Left fielder Nolan Reimold, who hasn't played since April 30 because of a neck injury that required the removal of a bulging disk June 25, is progressing to the point that he could be released from his supervised rehab program in two weeks. And that means he could go into the offseason and work out the way he normally would.
“He's got mostly all of his strength back. That's going well,” Showalter said. “He's got X percentage, I'm not gonna give it out publicly, but his strength is about X percent back, which is well above average, so he is getting there. … That would be a big step if we can get through these two weeks.”
Reimold had hoped in June that he would be able to return this season, but it never seemed realistic. Now it looks like he could be OK for the start of next spring training.
