Nolan Reimold returns to Orioles lineup four days after being hit in the face

1 Comment

Nolan Reimold was hit in the face by a pitch Friday, but the Orioles outfielder somehow avoided a serious injury and is back in the lineup today.

Alex Cobb of the Rays plunked Reimold in the left cheek, but a chipped tooth is the worst of the damage and Brittany Ghiroli reports that he already got that fixed at the dentist.

So he’s good to go and won’t even be wearing any extra protection on his helmet, which certainly qualifies as “brave” if you’re being generous about word choice.

After an up-and-down past two seasons Reimold is fighting Endy Chavez for playing time in left field.

The Tigers and free agent catcher Austin Romine have agreed to a one-year contract, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports. WFAN’s Sweeny Murti specifies that the deal is for $4.1 million.

Romine, 31, has been in the league for eight seasons, all with the Yankees. Across 1,116 trips to the plate, he has hit .239/.281/.366. However, Romine is well-regarded for his defense and game-calling abilities.

Romine will slot in as the full-time catcher for the rebuilding Tigers. They’ll have Jake Rogers and Grayson Greiner behind him.
