Reimold and Orioles avoid arbitration


The Baltimore Orioles and outfielder Nolan Reimold avoided arbitration agreeing to a one-year deal.

Reimold missed most of last season while dealing with a herniated disk in his neck. He hit .313 with five home runs and 10 RBI during his limited playing time.

The deal between Reimold and the Orioles is for $1 million. He would get an additional $50,000 if he’s an All-Star and $50,000 if he wins a Silver Slugger Award. He figures to see a bulk of the playing time in left-field.

Baltimore has eight players still eligible to file Tuesday: catcher Matt Wieters; right-handers Tommy Hunter, Jason Hammel, Jim Johnson and Darren O’Day; left-handers Brian Matusz and Troy Patton; and infielder Chris Davis.
