|Mark Reynolds off to hot start - again |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/10/14) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds has prompted a sense of deja vu with his start to the 2014 season. He has opened the year on a hot streak, much as he did with Cleveland in 2013 before an epic slump and pull-happy tendencies motivated his release.
Reynolds has played in just five games, but has been quite productive. He is batting .333 in his last four games with two home runs and five RBI. He has even stolen two bases, one fewer than he had all of last year.
Any optimism must be tempered, however, by his continuing propensity to strike out. He has fanned nine times in 21 at-bats.

(4/1/14) Mark Reynolds made his first start for the Brewers during Tuesday's game against the Braves. Reynolds started at first base since Alex Wood, a left-handed pitcher, made the start for Atlanta.
Lyle Overbay started at first base in Monday's opener, when the Braves started right-handed pitcher Julio Teheran.

(3/29/14) The Brewers have selected the contracts of both Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay.
Both players signed minor-league deals during the offseason, and competed for a role with the major-league club. Overbay will see the larger half of the platoon, while Reynolds will be responsible for tough lefties.
|Platoon destined to mean boatload of strikeouts for Brewers |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/27/14) The Brewers appear set to platoon Lyle Overbay against right-handers and Mark Reynolds against lefties at first base this season.
Both have enjoyed strong springs, but playing that duo could result in 200 strikeouts from that position in 2014. Overbay fanned 111 times in 445 at-bats a year ago with the Yankees, which makes him a contact hitter in comparison to Reynolds, who struck out 144 times in the same number of at-bats.
|Mark Reynolds finished 2013 with a .220 average, hitting 21 home runs in 445 at-bats. It's been a familiar theme for the corner infielder -- get on a hot streak at some point in the season (he hit .301 with eight home runs in April), flounder a bit, and finish with enough power to make him a tempting Fantasy addition the following season. Reynolds has settled in as a .220-hitting, 20-25 homer-hitting corner infielder, who can infuriate points leaguers with his strikeouts, but may provide just enough power for a Roto owner to plug him in at CI, where he can do slightly more good than bad. His situation with the Brewers is fittingly vague -- Juan Francisco will get at-bats, and Aramis Ramirez is dug in at third -- but it's a friendly park for home run hitters, which should help offset the lack of full-time at-bats. He's a bit of a risk, but a Fantasy owner at least know what to expect with Reynolds on the team.
