Orioles third baseman (and part-time first baseman and designated hitter) Mark Reynolds is having a nightmarish 2012. And it just got a little worse.

According to Britt Ghiroli of MLB.com, the struggling 28-year-old suffered an oblique injury while making a throw during batting practice Saturday and has been placed on the 15-day disabled list for the first time in his six-year major league career.

Reynolds is batting just .191 with a .661 OPS, two homers and 36 strikeouts in 108 plate appearances this season. He’s started 15 games at the hot corner, nine games at DH and three games at first.

The Orioles acquired him from Arizona in December 2010 for pitchers David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio.

    Look on the bright side, they won’t have to watch him strikeout for a while.
