Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Cardinals on Friday.
Reynolds sat out a couple of games in favor of Gerardo Parra earlier this week, even though he has about 300 points of OPS on Parra. He's already starting to fade some and he should continue to decline from here, but he's still a better bet than Parra going forward. May 27 - 12:58 AM

Mark Reynolds, who was out of the lineup the last two games, went 0-for-4 before being removed from Thursday's game against the Phillies.

No injuries were reported for Reynolds, but the Rockies used Gerardo Parra over him in back-to-back games before returning him to the lineup today. Reynolds is without an extra-base hit in his last 10 games, though he's still driven in eight runs with nine hits during that span. His OPS, which was as high as 1.092 on May 10, is down to .948 now.

Mark Reynolds is getting the night off Tuesday versus the Phillies.

Ian Desmond will start at first base and bat fifth versus Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin. Gerardo Parra is in left field and batting sixth.
May 23 - 3:57 PM

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-5 and drove in three run on Friday in a lopsided victory over the Reds.

Reynolds got the Rockies on the board with an RBI single in the first inning and added a two-run single to cap off the damage in the ninth. The veteran first baseman has been a godsend for the Rockies this year, slashing a robust .329/.407/.610 with 12 homers and 38 RBI.
May 19 - 10:53 PM

Mark Reynolds is not in the Rockies' lineup Thursday for the second game of their doubleheader against the Twins.

Reynolds served as the DH in the first game of the double dip, going 1-for-2 with a single and two walks in the Rockies' 5-1 victory. Carlos Gonzalez will DH the nightcap with Ian Desmond manning first base. Reynolds sports a masterful .319 average with 12 homers and a team-leading 35 RBI this year.
May 18 - 6:51 PM

Mark Reynolds clubbed his 12th home run of the season Tuesday as the Rockies beat the Cubs 10-4 in the first half of a split doubleheader.

Reynolds also had a pair of RBI singles, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored in the rout of the defending World Series champions. He's been a steal for the Rockies so far in 2017 after signing a minor league contract (worth $1.5 million in the majors) back in early February. The veteran first baseman has homered in four straight games.
May 9 - 5:35 PM

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks

Reynolds socked a 445-foot bomb to left-center off Taijuan Walker with one out in the second inning. He has now homered in three consecutive contests and is up to 11 for the season as a whole. The veteran slugger has not hit more than 14 homers in a season since 2014, but should be able to race past that mark with relative ease over the next few weeks. In addition to those 11 dingers, Reynolds is slashing .321/.379/.661 and has driven in 27 runs in 31 games played. He has been nothing short of a revelation this season and while we do not expect him to keep up this scalding pace through the whole summer, he should remain locked in fantasy lineups until he begins to cool down.
May 7 - 7:43 PM

Mark Reynolds hit a two-run home run, his 10th of the season, in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The homer was the second in as many games for Reynolds, whose 10 dongs are third-most in the National League. Reynolds is also fourth in the league with 26 RBI, ranking near the top in slugging percentage and OPS as well. With his hot hitting, manager Bud Black has found a way to keep Reynolds in the lineup on a regular basis even with Ian Desmond's return. As long as he's in there, fantasy owners should have the 33-year-old in their lineup as well.
May 7 - 12:25 AM

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 and homered Friday in a losing cause against the Diamondbacks.

Nine homers and a .990 OPS is pretty good, but not good enough for a spot on the All-Star ballot; the Rockies opted to keep Ian Desmond listed at first base on the ballot, even though he'll mostly be playing in the outfield until Reynolds slows down.
May 6 - 12:13 AM

Mark Reynolds whacked three hits Thursday in the Rockies’ 3-2 win over the Padres.

They were all singles, but that shouldn’t take away from what was another outstanding performance by Reynolds, who is now hitting .307 with eight homers and 23 RBI this season. The Rockies had intended to use Ian Desmond as their everyday first baseman but he’s mostly played left field since coming back from a broken hand. That’s allowed the Rockies to keep Reynolds at first base, though manager Bud Black will have to make a tough call when David Dahl from his rib injury.
May 4 - 8:20 PM

Mark Reynolds finished 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a game-winning RBI single in the top of the ninth inning Saturday in Arizona.

Reynolds raised his average to .311 with his 10th multi-hit game in the month of April. He isn't doing it cheaply, either, as he has belted four homers while piling up 11 RBI over the past eight contests.
Apr 30 - 12:56 AM

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Monday in the Rockies' 8-4 win over the Nationals.

Reynolds was pretty quiet for two weeks after his blistering start, but now he has two homers in his last three games. It means the Rockies will likely bring Ian Desmond back from the DL as an outfielder initially, though Reynolds could still be pushed back into a reserve role when David Dahl is ready.
Apr 25 - 12:58 AM

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a double, two-run home run and four RBI in Saturday's win against the Giants.

Reynolds is humming right along to open the season, posting seven multi-hit games so far in the month of April while managing a .339 batting average with a 1.061 OPS. He is also up to five homers with 10 extra-base hits and 16 RBI. Reynolds remains a bona fide fantasy starter in all NL-only formats and he is turning heads in deeper mixed leagues again, too.
Apr 23 - 1:32 AM

Mark Reynolds went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Thursday’s win over the Giants.

Reynolds muscled a Madison Bumgarner pitch into center for an RBI single in the sixth inning. That hit put the Rockies up 3-0. They would ultimately win by a 3-1 final. Veteran first baseman Reynolds has done a nice job filling in for Ian Desmond (hand) and is hitting .306/.375/.722 with four home runs and 11 RBI over the first 11 games of the season. He will continue to hold value in NL-only formats until Desmond returns to action, but with the way he is currently hitting, even mixed-leaguers might want to consider adding him to the bench for the short term.
Apr 14 - 5:23 AM

Mark Reynolds hit his fourth homer Monday off the Padres' Brandon Maurer.

It didn't mean much, coming with the Rockies down four runs in the ninth, but it'll help his fantasy owners taking advantage of his early season surge. Reynolds didn't hit his fourth homer last year until his 57th game of the season on June 12.
