Nolan Reimold to miss time with bulging disk

May 01, 2012 | WNST Staff

Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold left the team in New York Monday night, as he returned to Baltimore with a tingling sensation in his fingers.

MASN reported today that upon meeting with doctors Tuesday, Reimold found out that he has a bulging disk in his back, causing the discomfort.

Reimold, who went 0-for-4 Monday night in the Orioles’ 2-1 loss to the Yankees, is currently hitting .310 with five home runs and 10 RBIs.

He has played off and on over the last several weeks as he has battled neck and back spasms as well, but has played through the injury.

Manager Buck Showalter said at this time, Reimold will not be placed on the DL and has been given anti-inflammatory medicine to reduce the swelling.

Endy Chavez led off and started in left field for Reimold Tuesday night against the Yankees.
