Howard County Executive Ken Ulman was recuperating from outpatient back surgery performed Wednesday at University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore to remove a protruding portion of a disc that has been causing him pain for nearly a year. Kevin Enright, Ulman's spokesman, said the surgery was successful, and the 35-year-old executive was able to walk the same day. County government is closed this week, with unpaid furloughs, and Ulman was not planning to be out of action long, according to Enright.

Orioles have made official what we all expected for more than a week now. Lefty Tsuyoshi Wada will have season-ending, Tommy John surgery on May 11 in Los Angeles. “I am very disappointed," Wada said. "I will work hard for the rehab and try to recover to be as strong as I can to help the team win. I appreciate the support from the  Orioles through this process.”  Dr. Lewis Yocum, who took bone spurs out of the Japanese lefty's elbow in 2007, will perform the surgery.

Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold underwent successful surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital Monday morning to remove a herniated disk that was placing pressure on a nerve in his neck, the team announced.  The procedure, called a discectomy , was performed locally by neurosurgeon Dr. Ziya Gokaslan, a nationally renowned spine specialist. Reimold said Friday the surgery was similar to the one Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had last year. Doctors hope the surgery can alleviate the tingling Reimold felt in his left arm, which caused him to be out of action since April 30. Reimold previously received two epidural injections, which calmed the swelling in the disk and gradually took away the pain, but there were still recurrent spots of tingling in his arm and he had trouble regaining strength in it. Reimold now is resting comforably, the team said.

 Maryland has joined with 44 other states and the federal government in a $33.5 million fraud settlement case with the maker of an anti-inflammatory drug used after cataract surgery, according to Maryland Attorney General Doug F. Gansler's office. The Maryland Medicaid Program will receive $9,796.51 in the case that accuses ISTA Pharmaceuticals Inc. of marketing the drug Xibrom for uses not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The drugmaker is also accused of paying doctors kickbacks to write presciptions for the medication.

Injured Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is still holding out hope for better news, but one of the team's top offseason acquisitions might need Tommy John surgery to repair his left elbow, he told reporters through his interpreter before Thursday's game. Wada has already seen Orioles team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens but is planning to fly to Los Angeles this weekend to see Dr. Lewis Yocum for a second opinion on his elbow. Yocum knows Wada well. He performed his physical before the Orioles signed Wada to a two-year, $8.14 million contract and also removed chips from his elbow in 2007.

The Orioles received the bad news Wednesday afternoon that they had been hoping wouldn't come: Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy will undergo Tommy John ligament-replacement surgery on his right elbow Thursday morning and will be lost for at least a year. Bundy, the 20-year-old phenom who was widely considered baseball's best minor league arm coming into 2013, has not pitched since spring training because of an injury that was originally diagnosed as forearm discomfort and later called a flexor mass strain.

After talking to former Ravens left tackle Jonathan Ogden about the turf toe injury that contributed to the future Hall of Famer's retiring after the 2007 season, left guard Ben Grubbs was understandably concerned about the strained ligaments in a toe on his right foot that had shelved him for six consecutive games. Grubbs, who had undergone surgery on the same ankle twice in the past three years, eagerly sought a medical opinion from renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews. “We wanted to make sure that [surgery]

Nolan Reimold met with doctors again Tuesday afternoon to discuss his options on alleviating his neck and back problems. But nothing was determined by early Tuesday evening. One possibility, manager Buck Showalter conceded Tuesday, would be surgery, which would surely end the left fielder's season. “I don't want to throw dirt over Nolan right now. Let's let this thing run its course. I've gotten some positives, some best-case scenario ideas, too. I don't think we're ready to go there yet,” Showalter said.

It's a humid, sticky Friday here at Camden Yards, and the Orioles are hosting the first of a three-game Beltway series against the Nationals. In today's pregame, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said a decision has been made on the next step with outfielder Nolan Reimold, who hasn't played since April 30. Showalter wouldn't say what that decision is, but it appears from the way Showalter was talking that Reimold will have surgery. Showalter, however, wouldn't concede that Reimold's season is over.
