Rockies signed 1B Mark Reynolds to a one-year, $2.6 million contract.
The deal also includes performance-based incentives. Reynolds was a disappointment with the Cardinals in 2015, batting just .230/.315/.398 in 432 plate appearances, but he still swings a big power bat and that should play well at Coors Field. The 32-year-old first baseman will carry some fantasy value in deeper leagues that allow for daily lineup changes. Thu, Dec 10, 2015 01:06:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies and free agent infielder Mark Reynolds will "likely" have a contract agreement by the end of the Winter Meetings.

On Tuesday, Heyman indicated that the Rockies, Cardinals, Giants, and Padres were all in the hunt for Reynolds. He's now reporting that the Rockies are on track to wind up with the 32-year-old. In 432 plate appearances with St. Louis in 2015, Reynolds slashed .230/.315/.398 with 13 homers and 48 RBI. He'll get a power boost playing half his games at Coors Field.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies, Cardinals, Giants, and Pirates are among the teams interested in free agent Mark Reynolds.

As things stand right now, the Rockies and Pirates offer the best opportunity at making an impact. Reynolds batted .230/.315/.398 with 13 home runs over 432 plate appearances with the Cardinals in 2015 while mostly playing first base and third.

Mark Reynolds hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat as the Cardinals beat the Pirates 3-0 on Monday.

Reynolds entered the game as part of a defensive shakeup in the eighth inning, with Stephen Piscotty having left in the seventh due to a serious collision with Peter Bourjos in the outfield. The score was 0-0 entering the ninth, but the Cardinals had taken a 1-0 lead and Reynolds added on with a two-run blast off of Mark Melancon. The slugger's numbers are pedestrian, as he's hitting .236/.323/.410 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI on the year.

Mark Reynolds (wrist) singled in his lone at-bat as a pinch hitter during Friday's loss to the Pirates.

It's the first time that Reynolds has returned to action since leaving Tuesday's game after getting hit by a pitch. He should be able to rejoin the starting lineup any day now.

X-rays on Mark Reynolds' right wrist came back negative.

Reynolds was hit by a pitch in the third inning with the bases loaded to force in a run. He initially stayed in but eventually was pulled. He merely has a bruise, though, and is day-to-day.

Mark Reynolds finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's defeat of the Marlins.

Reynolds doubled and scored in the bottom of the first inning and then put the game out of reach with a three-run shot in the bottom of the sixth. The veteran first baseman is slashing .234/.310/.402 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI in 100 games this season for the Cardinals. It looks like he'll miss a ninth straight 20-homer campaign.

Mark Reynolds (hand) doubled in one of his three at-bats in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Reynolds missed a couple games with a bruised left hand, but he'll be fine. He's batting .230/.312/.395 with nine homers for the Cardinals this season.

Mark Reynolds is not playing Monday for a second straight day due to a bruised left hand.

Reynolds was hit by a pitch during Saturday's game. He could be available to pinch-hit Monday, although he noted that he'd have to hold his bottom hand off the end of the bat because of how sore it is. Dan Johnson is at first base Monday.

Mark Reynolds is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Saturday.

It's just a routine day of rest for the veteran slugger. Xavier Scruggs will draw the start at first base in his absence and bat seventh against Aaron Harang and the Phillies.

Matt Reynolds had a go-ahead two run single in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

His third-inning single off Kyle Gibson ended up being the difference in the ballgame. Reynolds is batting .259/.331/.405 with five home runs and 22 RBI over 57 games this season, but he's still striking out just as much as ever and has benefitted from an abnormally-high batting average on balls in play. The Cardinals figure to weigh their alternatives for first base in the coming weeks.

Mark Reynolds had the only RBI in the Cardinals' win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

It was the second straight low-scoring affair between the two teams, with Reynolds' RBI single in the second inning plating the lone run in the game. Reynolds finished 1-for-3 in the contest. The veteran was performing well in a part-time role before Matt Adams' injury, and he's moved into an everyday gig with Adams sidelined. Reynolds is hitting .261/.325/.391 on the year.

Mark Reynolds is starting at first base for the Cardinals on Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks.

He'll serve as the Cardinals' regular first baseman while Matt Adams recovers from a right quad strain -- an injury that could take over a month to fully heal. Reynolds is a frustratingly inconsistent hitter, but he still has good power at age 31 and should have mixed-league fantasy value for however long Adams is out.

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's lopsided win over the Mets.

Reynolds got the start at first base against left-hander Jon Niese, knocking two base hits to go with his third homer of the year. He's got 12 RBI and 10 runs scored on the year, batting .267/.337/.442 overall.

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in the Cardinals' win over the Indians on Tuesday.

Reynolds delivered the first blow of the game with a two-run single in the second inning, and he added two more singles in his next two at-bats. The utility player has found his way into the lineup with some regularity this year, starting 15 games and appearing in 27 total, and he's responded by hitting .258/.352/.435 with two homers, five doubles and 11 RBI. With his usage, he should be owned in NL-only leagues.
