Nolan Reimold goes 1-for-3 in first minor league rehab game at Double-A Bowie

Outfielder Nolan Reimold, playing in his first minor league rehab game since going on the disabled list in spring training, went 1-for-3 for Double-A Bowie on Tuesday night.

In his second at-bat, Reimold hit a line-drive single to left field. He also had a flyout to left field and a strikeout. Reimold also played six innings in left field.

Reimold, 30, has played in just 56 major league games over the past two seasons after multiple neck fusion surgeries.

Reimold played in 14 games this spring, hitting .263/.378/.342 with one homer and five RBIs. But he opened the season on the disabled list with further neck problems when he couldn’t play the outfield comfortably and struggled to look up for fly balls.

When the team headed north for Opening Day, Reimold remained in Sarasota, Fla., to rehab the injury, and he has spent the past few weeks playing in extended spring training games.
