Rockies signed 1B Mark Reynolds to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Reynolds is headed back to Colorado after hitting .282 with 14 homers for the Rockies in 2016. He won't see as much playing time as he did last year now that the Rockies have Ian Desmond to man first base. Reynolds will probably be limited to pinch-hitting and the occasional spot start, assuming he makes the big league roster. The 33-year-old hit .310 at Coors Field last year but only .255 in other parks. Feb 1 - 8:10 PM

Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports the Giants have reached out to Mark Reynolds in their search for a powerful bench bat.

The Giants' payroll has reached $200 million for the first time ever. Because they are subject to the luxury tax they would have to pay a 50 percent penalty on top of any free agent salary. The 33-year-old Reynolds' season ended early after he broke his hand in mid-September. He hit .282/.356/.450 with 14 home runs and 53 RBI in 118 games with the Rockies. Moving from Coors Field to AT&T Park would likely put a dent in his power output.

Mark Reynolds (hand) will not require surgery.

Reynolds suffered a fractured left hand when he was hit by a pitch on Sunday. The good news is that he won't need surgery, but his season is over. The 33-year-old finishes with a .282/.356/.450 batting line to go along with 14 homers over 118 games. He's due to be a free agent this winter.

Mark Reynolds suffered a fractured left hand Sunday and is out for the season.

Reynolds previously missed a few weeks with a broken hamate bone. His absence will put Gerardo Parra and Stephen Cardullo at first base for the Rockies the rest of the way.

Mark Reynolds socked a two-run homer as the Rockies dispatched of the Padres 6-3 on Sunday afternoon in Colorado.

His two-run shot off of Padres starter Jarred Cosart put the Rockies ahead 2-1 in the fourth, a lead that they wouldn't relinquish. He has had a resurgence of sorts in Colorado this season, slashing a healthy .282/.356/.450 with 14 homers and 53 RBI.

Mark Reynolds blasted a solo homer in the 10th inning on Sunday, propelling the Rockies to a 3-2 victory over the Padres in San Diego.

It was his only hit in four at-bats on the afternoon, but proved to be the difference-maker. Reynolds has done a nice job at the dish this season, slashing .282/.355/.447 with 13 homers and 51 RBI.

Rockies activated 1B Mark Reynolds from the 15-day disabled list.

Reynolds made an incredibly swift recovery from August 15 surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand. Or maybe he's not even ready yet and merely returning ahead of the expansion of MLB rosters on Thursday. There should be more information soon.

Mark Reynolds underwent successful hamate bone surgery on his left hand on Monday.

Reynolds is expected to miss around 4-8 weeks, so his status for the rest of the season is up in the air. Ben Paulsen will get a chance to take over the starting first base gig.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.
