Nolan Reimold is hurt again

Nolan Reimold was expected to play a significant role for the Blue Jays amid the injuries to Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind, but now he’s headed back to the disabled list with a left calf strain.

Reimold suffered the injury while running the bases during last night’s game. The 30-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Orioles earlier this month and went 4-for-12 (.333) with three doubles and three RBI over his first four games with Toronto.

Reimold showed some promise early on in his career, but a pair of neck surgeries limited him to just 56 games between 2012-2013. He continues to have some pretty rotten luck on the health front.
