The Orioles signed Nolan Reimold to a one-year contract on Friday, avoiding arbitration. The 29-year-old outfielder, who didn’t play after April 30 due to a herniated disc in his neck, signed for $1 million, more than double what he earned in 2012 when he appeared in just 16 games.

Reimold hit .313 with five home runs and 13 RBIs last season.

The Orioles still have eight players eligible for arbitration: Matt Wieters, Jason Hammel, Chris Davis, Brian Matusz, Troy Patton, Darren O’Day and Tommy Hunter.

NOTES:

-Miguel Gonzalez has been asked to play for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic, but is unsure about whether he’ll participate.

-Former Oriole third baseman Josh Bell signed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox.
