of the 2012, despite rehabbing aggressively to be a full-go from Day 1 of this year’s Spring Training.
After making the Opening Day roster this season, Reimold was placed on the disabled list May 18 with a right hamstring strain that nagged him throughout camp. He was activated earlier this month.
Reimold hit .195 in 40 games this season, totaling five home runs and 12 runs batted in.
Newlove has hole-in-one
Joan Newlove recorded a hole-in-one at Stone Ridge Golf Club.
The 54-year-old used a hybrid to ace the 115-yard eighth hole during the Hospital Guild Women Fore Women outing.
Newlove borrowed the club from her cart partner, Annette Haskins.
