Reimold to take it slow with shoulder soreness

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Outfielder Nolan Reimold, who left Friday's game with right shoulder soreness, will be brought along slowly the next few days, although manager Buck Showalter reiterated Saturday the team doesn't believe it's related to Reimold's neck surgery.

"Probably during the regular season, he probably wouldn't have said anything," Showalter said of Reimold, who informed him of the soreness before his second-inning at-bat. "I appreciate him saying something, I don't want it to turn into something else. He knows we got a lot of time down here. I'm not concerned about it, yet."

Orioles catcher Taylor Teagarden (lower back) was feeling slightly better on Saturday morning and left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada threw a 30-pitch bullpen session back in Sarasota at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex.

Showalter said the organization is "really encouraged" with what's going on with Wada, who has thrown three bullpens this week, although he was unsure of the next step. Wada, who is rehabbing from May's Tommy John surgery, could pitch in a simulated game at some point soon.
