Matthew Paul Reynolds (born October 2, 1984) is a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Professional career[edit]

Reynolds was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 20th round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft.

Reynolds was called up to the majors for the first time on August 19, 2010.[1]

He was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks on November 20, 2012 in exchange for Ryan Wheeler. On June 10, 2013, Reynolds was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left elbow strain. On September 24, Reynolds underwent Tommy John surgery, sidelining him for at least most of 2014.[2] In 30 games in 2013, Reynolds went 0-2 with 5 holds, 2 saves and a 1.98 ERA, striking out 23 in 27.1 innings.

On October 15, 2013, Reynolds signed a one-year, $550,000 deal with a $600,000 club option for 2015.[3]
