The Yankees need a third baseman at a price they are willing to pay which is why Mark Reynolds is getting their attention.
But while Reynolds does hit homers, 181 in his career including 23 this past season, he strikes out...a lot.
Here are the locations of Reynolds 159 2012 strikeouts
And if it seems as if he's chasing a lot of pitches, you are correct.
Since 2008, Reynolds has hit .277 at Yankee Stadium
But in 151 plate appearances in New York, he has 20 walks and 49 whiffs.
But the Yankees need to replace homers and they need an affordable option, but these strikeout figures don't even address Reynolds iron glove.
