Nationals acquired INF/OF Matt Reynolds from the Mets for cash considerations.
Reynolds had been designated for assignment, but he quickly landed back on his feet and will remain in the National League East. The 27-year-old utility player has hit well in the minors but sports just a .228/.300/.351 across 226 plate appearances so far at the big league level. He'll compete for a bench job with the Nats.

Mets designated INF/OF Matt Reynolds for assignment.

The Mets needed to remove someone from their 40-man roster after officially signing Todd Frazier to a two-year, $17 million contract on Thursday, and Reynolds is the odd man out. The 27-year-old utility player has hit well at the minor league level, but he slashed just .228/.300/.351 in 226 plate appearances for the Mets over the 2016-2017 seasons.

Mets recalled INF/OF Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Reynolds is starting at third base and hitting eighth Thursday night against Yankees right-hander Luis Severino. The 26-year-old utility infielder holds a .217/.265/.377 career batting line at the major league level.

Matt Reynolds is on his way to New York to join the Mets.

So is Gavin Cecchini. The Mets haven't made any roster moves yet but it may be good to have Reynolds and Cecchini handy with Jose Reyes (ribcage) and Wilmer Flores (ribcage) both hurt. The Mets were so shorthanded on Wednesday that catcher Travis d'Arnaud drew the start at third base.

Mets optioned INF/OF Matt Reynolds to Triple-A Las Vegas.

He was sent down to make room for Amed Rosario, who will make his long-awaited debut Tuesday against Colorado. Reynolds has struggled offensively this year, batting just .204 with 19 strikeouts over 49 major league at-bats.

Matt Reynolds went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Reynolds picked up a cosmetic RBI single in the ninth inning to draw the Mets to within 9-1. Probably needless to say, New York was unable to pull off the comeback. In 37 games with the big league club this season, the 26-year-old infielder is hitting just .204/.264/.306.

Mets optioned INF/OF Matt Reynolds to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Reynolds has seen 27 at-bats with the big league club this season. In that space, the 26-year-old utilityman recorded five hits, including a homer. He will serve as organizational depth down at Triple-A.

Mets recalled INF/OF Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Reynolds has batted just .174/.269/.304 in 20 games this season at the major league level. The 26-year-old utilityman carries no fantasy relevance.
Fri, Jun 16, 2017 03:14:00 PM

Matt Reynolds was scratched from Thursday's game for Triple-A Las Vegas.

It looks like he's headed to New York. Reynolds appears to be replacing Juan Lagares, who exited Thursday night's game with a fractured thumb. The 26-year-old utility man hit just .174 with one homer during a 20-game stint with the Mets earlier this year.

Mets optioned INF/OF Matt Reynolds to Triple-A Las Vegas.

The Mets needed to clear a roster spot for tonight's starter, Steven Matz. Reynolds won't be needed anyway now that Yoenis Cespedes is back from the disabled list. He hit just .171 with one homer during his 20-game stint in New York.

Mets recalled INF/OF Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Reynolds was batting .300/.364/.360 in 55 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. The versatile 26-year-old will give the Mets position player depth.
Wed, Apr 26, 2017 03:02:00 PM

Matt Reynolds is expected to join the Mets on Tuesday.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review-Journal notes that Reynolds has primarily been playing left field this season, so he could provide some insurance between the outfield and infield. The 26-year-old hit .225/.266/.416 with three homers and 13 RBI over 96 plate appearances with the Mets last season.
Tue, Apr 25, 2017 08:30:00 AM

Mets optioned INF Matt Reynolds to Triple-A Las Vegas; reassigned RHP Ben Rowen and OF Travis Taijeron to minor league camp.

Reynolds played in 47 games with the Mets last season while batting .225/.266/.416 in 96 plate appearances. He's likely to see some time again in the majors in 2017. The cut of Rowen makes it increasingly likely that Paul Sewald will be in the Opening Day bullpen.

Matt Reynolds went 3-for-4 with a homer, two RBI, and two runs scored Monday against the Reds.

Reynolds, who was just called up after Sunday’s game, slugged a solo homer to put the Mets in front in the third inning and later added an RBI single in the seventh for some insurance. Not bad for a guy who didn’t get any sleep while trying to meet the team in Cincinnati. Reynolds only got the start on Monday in order to give Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Reyes some rest and figures to serve as a bench player down the stretch.
