Nolan is a right-handed hitting outfielder, he has hit .252/.327/.439 in 286 MLB games. Against LHP he is .252/.323/.426 in his career. This year he was hitting .315/.420/.481 in Double-A Bowie. He's played all 3 outfield spots as well as some 1B in the minors.
He's an upgrade over what we've had of late. No word on who is leaving the 40-man to make room for him.
Well, we know who's leaving the 40-man now:
Glenn DFA'd to make room for Reimold. He will join #bluejays within next couple days. EE still waiting MRI results but DL almost certain— Barry Davis (@SNBarryDavis) July 6, 2014
Also no word on Edwin's injury yet but look who is playing first today: Interesting (but not exactly great) lineup.
