D-backs’ Reynolds having tough time blocking out contract discussions

Diamondbacks third baseman Mark Reynolds told The Arizona Republic that ongoing contract talks are becoming a distraction.

Reynolds, who hit .260 with 44 homers and 102 RBIs last season, said the discussions have centered around a three-year deal. Under that scenario, Reynolds still would have one year of arbitration eligibility before becoming a free agent after the 2013 season. The two sides have set a deadline of opening day to finalize a deal.
