Cincinnati Reds Place Infielder On Waivers

To the waiver wire.

The Cincinnati Reds have designated infielder Matt Reynolds for assignment.

This past season, Reynolds slashed a pedestrian .246/.320/.332, with three home runs, 23 RBIs, five stolen bases and 31 runs scored over 92 games as a utility infielder for the Reds. 

The Reds would probably prefer to keep him around, as he provides some versatility on the defensive side of the field.

For his five-year career, the thirty-two-year-old owns a .230/.302/.328 triple-slash line, with seven home runs, 42 RBIs, five stolen bases and 56 runs scored over 223 games. He's spent time with the New York Mets, Washington Nationals, Kansas City Royals and the Reds.

A team may take a flier on Reynolds as some added infield depth.

He is a former second-round pick by the Mets in the 2012 MLB Draft.
