BALTIMORE -- Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold (strained right hamstring) stayed in Baltimore during the team's recent road trip to continue his rehab.

Manager Buck Showalter said it made the most sense for Reimold to see a local physical therapist.

"When they were on the road, I went up to Johns Hopkins and was rehabbing up there," Reimold said. "And then I came in here [Oriole Park at Camden Yards] and did my workout."

Reimold said Wednesday that he's continued to rehab, work out and get "active rest."

"Strengthening and getting the flexibility back in my hammy -- that's the program for now," Reimold said.

Reimold is unsure of the timetable for his return, but he said that Showalter asked him not to return until he's 100 percent. In Reimold's estimation, that shouldn't be too much longer. At this point, he's running but hasn't let loose in a full pain-free sprint.

"It's calmed down a lot. I've been running up to that certain point. And I've been doing all the exercises I'm supposed to do," Reimold said. "The threshold went up to where I can run without feeling it, so just keep working toward and moving in that direction."
