Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Greg Reynolds was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the first round of the 2006 amateur draft, the second player taken overall, after Luke Hochevar. He was signed by scout Todd Blyleven for $3.25 million and made his pro debut that year with the Modesto Nuts, going 2-1 with a 3.33 ERA in 11 starts. He made 8 starts for the Tulsa Drillers in 2007, going 4-1 with a 1.42 ERA and 35 strikeouts before his season was ended by a right shoulder injury.

Reynolds began 2008 with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, where he went 1-2 with a 4.86 ERA in 7 starts. He was recalled by the Rockies in May and made his big league debut against the San Diego Padres on May 11th, taking the loss after throwing 5 2/3 innings. He made 13 starts in 14 appearances that year, but with disappointing results - a record of 2-8, 8.13, allowing 83 hits in 62 innings. He was back in Colorado Springs in 2009 but made only one start on April 9th before being shut down with an arm injury. He started 2010 still on the disabled list, then began a rehabilitation with the Modesto A's in May, going 1-0, 0.82 in 2 starts. He went back to Colorado Springs where he made 17 starts the remainder of the season, with a record of 7-6, 5.22. He then spent 2011 on a shuttle between Denver and Colorado Springs, making five discrete stints in the big leagues. In AAA, he was 6-7, 6.81 in 17 starts, and in the majors the results weren't much better. He made 13 appearances, 3 of them starts, and although he was 3-0, his ERA was a fat 6.19. In 32 innings, he gave up 40 hits and 10 walks while striking out 18.

On January 5, 2012, Reynolds was traded to the Texas Rangers in return for 1B Chad Tracy.

In 2014, he signed with the Seibu Lions. He started their third game, against the defending champion Rakuten Golden Eagles, squaring off with Wataru Karashima. He allowed 7 hits and two walks in 6 innings, fanning six and was charged with three runs (all unearned) in a loss; errors by Fumikazu Kimura and Yuji Onizaki helped do him in.
