When healthy, Reimold has been a solid contributor in the outfield, but since he dove into the stands of Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field in April 2012, he's been beset by a neck injury that has cost him most of the past two years. A strong start in 2012 ended after just 16 games and led to season-ending surgery to fuse two vertebrae together. Complications from that surgery ended his 2013 season after 40 games. The Orioles' strict physical standards have been in the spotlight this offseason in the wake of the Grant Balfour mess -- the club stepped away from a two-year, $15-million deal with the free agent relief closer after doctors became concerned about his shoulder -- but the Orioles were still willing to give Reimold, who had played in just 56 games the past two years, another look. They must still see promise.
