D-backs claim outfielder Nolan Reimold off waivers from Blue Jays


PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) have claimed outfielder Nolan Reimold off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays, as announced by D-backs Executive Vice President & General Manager Kevin Towers. A corresponding move will be made prior to tomorrow's game.

Reimold, 30, appeared in 22 games with the Blue Jays this season, hitting .212 (11-for-52) with 2 home runs and 9 RBI. 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 6 Major League seasons with the Orioles (2009-13) and Blue Jays (2014), Reimold batted .250 (247-for-988) with 43 home runs and 135 RBI in 308 games. He hit 15 home runs with 45 RBI in his rookie season in 2009, including his first-ever homer on May 20 at Yankees 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.

The D-backs' 40-man roster is now at 40.
