Twins in on Mark Reynolds
My apologies if this was already posted. I tried to scan for a Reynolds topic, but did not see one.
Anyway, from MLB Trade Rumors:
Earlier today, the Yankees reached agreements with both Brian Roberts and Matt Thornton.They're likely to continue adding pieces, however. A source confirmed to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (Twitter link) that the Yanks have spoken to Mark Reynolds' agent, though nothing is close on that front. Here's the latest on Reynolds, the Yankees and the Mets...
- The Yankees are in on Reynolds, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, but they'll face competition from the Twins, Angels and others in their attempt to land him.
What interests me:
Classic power hitter. Reminds me somewhat of Russell Branyon (not comparing stats ... just see his HR total with the low BA and K's seems to think hit or miss.
He was released last year by Cleveland and signed by the Yankees. I'm not much of an expert on him. What do others think of him? His stats page says he plays first and third. If he plays third, there is a good chance he could get into the lineup regularly until Sano comes up. If he's more of an emergency 3B, then I think we might be best to pass up on him. We have enough of the 1B/DH players.
