Baltimore Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold was taken to a hospital after he was hit in the left side of the head by a fastball from Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb in the first inning of a 3-3, 10-inning tie on Friday. Reimold, batting fifth in the lineup, immediately dropped to the ground and was face-down for several minutes while a hushed crowd watched nervously as Orioles trainers tended him. Also looking on was a visibly upset Cobb, who said in the Rays clubhouse, ''It's probably the worst feeling you can have as a pitcher.'' Reimold eventually walked to a cart, which took him off the field. Cobb pitched three scoreless innings, giving up two hits and two walks in his first start of the spring.

If You Can't Hit, Jorge Arangure Doesn't Care About Your Injuries

Oriole left fielder Nolan Reimold took a fastball to the face in the first inning of today's exhibition game against the Tampa Bay Rays and from all accounts, it was pretty nasty.Three innings later, we learned that IF Ryan Flaherty, the club's Rule 5 pick, took a pitch in the shoulder via Roch Kubatko on Twitter. Jorge Arangure replied to that tweet:Forget, for a moment...

Spring Training: Ed Smith Stadium Guide

I have finally come to terms with the fact that I will not be attending Oriole Spring Training 2012 and I have not been since the inaugural training in Sarasota in 2010. (sigh....)Since I cannot accurately update my Unofficial Guide to Oriole Spring Training, I instead point you to Spring Training Connection's review of Ed Smith Stadium. It is very thorough and a great resource...

Towel takes down David Price

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher David Price has officially taken the lead for strangest non-baseball injury this Spring. The southpaw injured his neck while towel drying his head between innings of his start against the Tigers. Yep, something we all do everyday. If that isn’t odd enough for ya, maybe this will be; it was his third time doing it in a year. “I was drying my head...

Spring Training: The Phils lose 1-0 to the Orioles on a solo home run.

The Phils’ spring training record even up at four-four as they lose 1-0 to the Orioles on a solo home run. In the fourth, Chris Davis breaks up a 0-0 tie with a lead-off solo home run, his first home run of the spring, giving the Orioles a 1-0 lead. That would end up being the only score as neither team would be able to mount up much of an offense. Joe Blanton received a no-decision...

Orioles Defeat Braves, Jai Miller and Opening Day

This afternoon, the Orioles defeated the Atlanta Braves, 2-1, in Grapefruit League action. Jai Miller and Xavier Avery drove in runs late in the game after trailing 1-0; however, the Orioles got another solid pitching performance from the hurlers on the mound. Jason Hammel pitched his first game as Oriole, tossing two scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and walked one. Pitchers...

Jennings Expected to Spark Rays Lineup

There were several additions to the Rays lineup this off-season, but perhaps the most important aspect of the team's re-vamped offense is the fact that left fielder Desmond Jennings will be atop the lineup for a full season. Full story inside...plus the Rays name James Shields the Opening Day starter, injury updates on Evan Longoria, David Price and Luke Scott and Joe Maddon...

Brian Matusz Shines on Saturday & Chris Davis

This afternoon, the Orioles defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater, Fla, 1-0. Once again, the pitching came through strong for Baltimore as they shut out a Philadelphia team with several of their everyday players in the lineup. Brian Matusz was stellar on Saturday, throwing four shutout innings. Obviously, one cannot take a lot from a Spring Training start – especially...

Teammates do not hurt David Price as much as Towels

The Tampa Bay Devil Rays may have hurt star pitch David Price's feelings with this practical joke this morning, but his neck still remembers quite fondly how one towel caused more damage than these words. [Follow me @TravisHouser]

David Price injuring his neck with a towel is the Bad Spring Training Decision of the Day

Freak injuries happen.  For some reason they seem to happen a lot in baseball.  Take for example Yankee reliever David Robertson who may now be out for several weeks after spraining his foot carrying boxes, empty boxes, down some stairs.  He probably could've been more careful, but really, who expects to get hurt carrying empty boxes.  It couldn't have been prevented...

Rays Thank Robert Andino for Game-Winning Hit Against Red Sox With Standing Ovation Before Spring Training At-Bat

Orioles infielder Robert Andino only hit .263 last season, but he still gave the Red Sox fits, especially on the last day of the season. Andino was the guy who delivered the two-out, ninth-inning RBI single in the season finale to cap off a Baltimore rally, allowing the Tampa Bay Rays to then secure the American League wild card moments later. Although the Rays weren't able to...
