Nolan Reimold Is Injured Again

Nolan Reimold“But in this world nothing can be said to be certain, expect death, taxes and Nolan Reimold on the disabled list.”
- Benjamin Franklin

The Orioles announced the left fielder/designated hitter Nolan Reimold has been placed on the 15 day disabled list with a right hamstring strain. The 29 year old is hitting just .188/.257/.327 in 113 plate appearances this season and has struck out 30 times and walked just 10. Reimold hasn’t played in a week while Chris Dickerson, Steve Pearce and Nate McLouth continued to steal his playing time.

The oft-injured outfielder hasn’t played in more than 100 games since 2009 and continues to get further and further away from those awesome first couple months in the big leagues he had that made many run out and buy his jersey.

In addition to Reimold being place on the DL, the O’s activated Jair Jurrjens for today’s start, recalled Jake Arrieta for some bullpen help and optioned Alex Burnett.

Fun times.

    This guy is becoming a bigger joke than Brian Roberts.

    At least Roberts has a pedigree of being an All Star and at one time, one of the best lead off hitters in baseball.

    Reimold’s pedigree is 3 months of combined decent baseball over the last 4 years.

    He’s a joke.

    Perhaps Nolan has the same DNA as Tiger Woods. Maybe the key to a successful campaign for Nolan is to re-engage him with his stripper friend? Seriously I think the O’s are brilliantly manipulating the system, Nolan is not playing well and out of options, so they put him of hold for 15 days whille they audition his replacement. Are Nolan’s days in orange and black dependent on how Dickerson performs in the next two weeks?
