Orioles outfield prospect Nolan Reimold is in major league camp for the first time and he's ready for his screen test, even if a great audition probably won't get him the part..
"It feels good,'' he said. "I'm excited to get started and to be here and get ready for my season."
Notice, he didn't say THE season. He'll need a lot of things to break his way to be in the major leagues on Opening Day. The Orioles acquired outfielder Felix Pie and utilityman/fourth outfielder Ryan Freel during the offseason. Designated hitter Luke Scott could still show up in left field, too, which makes for a pretty crowded outfield situation.
Combine that with the possibility of a 13-man pitching staff and Reimold has to figure he's going to start at Norfolk.
"I don't project at all,'' he said. "I take it day to day and hope for the best. I'll just play hard and see what happens."
