Nationals interested in Mark Reynolds

21 Comments

Washington paid a premium to add Nate McLouth as a fourth outfielder and now Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that the Nationals are trying to beef up their bench even further with Mark Reynolds.

According to Ladson they’ve “expressed interest” in Reynolds, who split last season between the Indians and Yankees while hitting .220 with 21 homers and a .699 OPS in 135 games.

It seems unlikely that Reynolds would sign with the Nationals unless he has no offers to be a regular, because Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche are locked in as the corner infield starters in Washington.
