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.

    I think he’ll fit in well in the National League. Always liked him as an Oriole.

    Ah the great Reimold who helped ruin the Sox 2011 season. He’s likely to strike again this Sept. Playoff teams beware!
