From MASN’s Roch Kubatko comes word that the Blue Jays have claimed outfielder Nolan Reimold off waivers from the Orioles. Reimold was designated for assignment by Baltimore last week after his 20-day minor league rehab assignment window closed.

The 30-year-old has appeared in just 56 games at the major league level since the beginning of the 2012 season due to a chronic neck injury, but he batted .279/.365/.466 with 15 home runs and 45 RBI in 104 games as a rookie in 2009 and the Jays will hope that he can finally stay healthy. Reimold can serve as a backup corner outfielder and right-handed bench bat for Toronto.

He was a second-round pick in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft out of Bowling Green State University.

    Good riddance. Enjoy his wife who whines more than John Lackey.

    I knew someone would claim him. Sucks he couldn’t stay healthy long enough to stick around here.

    I wish Nolan the best. Seemed like good guy who kept catching some bad breaks with his health. He was fun to watch when he was on.
