The Giants had designated Reynolds for assignment near the end of last season, but he'll stick with the organization and get an opportunity to compete for an Opening Day roster spot, as his minor-league deal will include an invitation to spring training. The 32-year-old lefty made only eight appearances for the big club last season, put tossed 18.2 scoreless innings across stints at Double-A and Triple-A.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2013
2012
Reynolds did not pitch in 2014 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September of 2013. He began facing live hitters in mid-August, and the Diamondbacks saw enough progress in his rehab to renew his contract for 2015. Although he's not a hard thrower, Reynolds is able to get hitters to swing and miss with his slider and changeup, and he did a good job keeping hitters off balance with those offerings in his first season with Arizona in 2013. With good health, he should be able to secure a place as a left-handed setup option during spring training. However, it's difficult to envision a scenario where Reynolds does more than vulture the occasional save.
Though his ERA and WHIP might not have reflected it, Reynolds made some improvements in his second full season in the big leagues, most notably in dropping his BB/9 from 3.2 to 2.7 while also yielding a higher percentage of groundballs, which is no small feat in light of his home park. The improvements came all while Reynolds provided a serviceable K/9 rate (8.0), making him one of the team's more reliable setup men last season. At 28, Reynolds still has room for growth, especially if he can pitch more effectively against right-handers (.306 BAA) as he did in 2011 while seeing last season's .319 BABIP fall more in line with league average.
Reynolds chipped away in middle relief all season long, avoiding a stint at Triple-A by cruising along with a serviceable 4.09 ERA. Although he doesn't overpower hitters, Reynolds nearly struck out a batter per inning (8.88 K/9IP) last season working with a three-pitch arsenal. Setup duty may not be in his future, however, as his flyball tendencies will prove costly at Coors Field (1.78 HR/9IP). Still, it looks like Reynolds could stick again in 2012 if he's able to offset the expected normalization of his strand rate (81 percent) with improved control (3.20 BB/9IP).
