Reynolds was called up to the Mets during the 2015 National League Championship Series to replace the injured Rubén Tejada.
The first time this has happened in postseason baseball history, he became the first player with no previous major-league experience to be added to a team midway through a series.
In addition, he joined Chet Trail (of the New York Yankees in the 1964 World Series (not on the active roster)) and Mark Kiger as the only players in modern baseball history to be included on a playoff roster without prior major-league experience (of the Oakland Athletics in the 2006 American League Championship Series).
There were no playoff games in which he appeared, and he was dropped off the World Series roster.
Reynolds was called up to the big leagues by the Mets on May 17th, 2016. When he made his major league debut with the Mets, he was playing third base.
He was 0-1 with a single strikeout in his first three outings. After a single against Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark on May 25, Reynolds made his major league debut.
Wilmer Flores, who had been on the disabled list, was able to return to the lineup thanks to Reynolds’ demotion to the 51s.
It was Reynolds’ first time playing in a major league game that saw him feature in eight games. His batting average was a dismal.100.
After David Wright was placed on the disabled list on June 3, Reynolds was summoned once more.
Reynolds’ first Major League home run came against reliever Joakim Soria on June 22, when he started and played in the outfield for the first time in his professional career.
He had a .225/.266/.416 slash line in 2016. The Hospital for Special Surgery performed a right wrist debridement on him on December 12th, 2016.
