Rockies placed 1B Mark Reynolds on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamate bone injury.

Reynolds will be sidelined 4-6 weeks after having surgery to remove the bone. Ben Paulsen has replaced him on the roster and should see ample time at first base.
Aug 12 - 3:56 PM

Mark Reynolds is likely headed to the disabled list with a left hamate bone injury.

In layman's terms, he's dealing with a wrist injury. Reynolds' X-rays were "inconclusive." It's a tough loss for the Rockies, who are perilously thin at first base. Daniel Descalso handled first after Reynolds left Thursday's game against Texas and could play there regularly while Reynolds is on the shelf. Reynolds has had a surprisingly productive year for the Rockies, though predictably he's been much better at Coors Field (.312 AVG in 189 at-bats) than on the road (.250 in 172 at-bats).
Aug 11 - 6:54 PM

Mark Reynolds left Thursday's game against the Rangers with an apparent wrist injury.

He hurt himself on a swing in the seventh inning. Cristhian Adames replaced him mid at-bat with Daniel Descalso taking over at first base. Reynolds drove in a pair of runs and went 2-for-2 before exiting. He's likely headed for X-rays.

Mark Reynolds is on the bench for Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

Daniel Descalso will make the start at first base. He's batting sixth against right-hander A.J. Griffin.
Aug 9 - 12:32 PM

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday's loss.

His .279 batting average is the highest ever for the career .233 batter. Unfortunately the improved batting average comes with the loss of most of the power he was famous for several years ago. He has just 12 home runs in 100 games despite playing half his games in Coors Field.
Aug 6 - 12:44 AM

Mark Reynolds finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI versus the Dodgers on Wednesday.

It was his 12th homer in 333 at-bats. Reynolds hadn't done much at all during the last month, but with little competition at first base in Colorado, his job hasn't appeared to be in any doubt. Ben Paulsen hasn't been any good in Triple-A.
Aug 4 - 12:00 AM

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a solo homer against the Mets on Friday.

Reynolds gave the Rockies some insurance in the eighth with a rocket to left off Erik Goeddel. He’s now up to 11 homers on the year. The veteran slugger has surprised with a .274/.350/.445 batting line through 94 games this season, though he has unsurprisingly done most of his damage at Coors Field.
Jul 29 - 10:58 PM

Mark Reynolds blasted a walk-off two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Rockies to a 9-7 victory over the Diamondbacks.

The Rockies clubbed four home runs in total on the afternoon, with Trevor Story's game-tying blast in the seventh and Reynolds' game winner proving to be the difference. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and also delivered a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. He has been a very valuable addition to the Rockies lineup this season, slashing a healthy .291/.356/.462 with eight long balls and 31 RBI.
Jun 26 - 7:59 PM

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Reynolds connected for a solo homer off Zack Greinke in the second inning. It was his seventh homer of the year and pushed his RBI total to 28. The veteran first baseman is slashing .291/.359/.457 across 224 at-bats. The average is particularly impressive -- and out of character -- given that Reynolds is a career .232 hitter.
Jun 24 - 12:37 AM

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-3 with two home runs as the Rockies outslugged the Marlins 7-4 on Monday.

Reynolds' two dingers, both solo jobs, were just a few of the eight home runs the Marlins and Rockies combined for on the evening. The homers were numbers five and six on the year for the 32-year-old, who now has 25 RBI and 32 runs scored as the Rockies' primary first baseman. Somewhat unbelievably, the career .232 hitter has also maintained a respectable .290/.362/.448 line through 63 games.
Jun 20 - 11:13 PM

Mark Reynolds smacked his third home run of the year and added a double, two RBI and a run scored on Saturday.

Reynolds has always been a prodigious slugger and prolific whiffer. When a home run hitter like Reynolds becomes a Colorado Rockie we should expect the ball to fly out of Coors Field on a regular basis. Yet this was only Reynolds' third home run in 183 plate appearances. The career .232 hitter is now batting .296? Something is amiss. Fantasy owners should expect more power and a (much) lower batting average moving forward.
Jun 5 - 2:43 AM

Mark Reynolds went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts against the Padres on Friday.

His average fell below .300 for the first time since April 26. Then again, that was probably to be expected, given that Reynolds hasn't finished a season above .230 since 2009. The Rockies should be quick to bring back Ben Paulsen if he catches fire in Triple-A. Reynolds still has a fine OBP, but that doesn't seem likely to last, either.
Jun 4 - 1:13 AM

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-4 against the Pirates on Friday.

All three hits were singles. Reynolds has now hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games. The veteran slugger has been a pleasant surprise for the Rockies thus far, batting .328/.392/.466 through 36 games. The hot start was enough to send Ben Paulsen back to the minors, but it's not going to last. He’s still striking out just as much as ever and has a BABIP around .450. Be prepared.
May 20 - 10:14 PM

Mark Reynolds had three hits and an RBI against the Giants on Friday.

Reynolds has 86 plate appearances to Ben Paulsen's 60, so it's no platoon at first base for the Rockies. It probably won't be until Reynolds cools off.
