Tidbits

• Nolan Reimold is feeling better at extended spring training, and although he's not participating in baseball activities, the Orioles are encouraged that he can perhaps avoid a third epidural. Most of his pain has gone away, and he's simply dealing with a few lingering spots in his left arm/shoulder.

• Steve Tolleson made his first Major League start in left field on Friday night. He had previously played just one inning of left at the big league level, as a member of the Athletics.

• Reliever Matt Lindstrom (torn ligament in his right middle finger) has been throwing off flat ground and is close to pitching off a mound.

• Shortstop J.J. Hardy won the Fan Vote for the team's bobblehead night on Sept. 30, besting teammate Robert Andino. Hardy has had two bobblehead nights -- one with Milwaukee and the other in the Minor Leagues -- although his favorite is an unofficial one his younger sister, Jessica, made for him.
