Orioles Notebook: Reimold awaits next step

BALTIMORE - Nolan Reimold waits, unsure of how the coming days will unfold and not yet knowing when he'll be able to play again.

Reimold, who hasn't played since April 30 because of a herniated disk that has caused neck problems and numbness in his fingers, sits on a .313 average, five homers and 10 RBIs - a hot start that was one of the keys to the Baltimore Orioles' success.

His health is his greatest concern, however.

"I feel all right," Reimold said. "There's nothing much I can do, just wait and let it get better and see what the next step is for treating it."

PHILLIPS CALLED UP: The Orioles adjusted their bullpen Tuesday when they called up left-hander Zach Phillips from Class AAA Norfolk and sent righty Jason Berken back to the Tides.

Phillips, 25, had pitched to a 4.15 ERA in nine appearances with Norfolk this season.

ORGANIZATIONAL HONORS: Right-hander Dylan Bundy has been named the Orioles' minor league Pitcher of the Month and outfielder Ronnie Welty earned Player of the month for April.

Bundy allowed three baserunners while striking out 25 and walking two in 17 innings with Class A Delmarva. Welty batted .390 with 11 doubles, three triples, three homers, 16 runs scored and 19 RBIs with Class A Frederick and Class AA Bowie.

BRITTON UPDATE: Left-hander Zach Britton, who has been on the disabled list since March 26 with a left shoulder injury, is set for his next step toward returning to action.

Britton is scheduled to start an extended spring game Thursday, when he'll throw 45 pitches.
