Reynolds Unlikely To Return To Yankees

Mark Reynolds is unlikely to return to the Yankees, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News tweets, citing a source who says the Yanks have only offered the infielder a minor-league deal. "He won't take that," Feinsand says.

Reynolds, 30, clubbed six homers for the Yankees in 36 games after they brought him on in August, compiling a .236/.300/.455 line in New York overall. While that OBP is a step down from Reynolds' .329 career average, it's generally a vintage Reynolds line: big power and a low batting average fueled by one of the game's highest strikeout rates. Some have speculated that the Bombers might try to re-up with Reynolds now that they can be certain Alex Rodriguez won't be manning third base for the club in 2014. However, it now appears that they're not interested in anything beyond a minimal commitment.

Stephen Drew is the top left-side infielder remaining on the free agent market, though the Red Sox extended him a qualifying offer. Michael Young is another option, and the Yanks already have Kelly Johnson in the fold.
