D-backs claim Reimold off waivers from Jays
By / MLB.com
PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have claimed outfielder Nolan Reimold off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays, as announced by D-backs executive vice president and general manager Kevin Towers. A corresponding move will be made prior to Friday's game.
Reimold, 30, appeared in 22 games with the Blue Jays this season, hitting .212 (11-for-52) with two home runs and nine RBIs. He began the season on the Baltimore Orioles' disabled list after undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. Reimold was then designated for assignment on July 1 and was claimed off waivers by Toronto on July 6.
In six Major League seasons with the Orioles (2009-13) and Blue Jays (2014), Reimold batted .250 (247-for-988) with 43 home runs and 135 RBIs in 308 games. He hit 15 home runs with 45 RBIs in his rookie season in 2009, including his first homer on May 20 at Yankee Stadium off Mariano Rivera.
Reimold was drafted in the second round (61st overall) of the 2005 First-Year Player Draft out of Bowling Green State University.
