With Robinson Cano day-to-day after being hit by a pitch, Eduardo Nunez was supposed to play second base. Except, Eduardo Nunez was scratched just a minute ago so …

 

Dear Lord, this is going to be great.

Reynolds was one of the worst defensive third basemen in the game. So bad that he ended up playing a lot of first base and DH for the Orioles and Indians these past couple of years.  He has played one inning of second base for the Yankees this year. Before that he last played second base twice in 2007.

So you may want to watch the Yankees game this evening. You should have some fun.

The Marlins announced on Tuesday afternoon that the club acquired pitcher Severino Gonzalez from the Phillies in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Gonzalez, 24, was designated for assignment last Thursday by the Phillies to make room for outfielder Michael Saunders on the 40-man roster. The right-hander has had a rough go of it in 66 innings in the majors, owning a 6.68 ERA and a 62/14 K/BB ratio. That ratio shows there’s some potential there and the Marlins will have about five years to try and discover it.

Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News reports that the Giants have signed catcher Nick Hundley. It’s a major league deal worth $2 million.

Hundley, who is 33, but who seems like he’s been in the bigs for about 27 years, hit .260/.320/.439 with 10 homers in 83 games for the Rockies last season. Obviously he will be the backup given the presence of Buster Posey.
