Reinheimer cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Reinheimer was claimed off waivers by the Orioles in late January, but he failed to stay on the 40-man roster more than a couple weeks. He wound up clearing waivers this time, however, so he'll stay in the Orioles' organization with their Triple-A squad. At this point, his limited big-league success and inability to stay on the 40-man roster suggests he'll simply be an organizational depth piece in 2019.
Reinheim was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Reinheimer will take a spin through waivers for the fourth time this offseason. The 26-year-old utility infielder hit a combined .257/.324/.377 with five homers and 13 stolen bases in 69 games on the farm in 2018 (primarily at Triple-A). Reinheimer has also made brief appearances in the majors in each of the past two seasons, though his .143/.250/.143 triple-slash through 40 plate appearances during those stints is nothing to write home about.
Reinheim was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Monday. Reinheimer is set to join his fourth club this offseason. The utility infielder spent the majority of 2018 at Triple-A, hitting a combined .257/.324/.377 with five homers and 13 stolen bases in 69 games. He also made 21 appearances at the major-league level, slashing just .167/.286/.167 in 35 plate appearances. Look for Reinheimer to serve as organizational depth in 2019.
Reinheimer was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Thursday. After the Rangers signed Asdrubal Cabrera to a one-year contract, a 40-man roster spot needed to be cleared to make the move official. Reinheimer wound up being the roster casualty after spending the past couple months in the Rangers organization. The 26-year-old infielder will be exposed to waivers once again, though even if he does get claimed by another team, he likely won't be anything more than an organizational depth piece given his lack of success at the major-league level.
Reinheimer was claimed off waivers by the Rangers from the Cubs on Tuesday. Reinheimer was picked up by the Cubs in early November off waivers, but he'll change teams yet again. The 26-year-old shortstop appeared in 25 games for the Mets in 2018 and struggled to a .167/.286/.167 slash line with a stolen base and five walks in 30 at-bats.
