Originally written October 06, 2012 on MLB Injury News:
In a moment eerily similar to when Nick Markakis fractured his thumb, Mark Reynolds was hit in the hand by a Yu Darvish pitch in the top of the second inning. He went to the ground and a team trainer checked him out, but Reynolds was able to remain in the game. He actually went on to steal second base even though he had only one successful steal all season long before that.

It is his left hand actually. Reynolds is a tough guy. Was in obvious pain. Is talking with head athletic trainer Richie Bancells and Buck.

The Orioles managed to knock off the two-time defending American League Champion Texas Rangers in the one-game WilD Card playoff. Baltimore won 5-1 and will move on to the play the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series.

There was no update on Reynolds after the game, but he was never removed from the action. He should be good to go for the Division Series.

Reynolds will be a key part of any success the Orioles have against the Yankees. He hits for power and can utilize the dimensions of Yankee Stadium. Reynolds hit 23 home runs this season.
