Reimold improving, but remains out of lineup
BALTIMORE -- Nolan Reimold's neck problems held him out of the Orioles' lineup for the fourth straight game -- and the fifth time in the last six -- but the outfielder appears to be improving.

Reimold's been bothered by neck spasms the last several days and took some swings in the batting cage before batting practice Wednesday afternoon. He's yet to throw, but is hoping everything is finally coming around.

"I think I'm almost ready," Reimold said. "It's getting better. It's getting there. I took some swings in the cage. I just want to get this over with and get back on the field."

Manager Buck Showalter also is optimistic, saying the team wanted to see how Reimold's neck reacted to the work he did before the Wednesday game.

Both Showalter and Reimold said the Orioles are being cautious, but they're hopeful.

"Nolan's getting better, very close," Showalter said. "[He'll] do some activities today and see if we can not have repercussions from it. Then, hopefully [we'll] be able to turn him loose."
