Thome could be back within a week
Orioles designated hitter Jim Thome, who has been on the disabled list since July 31 with a herniated disk in his neck, took five to six at-bats in a simulated game in Sarasota, Fla., on Monday and experienced no pain, setting the stage for him to possibly come back within a week, according to manager Buck Showalter.
