Reimold named No. 1 prospect in Class A

Baseball America has slated former Falcon outfielder Nolan Reimold as the No. 1 prospect coming from the Class A New York-Penn League. The Oct. 10 issue of Baseball America chose the top 10 prospects from each minor league with Reimold topping the list for the New York-Penn League after an outstanding year with the Aberdeen IronBirds.

After batting .360 with 20 homeruns and 62 RBI during his junior season with BGSU, Reimold was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the second round, 61st pick overall in the 2005 June draft.

In 50 games with the Aberdeen IronBirds, the Greenville, Pa. native hit for .294 with nine homeruns and 30 RBI.

BA said of Reimold, “At 6-foot-4 and 207 pounds, it’s no surprise that Reimold has plus power… He had no problem making the jump to the high Class A Carolina League.”
