Outfielder Nolan Reimold continued to struggle in his rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie as he works to return to the Orioles from a right hamstring injury.
The 29-year-old went 0-for-2 with a walk in the first game of the Baysox’s doubleheader at Richmond on Tuesday. He was not in the lineup for the nightcap.
In eight games at Bowie, Reimold is 2-for-27 with three RBIs, three walks and 11 strikeouts. He’s struck out at least once in seven of the eight rehab games.
The Orioles placed Reimold on the disabled list May 18 retroactive to May 12, and he hasn’t played since May 11 against Minnesota. In 31 games, he was batting .188 with four home runs, nine RBI, 30 strikeouts and 10 walks.
Reimold missed all but 16 games last season with a neck injury, and the former second-round draft pick has averaged 55 games in five seasons for the Orioles.
