In addition to Nick Markakis' herniated disc, there was plenty of injury news coming out of Orioles camp yesterday. We have updates on both Nolan Reimold and Luis Martinez. The Orioles' management of injuries will be key in their run at another year of success in 2013.
According to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com, Reimold has ben playing catch and could return to game action soon.
Showalter said Reimold is feeling better and played catch yesterday with no problems. Could be back in the field soon.

Reimold's return will be good news to the Orioles who are looking for depth at all positions. During spring training, finding the right depth at each spot is important.
Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun says Luis Martinez is now a full go. He had previously been battling an oblique strain.
C Luis Martinez (left oblique strain), who has been reassigned to minor league camp, is now full go. He will see time in big leaugue games.

For Martinez, the opportunity to play in big league games could mean an eventual call up during the season. Martinez has been up and down in his short career. He has also had trouble sticking anywhere. He hopes Baltimore will be his home.
