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.

Lyle Overbay Likely To Retire

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. The first baseman said on MLB Network Radio (Twitter link) that he is “99.9 percent” certain that he will retire this offseason. 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 Diamondbacks along with shorter stints with the Pirates, Yankees, and Braves. Overbay ...

Brewers To Conduct Review During Offseason

Sep 27 2014 2:03pm CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

Following an extremely disappointing ending to their season that saw them slip from first place to completely out of playoff contention, the Brewers will conduct an “extensive review” following the season, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman writes. GM Doug Melvin is concerned about the team’s inability to stop losing streaks once they start, and about the team’s offense. That means that manager Ron Roenicke and hitting coach Johnny Narron could be under ...

Blaming the Brewers' slide on one position

Sep 19 2014 11:48am CDT | Source: SBNation

It's probably not fair to do so, but, well, I have a column to write. The Brewers are going to miss the playoffs because they didn't sign Jose Abreu. This is hindsight masquerading as analysis, of course. But the math is almost there! Abreu has been worth 5.3 wins above replacement according to Baseball-Reference; Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay have combined for 0.6 wins. Take those five wins, graft them onto the Brewers' win total, and they ...
