Rockies’ Reynolds relishes relief role

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Many people forget about Matt Reynolds and the impact he had at Austin Peay.  Of course, he pitched in the long shadow cast by two of the greatest pitchers in Austin Peay history. But at 6-5, 240 pounds, Reynolds certainly now casts a shadow of his own.

But there he is, night after night, putting in his work. In fact, he’s tied for 16th among MLB relievers with 41 appearances, which just happens to be tops for the Rockies.
