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.

Video: Zack Greinke homers off of Clayton Kershaw

Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke continued to swing a good stick, belting his third homer of the season on Monday night against the Dodgers. With the game tied 3-3 in the second inning, Greinke lined a 1-1 Clayton Kershaw fastball over the fence in left field for a solo homer.

Greinke is the third pitcher to homer off of Kershaw, joining Madison Bumgarner and Tyson Ross. He’s No. 4 if you count Brandon Woodruff‘s home run in Game 1 of the NLCS last year. Greinke now has three homers on the season, setting a career-high. He’s batting .314/.351/.686 with six RBI, seven runs scored, and a stolen base along with the trio of dingers. Absurd numbers from a pitcher.
