Orioles @ Red Sox lineups

*Nolan Reimold –who is on the disabled list with herniated disk — will have to go on a rehab assignment before joining the Orioles manager Buck Showalter said today.  Showalter said the hope is Reimold, who has been feeling better but still experiencing a little tingling in his fingertips, is ready to go around the 14th and can play few games at one of the team’s affiliates. Reimold last played Monday’s game in New York and would be eligible as early as May 16.

I mentioned on yesterday’s pregame show and wrote a note on Brian Roberts’ improved progress. I will reiterate that the expectation is he will go on a rehab assignment very soon. You can read more on that here.

*Ryan Flaherty is making a rare start this afternoon, playing in left field, and the Rule 5 Draft pick –who grew up in Maine rooting for the Red Sox — acknowledged it’ll be a pretty cool moment to out on the field at Fenway Park.

Asked about Flaherty’s start, Showalter quipped:  “You can’t come to Boston for three days and not play a guy named Flaherty.”

Britt,

Do you see any value from Tejada? I cant. Thoughts?

Not sure what to make of it yet. It’s not official, he has to pass his physical and workout down there. I’d like to see how that goes first. Can’t hurt, IMO.
