According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Mark Reynolds has signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Indians for $6 million. This was also reported by the Baltimore Sun last night. Should we be devastated? Not really. Reynolds seemed to be a good guy, play hard and played some very good first base after being moved from third; however, the Orioles didn’t seem to want him. I would think Reynolds’ bat was a big problem with the decision-makers in the organization. At times, he could hit homers un bunches (notably against the Yankees), but one could count on him to have a low batting average, strike out a ton and walk a bit. However, the Orioles could have used his power heading into 2013, but they do have some options on the market – notably, Adam LaRoche. Right now, Chris Davis will more than likely start at the position, unless the Orioles make a move on the free agent market or via trade. In the end, the Orioles will do just fine without Reynolds. They’ll find someone to replace him; however, it’s very strange that the organization after a winning season has not done more to improve. Then again, there’s still plenty of time before Spring Training. Any opinions?
