TORONTO -- Nolan Reimold will play in his sixth consecutive game for Double-A Bowie on Sunday, as the outfielder works his way back from a right hamstring strain.

The 29-year-old has struggled at Bowie, beginning his rehab assignment by going 1-for-17 with seven strikeouts entering Sunday's contest. But manager Buck Showalter said if he doesn't encounter any setbacks, Reimold could continue his rehab at Triple-A Norfolk as early as this upcoming week.

"He's a little rusty, but he's getting there," Showalter said. "His leg feels good ... [but] he's not ready yet."

Showalter put no timetable on when Reimold could rejoin the Orioles, but figures it could be sometime before the All-Star break.

Reimold is batting .188 with four homers and nine RBIs in 31 games with the Orioles this season.
