Reimold to go on paternity leave next week
O's outfielder will miss series against Twins in Minnesota
BALTIMORE -- Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold will go on paternity leave on Monday and miss the three-game series against the Twins in Minnesota.
The O's can add any player during the time he is away, not just a position player. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said one option is second baseman Jonathan Schoop, who will continue his rehab on Thursday with Class A Advanced Frederick. Schoop's rehab assignment ends after Friday's game, but he could be optioned or agree to extend it another five days. He's been working his way back from a right knee injury suffered in mid-April.
Reimold entered Wednesday's game hitting .257 with a .366 on-base percentage in 15 games.
