Mets add Matt Reynolds to playoff roster to replace Ruben Tejada
The New York Mets have added shortstop Matt Reynolds to their postseason roster to replace Ruben Tejada, who sustained a broken fibula in Game 2 of the NLDS as a result of a takeout slide from Dodgers infielder Chase Utley.
Reynolds, the team’s No. 7 prospect, wasn’t considered for promotion when rosters expanded in September, and wasn’t even included on the team’s 40-man roster at the time. He was sent to the Mets’ Port St. Lucie facility at the conclusion of the Triple A season.
He hit .267 in 445 at-bats this season with Triple A Las Vegas with six homers and 65 RBIs.
The Mets host the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS at 8:30 p.m. ET on Monday.
