Nolan Reimold is expected to go on the paternity list after Sunday's game.
He can be away from the team for up to three days. The 31-year-old has played sparingly this year, making just 38 at-bats over 16 games. The 10-day minor league rehab window doesn't apply to players on paternity leave. That allows Ryan Flaherty to take Reimold's roster spot even though he was just optioned on Saturday.

Nolan Reimold went 1-for-3 with a two-run single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Reimold hit a two-run single off of Yankee starter Adam Warren in the first inning. It would be his only base knock of the game. Reimold was called up on June 9 and has recorded five hits through five games. Last season, he slashed .232/.282/.435 between the Blue Jays and Diamondbacks. He's a dependable outfielder, but carries a suspect bat and a high risk of injury.

Nolan Reimold, called up Tuesday, hit his first homer Thursday against the Red Sox.

Reimold wasn't showing much power in Triple-A, hitting just two homers in 177 at-bats, so it was rather surprising that he was called up over Chris Parmelee this week. It'd be nice to see him reemerge as a legitimate starting left fielder for the Orioles, but even if he does prove productive, he's still about as injury prone as they come.

Orioles purchased the contract of OF Nolan Reimold from Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles have yet to announce a corresponding roster move, but Reimold will start in left field Tuesday night against the Red Sox. The 31-year-old has batted .286/.351/.389 with two homers and 13 RBI over 46 games this season in Triple-A, which was enough to earn another shot with the big club. He'll try to take advantage of the opportunity in Baltimore's outfield right now.
Jun 9 - 3:14 PM

Roch Kubatko of reports that the Orioles will call up Nolan Reimold prior to Tuesday's game.

They'll need to add him to the 40-man roster, but it appears the O's don't want to lose the 31-year-old. Reimold has batted .286/.351/.389 with two homers at Triple-A Norfolk this season and could have opted out of his contract had Baltimore not promised to promote him.

Nolan Reimold is suing Johns Hopkins Hospital for allegedly providing negligent medical care following his neck fusion surgery from 2012.

The suit claims Reimold was discharged and returned to the field before his bones were fully fused. He eventually required another surgery in 2013. "Every game I played caused further injury," Reimold alleges in the suit. The 31-year-old is currently playing with the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate.

Nolan Reimold homered and doubled in his two at-bats before Friday's Orioles-Rays game was called due to rain.

The Orioles were up 4-3 in the fourth when the game ended. Since it's not official, stats from the game won't count. That's too bad for Reimold, who needs every hit he can muster to force the Orioles to free up a roster spot for him. They probably can't carry all three of him, Delmon Young and David Lough as bench players. Including today, Reimold is batting .353 with two homers and a 5/6 K/BB ratio in 34 at-bats.
Mar 27 - 4:01 PM

Nolan Reimold went 2-for-2 on Wednesday and is batting .333 with a homer and six walks in 30 at-bats.

ESPN's Jayson Stark noted yesterday that Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Reimold might be their year's Steve Pearce. Of course, it's injuries that have held Reimold back, and he's not as athletic as he once was. He still might be a nice player in a part-time role, but most likely, he'll have to go to Triple-A for the first month or two and wait for a job to open up.
Mar 25 - 5:47 PM

Orioles signed OF Nolan Reimold to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

They can't quit each other. Reimold played in Baltimore for the first five years of his career but was mostly a disappointment after his impressive 2009 rookie campaign. He spent the 2014 season with the Blue Jays and Diamondbacks, batting just .232 with a .717 OPS in 29 games. The 31-year-old outfielder is doubtful to have a big impact in his return to the O's.
Feb 3 - 5:34 PM

Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles have made an offer to free agent outfielder Nolan Reimold.

The 31-year-old outfielder, who has been plagued by injury issues in recent years, is also attracting interest from the Indians and Athletics. He appeared in 29 games between the Jays and D'Backs in 2014, slashing .232/.282/.435 with three homers and 13 RBI in 69 at-bats.
Jan 31 - 8:52 AM

Roch Kubatko of reports that the Indians are "showing a lot of interest" in Nolan Reimold.

Kubatko notes that Reimold nearly had a deal to return to the Orioles on the last day of the Winter Meetings, but it fell apart and now the Indians are looking like a more probable landing spot. Reimold has had numerous health issues over the years, as his 46 games played last season between the majors and minors was his highest total in three years.
Jan 23 - 5:01 PM

Nolan Reimold has elected free agency.

The 30-year-old bounced around to three different organizations in 2014, hitting .232/.282/.425 with three homers and 13 RBI in 29 games with the Blue Jays and Diamondbacks. He's proven to be a solid major league bat when healthy, and shouldn't have difficulty finding a new destination where he can compete for a reserve outfielder role.

Nolan Reimold hit a two-run pinch-hit home run in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Reimold, who joined his third organization this season when he was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks on Thursday, hit the two-run shot off Jorge De La Rosa in the seventh inning. The outfielder has struggled to stay healthy in his career, and he's hitting .246/.308/.474 in 24 games this year.

Diamondbacks claimed OF Nolan Reimold off waivers from the Blue Jays.

Reimold was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays earlier this week after batting .212/.283/.404 with two home runs and nine RBI over 60 plate appearances. He figures to function as a bench player down the stretch.

Blue Jays designated OF Nolan Reimold for assignment.

Kevin Pillar is expected to take his place on the active roster. Reimold has batted .212/.283/.404 with two home runs and nine RBI over 22 games with the Blue Jays this season.
