Last week, Mark Reynolds was signed by the Colorado Rockies in free agency, marking the sixth team he'll play for in five years.
While he's bounced around quite a bit since a four-year stint with the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2007-10, Reynolds believes he'll meld well with his new home in Colorado.
"I see it as a good fit for me, and if I play well I'll have a good opportunity to get a lot of at-bats in, obviously, a great place to hit," Reynolds told MLB.com. "When I played in the NL West when I was with Arizona, Denver seemed like a great city, then I mentioned it to Matt Holliday and he had a lot of great things to say about the city and the organization. His wife and my wife are good friends, and from what they said, I'm excited to get there."
Reynolds primarily played first base for the St. Louis Cardinals last season, but displayed his versatility by fielding a handful of other positions, including third base, second base, and the two corner outfield positions.
As a member of the Rockies, Reynolds expects to play first, outfield, and even third base as well.
"[Manager Walt Weiss] let me know that he sees a lot of at-bats for me at first base, or in the outfield or at third if Nolan [Arenado] needs a day [off], and he likes the fact I can hit some homers," Reynolds said. "So, opportunity is there for me, and that's all I can ask at this point of my career: To prove I can be the type of hitter I know I can be."
