According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles and outfielder Nolan Reimold have agreed to a one-year, $1.025 million contract to avoid arbitration. Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com hears that the deal carries $175,000 in incentives.
Reimold was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. The 30-year-old has been limited to just 56 games over the past two seasons due to multiple neck/spine surgeries, so some speculated that he could be a non-tender candidate for the club, but Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette confirmed last week that the team planned to keep him around.
Reimold has shown potential in the past and will only see a slight raise from the $1 million he made in 2013, so it’s ultimately a small gamble for the chance at a rebound in 2014.
