The Washington Nationals have added another infielder to the ranks, as the team has acquired Matt Reynolds from the New York Mets in exchange for cash considerations.
The trade comes five days after Reynolds was designated for assignment by the Mets in order to clear a spot on the roster for free agent signing Todd Frazier. Reynolds, selected by the Mets in the second round of the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft, played in a total of 115 major league games during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
For his career, Reynolds has a .228 batting average with four home runs, 18 runs batted in and a .652 OPS. Three of Reynolds’ career home runs were hit during his rookie season of 2016.
Reynolds played in 68 games for the Mets last season, hitting .230 with one home run, five runs batted in and a .626 OPS. From a fielding standpoint, Reynolds saw time at six different positions in 2017, with the Mets using him at all four infield and both corner outfield spots. Reynolds’ lone error came at shortstop, where all three of the errors he’s committed in his brief major league career have occurred.
In addition to his time with the Mets, Matt Reynolds appeared in 33 games for the team’s Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas. With Las Vegas, Reynolds hit .320 with four home runs, 14 runs batted in and a .880 OPS. Reynolds made his debut at the Triple-A level during the 2014 season, where he spent the majority of his time before his first call-up to the majors during the 2016 season.
