Gregory Adam Reynolds is a professional American baseball player who plays as a pitcher. A graduate of the Terra Nova High School, Reynolds decided to go directly into the MLB instead of playing through four years of college. Initially, his decision seemed concrete but after being picked in the 41st round by the Philadelphia Phillies at the 2003 MLB Draft, he decided to opt for college.
Reynolds went to Stanford University and played collegiate ball for four years, declaring for the 2006 MLB Draft upon graduation. Reynolds was one of the biggest stars in collegiate baseball and was widely considered to be a probable top pick at the Draft. Reynolds didn’t disappoint and he was picked second overall, by the Colorado Rockies at the 2006 MLB Draft.
Two years in the minor leagues were spent in honing the skills and prepare for the big debut in May 2008 against the San Diego Padres. Reynolds allowed 4 earned runs while giving away 6 hits in all, after pitching for 5.2 innings.
It wasn’t until June 2008 that Reynolds picked up his first win. He continues to be a part of the starting rotation for the Colorado Rockies although his appearances have been limited primarily due to his lack of experience at the big league, something that will come with time.
