He CRUSHED the ball in the Spring and posted a sweet line in AA (87-25-84 .284/.367/.501/.868 with a tremendous BB:K 63:82). If the O's are serious about competing, they will have to absolutely rake since their pitching is abysmal. Little help here GTWMA?
I've been saying they should give Reimold a shot for a year and a half (OK, he was injured part of that time, but I think the Orioles baby their prospects way too much).
Pie's got no options, so I think he stays despite his stuggles. He'll get a few months to see if he can contribute, and if he doesn't his time will be eaten by Wiggy, Scott, and Freel. I'm not sure how many super-utility guys the O's keep. I would hope that any struggles or injuries will open up time for Reimold, but I don't know. I don't think he has a huge ceiling, but I think he could definitely be a decent player.
