Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold may be one of those early-season waiver finds savvy fantasy baseball owners salivate over grabbing in deeper mixed league formats. Virtually undrafted in most standard formats in ESPN, Yahoo! and CBS leagues, the window of opportunity to grab him off waivers is closing quickly.
Reimold has put up a robust standard 5×5 line of .370/9/5/10/1 in 11 games and is currently riding a 10-game hitting streak since opening the season 0-for-4.
