Diamondbacks claim Nolan Reimold off waivers from Blue Jays

3 Comments

Nolan Reimold has been claimed off waivers for the second time in a month, going from the Orioles to the Blue Jays and now to the Diamondbacks.

Reimold was once a top-100 prospect and had a very nice rookie season as a 25-year-old in 2009, but his career has repeatedly been derailed by injuries and since then he’s hit a combined .233 with a .721 OPS in just 204 games.

At age 30 the first baseman/corner outfielder now likely fits best as a platoon player versus left-handed pitching.
