Mets shortstop Matt Reynolds making push for opening day roster
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mets prospect Matt Reynolds has not taken long to get acclimated to life in the pros this spring. General manager Sandy Alderson thinks he's close to making the roster, reports the New York Post.

"He's probably not that far away from playing in the major leagues," Alderson said Saturday. "He looks solid, confident in the infield, so he's done a nice job."

Reynolds, who hit a walkoff home run Friday, is making it a tough decision between he and Ruben Tejada.

"I came in here with the attitude I'm going to compete my [butt] off to try to win the job," Reynolds said. "I am just going to come here and compete every day, and by me competing I’m making Flo' better, I'm making Tejada better and vice versa. By us competing together it makes us stronger and better players."

Alderson wouldn't say if Reynolds would still make the team if he doesn't win the starting job.

"People try to pigeon-hole players as utility guys, and that's not fair," Alderson said. "We're going to let it play out and see what happens. We're happy to have him. He’s a nice player."

Mets will give Matt Reynolds at long look at short this spring
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Mets will give Matt Reynolds a long look at shortstop this spring, according to NJ.com.

Reynolds, 24, had a strong season in the minors, hitting .343 over two levels. While Reynolds isn't expected to make the big-league club straight out of camp, manager Terry Collins wants to see what Reynolds can do. "We're going to take a good hard look at him at shortstop," Collins said.

The Mets enter the year somewhat unsettled at the shortstop position. Wilmer Flores is expected to open the season as the team's starter, but it's unclear whether he has a defensive chops to stick at the position. Reynolds may not be ready for the majors yet, but could make an impact if Flores falters early.

Mets will take 'good, hard look' at Matt Reynolds
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Mets have a crowded shortstop situation, but manager Terry Collins will make sure that prospect Matt Reynolds gets plenty of playing time. 

Despite having Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada in front of him on the depth chart, Reynolds will get "a good, hard look," during spring training games. 

"He's going to get a lot of playing time," Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. "I've read all of the reports. And one of the things that stands out about Matt is that every report you read, somewhere in the report it talks about him being a baseball player."

The Mets chose Reynolds in the second round of the 2012 draft. He reached Triple-A last year, in his third season of pro ball, hitting .333 with 14 stolen bases in 68 games.

Mets expecting infield prospect Matt Reynolds to open year in minors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday he anticipates infield prospect Matt Reynolds to open the 2015 season in the minors, per ESPN.

"Reynolds is not on the roster. I expect he will be invited to spring training," Alderson said. "We’ll see how he does in the spring. But, if I had to bet right now, I’d say he ends up probably back in (Triple-A) Las Vegas. 

“You know, if you look at his track record at the minor-league level, last year was an outstanding year. But it wasn’t an outstanding year on top of an outstanding year on top of an outstanding year. So I think there’s probably more experience that’s necessary there. He’s certainly someone we like middle to long-term."

Reynolds hit .343 with a .405 on-base percentage, .454 slugging percentage and .859 OPS in 126 games between Double-A and Triple-A last season. He also had six home runs, seven triples, 21 doubles, 61 RBI, 87 runs and 20 stolen bases.
