ESPN's Jerry Crasnick is hearing that Mark Reynolds "is still a potential fit" with the Rockies.
At the moment the Rockies have youngster Ryan McMahon penciled in at first base, but they could ultimately decide to bring Reynolds back. The 34-year-old had to settle for a minor league contract last winter but is holding out for a guaranteed deal this time around after he slugged 30 homers in 2017. It's an understandable stance from Reynolds, but with plenty of other first base options on the market he might not get what he wants. Feb 9 - 12:24 PM

Mark Reynolds told Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post that he is open to returning to the Rockies, but only on a guaranteed major league deal.

Reynolds signed a non-guaranteed minor league contract with the Rockies last winter and went on to tally 30 home runs and 97 RBI in 148 games. "I think I proved last year that I can produce and help a team," Reynolds said Tuesday. "I am looking to sign a major-league deal. … Things are different this year." The veteran free agent would be a nice complement to young Rockies first base prospect Ryan McMahon in 2018, but Colorado's front office might continue to slow-play this one. Reynolds' poor offensive splits away from Coors Field greatly limit his appeal to other teams with less-hitter-friendly home environments.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports the Royals have expressed interest in free agent Mark Reynolds.

Cotillo says the Rockies remain a "strong contender" to re-sign Reynolds, but Kansas City is viewing him as a good fallback plan if Eric Hosmer walks. There are also some other teams involved beyond the Rockies and Royals. Reynolds tallied 30 home runs and 97 RBI in 148 games this past season with Colorado, though he had a .977 OPS at Coors Field and a .703 OPS everywhere else. The veteran first baseman turns 35 years old late next summer.
