Minor leagues For several years, Orioles officials have listed a power-hitting corner outfielder as one of the club's biggest needs. They may choose to shop for one on the free-agent market. But the club also sees hope on the horizon in one of its own draftees, Single-A Frederick outfielder Nolan Reimold. Based on his size and performance in his professional debut last season, Reimold has been described as one of the steals of the 2005 draft. He started this season looking like a future star, but a recent slump has depressed his numbers and tempered expectations somewhat.

Outfielder Nolan Reimold, whom the Toronto Blue Jays claimed off waivers from the Orioles in July, was designated for assignment Tuesday, the Blue Jays announced. Reimold, 30, had two homers and nine RBIs while batting .212 with a .283 on-base percentage in 60 plate appearances for the Blue Jays. A second-round pick by the Orioles in 2005, Reimold has been attempting to come back from neck surgeries the past two seasons. He was claimed by the Blue Jays off waivers July 6 and started off hot, with four hits in 12 at-bats before going on the 15-day disabled list with a calf strain.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Nolan Reimold walked into the visiting clubhouse at City of Palms Park about three hours before yesterday's game and searched for an open locker. He was happy to be preparing for a major league spring training game but couldn't help feeling that this is what he should have been doing all along this spring. Reimold, a 24-year-old outfielder whom Baseball America ranks as the Orioles' fourth-best prospect and second-best position prospect behind Matt Wieters, admitted that he was surprised and disappointed that he didn't get an invitation to major league spring training.

TORONTO - Even though he has been with the Blue Jays for nearly a month, former Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold is still getting adjusted to playing for a new team. Tuesday marked his first home game with Toronto, so he was still getting used to his new locker and a new clubhouse. After spending his entire career in the Orioles organization, the Blue Jays claimed Reimold off waivers July 6. “I'm happy to be on a team and be able to go out and play baseball like I know I can,” Reimold said.

Jason Berken, a 25-year-old pitcher the Orioles drafted in 2006, persevered through five innings to win his major league debut. Adam Jones and Nolan Reimold, two-thirds of the Orioles' outfield of the future, each slammed two-run home runs. And Orioles fans who stayed home and watched the game on television - and that was pretty much everyone - learned from president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail that they will have to wait only until Friday to witness the much-anticipated arrival of top-prospect catcher Matt Wieters.

In an organization that has been burned by rushing prospects, the case of outfielder Nolan Reimold is a study in patience. For him and for the Orioles. Drafted out of Bowling Green in the second round in 2005, Reimold has progressed level by level. Wherever he has been, the 6-foot-4 right-handed swinger has garnered attention with his raw and consistent power. Now 25, Reimold is in his first month at Triple-A, and he's again making noise with his bat. Last week, he was named International League Batter of the Week after going 13-for-28 with a homer, nine RBIs and a .515 on-base percentage.

PHILADELPHIA - -Rookie left fielder Nolan Reimold spent the first couple of weeks after his mid-May promotion impressing the Orioles with his power. Lately, he has opened some eyes with his patience. Reimold, who was often questioned in the minor leagues for his pitch selection, had drawn walks in seven straight games entering Friday night's series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. During that span, he struck out only once. "He has had some of the most impressive at-bats that we've taken as a team all year, and under some really difficult circumstances," said Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail.

NEW YORK - -Before his major league debut last week, Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold talked with teammate Lou Montanez about the possibility of hitting a home run in his first major league at-bat, a feat Montanez accomplished last season against the Los Angeles Angels. Reimold was unable to do that, but his first major league homer proved significant nonetheless. When Reimold sent Mariano Rivera's cut fastball over the center field wall and off the netting that protects Monument Park in the ninth inning of the Orioles' 11-4 loss Wednesday, he became the first player to hit his first career home run off Rivera during his distinguished career.

Melvin Mora hopped all the way down the third base line, his arms held high in the air. He crossed home plate first, and then came pinch runner Cesar Izturis to join the rest of the players who had gathered to greet the hero of the Orioles' 12-10 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays, easily the most improbable win of their season. Nolan Reimold, whose powerful three-run homer in the 11th inning had just turned a potential gut-wrenching loss into an exhilarating victory, jogged slowly toward home plate, awaiting one beating that he was happy to absorb.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- The same questions have greeted outfielder Jay Payton for years, so he was more than prepared for them when he arrived in the Orioles' clubhouse yesterday. "I know I'm probably not the quote-unquote favorite, but this is the fourth year I've gone into spring training as the fourth outfielder, and I've gotten 400 at-bats every year, so I'm not going to worry about my status too much right now," Payton said. In December, the Orioles acquired left fielder Luke Scott in the Miguel Tejada trade with the Houston Astros, seemingly making Payton the odd man out. Though position players don't have to report until Tuesday and manager Dave Trembley hasn't settled on a regular lineup, it's expected that Payton will serve as the team's fourth outfielder, occasionally platooning with the left-handed-hitting Scott, while also backing up young center fielder Adam Jones.

BOSTON - Three days after designating him for assignment, the Orioles placed outfielder Nolan Reimold on waivers Friday, according to an industry source. It's likely no coincidence that the club placed Reimold, who was on the 60-day disabled list and is returning from his second neck surgery, on waivers over the holiday weekend. Clubs have 48 hours to place a claim on him before he clears at 1 p.m. Sunday. If another club claims Reimold, it must pick up what remains of his $1.025 million salary for this season, which is roughly $500,000.

In his pregame news conference Monday, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Chris Davis has been working quietly with infield coach Bobby Dickerson at third base for the past week or so as an option for when Manny Machado was suspended. Davis, who is starting at third base tonight against the Texas Rangers, has experience at the position, Showalter said, and it allows the Orioles to get Delmon Young in the lineup. Young has been relegated mainly to pinch-hit duties because Steve Pearce has been crushing the ball.

Nolan Reimold has reached the end of his 20-day injury rehabilitation assignment, but the Orioles have yet to decide whether they will designate the outfielder for assignment or add him to the club's 25-man active roster, executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday. Reimold, 30, remains on the 60-day major league disabled list after finishing his rehab stint Sunday. He had been recovering from complications surrounding corrective neck surgery last July. “We're still talking to Nolan and trying to figure out a way to keep him with the ballclub,” Duquette said.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said in his pregame news conference that he hasn't heard anything from the league office about Manny Machado's suspension appeal, so the club is just waiting. He said he doesn't think it's too difficult of a situation. “Not really -- he's prepared for it,” Showalter said. “The dynamic to this is Tuesday. We need a starting pitcher there, and that's why you are cautious to give up a relief pitcher for someone to replace Manny. Because we don't really have somebody on the roster that you feel like physically can go real deep if the team allows them to.” Basically, the Orioles are expecting to lose Machado for between three and five games, starting in the next day or two. They would like to replace him with an infielder, and Jemile Weeks has been summoned to Baltimore, if needed.

BOWIE -- Nolan Reimold has a reason to be optimistic again. Reimold, who has spent most of the past three seasons clinging to small victories with his health and hoping to eventually put his injury-plagued past behind him, is currently in the final days of a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment with Double-A Bowie. And he said recently that he feels "a lot better. " The 30-year-old outfielder's 20-game rehab assignment window ends Sunday, so the Orioles almost certainly need to find a way to add him to the 25-man roster on Monday to keep him in the organization.

Outfielder Nolan Reimold feels “light-years” better than he did at this time last year, according to Buck Showalter. The manager said he could join the Orioles this season if he continues to progress well in his return from multiple neck fusion surgeries. In his second rehab game for Bowie on Wednesday, Reimold served as the designated hitter. He was hitless in his first three at-bats. On Tuesday, he was 1-for-3 and played six innings in left field. “This is the best he's felt since the initial injury,” Showalter said.

Outfielder Nolan Reimold's first big league season, and most likely his chances of becoming American League Rookie of the Year, ended Friday, when he was placed on the 15-day disabled list. He will have surgery in Baltimore on Wednesday to repair the Achilles tendon in his left heel and will be sidelined for three to four months. Reimold, who leads all AL rookies in homers (15), on-base percentage (.365) and slugging percentage (.466), is hopeful that he will be ready for the start of spring training in February.

When Matt Albers jogged in from the bullpen in the worst spot that a reliever possibly could be thrust into, he told himself he would be perfectly content giving up one run. Sure, that would have meant the Orioles had lost the lead and Jeremy Guthrie's perseverance after an ugly first inning would result only in a no-decision. But Albers had to be realistic. With the bases loaded and nobody out and the Orioles up by only a run, anything short of the Washington Nationals taking the lead in the top of the sixth had to be considered a positive result.
