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.

Harper's dive back to the bag came up a bit short. Harper's dive is reminiscent of one done by ...
