Reynolds, who will be going into his age 30 season, split his 2013 season with the Indians and Yankees. New York signed him as a free agent after he was released from the Indians. Reynolds primarily played first base, although he saw some time at third as well on the injury-depleted Yankees’ staff.
He hit .220/.306/.393 for 2013, hitting 21 home runs and driving in 67. He comes as a decent power-potential bat, but is also known for racking up strike outs at an alarming rate. He set a record in 2009 with 223 Ks, but only amassed 153 last season. The aforementioned teams would likely look to add him on as a utility infielder or bring him in on a minor league deal with an invite to big league camp.
