The Rays have expressed interest in Mark Reynolds

13 Comments

I used to always add “for some reason” to headlines like that, but at this point I figure it is assumed:

 

Reynolds hit .220/.306/.393 with 21 homers and 67 RBI in 504 plate appearances between the Indians and Yankees in 2013. He can hit some homers and do about nothing else worth a damn, sadly. He has played OK first base at times in the past year or two, so I suppose the Rays could use him as a first baseman if they had to, but this is like a poor — or poorer — man’s version of their mostly ill-fated Carlos Pena move a couple of years ago.
