A tale of two Reimold's

Recommended Posts

Aside from his K rate, hasn't Reimold always been well above average in the Orioles system <b>when he's on the field?</b> This thread just smells to me like we're punishing a guy for being 24 in AA when we drafted him out of college in the first place (so he was 21/22) and he's had several injuries dogging his progress.

My biggest concern is the injuries unless his numbers start to lag.

Reimold didn't start tonight for some reason, but entered mid-game and homered in his first AB, got hit by a pitch in his 2nd AB.

Reimold came in for Boucher who hurt his hand and had to be removed. I'm pretty sure, at this point, that it was just supposed to be a rare night off for Reimold. Up until tonight, Reimold had played in every Baysox game.

2 reactions to this:

1) It is great that he has been healthy enough to play every game.

2) Since he has had health issues, I am surprised they haven't sat him more.

I agree on both points, but point 1 is the one I'm focused on. The O's have said that what he really needs to do is stay healthy and get a lot of AB's. So far, he's been able to do that, and the team has give him the opportunity. No doubt in my mind he needs to move to Norfolk no later than the all-star break.

For those who think AAA is a waste of time, just look at how Costanzo has struggled in the International League compared to the Eastern League. I'd really like to see how Reimold does there over 200 AB before exposing him to major league pitching.

    • Everyone excited about hot starts this spring.  Meanwhile, not a peep about Jorge who’s crushing the ball right now.   Looks like he’s in mid April form.   Jorge, if only this could last longer than a few weeks or a month or two.   When Jorge doesn’t commit too early he’s a dangerous (I didn’t say good) hitter.   He must drive the hitting coaches crazy.

    • Roch: Kyle Stowers broke camp with the Orioles last spring. He’s trying to bust up every mock Opening Day roster that doesn’t include him. Stowers hit his second left-on-left home run today, this time against Bailey Falter, and it was an absolute missile - launched to right-center field at a sound that hurt eardrums. In his next at-bat, Stowers singled into center field against left-hander Ryan Borucki. It’s becoming a trend going back to live batting practice. Stowers held at 2-for-2 after his free pass in the sixth. The media again wanted to grill him about his success versus southpaws. "I'm surprised you don't wanna talk about the walk against the righty," he quipped. "I honestly haven't been seeing as many righties so far for whatever reason. As you guys know, I've been having a little more success against the lefties thus far, and so I was really happy to have that at-bat against the righty. Like I said, I feel confident against both lefties and righties, but it was nice to have a successful, positive result against the righty." Stowers has done a nice job staying on the ball against left-handers and erasing the advantage. "Left-on-left, I think most guys would tell you you're kind of forced to stay on it a little bit longer and it kind of cleans up a lot of lefties mechanically because of what you have to do to have success. ... Just not giving up on that front side." The outfield competition got a whole lot more interesting with Stowers' return to it after going 2-for-30 with the Orioles last year and injuring his right shoulder and fracturing his nose on a hit-by-pitch at Triple-A. He said his spring so far is "OK, I think it could be better." "I love what I'm doing in my work, I love what I'm doing off the field," he said. "I feel like I'm working really hard. Obviously, we all want the results to be better, but I'm really happy with the process I've been putting in and just have to stick to it."
    • I wonder if Lorenzen has some sort of injury that’s preventing him to sign?  Snell and Montgomery both want $30 million a year. Clevinger and Bauer have DV/SA issues. After looking into it, it looks like the only reason Clevinger pitched last year was because he signed his FA deal before the allegations came out.
