Taylor Teagarden on Wednesday was moved to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Tolleson on the 40-man roster. Teagarden, who was projected to be Baltimore's backup catcher, has been out of action since spring with a lower back injury. Showalter said on Wednesday that Teagarden received a third epidural and feels the best he's felt in some time. The team sent Teagarden home for a few days off, and he is expected back in Sarasota, Fla., within a day or two.
Orioles lefty Zach Britton will throw 45 pitches in an extended spring game on Thursday and remains on his normal recovery plan despite the fluctuations in Baltimore's pitching rotation, Showalter said Wednesday. Britton has been on the disabled list for the duration of the season with a left shoulder impingement. He is also slated to pitch May 15 and 21, which would make him eligible to begin a rehab assignment May 26.
Reimold, currently on the disabled list because of a bulging disc in his cervical spine, has been unable to receive an epidural because he is still recovering from an infection. Showalter said he hopes Reimold will either heal without the epidural or be able to receive it at some point in the next few days.
