Dont look now but Reimold is heating up! .382 2 HR 9 RBI over his last 10 games- however, with Pie playing the way he is, if Reimold gets called up I doubt he sees much playing time unless someone gets hurt. Reimold needs to learn 1B this offseason so he has a shot of actually playing when making to the majors. I have a feeling Pie or Reimold could be used as trade bait during the offseason.

Slowly but surely, they're getting to the point where they have enough depth in the minors that there are good options in case of injury, and trade chips that other teams might actually want.

With Pie's development, Reimold could be turning into either a productive bat off the bench who already had success as a full-time player, or a piece that could sweeten a trade for a difference maker.

heard a rumor their considering moving triple a to Aberdeen
