BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Finally getting a chance to begin a season with semi-regular playing time for the first time since a 2009 injury turned him into a year-and-a-half-long afterthought, Reimold managed to play just one month last season before succumbing to injury once again. Itís a shame, too, because the one-time top prospect was successfully building upon a strong 2011 second half, seemingly poised to establish himself as a legitimate threat. Reimoldís best asset is his above-average power, and a solid approach at the plate should make him a well-rounded hitter the next time he gets a chance to prove himself. Letís hope he doesnít have to wait another year and a half for that opportunity.
2012 A stud in college, Reimold was a second round pick in 2006, climbing the ladder quickly and establishing himself as one of the Orioles' top prospects. After just 130 plate appearances at Triple-A, the O's promoted Reimold to the bigs in 2009, and he didn't disappoint, triple-slashing .279/.365/.466. A guy with good (and projectable) power, also capable of hitting for average, taking a walk, and swiping a few bags, Reimold had people excited for his sophomore season. Unfortunately, after offseason ankle surgery, Reimold proved ineffective to start 2010, was sent down, and wasn't heard from again until September call-ups. He remained an afterthought until Luke Scott was injured this season, leaving left field open for Reimold to get another shot. Taking advantage, a healthy Reimold posted numbers almost identical to what he did in 2009. He seems poised to establish himself as a serviceable major league regular in 2012, if given a starting job. Word is he might platoon with Endy Chavez, though, which would limit his at-bats as the righty half of the platoon.
2011 Reimoldís season was a disaster picture that would rank with any film in the Irwin Allen oeuvre. Still suffering the effects of the Achilles tear that ended his 2009 season, he had all the outfield mobility of a dump truck with three flat tires. Given that defense was never his strong suit, he might have survived this had his bat not decided to jump into the dump truck as well. Demoted in May, three months of not-hitting followed. Reimold finally heated up in August, albeit without his customary power (.320/.460/.443, two home runs in 97 at-bats). Recalled when rosters expanded, he was mostly ignored by Showalter, logging just 35 plate appearances. To say his major-league career is at a crossroads would be an understatement.
2010 We liked Reimold a lot last year, but he surpassed our expectations. After a ridiculously hot start at Norfolk, Reimold came up in May, shoved Pie out of the left-field picture, and kept on hitting. He did eventually hit the wall in July and August, in part due to accumulating leg injuries, the most serious being a 25 percent tear of his Achilles tendon that he played through, seeking surgery after the season. The power is genuine; the downside is that he was a 25-year-old rookie, so there isn't as much potential growth from a guy who just got here as you'd initially think.
2009 A slugging outfielder who's fought nagging injuries on his way up, Reimold finished second in the Eastern League in homers (to teammate Lou Montanez), and that earned him a spot on the team's 40-man roster. At the very least, you would expect him to be the first outfielder called up in event of injury in 2009, and don't count out a possible job platooning with Luke Scott in left.
2008 Reimold missed more than half the year with oblique injuries, but otherwise had his best season yet. He has excellent power, especially against lefties, but needs to learn to handle breaking pitches better. If he can, he'll improve both his strikeout rate and his platoon splits. Odds are the strikeouts will stay high, which will limit him to being a fairly average major league outfielder, but that wouldn't prevent him from supplanting Jay Payton sometime this year.
2007 If you`re going to be one-dimensional, you need to be great in that dimension, just good. Reimold a poor defender, doesn`t hit for average at all, and has good power, maybe very good, but definitely not great. He has had back problems, which one could plausibly argue sapped some of his power, but that`s about the only way to spin back problems in a 22 year old as a positive.
2006 Reimold is a polished college player, so you can`t get too excited about his performance at Aberdeen. College guys frequently pound the short-season leagues, which have a lot of players straight out of high school. However, his performance at Frederick is an impressive additional endorsement. Reimold has big-time power, having finished second in slugging at NCAA Division I last year. He`s fast enough, at least for now, to play center. There`s some concern, however, that he`ll add more weight and slow down. If he does bulk up, he has the arm for right.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)How offended are you when a rehabbing minor leaguer plays an end at your curling rink?
(ssimon from Pelham, N.Y.)
Is that why Nolan Reimold keeps crashing my games? I knew it. (Matt Sussman)
2012-11-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you set us straight, please, about some slow right-handed sluggers: 1) Why are the Orioles pursuing Jonny Gomes, unless Nolan Reimold is not expected to fully recover? 2) Why would anyone want a 27 year old .700 OPS (last two seasons) player known for his miscues - Delmon Young, unless they are duped into thinking he's still going to be good based on a good week in the ALCS?
(John Carter from Toronto)
Good afternoon, John Carter. The Orioles-Gomes connection surfaced yesterday, and I touched on it in today's Rumor Roundup. A designated hitter platoon certainly isn't ideal, but Gomes has a track record of mashing left-handed pitching, so there's room for him to share that job with, say, Chris Davis, even if Reimold and Nick Markakis are healthy and playing full-time in the outfield corners.

As for Delmon, I think most teams will be smart enough to seek other options, so a rough landing might be in store. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Orioles -- purely a fluke that will be corrected over the course of the season or better than we thought and could be .500 (I realize there are more options).
(Jay from Madison)
I talked about the Orioles earlier with Marc Normandin. (Heís writing a piece about the Orioles for tomorrow, so watch out for that.) Weíre at the point in the season where the Orioles just have to play like a 75-win team from here on out to reach 81 wins. That isnít unattainable. Realistically, I donít think Chris Davis and Nolan Reimold are going to continue to hit like this, and I donít think the starting rotation is quite this good. I could see them flirting with .500, but contention? Nah, not this season.

Of course, a month ago I wouldíve had them in last place now, so you never know with this game. Maybe the Orioles do the unthinkable. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Endy Chavez going to get 400 abs this year?
(Abe Froman from Chicago)
Iíll give him 300, but not 400. With Wilson Betemit signing in Baltimore this off-season, it seems more likely that Nolan Reimold gets a lot of the LF time, also spending some time at DH with Betemit and giving Endy some starts in LF on those days. If Chris Davis happens to crash and burn or get injured, itís possible Betemit plays first/third, Reimold DHs, and Endy plays close to full-time, though. (Derek Carty)
2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)We're approaching 40 games into the season, and the shock of the O's dismal start is starting to fade, and now I can't help but feel bitter. Wasn't this the year they were supposed to make it to .500, beginning an upward trend for at least a few years? Can you help me make sense of it all?
(tmcghan from Bay Area, CA)
Well, losing Brian Roberts for a couple of months is a major blow, but you're right, there's some disconcerting stuff going on there, such as Adam Jones' chilly start, the odd shipment of Nolan Reimold to Triple-A, and the inexplicable continuing presence of Garret Atkins. Still, Matt Wieters is making progress, as is Brian Matusz, and Chris Tillman appears to be coming around at Triple-A. Just remember that a turnaround for an organization with such a back history of losing takes time, and probably a change at the helm -- I'd have bet that Dave Trembley would get the axe before Trey Hillman, and I doubt he'll be around for much longer. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the CYA (Greinke) and the MVP (Mauer) awards pretty well settled who do you have for RoY??
(kcboomer from kc)
I'm sort of ambivalent. I imagine it will be Gordon Beckham, but I feel like you could make just as good a case for Andrew Bailey or Jeff Neimann. Nolan Reimold had a good year too, and I'm sure that some people will claim that Elvis Andrus helped the Rangers accomplish... accomplish... Oh, never mind. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you know of any way to estimate in advance which players will come up from the minors and produce to their ability right away (Nolan Reimold), and which need a period to get acclimated before producing to their ability (Matt Wieters)?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
If I knew, I probably wouldn't be working for BP, I'd be in somebody's front office. I don't think there's any magical way to tell. A lot of it has to do with scouting, and some of it also with expectations. For Wieters, I suspect that a good deal of his problem has been the fact that he's had to learn a whole new set of pitchers (or three, given all of the staff turnover) while adapting to hitting big-league pitching himself. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Elvis Andrus, Gordon Beckham, Nolan Reimold, maybe Rickey Romero, or Andrew Bailey...who you got as AL RoY?
(Lincoln from Dallas)
Beckham, who just recently passed Andrus. It's very close.

I really like Gordon Beckham. He could win an MVP as a shortstop. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is Nolan Reimold's role on the next Orioles dynasty?
(Jake from Aberdeen)
Worst regular in the lineup? That's not entirely fair, given that I like him more than that, but ideally, they figure out what they're going to do at first base and shortstop and give that pitching staff of 2012 a ton of run support. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)I know he's still very young, but do you see any signs that Billy Rowell will eventually tap into the potential that caused the O's to draft him in the first place? Also, do you think Nolan Reimold is ready for the majors?
(Dave from Massachusetts)
No; almost, but I don't see Reimold as a stud as much as I see him as solid -- and that's not a bad thing. (Kevin Goldstein)
