The Giants have signed left-handed reliever Matt Reynolds to a minor league contract with a non-roster invitation to spring training, according to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick (Twitter links). San Francisco previously designated Reynolds for assignment in late September.
A few months after the Diamondbacks released Reynolds last March, the Giants purchased his contract from Lancaster of the independent Atlantic League in June. He ended up throwing a combined 24 2/3 innings at three levels with the San Francisco organization in 2016, though only six of those frames came in the majors. Reynolds yielded five earned runs on seven hits and five walks during that limited sample of work.
Before joining the Giants, Reynolds totaled 167 innings with the Rockies and D-backs from 2010-15 and pitched to a 3.66 ERA with 8.57 K/9 against 2.8 BB/9. Reynolds underwent Tommy John surgery in early 2014 and missed the entire season as a result. He has since tallied just 19 2/3 major league innings.
