The Mets announced on Monday evening that the club traded infielder Matt Reynolds to the Nationals in exchange for cash considerations. Reynolds was designated for assignment by the Mets last Wednesday to make room for Todd Frazier on the 40-man roster.
Reynolds, 27, has hit an underwhelming .228/.300/.351 across parts of two seasons in the major leagues with the Mets. However, he has already played all four infield positions and both outfield corners, so he offers a lot of flexibility for a bench player. Reynolds is also under club control for five more years.
