Nolan Reimold hasn't played in a game since last Wednesday, and he hasn't gotten an at-bat since June 19, which was eight games ago. The reason? The Orioles simply haven't been facing any left-handed pitching. The Orioles have faced right-handed starters in six consecutive games and 11 of their past 13 contests. They are scheduled to get Kyle Lohse, Chris Carpenter and Jake Westbrook -- all right-handed pitchers -- against the St. Louis Cardinals. They'll then go to Atlanta, where they are tentatively lined up to face Jair Jurrjens, Tim Hudson and Brandon Beachy, again all right-handers. And in the Atlanta series, the Orioles will have Vladimir Guerrero's right-handed bat back on the bench because they lose the DH. I'd never advocate for somebody to get demoted, and I'm certainly not going to do that with Reimold, who I feel is a major league player who can help this club. However, I think it's fair to ask: If Orioles manager Buck Showalter continues to go with either Luke Scott or Felix Pie in left field against right-handed pitching, is Reimold better served getting daily at-bats for Triple-A Norfolk or sitting primarily on the bench for two weeks at a time? I know what my answer is, but I'll let you decide.
