Nolan Reimold hit .313 with five home runs and 10 RBIs last season.

Despite missing most of last season, outfielder Nolan Reimold more than doubled his salary when he agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles.

The 29-year-old hit .313 with five home runs and 10 RBIs last year, when he didn't play after April 30 because of a herniated disk in his neck. He made $490,500.

Reimold's agreement, announced Friday, avoided salary arbitration. Baltimore has eight players still eligible to file Tuesday: catcher Matt Wieters; right-handers Tommy Hunter, Jason Hammel, Jim Johnson and Darren O'Day; left-handers Brian Matusz and Troy Patton; and infielder Chris Davis.

In addition to his salary, Reimold would get $50,000 if he's an All-Star and $50,000 if he wins a Silver Slugger Award.
