Did you know that the Blue Jays acquired Nolan Reimold back on July 6? It has not felt like a month-and-a-half since that waiver claim. Of course, he had a stint on the disabled list four games into his tenure here (beating the one-game stint of Cole Gillespie) so he ended up playing just 22 games for the Blue Jays. It was a fairly unspectacular 22 games that had him hit .212/.283/.404 and striking out 22 times out of 60 plate appearances. That kind of strikeout rate mixed with some bad defense is what got Juan Francisco released... oh that was only in my dreams? Poop. Anyway, this morning, we learned that the Reimold Era is over (and the J. Francisco Era continues): Reimold has been designated for assignment, and Kevin Pillar has been recalled from Buffalo. The move is not official at the time of writing, but Roch Kubatko reported the DFA early Tuesday morning, Shi Davidi reported both moves later in the morning, all after Jenn passed us the note on Twitter last evening.
