January 11, 2013 | WNST Staff


The Orioles announced Friday that they have agreed to terms with outfielder Nolan Reimold on a one-year contract, thus avoiding arbitration.

Reimold, 29, was limited to 16 games in 2012 due to a herniated disk in his neck and was on the disabled list from May 1 through the end of the season. In his 16 games, he batted .313 (21-67) with five home runs and 10 RBI.

The Orioles now have eight arbitration eligible players remaining: catcher Matt Wieters, infielder Chris Davis, left-handed pitchers Brian Matusz and Troy Patton, and right-handed pitchers Tommy Hunter, Jason Hammel, Jim Johnson, and Darren O’Day.
