The Rangers made a trade on Thursday, acquiring right-handed pitcher Greg Reynolds for infielder Chad Tracy. Reynolds was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock. Tracy is the son of current Rockies manager Jim Tracy.
The 26-year-old was taken second overall by the Rockies in the 2006 draft and had five separate stints in the majors last season. He was 3-0 with a 6.19 ERA (22 earned runs in 32 innings) in 13 games (three starts) for the Rockies. He spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Colorado Springs and was 6-7 with a 6.81 ERA in 19 games (all starts). He was outrighted off Colorado's 40-man roster on Oct. 5.
Tracy, also 26, spent all of 2011 in Triple-A Round Rock. He hit .259 with 26 homers and 109 RBIs and his RBI total was a new single-season record for Round Rock. He was a third-round selection in 2006 and a non-roster invitee to spring training the last two seasons.
