The report from MLB.com’s Brittany Ghiroli …
Nolan Reimold was a scratch from Wednesday night’s starting lineup and he will start the season on the disabled list since he’s unable to play the outfield.
Reimold can swing a bat without issue, but the movement required of a major league outfielder remains out of his comfort zone. The former second-round pick has undergone two season-ending neck surgeries in the last two years and is still clearly bothered by whatever those procedures aimed to fix.
Reimold, 30, is a .252/.327/.439 career hitter in 1,056 major league plate appearances.
The Orioles aren’t guessing on a potential activation date. It could be a while.
