During an appearance on MLB Network Thursday, Mark Reynolds announced his retirement.


"I've moved on. I've retired," Reynolds said when asked about his free-agent status by Steve Torre and Danny Kanell. "I guess it's breaking news on your show. I haven't really told - I mean, obviously my family and friends know. You know, with all this going on ... I'm really enjoying time with my family and it's time for me to move on and find something else to do."

The 36-year-old spent four years with the Arizona Diamondbacks after they drafted him in the 16th round in 2004 Amateur Draft.

In 2009, he received MVP votes after hitting 44 homers and swiping 24 bases in 155 games.


Reynolds hit 298 home runs while playing both corner infield positions across his 13-year career.



The Kentucky Native played for eight different clubs during his MLB tenure. Suiting up for the Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, Baltimore Orioles, St. Louis Cardinals, Milwaukee Brewers, Cleveland Indians, Washington Nationals and New York Yankees.
