Duquette made the impression that there wasn't a spot for Reynolds with Valencia in the fold, yet there is a spot for Morse with Betemit and Valencia in the fold?
Correct if i'm wrong but wasn't New York lower in the standings, meaning they had the option of signing him before the Orioles due to their record at the time? I probably am wrong and maybe that has to do with a waiver claim.

I could be the wrong one. It's all moot and hopefully Morse can hit some meaningful dingers in Camden Yards.
Indians To Release Mark Reynolds
By Steve Adams [August 12, 2013 at 1:22pm CST]
MONDAY: The Indians have requested release waivers on Reynolds for the purpose of granting him his unconditional release, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer (Twitter link). Once Reynolds clears waivers, he will be eligible to sign with any team, and his new club will be responsible for only the pro-rated portion of the league minimum.
THURSDAY: The Indians have designated Mark Reynolds for assignment, according to MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli (on Twitter). Right-hander Preston Guilmet, who had a 1.95 ERA with 10.4 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 in 55 1/3 innings at Triple-A Columbus, will be recalled to take his roster spot.
