Reimold could move into regular role in left

ARLINGTON -- With Tuesday's move to put Luke Scott (right shoulder) on the disabled list, Nolan Reimold figures to see a lot more time in left field for the Orioles. How much, manager Buck Showalter wouldn't say.

Asked if Reimold and Felix Pie would be a straight platoon, Showalter said he didn't want to commit to something that definite.

"I will try to get them both some at-bats," he said. "[I] let Nolan get out there [Monday]. I wouldn't be surprised if Pie plays [Wednesday]. But, you know, if Nolan gets it going, I might ride with him. So, I'm going to let him get some consistent at-bats too."

Reimold entered Tuesday hitting .255 with four homers and 12 RBIs in 23 games and has done well despite the limited action. He tied a season high with four RBIs on Thursday, and the right-handed hitter could work his way into more of an everyday role. The more defensive-minded Pie was hitting .239 with no homers and five RBIs in 63 games.
