According to the Rockies’ official Twitter feed, Colorado has acquired infielder Chad Tracy from the Rangers for right-handed pitcher Greg Reynolds.
Chad, the son of Rockies manager Jim Tracy, was a third-round pick in the 2006 MLB Amateur Draft. He posted a .259/.339/.475 batting line with 26 home runs and 109 RBI in 134 games last year at Triple-A Round Rock, playing primarily at first base.
Reynolds, a former No. 2 overall pick, has registered a disappointing 7.47 career ERA and 1.69 career WHIP in 94 major league innings. The 26-year-old has fared only slightly better in the minor leagues but will look to finally maximize his talent with a change of scenery.
