Nationals acquire IF Matt Reynolds from Mets
WASHINGTON– The Washington Nationals have completed a minor move, acquiring a utility infielder from a division rival.
IF Matt Reynolds was shipped by the New York Mets to the Washington Nationals for cash considerations on Monday.
Reynolds, 27, is expected to compete for a bench role, and can also be optioned to the minor leagues.
Reynolds hasn’t had much success at the big league level, hitting only .228 with 4 HRs and 18 RBIs in spot action over the past two seasons with the Mets.
However, at Triple-A, Reynolds hit .320 last season with the Mets’ affiliate.
