Healing Freel

Utilityman Ryan Freel has had several obstacles heaped in his path to recovery from a head injury, but he may finally see a promotion back to the parent club by the end of the week.

The Orioles plan for Freel to play in both ends of a double-header Wednesday night and to play another game on Thursday before he returns. But after that, the Orioles will likely summon him back to play left field versus left-handed pitchers.

“I think he just wants to play,” said manager Dave Trembley. “It’s been one thing after another with the rain [and] he got held back because he didn’t get medical clearance. He’s missed so much time and missed so many at-bats he’s playing catchup. I hope it works out for him.”
