DETROIT -- The Orioles placed rookie outfielder Jeffrey Hammonds on the 15-day disabled list yesterday after Los Angeles back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins confirmed that he is suffering from a herniated disk in his neck.Hammonds has been hampered throughout the season with shoulder and upper back soreness, which Orioles orthopedist Dr. Charles Silberstein traced to a nerve irritation caused by a bulging disk. Watkins, who is one of the most respected back specialists in sports medicine, confirmed that diagnosis after putting Hammonds through a series of tests yesterday at Centinela Hospital in Inglewood, Calif.

The Orioles' roster will be shuffling before they open the second half of the season tonight in Texas, and all signs point to left fielder Nolan Reimold heading to the 15-day disabled list . Reimold was not with the team for its workout in Texas on Thursday. And Reimold's injury apparently has nothing to do with the lingering right hamstring injury that put him on the DL for more than seven weeks this season, but is a reoccurrence of last year's neck pain that forced him to miss all but 16 games of a promising 2012 campaign.

For now, all Messiah junior Jeremy Myers can do is watch.It's something new to him, he's been wrestling since he was 8 and had never missed a match.The pain in his back has been with him off and on for most of his wrestling years. It didn't stop him from winning a high school state title in 1992 for the North Carroll Panthers, or keep him from going 66-12 in his first two years at Messiah.Myers was 11-1 early this season at 126 pounds when December came and the pain finally got to be too much.

NEW YORK - The Orioles suddenly find themselves with a logjam at second base after they reactivated Robert Andino from the disabled list on Tuesday. Andino, the starter for most of the season, now will compete with Omar Quintanilla for time at the position. And that leaves Ryan Flaherty in limbo. Quintanilla, who got the start at second base Tuesday, has been red hot since joining the club in Andino's absence. In his first 10 games with the Orioles, he batted .429, and he delivered a two-run single with two outs in Tuesday's second inning.

Cal Ripken's summer of discomfort won't become his winter of surgery.The Orioles third baseman said yesterday that he has decided against undergoing back surgery to alleviate a herniated disk that caused him two months of sometimes excruciating discomfort last season.Nerve damage that at times caused him so much pain that he found it impossible to sit on a bench during games or to gain meaningful sleep for stretches of days has eased, Ripken said. Atrophied muscles in his left leg have begun to recover and his range of motion is near normal.

That still is a possibility, but he would rather try to get through the rest of the season."It's been there for a while," Sutcliffe said. "Surgery would end it [the season]. I've pitched on it this long, so I'm going to finish the year.

For most of last night, the crowd at Broadneck's Lawrence E. Knight Stadium held its breath and dared to believe that their Crystal Palace USA soccer club could hold its own against the New York Red Bulls in their U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal meeting. Their faith was rewarded and then some, as Crystal Palace, the area's outdoor professional soccer team, pulled off the 2-0 upset. Andrew Marshall, an Ellicott City native, scored in the 16th minute off a header from a corner kick, beating New York goalkeeper Zack Thornton, who starred at John Carroll and Loyola College.

In his first comments since going on the seven-day disabled list with concussion symptoms, second baseman Brian Roberts said his latest health issues are "certainly concerning" and casted doubt that he'll be able to return to the Orioles' lineup this week. "It's not life and death, but when it comes to baseball right now, today it's not great," said Roberts, who missed the final six games of last season with a concussion, the symptoms lingering well into the offseason. "From talking to some doctors that deal with concussions a lot, I think we can get our arms around it and I think that we can fix the problem.

As it turns out, Brian Roberts ' reluctance to steal bases wasn't a result of concern over his back. It was because of a sore right hamstring. A day after stealing third base in the first inning against the Boston Red Sox — his second stolen base of the season and first since April 6, a span of 18 games — Roberts revealed Friday that he has been dealing with hamstring discomfort since the season began. "I wanted to be on the field, and I knew if I was trying to run recklessly, I probably wouldn't have been able to stay in the lineup," Roberts said.

As the Orioles tried to figure out their convoluted pitching situation, they were faced with another roster challenge when leadoff hitter and second baseman Brian Roberts was taken to a local hospital Friday night to have testing done on his stomach. Roberts, who has been one of the biggest reasons for the Orioles' 5-1 start with a .280 average and a team-leading two homers and eight RBIs, was scratched about 20 minutes before Friday's originally scheduled first pitch in the series opener against the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards.

Confident that he will be part of the Orioles' rotation to start the season, Jake Arrieta is using his spring starts to work on specific things. In the Orioles' 11-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins today, Arrieta focused on being aggressive early in counts. That resulted in several quick groundball outs and a solid and efficient three-inning outing in which he allowed one run on three hits and no walks while striking out two. "Breaking balls were a lot better today, a little bit more crisp," said Arrieta.

It was right about this time last year that Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts felt a twinge in his lower back. Not a big deal, or so he thought. Just a back spasm or maybe a kidney stone. There was still a month to go before the start of full squad workouts, so there was little reason for concern that the problem would impact the season. Roberts was wrong, of course. Everybody knows that now. He had suffered a herniated disk in his lower spine and that would limit him to just 59 games and — he said at FanFest Saturday — left him wondering if it might cut short his career while he was still very much in his prime.

It was a rare moment two seasons ago at Redskin Park when mercurial wide receiver Michael Westbrook suddenly wanted to talk about playing football."I want to go down as one of the greatest receivers of all time," said Westbrook, a few days after catching seven passes for 126 yards in a 19-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. "I know I have a long ways to go, but I want to dedicate myself to that goal."That was one of the last times the mostly silent Westbrook would reveal some of his innermost feelings before he went down last Sunday with a career-threatening herniated disk between the third and fourth vertebrae in his neck.

After six days of not playing and not talking to the media, second baseman Brian Roberts met with reporters in manager Buck Showalter 's office following Sunday's season finale and said he has been dealing with concussionlike symptoms that occurred after he hit himself in the helmet with a bat. "I don't know 100 percent sure, but it was Monday night. In frustration [after a strikeout], I whacked myself on the head with my bat in the ninth. I had my helmet on," Roberts said. "It's something I've done a million times, but I still can't tell you for sure if that was it. But that's the only thing that I can point to because that night and the next morning, I just didn't feel good.

Brian Roberts , who hasn't played since Monday because of headaches, was held out of both ends of Friday's doubleheader. The Orioles second baseman has missed four straight games and has played in just 59 this season because of various injuries and ailments, including a large chunk of the season because of a herniated disk in his back. "[He's] about the same, not the improvement we had hoped to see," manager Buck Showalter said about Roberts. "A day-to-day thing with him. " Roberts ran before batting practice under the watchful eye of head athletic trainer Richie Bancells , but he wasn't at full strength.
