Ohlman to miss spring with injury

Ohlman to miss spring with injury

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles catcher Michael Ohlman has a right shoulder injury that will prevent him from participating in the rest of Spring Training.

Manager Buck Showalter said an MRI taken on Ohlman's right shoulder on Wednesday afternoon showed significant damage, and Ohlman will get a second opinion before deciding a course of action, which would be either surgery or rehab.

The 21-year-old Ohlman was on his way to the mall after a workout at the team's spring facility when he was cut off by another vehicle that didn't see him, flipping his truck in the process. Ohlman, who was wearing his seat belt, remained conscious and was able to crawl out of the truck, which landed on its roof.

A local product selected by the Orioles in the 11th round of the 2009 Draft, Ohlman was called over to big league camp (without an official invite) because of the team's wealth of pitchers and catcher Ronny Paulino's failure to report.
