Middle infielder Matt Reynolds is headed to Triple-A Las Vegas as part of system-wide promotions at the midpoint of the minor-league season.
Reynolds, 23, is a second-round pick out of the University of Arkansas in 2012.
He was hitting .355 with one homer and 21 RBIs in 211 at-bats at Double-A Binghamton. Reynolds also had a .430 on-base percentage.
Five members of the St. Lucie Mets were also promoted to Double-A Binghamton after the Florida State League team was eliminated from claiming a postseason berth on the final day of the first half.
2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo, Long Island native Steven Matz, Bronx native T.J. Rivera, ex-Pirates prospect Dilson Herrera and closer Randy Fontanez all were promoted, according to TCPalm.com reporter Jon Santucci
