Mark Reynolds is "feeling good" as he continues to rehab a strained oblique at the club's Spring Training facility in Sarasota, Fla., manager Buck Showalter said. Reynolds has been taking ground balls and moving around well, and Showalter added that Reynolds is further along in his recovery than Endy Chavez, who is also on the 15-day disabled list and rehabbing in Sarasota with the same injury. Reynolds is eligible to return on Saturday, while Chavez is eligible Thursday.
Taylor Teagarden is expected to seek a second opinion on the back injury that has kept him on the disabled list since Spring Training.
Showalter said he could potentially tinker with the Orioles' rotation following Thursday's off-day. With Jason Hammel dealing with a sore right knee and Wei-Yin Chen still adjusting to pitching on four days' rest, Showalter said he could choose to give his starters extra off days.
Former infielder Josh Bell has been called up to the Arizona Diamondbacks from Triple-A Reno. Bell was acquired by the O's via a trade on July 30, 2009, hit .200 in 79 games in '10 and '11, and was traded to Arizona for a player to be named on April 21.
