Reynolds cleared waivers Tuesday and was outrighted to the Royals' alternate training site.
Reynolds was designated for assignment Saturday, but he'll remain in the organization after failing to secure a spot on another 40-man roster. The 29-year-old went 0-for-11 during his four days on the major-league roster this year.
Reynolds was designated for assignment by the Royals on Saturday.
Reynolds spent just four days on the Royals' roster, going 0-for-11. The move clears space for Kelvin Gutierrez (elbow) to return from the 45-day injured list.
Reynolds will start at third base and will bat sixth Wednesday against the Indians, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.
Reynolds was called up from the alternate site Tuesday and started in the Royals' 8-6 win over the Indians, going 0-for-3 with a run scored. In the lineup for the second straight day against a right-handed pitcher (Carlos Carrasco), Reynolds could get at extended trial at the hot corner while Maikel Franco fills in as the Royals' designated hitter in place of the injured Jorge Soler (oblique).
Reynolds' contract was selected by the Royals on Tuesday.
Reynolds will join the active roster with Jorge Soler (oblique) landing on the injured list in a corresponding move. Reynolds owns a career .223/.295/.340 slash line in 240 plate appearances, the most recent of which came in 2018, so he's likely to be limited to a bench role during his time with the club.
Reynolds cleared MLB's COVID-19 protocol and reported for summer training Sunday, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.
The 29-year-old was missing during the first few weeks of camp for unspecified reasons, but he was able to join the team for the final stretch before the regular season. Reynolds could be a factor as a utility infielder for the Royals in 2020, but the delayed start to camp may mean he's not game ready with Opening Day less than a week away.
The Royals placed Reynolds on the 10-day injured list Saturday due to an unspecified issue.
Reynolds was one of three Royals moved to the IL, with no explanation for any of the transactions provided by the team. Salvador Perez later told reporters Saturday that his placement on the IL was the result of a positive COVID-19 test, but neither Reynolds nor Meibrys Viloria has shed light on the nature of his absence. Reynolds had previously joined the Royals on a minor-league deal in November and attended spring training as a non-roster invitee, but Kansas City has since added him to the 40-man roster. Once he's deemed available, Reynolds could be in the mix for a utility infield role with the big club.
Reynolds will be a part of the Royals' 60-man player pool this season, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.
The 29-year-old journeyman was in camp as a non-roster invitee prior to the shutdown. He has a .223/.295/.340 slash line in 240 career MLB plate appearances.
Reynolds signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Saturday.
After seeing some major-league action in the three years prior to 2019, Reynolds played solely with Triple-A Fresno last season. He hit .295/.401/.521 with 16 home runs and 55 RBI over 111 games in 2019. The 28-year-old will likely serve as organizational depth within the Royals organization, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him get some playing time in the majors given his past experience.
Reynolds was outrighted to Triple-A Fresno on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Reynolds will head to Triple-A after passing through waivers untouched. Over parts of three major-league seasons (240 plate appearances), the 28-year-old owns a lackluster .223/.295/.340 slash line. Look for him to serve as organizational depth in 2019.
Reynolds was designated for assignment Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
The Nationals needed a 40-man roster spot for new addition Brian Dozier, and Reynolds wound up being the roster casualty. The 28-year-old spent little time in the big leagues last season and only holds a .635 OPS in 240 career major-league plate appearances, but he played every position besides pitcher and catcher in the minors. He figures to act as an organizational depth piece moving forward.
Reynolds was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
He hasn't done much in 240 career plate appearances in the majors (.223/.295/.340), but has been slightly better at Triple-A this year, slashing .259/.355/.410 with two home runs in 245 plate appearances. Reynolds will continue to serve as organizational infield depth.
The Nationals recalled Reynolds from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.
Reynolds will take the spot vacated by Anthony Rendon's placement on the paternity list. Rendon should rejoin the big club in just a few days, at which point Reynolds will likely head back to the minors.
Reynolds was sent to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Reynolds had been up since early April, appearing in 10 games but making just one start. He had just one hit in 13 plate appearances. Adrian Sanchez will take his role as a utility infielder on the major-league roster.
Reynolds was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
The Nationals wanted an extra bench bat with Adam Eaton (ankle) day-to-day. Reynolds is capable of playing the corner outfield spots as well as all four infield positions. He has a career .228/.300/.351 slash line in 226 MLB plate appearances.
The Nationals optioned Reynolds to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Reynolds joined the Nationals in February after being designated for assignment by the Mets and was aiming to crack the Opening Day roster as a utility infielder. The 25-year-old could earn a promotion to the majors if he can replicate his Triple-A slash line of .320/.396/.484 from last season, as Wilmer Difo will fill the super-utility role for Washington.
Reynolds was acquired by the Nationals on Monday in exchange for cash considerations, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Reynolds had a subpar 2017 season with the Mets. He slashed .230/.326/.301 over 68 games while logging just four extra-base hits. Should he appear in the majors with his new club, Reynolds would likely provide depth in a utility role, as he has experience playing first base, second base, third base, shortstop and the outfield.
Reynolds was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.
Reynolds was cast off the 40-man roster due to the club's recent signing of third baseman Todd Frazier. In 2017, Reynolds appeared in 68 games with the Mets, slashing a mediocre .230/.326/.301 with one home run and five RBI in 113 at-bats. He will serve as added depth during this upcoming campaign, but should be back at the Triple-A level for most of the season.
Reynolds was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and is starting at third base for Thursday's game against the Yankees, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.
Reynolds was summoned back to the big club to take the place of Jose Reyes, who was sent to the DL with a left oblique strain, and the team will waste no time inserting him into the starting lineup. The 26-year-old saw just 49 at-bats during his earlier stints with the Mets this season -- producing a .204/.264/.306 slash line with one homer -- but he should be in line for more consistent opportunities this time around with Reyes and Wilmer Flores (ribs) both dealing with injuries.
Reynolds was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
The 26-year-old was barely playing in the big leagues, and in his few instances of playing time, he only managed to produce a .204 batting average in New York. With top prospect Amed Rosario joining the big-league team, there's simply no room for Reynolds in the majors right now, so he'll likely act as organizational depth until rosters expand in September.
Reynolds was called up Wednesday prior to New York's game against the Marlins, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Reynolds has been up and down a few times already this season, with the most recent transaction coming a week ago when the 26-year-old was optioned back to Triple-A Las Vegas. During his five-game stint with Las Vegas this past week, Reynolds went 7-for-20 with three home runs and five RBI from the plate. The infielder will supply more depth for the Mets, with Robert Gsellman hitting the disabled list due to a left hamstring strain.
