Mark Reynolds Trade Reported With Baltimore Orioles For Two Bullpen Arms

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been rumored to be in the market to trade Mark Reynolds for some time and now those rumors seem to be coming to fruition. ESPN's Buster Olney has reported that the trade is done with Reynolds going to the Baltimore Orioles for two right-handed pitching prospects, David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio.

Hernandez, 25, was drafted by the Orioles in the 16th round of the 2005 draft and has an ERA of 4.93 with 180 innings pitched over the past two seasons. He's a power pitcher with a high-90's fast ball that the Diamondbacks are expected to use in a late innings role.

Mickolio, 26, was drafted by the Mariners in the 18th round of the 2006 draft. He's a big kid at 6-foot-9 who has a 3.67 ERA in the minor leagues and a career 4.32 ERA in the majors with only 25 innings pitched. 

Reynolds will be taking his error-prone defense and MLB recording-setting strikeout totals to the Orioles where the D-backs can only hope that he doesn't get his act together and turn into the kind of power bat every team needs.
