The Reno Aces, in conjunction with the Arizona Diamondbacks, announced the call-up of number 15 rated prospect Jack Reinheimer, marking the infielder’s first career promotion to the Major Leagues.
In 233 games with the Aces over two seasons, Reinheimer holds the fourth-most hits collected with the Aces (250) while fifth in at bats with 874. He has collected 42 doubles, nine triples, six home runs, 92 RBI, and 31 stolen bases in 2016 and 2017 thus far. In total, he holds a Minor League career batting average of .278 over four full seasons with 592 hits, 94 doubles, 18 triples, 16 home runs, and 222 RBI.
The North Carolina native is in his second full season with Arizona after being acquired in a trade from the Seattle Mariners in June 2015 with Welington Castillo, Gabby Guerrero and Dominic Leone in exchange for Mark Trumbo and Vidal Nuno.
Reinheimer was originally selected by Seattle in the fifth round (147th overall) of the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft. He was selected as a mid-season All-Star last season with the Aces, in 2014 while in the Midwest League and in 2013 in the Northwest League.
The Reno Aces continue their homestand with a four-game set against the Nashville Sounds at Greater Nevada Field starting on Thursday, August 3. Gameone on Thursday is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase now at www.renoaces.com. Follow the club all season long on Twitter (@Aces) or like ,the team on Facebook.
