How will Nolan Reimold perform?

How will Nolan Reimold perform?

Assuming he's healthy and can give us 400 ABs, do you seem him at least duplicating Reynolds' 23 bombs last year??? 8-)

I have a bad gut feeling that I hope I am wrong on. I really wonder about his health...If fully healthy yes. I think we will see how this plays out in ST but if he proves healthy and no rust he could bat 2-5 in the line-up. How awesome would it be if he picks up where he left off this past spring. If the plan is CD at first then I think that the DH team of a healthy Reimold or Betermit and guests will more than make up for Reynolds offensive production.

It will be better for the team to just count on Reimold in a minimized role at first. When he proves he is healthy and productive, then we can expand his role. He is probably one of the best hitters in our organization. I'd be more inclined to pretty much hand him the starting left field job like last year if we weren't expected to compete and he was younger. He is 29. We aren't exactly grooming a youngling here.

Sure, the problem though is that he has never had 400 at bats in one major league season.
