SECAUCUS, N.J. – Former ULM baseball player Nathan Reynolds was selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2017 MLB Draft on Wednesday afternoon in the 39th round with the 1162nd overall pick. Reynolds, who played both the infield and the outfield as a Warhawk, was selected as a shortstop by the Diamondbacks.

A Corvallis, Oregon native, Reynolds made 91 career starts and played in 95 games overall over his two-year career as a Warhawk. Over his ULM career, he tallied 15 multi-hit games, including a pair of three-hit contests – at Western Carolina in 2016 and this year at Alabama. He tallied a .225 batting average over the last two seasons in Monroe, finishing with 48 career RBI along 24 doubles, a triple and five home runs in that span. In the field, he has played both the infield and outfield, tallying a .904 fielding percentage overall.

The Reynolds family is no stranger to professional baseball, as Nathan's uncles, Harold and Donnie, each played professionally. Harold Reynolds played 13 professional seasons, spending time with the Seattle Mariners (1983-92), the California Angels (1993) and the Baltimore Orioles (1994), while Donnie Reynolds played in the San Diego Padres organization for four years.
