That way he could be the right-handed hitter to platoon with Davis/Betemit at First/DH and be the 4th outfielder with Hoes, Jones, and Markakis in left,right,center. He could also pinch hit and pinch run.

Depending on Reimold at this point would just be silly. I still believe he is the best all around hitter on the team but he just can't be relied upon as the everyday LF.
Why are you focusing on Reimold in LF? Don't you think that he might be more durable as a DH (or part of a DH platoon)?
It's going to be one of the three IMO. All have their flaws and all have their strengths.
If you want the most dynamic player whom might get hurt than it is Reimold.
If you want a consistent player who might be a hollow batting average, go with Hoes.
If you want speed and defense and occasional flashes of other skills, go with Avery.
I will LOVE this battle come spring. Should be great to follow.
