Released 1B/3B/DH-R Mark Reynolds. [8/12]

Reynolds hit .301/.368/.651 in April with eight home runs. He's hit .187/.287/.282 with five home runs since—and the most recent long ball came in June, a bad sign for a player whose chief marketable skill is his elite thump. The Indians invariably noticed Reynolds was closing in on 400 plate appearances and decided to cut their losses ahead of time. Why 400 plate appearances? Because Reynolds would have received a cool $0.25 million for hitting that threshold. Instead he'll hit the open market, where he's going to get another job, then another one a few months later. Just don't expect him to make $6 million again anytime soon.
