Flaherty could begin rehab assignment soon
BALTIMORE -- After suffering through 36 miserable hours earlier in the week, Ryan Flaherty is nearing the point where he could begin a rehab assignment.

Manager Buck Showalter said Flaherty would "probably stay with the team today, and he could go out on a rehab not before Sunday."

Flaherty has been on the disabled list since Wednesday due to a bacterial infection that caused severe swelling in his tonsils. After enduring a period where it was difficult to even breathe, Flaherty started on antibiotics, which he said have had a significant impact.

On Friday, Flaherty said he felt his energy level was fine, but was still waiting for the swelling to fully subside.

A Rule 5 Draft selection who has taken on a utility role with the O's, Flaherty has hit .205 with four home runs and 11 RBIs in 60 games and 117 at-bats this season.
