Infielder Mikey Reynolds signed
After the departure of Travis Garcia to the Mexican League on the eve of the season opener, some much needed infield depth has arrived for the Revolution. Infielder Mikey Reynolds is now under contract, a third-year pro who has primarily played second base.
Reynolds, 24, was selected by the Atlanta Braves out of Texas A&M in the fifth round of the 2013 draft. In his professional debut, he hit .309 that season for the Danville Braves of the Appalachian League in rookie ball. That followed a .342 showing in 61 games his senior year at A&M. The rights to Reynolds were held by Fargo-Moorhead of the American Association; he was traded to York for a player to be named later.
Room was created on the Revolution roster after two players were made inactive following a 5-2 loss at home against Long Island on April 26; RHP Kyle Heckathorn left that game with an injury to his pitching arm and OF Desmond Henry returned home to Los Angeles due to personal reasons. They join LHP Edward Paredes (elbow tendinitis) on the York inactive list.
