Nolan Reimold Claimed by Diamondbacks

 

According to Chris Cotillo, the Arizona Diamondbacks have claimed Nolan Reimold off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays:

 

 

Reimold was designated for assignment a couple days ago when the Blue Jays called up Kevin Pillar. Reimold was removed from the 40 man roster with his demotion and teams were free to pick him up.

His time with the Blue Jays was quite the roller coaster. He played just 4 games when he went to the DL with a calf injury. His return from the injury was quite emphatic. He launched 2 home runs in Houston. He was also responsible for a walk off win in Toronto.

 

Despite this, his time in Toronto has not exactly been stellar:

Year G PA R H 2B HR RBI SB BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+
2014 22 60 3 11 4 2 9 1 6 22 .212 .283 .404 .687 90

Added for his bat from the right side of the plate, Reimold found himself on the outside looking in among Blue Jays outfielders. His missed catch in right field didn’t help things either.

 

In other related news, another former Blue Jay, Jayson Nix was claimed today by the Royals. Nix played for the Blue Jays in 2011. This season, the Royals will be his 3rd team. He also suited up for the Phillies and Pirates.
