Quick hit: Claiborne sent down to make room for Reynolds

According to the beat writers, Preston Claiborne is not on the roster for this weekend’s series in Boston which means send down to AAA to make room for Mark Reynolds.

Interesting development but the rosters expand in just over two weeks so he’ll be back.

UPDATE 3:51 P.M.: From Sweeny Murti via Twitter Mark Reynolds is batting 8th and playing 1B.
