Reynolds began the season in the Angels organization, but was released in late June after posting a horrific 31:24 K:BB ratio across 33.2 innings. His performance drastically improved when he headed to the American Association independent league, where he posted a 15.2 K/9 and a stellar 1.7 BB/9 in 14 appearances. It might be tough for the 25-year-old to crack the Opening Day roster, but the Braves are likely hoping that he'll continue to develop in their minor league system and take his high-strikeout ways to Atlanta in the near future.
Reynolds cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.
Reynolds was subject to waivers after being designated for assignment on Friday but no team pursued him so he remained with the Angels. The 25-year-old then accepted an outright on Monday to head to Triple-A Salt Lake where he will continue his 2016 season. The RHRP gave up 10 earned runs over 16 innings with Double-A Arkansas earlier this year so it will be interesting to see how he performs after moving up a level in the Angels' farm system.
Reynolds was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday.
The Angels brought Reynolds in on a waiver claim early in the season, but he struggled in 11 appearances with Double-A Arkansas (5.62 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, 15:12 K:BB), and the team decided he was no longer deserving of a spot on the 40-man roster. He will now be subjected to waivers, but the 25-year-old may ultimately accept an outright assignment back to Arkansas.
Danny Reynolds was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Sunday , and will be assigned to Double-A Arkansas, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Danny Reynolds has been designated for assignment, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Reynolds was claimed by the Houston Astros in December after posting a 4.57 ERA in 43.1 innings pitched at the Double-A level in 2015. The 24-year-old will have to spend more time developing in the minor leagues before getting a chance at the MLB level.
