Greg Reynolds, who was once the No. 2 overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Rockies, has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Reds.
At this point Reynolds is little more than minor-league filler despite still being just 27 years old. Reynolds has a 7.47 ERA in 94 career innings as a big leaguer and a 4.88 ERA in the minors. He basically never looked like much of a prospect, which is pretty tough to do as college pitcher who was the second overall pick.
Actually, that whole 2006 draft is very interesting. Reynolds was a total bust and No. 1 pick Luke Hochevar hasn’t been much better, posting a 5.39 ERA. But then No. 3 pick Evan Longoria, No. 7 pick Clayton Kershaw, and No. 10 pick Tim Lincecum have become stars. And the first round also included quasi-stars Brandon Morrow, Max Scherzer, and Ian Kennedy.
