Yankees considering Mark Reynolds
The Yankees expected that a major part of their stay at the Winter Meetings would revolve around obtaining a replacement for the injured Alex Rodriguez at third base.
It hasn’t seemed to be the easiest assignment for general manager Brian Cashman, but the Yankees have continued to search, most recently turning their interest to free agent Mark Reynolds.
According to a source, Cashman met with Reynolds’ agent on Wednesday and the free-swinging slugger is said to be intrigued by the Yankees.
Reynolds, 29, was non-tendered by the Orioles after batting .221 with 23 home runs and 69 RBIs in 135 games this year. He was a Yankee killer, collecting seven homers and 14 RBIs against Bombers pitching alone.
Reynolds earned $7.5 million and is seeking a similar salary for 2013, but he is thought to be amenable to a one-year contract.
