The Brewers are making a push to sign Mark Reynolds, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. He is leaning towards signing with them but a deal has not yet been agreed to.

Reynolds, 30, hit .220/.306/.393 (96 OPS+) with 21 home runs in 135 games for the Indians and Yankees in 2013. He did hit .236/.300/.455 (104 OPS+) with six homers in 36 games for New York after being released by Cleveland at midseason.

The Brewers would presumably use Reynolds at first base, where they've had a revolving door since Prince Fielder left two years ago. The Mets, meanwhile, appear to be running out of possible trade partners for Ike Davis.
