Reynolds was outrighted to Triple-A Fresno on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Reynolds will head to Triple-A after passing through waivers untouched. Over parts of three major-league seasons (240 plate appearances), the 28-year-old owns a lackluster .223/.295/.340 slash line. Look for him to serve as organizational depth in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
Those riding the Triple-A shuttle usually endure several uncomfortable bus trips. At least Reynolds racked up a lot of frequent flyer miles jetting between Queens and Sin City. For the second straight season, Reynolds bounced between the Mets and the Las Vegas 51s multiple times as injuries hit the big club hard. The Mets were prescient as they had Reynolds playing a lot of outfield on the farm in April, adding chasing flies to his ability to play all around the infield. This is likely Reynolds' future -- someone filling in all over the diamond as his bat doesn't look like it will mature enough to be a regular. In 130 plate appearances last season, Reynolds had a higher OBP than SLG, but he did post a .320/.396/.484 line in Triple-A. Because he could earn eligibility at four spots, Reynolds is in play as a reserve in deep NL-only formats if he heads north as the utility man.
An injury to Ruben Tejada earned Reynolds a spot on the team's playoff roster in 2015, but with everyone back and healthy the following year, he didn't crack the Opening Day roster and instead headed back to Triple-A. He made several trips back and forth between the majors and minors throughout the season, but he didn't look overly impressive at the plate at either stop. He seemed especially overmatched against major league pitching, as he struck out in a whopping 35.4 percent of his plate appearances over 47 games. The hope is that these were just growing pains in his first cup of coffee in the big leagues, but he is starting to give off the whiff of a Quadruple-A hitter. He'll likely fight for a utility spot in spring training, but he may end up being better served getting to play every day in the minors.
Reynolds has been working his way through the Mets' minor league system, spending half of 2014 and all of 2015 at Triple-A Las Vegas. In 2014, the 25-year-old slashed an impressive .333/.385/.479. However, his numbers took a hit in 2015, hitting just .267/.319/.402. The Mets called him up in the NLDS when Ruben Tejada suffered a broken fibula, but he never saw any action. He's widely considered an average offensive prospect who is a versatile defender and the third-ranked short stop in the Mets' organization. With Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker holding down the middle infield, it is unlikely that Reynolds role would be anything other than as a utility player should he make the Mets' roster in 2016.
