If you are hoping that the Minnesota Twins will sign someone to push Trevor Plouffe a little bit at third while Miguel Sano waits in the wings, you might be in luck, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

The man who never uses capitalization on Twitter reports that the Minnesota Twins are one of a handful of teams that have been ‘in on’ Mark Reynolds.

Reynolds split last year between the Cleveland Indians and the New York Yankees, splitting much of his playing time between first base and third base: 65 games at first, 54 games at third and 20 at DH.

Reynolds hit 21 home runs last year between the two American League squads, but that’s about where the positives end for 30-year-old right hander. Last season he hit .220/.306/.393.

Career numbers aren’t shockingly better than last season’s numbers: .233/.329/.464 and averages 33 home runs and 93 RBI per 162 games.

Reynolds has played in 988 games in his career, appearing in 709 at third and 251 at first.
