Just hours after officially introducing Todd Frazier as the newest member of the Mets, the club designated INF Matt Reynolds for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster.
Reynolds, 27, made his Major League debut in 2016, although he was on the Mets' 2015 NLDS playoff roster following the injury to Ruben Tejada.
Reynolds hit .230/.326/.301 in 68 games with the Mets last season. He's a .228/.300/.351 hitter with four homers and 18 RBIs in 115 big league games over parts of two seasons.
The Mets recently DFA'd LHP Josh Smoker and RHP Chasen Bradford, losing both. Smoker was dealt to the Pirates for minor league LHP Daniel Zamora while Bradford was claimed by the Mariners.
