The Orioles have agreed on a one-year contract with oft-injured outfielder Nolan Reimold. Reimold, who has been limited to 56 games the last two years, signed for a reported $1.025 million plus incentives.
Reimold has had two neck surgeries since June 2012, and there had been speculation that the team might non-tender him, but the Orioles have avoided arbitration with him for the second straight season.
After playing in just 16 games in 2012, Reimold was given a raise from $490,500 to $1 million. The Orioles admire Reimold’s determination to come back from his injuries, and with Nate McLouth a free agent, they don’t have another left fielder.
In 2013, Reimold batted .195 with five home runs and 12 RBIs in 40 games. He underwent his second surgery in July.
The news of Reimold’s re-signing was first reported by The Baltimore Sun.
