Mark Reynolds is the Yankees starting second baseman tonight

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 Astros announced on Monday that the club claimed reliever Buddy Boshers off waivers from the Twins.

Boshers, 29, had been designated for assignment by the Twins last week. Across parts of three seasons, the lefty compiled a 4.59 ERA with a 78/25 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings in the big leagues.

Boshers has handled left-handed hitters much better than right-handed hitters, holding them to a career .621 and .793 OPS, respectively. If he makes the 25-man roster out of spring training, the Astros may use him as a LOOGY — a left-handed one-out guy. As of right now, Tony Sipp is the only lefty in the ‘pen.
