MLB: NY Yankees Sign 1B Mark Reynolds

Aug 15 2013, 10:30pm CDT | by

The New York Yankees signed first baseman Mark Reynolds after he was released by the Cleveland Indians.

The New York Yankees signed first baseman Mark Reynolds on Thursday.

This was confirmed by Yankees general manager Brian Cashman via ESPN New York. This comes after Reynolds was designated for assignment by the Cleveland Indians last week. Cleveland signed him to a one-year, $6 million deal in December. 

Reynolds' season got off to a good start when he hit 13 home runs in April and May. However, his batting average plummeted from .301 in April to .187 since. He went .098 (5-for-51) with only one RBI last month. 

All of these resulted in Reynolds' batting .215 and slugging .373 for the 2013 MLB season which prompted the Indians to release him. 

Benjamin Hoffman of the New York Times notes Reynolds has a propensity to strike out inasmuch as he can display power. Hoffman cites a stretch from 2008-2011 when he hit 141 home runs in spite of 834 strikeouts. 

The Yankees signed Reynolds due to their need for right-handed power. As of August 14, they are second-to-last in the American League in home runs. In addition, Reynolds was primarily a third baseman during his days with the Baltimore Orioles, but could see some time at first base to pick up the slack for Lyle Overbay. 

He could also share third-base duties with beleaguered star Alex Rodriguez. 

Four teams were reportedly interested in Reynolds' services, but he eventually chose the Yankees, per CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

The Brewers are the ultimate win-now team

Nov 3 2014 11:18am CST | Source: SBNation

And they get to relax a bit with the smart Adam Lind trade. The Brewers' collapse didn't get enough attention. We switched from wondering what in the heck happened to the Giants right to wondering what in the heck happened to the A's, as if a lazy cloud of suck blew slowly across the Bay. While that was happening, the Brewers were falling even further, even quicker. My pet theory: They needed a first baseman.The ...

For the First Time Since 2011 the Brewers Have a “Real” First Baseman

Nov 2 2014 7:06pm CST | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

After the 2013 season, it was obvious that the Brewers were in serious need of help at 1B. During that offseason, the Brewers brought in veterans Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds as insurance in case they decided not to give the starting job to Juan Francisco.  At the time, few fans were enthusiastic about the prospects at 1B heading into 2014, but the Brewers really didn’t have a lot of options and at least the Overbay/Reynolds moves appeared to be lo ...

Brewers acquire Adam Lind from Blue Jays

Nov 1 2014 1:46pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

The Milwaukee Brewers have moved quickly to fill their hole at first base this offseason, acquiring former Blue Jay Adam Lind in exchange for long reliever Marco Estrada. Toronto just picked up a $7.5 million option on Lind for 2015, and the Brewers will now have him at that salary. Milwaukee also has an $8 million club option for Lind in 2016, making him more than a rental. In 2014, he hit .321/.381/.479 w ...

Oct 2 2014 9:37am CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

With his 14th big league season in the books, Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay sounds ready to call it a career.

If that indeed holds true, he’ll finish as a lifetime .266/.347/.429 hitter with 151 homers. Those numbers were compiled over stretches with the Blue Jays, Brewers, and D ...
