Kim, who's been out since July 10 with a right hamstring strain, completed his second rehab game at Double-A Bowie on Monday night. After going 0-for-3 as the designated hitter in Sunday's game, Kim played left field and went 2-for-4 with a home run Monday.
Before the Orioles' game Monday, manager Buck Showalter said he was hopeful Kim would be ready to return Tuesday. The Orioles have been playing with a thin outfield the past five games with Rickard and Kim injured.
