Nolan Reimold has left the Orioles in New York and returned to Baltimore to see team doctors regarding a tingling sensation in his fingertips, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com.
Reimold recently missed time with a neck injury and the Orioles fear the two issues may be connected, with manager Buck Showalter telling Kubatko that “there could be something compressing against a nerve, like you’d get with a spasm.”
For now Reimold will avoid the disabled list and the Orioles will play with a 24-man roster. It’s another tough break for Reimold, who was finally getting back on track after two injury wrecked seasons by hitting .313 with five homers and a .960 OPS through 16 games.
MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports that ESPN broadcaster Aaron Boone interviewed for the Yankees’ manager job today. No word as to whether he hit a big home run.
Boone, an ESPN analyst, obviously has some history with the Yankees, but he has no coaching experience at any level. Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote earlier this week of Boone that the Yankees “are intrigued if his charisma and passion can compensate for inexperience.” I’d say the answer to that question, whenever asked and in whatever context, is always “no,” but I suppose there’s a first time for everything.
So far the Yankees have interviewed Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge and Hensley Meulens. Yesterday Brian Cashman said there was no rush to fill the job, and that the Winter Meetings are not a deadline for the team in doing so.
