Two months ago Nolan Reimold was expected to miss 2-3 days with a bulging disk in his back, but the Orioles outfielder hasn’t played since and the team announced yesterday that he won’t play again until after the All-Star break.

And according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com “manager Buck Showalter hinted at worse news” as the Orioles wait to hear back from a cervical specialist who examined Reimold over the weekend.

Ghiroli reports that a recent MRI exam showed what is now deemed a herniated disk had diminished in size, but Reimold continues to feel pain and tingling.

Injuries derailed Reimold’s career several times before this season, but the 28-year-old former top prospect was hitting .313 with five homers and a .960 OPS in 16 games before being shut down.

    Ugh, had two disc surgeries. It sucks and all this rain and humidity in the Northeast isn’t helping at all.

    I had to read the headline a couple times to understand that Nolan Reimold’s female reproductive system was still intact.
