The Rangers traded 1B Chad Tracy for big right-handed pitcher Greg Reynolds, Thursday.

On Tuesday the Rangers bought Brandon Snyder from the Orioles and retained Brad Nelson. The two moves seemed to squeeze Chad Tracy out of a clear spot on the Round Rock queue, and Thursday the other shoe dropped, as Texas dealt Tracy to the Rockies for pitcher Greg Reynolds.

Reynolds was the second pick in the 2006 draft; Tracy was the Rangers' third round pick in that same draft. Reynolds has battled injuries and has been unable to break past the AAA level. He was dominant in 2007 for Tulsa in the Texas League, but has spent the past four seasons bouncing up and down from Colorado Springs, putting up poor numbers at each level. He's been a starter his whole career, but his 141.2 innings in 2011 were a new career high.

The Rangers will look to retrieve his pre-injury promise with the brothers-Maddux leading the way in spring training. Reynolds should open the season in the Round Rock rotation, along with top prospects Martin Perez and Neil Ramirez.
