Nolan Reimold's mysterious injury

Apr 17, 2012; Chicago, IL, USA; Baltimore Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold hits a two-run home run during the sixth inning against the Chicago White Sox at US Cellular Field.

I was hopping around the internet today looking for news articles for Bird Droppings and came across Eduardo Encina's recent article about Nolan Reimold's injury. After getting off to a great start to the season, Reimold has been on the disabled list since the end of April, diagnosed with a bulging disc. From Encina's article:

An MRI showed that the disk has shrunen and the inflammation is gone – the good news – but the club now has no reason why Reimold is still experiencing spots of tingling in his left arm and hasn’t been able to regain his strength.

So Reimold – who has spent his DL time in and out of doctors offices – will now see a neurosurgeon to see if his problems are nerve-related. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he expected to receive the neurosurgeon’s findings Monday.

Because Reimold was transferred to the 60-day disabled list he isn't eligible to play for two more weeks, but at this point baseball has to take a back seat as Reimold and the Orioles just try to figure out what he has to do to feel normal again.

As well as the Orioles have been playing, we all know that they'd be in much better shape with Reimold in left field. But moving forward it seems the Orioles will have to plan for the rest of the season without him, and if he does come back it'll be a bonus.
