Rest assured, Reimold's "injuries" are as much in his head as they are in his muscles.

Unreal, isn't it?  I keep hearing the final line from Samuel Jackson in the movie, "Unbreakable"......"they called me Mr. Glass."

AP 3:02 p.m. EDT July 12, 2014
 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays have placed outfielder Nolan Reimold on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left calf and recalled outfielder Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.

 

The moves were announced before Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.

 

Reimold was hurt running the bases in the fourth inning of Friday night's game with the Rays.

 

Toronto manager John Gibbons doesn't think Reimold's injury is a major one.

We need a new prediction thread.

 

I'll take 'Spring Training'.  If someone invites him.

Nolan Reimold.  David Segui.  Elijah Price.  Long lost triplets. 

 

At least Elijah Price was born with a real physical problem.  :)

 

I remember watching Segui once hit a flyball to LF that looked like a routine out.  He immediately started limping out of the box.  Then the LF lost sight of it, and it dropped.  Segui then "hauled a**" in to a double.  He looked embarrassed after the play was dead, but played out the rest of the game with no issues.  A few days later, once again, Segui found himself injured again, and off to the DL.  Had the OF'er caught the ball, I'd bet the farm he'd have gone on the DL that night.  That's how it worked with him then.

 

I think there are guys in the league who have the natural talent to succeed in the game, but have absolutely zero interest in the actual game, so they put in just enough effort to keep the checks coming.  Segui became one of those guys.  I think Reimold's always been one of those guys.

Nice guy, wish him well, but so glad he is gone.  For a guy that has done absolutely nothing of note in 6 years or so in the bigs, the Sun beat writers have followed this guy' perpetual return from the DL like he was Frank Robinson or something. Thank god Steve Pearce came along to put this guy out the door once and for all. He will always be a symbol of the lost MacPhail years along with Arrietta and Matusz.  Home grown talent that was going to help lead the O's out of the wilderness, but just couldn't get it done. If we can dump Matusz on the hapless Padres this winter for something of note, the purge will be complete.  Too bad Byrne's is gone out there cause Duq has already fleeced them for Brach and Hundley.  I was a big Matusz booster this spring for the rotation, but he has no chance as a starter in the AL East.  He is OK as a lefty specialist for us, but that's it.  Time for him to move on this winter while he has a lick of value.  Maybe Padres think he can re-invent himself as a starter at PETCO back home. For me, he just isn't very good.

Well, if you've been on the shelf as long as he has, one of the first things you can expect to happen after resuming baseball activities is to get a sore leg. Or two sore legs, pulled hammy, etc. Most of the time it's minor stuff, although it can certainly turn into a nagging type of injury where it keeps re-aggravating. I speak from experience, there isn't a whole lot you can do to simulate using your muscles the way you use them playing baseball. You just have to play baseball to get back into baseball playing shape. This is probably not a huge deal.

Unless something changes dramatically, what a sad case of unrealized talent. Followed Reimold quite a bit in the minors, and was intrigued by his numbers. Has (more likely had) the tools to be a potential 30 HR guy, but absolutely positively cannot stay on the field.

 

The O's were more than patient with him.

Had the game winning hit last night, good for him.

absolutely

 

what can you say, the guy has been hurting the O's for years. first as an oft injured or under performing player, and now as a BJ, where he's getting game winning hits every other night, to keep Tor on the heels of the O's.

Just noticed yesterday that he's with the Diamondbacks now.

 

That's a great place to be when you're on the DL.  Endless golf...
