Nolan Reimold, 2006 Tristar Prospects Plus #75

It's good to see Nolan Reimold finally get some regular playing time, and it's even better to see him taking advantage of the opportunity. Finally free from the shadows of Felix Pie, Luke Scott, and Vlad Guerrero, the power-hitting left fielder is getting results as the team's new leadoff hitter. Last night against the Blue Jays, Nolan doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly in the first inning, singled, stole second base, and scored the tying run in the eighth inning, and added an important insurance run with his first homer of the season an inning later. Sure, he also made a costly error to give Toronto their second run in the fourth inning. And although his batting average is .308, he has yet to take a walk. So he's still got some work to do. But at least he's getting the chance to hone his skills in an everyday game situation without fear of being buried on the bench.
