Yankees rumors: NY among teams pursuing Mark Reynolds

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The Bronx Bombers met with the third baseman's agent in Nashville today.

On the prowl for third base help, the New York Yankees met with with free-agent third baseman Mark Reynolds today, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com:

New York has checked in on several of the available third basemen, including Jeff Keppinger and the now unavailable Eric Chavez, but Reynolds may be a nice draw because the he is likely to take a one-year deal. The Yankees seem set on keeping their 2014 payroll below the $189 million luxury tax threshold, and so have yet to sign a player this fall beyond 2013.

The Yanks are not the only team to check in on Reynolds. The Marlins have expressed interest in the righty slugger, and Britt Ghiroli of MLB.com reports that several other clubs have met with Reynolds' agent in Nashville as well.

Reynolds bounced between first, third and DH in 2012 -- his second season in Baltimore -- hitting .221/.325/.429 with 23 home runs in 135 games. The righty slugger struggled to find his power stroke this past season, failing to top 30 home runs for the first time since 2008.
