NewsBrewers first baseman Mark Reynolds connected for two home runs Wednesday against the Reds.
ImpactReynolds (16 HR, 36 RBI, 36 R) still has solid pop, but not enough to get us to overlook his .207 average.
Mark Reynolds launches two-run homer | 06/02/2014 10:59 PM
NewsMark Reynolds smacked a two-run homer and drew a walk in Monday's win over the Twins.
ImpactReynolds is hitting just .208 with a strikeout rate approaching 33 percent, but he already has 13 home runs. It's a tough balance for some fantasy owners to strike, but he has value.
Reynolds scores winning run, Brewers top O's | 05/28/2014 12:55 AM
NewsMark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a home run, and he scored the winning run in the 10th inning as the Brewers outlasted the Orioles 7-6 on Tuesday.
ImpactIn the second inning, Reynolds took Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen deep for his 12th home run of the season. He also singled in the game, and with Francisco Rodriguez due up next the Orioles walked Reynolds with two outs in the 10th. Yovani Gallardo, pinch hitting for Rodriguez, made the O's pay for the decision, doubling to the left field gap to bring Reynolds home for the winning run. Reynolds has 19 runs scored in 42 games this season.
Mark Reynolds blasts two homers in victory | 05/23/2014 10:45 PM
NewsMark Reynolds blasted a pair of home runs on Friday, powering the Brewers to a 9-5 victory over the Marlins in Miami.
ImpactReynolds victimized Marlins starter Tom Koehler with a two-run homer in the fourth inning, then repeated the feat his next time up the following inning. Those were his only two hits in five at-bats on the evening, raising his season slash to .210/.284/.471. He's never been much in the average department, but with 10 long balls and 23 RBI he's certainly providing the run production that the Brewers were hoping for.
Reynolds' grand slam powers Brewers to win | 05/21/2014 9:38 PM
NewsMark Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Wednesday's win against the Braves.
ImpactReynolds put the Brewers up 4-0 in the first inning with a one-out grand slam against Ervin Santana. Entering the game, Reynolds had only one hit, a single, in 28 plate appearances dating back to May 13. He is slashing .202/.281/.434 with nine home runs and 19 RBI, more or less matching expectations through 146 plate appearances.

NewsMark Reynolds went 2-for-5 with a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Brewers a 6-5 win over the Yankees on Sunday.
ImpactReynolds keeps finding ways to produce for the surprising Brewers. On Sunday, he singled past a drawn-in infield to bring home Rickie Weeks and give the Brewers the victory. He has hits in 10 of his last 11 games with three home runs and six RBI in that span.
Mark Reynolds hits eighth homer | 05/10/2014 12:30 AM
NewsMark Reynolds popped his eighth homer in a losing cause Friday against the Yankees.
ImpactThe Yankees had interest in bringing back Reynolds over the winter, but it seems like things have worked out best for both parties, with the Bombers getting good results from their third basemen and Reynolds succeeding as a first baseman in Milwaukee. He shouldn't be losing as many starts to Lyle Overbay as he has of late, though.
Mark Reynolds goes deep in loss to Cards | 04/30/2014 5:16 PM
NewsMark Reynolds drew two walks and launched a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.
ImpactReynolds' blast in the second inning gave the Brewers what turned out to be a short-lived lead. The veteran infielder gave the Brew Crew pretty much exactly what they should have been hoping for in the first month, batting .224/.302/.500 but with six homers and 11 RBI. He played third base the last couple days with Aramis Ramirez (elbow), but with Ramirez slated to play Thursday will return to primarily being the first baseman against lefties.
Reynolds hits fifth home run against Pirates | 04/20/2014 6:24 PM
NewsMark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a home run in Sunday's game against the Pirates.
ImpactReynolds went yard against Pirates starter Gerrit Cole to break up Cole's shutout in the eighth inning. He also doubled off Cole earlier in the game. After spending the last year as a part-time player, Reynolds has found a home at first base with the Brewers this year.
Reynolds launches solo homer Friday vs. PIT | 04/11/2014 11:28 PM
NewsMark Reynolds smacked a solo homer Friday against the Pirates.
ImpactReynolds is off to a pretty good start with the Brewers, hitting .259 (7-for-27) with three home runs, six RBI, and two stolen bases through seven games. He also has a .355 on-base percentage. The high (for him) batting average won't last of course, but he has enough power to help in deeper mixed leagues. Fantasy owners will have to watch Ned Yost's lineup on a daily basis though, as Lyle Overbay is also getting playing time at first base.
Reynolds to start at first base Tuesday | 04/01/2014 3:18 PM
NewsMark Reynolds will start at first base Tuesday against the Braves.
Tom Haudricourt on Twitter
ImpactLyle Overbay started at first base on Opening Day against right-hander Julio Teheran, but Reynolds is in the lineup Tuesday with left-hander Alex Wood pitching for Atlanta. The 30-year-old isn't going to hit for average, but he could provide some cheap pop for fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Brewers select the contract of Mark Reynolds | 03/29/2014 8:51 AM
NewsBrewers selected the contract of INF Mark Reynolds from Triple-A Nashville.
ImpactThe 30-year-old slugger is expected to split time at first base with Lyle Overbay for the Brewers this season. He slashed .226/.328/.415 with a pair of homers and 11 RBI in Cactus League play, and could be worth a look in the final rounds of mixed league drafts if short on power.
Reynolds homers for second consecutive day | 03/19/2014 6:21 PM
NewsMark Reynolds homered for the second time in as many days on Wednesday against the Mariners.
ImpactReynolds hit a grand slam on Tuesday, then took Blake Beavan deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning on Wednesday. He also added a double, ending the day 2-for-3 with two runs scored. Reynolds can be streaky, and it looks like he's starting to heat up after a cold start to Cactus League action.
Reynolds enjoys big day at the plate | 03/18/2014 6:21 PM
NewsMark Reynolds doubled and hit a grand slam against the Rangers on Tuesday.
ImpactReynolds was having an ugly spring training entering Tuesday afternoon's game, but broke out in a big way. He took Michael Kirkman deep for a grand slam in the sixth inning. It was reviewed, but ultimately held up. Reynolds should get at least a portion of the playing time at first base against left-handed pitchers.
Brewers sign Mark Reynolds to minors deal | 01/17/2014 10:30 AM
NewsBrewers signed INF Mark Reynolds to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Tom Haudricourt on Twitter
ImpactThe deal was reported to be close late Thursday and is now official. Although he's not officially on the 40-man roster yet, Reynolds has been assured he's a virtual lock to make the Opening Day roster. Assuming he does, he'll earn $2 million with a possible $500,000 more available in incentives. At the very least, Reynolds will handle first base against lefties and is the favorite to receive the bulk of the at-bats at the position.
Reynolds to get minors deal from Brewers | 01/16/2014 7:33 PM
NewsFOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mark Reynolds will get a minor league deal from the Brewers.
Ken Rosenthal on Twitter
ImpactAdam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Reynolds is expected to be the club's everyday first baseman, so it doesn't really matter that it's a minor league deal. It's not clear at this point how much the contract will be for. Reynolds' average in 2014 figures to be around the .220 mark it was last season, but his power will play well at Miller Park.
Brewers 'making a push' for Mark Reynolds | 01/16/2014 6:48 PM
NewsCBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers are "making a push" for Mark Reynolds and Reynolds is "leaning toward signing with them."
Jon Heyman on Twitter
ImpactIt was previously reported that the Nationals, Rangers, Twins and Orioles were in on Reynolds, but evidently the Brewers have come in hard on him late. It's a fit, as they're looking for a first baseman and are apparently unwilling to meet the Mets' demands for Ike Davis. Reynolds batted just .220/.306/.393 in 2013, but he still managed to slug 21 home runs in 135 games and should have no trouble hitting at least that many again playing half his games at Miller Park.
Reynolds could make decision by end of week | 01/15/2014 7:03 PM
NewsMark Reynolds is currently weighing several offers and will likely make a decision by the end of the week, per Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.
Adam Kilgore on Twitter
ImpactIt was previously reported that the Nationals, Rangers, Twins and Orioles were in on the slugger. The Orioles may be out with the signing of Tyler Colvin, and the 30-year-old will likely serve as a bench bat wherever he lands. It seems he'll snag a major league deal wherever he winds up.

NewsAccording to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Nationals, Rangers, Twins and Orioles are in on Mark Reynolds.
Jon Heyman on Twitter
ImpactThe Yankees discussed re-signing him earlier this winter but were only willing to offer him a minor league contract. Reynolds batted just .220/.306/.393 in 2013, but he still managed to slug 21 home runs in 135 games and power is something that is always in high demand. The 30-year-old should find a major league deal soon.
Mark Reynolds won't return to Yankees | 01/12/2014 8:44 AM
NewsMark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that the Yankees will not re-sign Mark Reynolds.
Mark Feinsand on Twitter
ImpactThere had been interest in a reunion, but Feinsand says the Yanks are only willing to offer Reynolds a minor league contract. The 30-year-old is coming off a season where he batted just .220/.306/.393, but he'll be able to get a major league deal from someone. The Twins, Brewers, Angels and Rays, among others, showed interest in Reynolds earlier this offseason.
Yankees and Reynolds not close to deal | 12/17/2013 3:36 PM
NewsThere is mutual interest between the Yankees and free agent Mark Reynolds, but "as far as a deal there is nothing even remotely close," according to the Wall Street Journal's Dan Barbarisi.
Dan Barbarisi on Twitter
ImpactA reunion with Reynolds would buy New York insurance at third base with Alex Rodriguez's status up in the air. Reynolds has also received interest from the Twins, Brewers, Angels and Rays this winter. The free-swinging 30-year-old hit .220/.306/.393 with 21 homers over 504 plate appearances this year.

ImpactReynolds would offer some protection at third base with Alex Rodriguez's status up in the air and could also start some at DH against left-handers.

NewsMark Reynolds ripped a solo homer in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Mark Reynolds hits fourth homer for Yankees | 09/13/2013 12:15 AM
NewsMark Reynolds hit his fourth homer as a Yankee in the win over the Orioles on Thursday.
ImpactReynolds forced the Indians to release him with three months of horrible, terrible play, but since joining the Yankees, he's hit .279 with 16 RBI in 68 at-bats. It has to be pretty frustrating for Indians fans to take.
Reynolds has three hits, RBI against Jays | 08/28/2013 10:21 PM
NewsMark Reynolds went 3-for-4 with an RBI against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
ImpactReynolds is now 9-for-34 (.265) with six RBI since joining the Yankees on August 18. His RBI double in the fourth inning Wednesday gave him 54 RBI for the year. He's starting almost every day for the Yankees, so if he starts to get hot he could be a useful player in AL-only leagues down the stretch.
Reynolds homers, has three RBI in Yanks debut | 08/16/2013 11:12 PM
NewsMaking his Yankees debut, Mark Reynolds went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI on Friday against the Red Sox.
ImpactReynolds was homerless over his final 22 games as a member of the Indians, so of course he launched a two-run homer in his first at-bat with the Yankees. The free-swinger later added an RBI single in the ninth. The Yankees are hoping for some lightening in a bottle, so Reynolds figures to be used in a platoon with Lyle Overbay at first base for now. We're not counting on much from a fantasy perspective, but he's capable of going on a power streak.

The Journal News
ImpactReynolds was released by the Indians earlier this week after batting just .215/.307/.373 over 384 plate appearances, but he should see at-bats between first base, third base and the DH spot now that he has latched on with New York. He's hitting eighth Friday against left-hander Felix Doubront.
Report: Mark Reynolds signs with Yankees | 08/15/2013 8:15 PM
NewsCBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have agreed to terms with Mark Reynolds.
ImpactIt will presumably be a major league deal. Reynolds, who was released by the Indians earlier this week, reportedly picked the Yankees over three other interested parties. He batted only .215/.307/.373 with the Tribe but had 15 home runs and should see regular time at first base for the Bombers while also filling in at third and in the DH spot.

ImpactReynolds is mired in quite the slump right now, hitting just .160 (17-for-106) with two homers, six RBI and an astounding 49 strikeouts since the beginning of June. He looks completely lost at the plate right now, and shouldn't be started for fantasy purposes until he shows signs of turning it around.

NewsMark Reynolds went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the Indians' loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.
ImpactReynolds doesn't have a hit and has been fanned six times in his last three games. The regression should have been expected, though, and his power numbers still hold strong. Reynolds remains a solid fantasy commodity.

NewsMark Reynolds went 3-for-4 with a walk, the RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.
ImpactAs has been the case for most of the season, Reynolds hit the ball with authority. Reynolds' batting average has dropped off somewhat, but .261 is far better than his owners expected out of the .236 career hitter. Through 45 games played, Reynolds is fifth in the AL with 12 homers, fourth in RBI with 40 and 10th in slugging with a .535 mark.

NewsMark Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, an RBI single and a walk-off fielder's choice in Saturday's win over the Mariners.
ImpactReynolds drove in three runs on the day. The fielder's choice came with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, as catcher Jesus Montero was unable to keep his foot on home plate on a throw from shortstop Brendan Ryan. Reynolds has been one of the AL's most productive hitters thus far, batting .268/.354/.580 through 40 games. He's tied with the Yankees' Robinson Cano for the American League lead with 12 homers.

NewsIndians manager Terry Francona said Mark Reynolds "will get the majority of the time at third" base following the demotion of Lonnie Chisenhall.
Cleveland Plain Dealer
ImpactReynolds is making his third straight start at the position Tuesday since Chisenhall's demotion. He offers below average defense at the hot corner, but with the way he's swinging the bat, the Indians don't really care. Having Reynolds at third should ultimately mostly help Ryan Raburn and Jason Giambi get more playing time. Mike Aviles will also see some starts at the hot corner
Reynolds belts 11th HR, Indians beat Oakland | 05/09/2013 3:14 PM
NewsMark Reynolds slugged his 11th home run of the season in the Indians' win over the A's on Thursday.

NewsMark Reynolds hit a game-winning home run in the top of the 11th inning as the Indians beat the Blue Jays 3-2 on Wednesday night in Toronto.
ImpactReynolds will serve primarily as the Indians' DH this season, so they'll be expecting more of those kind of shots from the 29-year-old.

NewsMark Reynolds blasted a mammoth home run off David Hernandez in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Friday.
ImpactWhile there was no measurement on the towering drive to center field, those who witnessed it were amazed by the distance. It was the third homer on the spring for Reynolds, who's hitting .350/.422/.700 with nine RBI this spring. Hitting in the middle of the Indians lineup, he has the ability to rack up large RBI totals and could return to fantasy prominence.
