Reynolds alum Sam Runion is a pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization.

Reynolds graduate Sam Runion was tantalizingly close to being a major league pitcher for the first time last summer.

Apparently, the Washington Nationals agree.

Runion and the Nationals have agreed to a new minor-league contract that will keep Runion in the organization — he had become a free agent after going 6-5 with a 2.91 earned-run average and 60 strikeouts in 65 innings pitched. Runion ended his ninth pro season with Triple-A Syracuse (N.Y.) where he won his last two appearances (Sept. 3 and Sept. 5).

He was assigned to Syracuse’s 2016 team on Wednesday.

Runion, 27, is a right-handed pitcher who was originally drafted out of high school with a second-round pick by the Kansas City Royals in 2007.
