Yankees Sign Mark Reynolds

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees have reached an agreement with corner infielder Mark Reynolds on a contract.

Reynolds hit .205/.307/.373 with 15 home runs before being released by Cleveland. Reynolds was hot early in the season, as he hit .291/.367/.645 through May 9th, but has only hit .177/.277/.240 since.

Reynolds was probably signed to play first base against lefties, as the Yankees have been forced to use Lyle Overbay against most lefties because they have not had a platoon partner for him. Reynolds has a 111 wRC+ and a .330 wOBA againt lefties this year, which are solid numbers and a big upgrade over Overbay’s 50 wRC+ and .250 wOBA against lefties this season.

  1. Soriano is doing better than anyone expected, and Reynolds gives the Yanks another right hand option down the stretch. Do the Yanks have enough to get to the playoffs? Right now they are still a long shot in my book. To bad that Phelps is injured, he would be a good replacement for Hughes. He has been terrible!

    Not true Doug …..about Soriano you say nobody expected it. Patrick said it was the right move while you criticized it. Man up and give Patrick the kudos.

    • Nickel, have a clue, nobody expected Soriano to play the way he is playing, and I never criticized the move to get Soriano.

    Anyone with a brain knew Soriano was exactly what they needed. Right handed power . And we already knew he could do it in NY because he has come up big before. When we got him you named a bunch of players we should have gotten instead…. Just admit Patrick was right and you were wrong.
