''Last night when he got back to the hotel he called Rich and he said that he had some tingling, numbness in his fingers,'' manager Buck Showalter said. ''When your body spasms like that, it's trying to tell you something.'' Reimold, hitting .313 with five homers and 10 RBIs, returned to Baltimore on Tuesday to be examined.

MLB Real Talk: Sport Some Hammel-Toe

Wieters' emergence silences his critics: Special for MASN Sports

Heading into the 2012 season, Matt Wieters has emerged as a leader for the Orioles. Many have argued whether or not he is a bust - despite only having played in the major leagues for less than three full seasons. That being said, he is far from that. So Wieters has not turned into the next Johnny Bench or a Joe Mauer with power. The promise of the night when he debuted is still...
