Orioles shut down Wada's rehab assignment

Tsuyoshi Wada, who was on the disabled list attempting to rebound from some left elbow soreness which limited his spring, has had his rehab assignment shut down.

He will return to Baltimore to meet with doctors and there is no timetable for his return to a game.

Wada allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings Thursday in his first rehab game for the Triple-A Norfolk Tides. Afterward he admitted he had been dealing with neck stiffness after sleeping poorly at a hotel. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he wasn’t sure if the neck problem was associated with the poor outing, but that the club was considering suspending Wada’s rehab assignment.

If it isn’t suspended due to injury, a player has 30 days on rehab before he must re-join the big-league club. Now it looks as if that has rehab been suspended.
