Reimold's final at-bat in 2012 came on April 30 when he grounded out against Mariano Rivera. Then, his back started hurting him, leading to weeks of exams, epidural injections and lots of waiting. In late June, Reimold had surgery. Nearly nine months later, the outfielder can't wait to get going.
At 29, Reimold has a lot to prove to the Orioles. He's never played a full season with them. His rookie season in 2009 was truncated after Achilles tendon surgery. Reimold had 15 home runs and a .279 batting average in 104 games, though, and Baltimore hoped that that was the beginning of a great career.
