Cardinals' Mark Reynolds racks up two hits Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Cardinals first baseman Mark Reynolds drew a rare start Thursday and rewarded his manager's decision by going 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI in his team's 4-0 win over the Brewers.

"Great day," manager Mike Matheny said afterward, per MLB.com. "This guy has some thunder in his bat, and it's going to be nice to get him locked in to where we can bring him into a situation where we know the other team isn't really happy about it."

Reynolds was just 1 for 5 for the season coming into Thursday's game.

"I was at a point in my career that I accepted [a part-time role] coming in, trying to win," Reynolds said of his agreeing to a role with little promised playing time. "So far, so good. I'll get some at-bats down the road, stay fresh and be ready to pinch-hit when I need to."


Matt Adams not in Cardinals lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

Adams had a big day Saturday, going 2 for 4 wth a home run after entering the day hitless in nine at-bats. Mark Reynolds will take his spot at first base Sunday.

The Cardinals are favorites (-115) in Cincinnati Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds continues to struggle at the plate


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Cardinals first baseman Mark Reynolds continued to struggle at the plate on Saturday, per Rotoworld.

Reynolds is in the middle of a 1-for-19 slump after going 0 for 3 on Saturday. He is currently hitting .129 with two home runs in 32 plate appearances this spring. 


Cardinals trying Mark Reynolds in left field


by Eric Kay | CBSSports.com Staff
(3/23/2015) The Cardinals are looking for creative ways to get Mark Reynolds into the lineup, and left field might be an option.

The Cardinals played Reynolds in left on Monday, his first outfield appearance of the spring.

"He's done some things, as far as run production goes, that not many people have done," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com's Andrew Simon. "So obviously we view that as a weapon and we have to figure out how to maximize it and just keep our eyes and mind open to what that could possibly look like and not have it figured out ahead of time." 

Reynolds has played five career games in the outfield, all in right field, starting one and catching two fly balls. 


Cardinals will not try to overhaul Mark Reynolds' approach at plate


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Cardinals slugger Mark Reynolds has carved out a niche in the majors as a power hitter. He has 224 home runs and a .457 slugging percentage over eight MLB seasons.

Unfortunately, Reynolds is also known as an all-or-nothing hitter and strikes out quite a lot. He has 1,398 strikeouts in 1,118 games.

Still, the Cardinals have no plans to dramatically overhaul Reynolds' swing, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“We need to capitalize on what his strengths are and not to focus on the weaknesses,” Matheny said, “and realize that he’s got a power component that is very rare. There are going to be some swings and misses.

“But we’re not necessarily going to go up and ask him to completely overhaul that. Make some subtle changes to maybe improve, but not be afraid to drive the ball. That’s why we did bring him in, and also to give us some options against tough lefthanded pitching.”


Cardinals agree to terms with Mark Reynolds


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) The Cardinals have agreed to terms with free-agent first baseman Mark Reynolds, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The deal is contingent on Reynolds passing a physical.  In 2014, Reynolds hit .196 with 22 home runs and 45 RBI over 130 games.


Mark Reynolds delivers in rare start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds, who hadn't started in five games, got a start at third base Sunday against the Reds and delivered a home run -- a solo shot in the eighth inning. He finished the game 1 for 2 with a walk, a strikeout and two runs scored.

Reynolds entered the game mired in a 4-for-44 (.091) slump, causing manager Ron Roenicke to split first base between rookie Matt Clark and usual catcher Jonathan Lucroy in recent days.

"We know he's a streaky guy; we know that he needs to be out there playing to get it back," Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Saturday. "We're in a situation where we have to make some decisions and try to play the hottest guy. That's what I've been doing."


Mark Reynolds swats 20th home run Monday vs. Cubs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 3-1 victory over the Cubs Monday.

After going 1 for 15 in his previous six games, Reynolds put his team on the board Monday with his second-inning home run. He's still just 3 for 23 with two home runs in August. Reynolds has hit .205/.295/.420 with 20 home runs and 41 RBI in 317 at-bats.


Mark Reynolds slugs 19th home run Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-2 loss to the Cardinals Sunday.

Reynolds put his team up 2-0 with his blast in the top of the second inning, but it would be the last offense the Brewers would muster in the game. He's now collected five home runs in his last nine games. Reynolds has hit .211/.303/.428 with 19 home runs and 39 RBI in 299 at-bats.


Mark Reynolds swats 17th home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-2 win over the Mets Saturday.

Reynolds usually has trouble scraping together hits, but he's managed to go 6 for 11 with a double and three home runs in his last three games. He owns a .212/.305/.417 line with 17 home runs and 37 RBI in 283 at-bats.


Mark Reynolds has second two-HR game this season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds homered twice, leading Milwaukee to a 5-1 win Wednesday against the Reds. He also had a single and one strikeout.

Reynolds connected for a two-run homer off Mike Leake in the sixth inning and hit a solo home run off Jumbo Diaz in the eighth inning. It was his second multi-homer game this season and he has 16 home runs in 85 games.


Mark Reynolds smacks pinch-hit home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Brewers infielder Mark Reynolds slugged a pinch-hit two-run home run in his team's 9-7 loss to the Phillies Tuesday.

Reynolds managed to collect six home runs in April and another six home runs in May, but he hadn't homered since June 2 before doing so Tuesday. He has hit .211/.307/.402 with 14 home runs and 33 RBI in 251 at-bats.


Mark Reynolds mired in serious home run drought


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds entered play Wednesday at Toronto without a home run in his last 25 games, which has matched the longest stretch of his career without a homer. 

"I'm not concerned about the homers, but squaring up balls more," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "I like him out there all the time because of his defense. He's done an unbelievable job for us that way. Most of the time, I'd have him out there [on Wednesday]."

Reynolds was held out of the starting lineup Wednesday because he was 0 for 16 with eight strikeouts in his career against Blue Jays starting pitcher J.A. Happ.


Mark Reynolds sitting on Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds hasn't homered since June 2 - and likely won't on June 28. He has been benched for the Saturday game against Colorado in favor of Lyle Overbay.

Reynolds is hitless in 10 at-bats lifetime against Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin.


Scuffling Mark Reynolds benched Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) Collapsing Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds has been benched for the Friday night game against Colorado. His spot will be manned by Lyle Overbay.

Reynolds has hit safely in just three of his last 10 games and is just 4 for 31 during that stretch. He has not homered since June 2 as his stat line has lowered to .202/.288/.408.


Mark Reynolds clubs 13th home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Brewers infielder Mark Reynolds went 1 for 2 with a walk, a home run and two RBI in his team's 6-2 win over the Twins Monday.

Reynolds was 0 for 9 in his previous three games before knocking his 13th home run of the year. Aside from his quality power though, the infielder doesn't bring much to the table offensively. He has hit .208/.288/.458 with 13 home runs and 27 RBI in 168 at-bats.


Mark Reynolds has his uses


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/29/2014) How bad has third base been this year? In terms of Head-to-Head points, Anthony Rendon ranks fourth there compared to 10th at second base.

Which makes a normally unenticing player like Mark Reynolds legitimately useful.

Not so much in Head-to-Head points leagues, where he ranks 21st at third base because of his usual high strikeout rate and sporadic playing time, but in Rotisserie leagues, where power and speed (especially power these days) count for more, his production can't be ignored.

He and Josh Donaldson have been far and away the leading home run hitters at the position with 13 and 12, respectively. The next closest has nine. Those 12 put him on pace for 36 this season -- a mark he has achieved twice before and a mark only five players, third basemen or otherwise, achieved last season.

Let's say he hits just 16 more this season. With Aramis Ramirez on the verge of returning and potentially cutting into his at-bats, 24 might be too much to ask. It's still going to set him apart at a position depleted all the more by the need to start an extra corner infielder. Particularly if you can take the hit in batting average, Reynolds deserves your attention.


Mark Reynolds goes deep twice in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Brewers infielder Mark Reynolds put together his first multi-hit game in nearly two weeks Friday, in a 9-5 win over the Marlins.

Reynolds, who was just 3 for 31 in his previous nine games, went off in Miami. He was 2 for 5 in the game, with both of his hits going deep for his 10th and 11th home runs of the season; both were also two-run shots.

Reynolds has driven in eight runs over his last three games, giving him 23 RBI on the season, while hitting .210/.284/.471 in 138 at-bats. 


Mark Reynolds clubs first-inning grand slam


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Brewers infielder Mark Reynolds has struggled recently, but managed to make a big impact with one swing Wednesday against Braves.

Reynolds put the Brewers up for good in the first inning, as he clubbed a grand slam. He finished the game just 1 for 4 overall, though that was enough to raise his batting average to .202 on the season, as he is just 2 for 27 over his last eight games.

Reynolds has nine home runs in 129 at-bats, but is hitting just .202/.281/.434 overall. 


Mark Reynolds, Jeff Bianchi to fill in for injured 3B


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Mark Reynolds will play more at third base with Aramis Ramirez headed to the disabled list with a hamstring injury, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Roenicke said Jeff Bianchi will also see time at third base.

Mark Reynolds knocks seventh home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2014) Brewers infielder Mark Reynolds went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 6-2 loss to the Reds Saturday.

Reynolds' home run, which was one of just three hits for the Brewers in the loss, was his seventh of the season and second in his last three games. He has hit .229/.301/.518 in 83 at-bats.


Mark Reynolds hits sixth homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Brewers infielder Mark Reynolds provided much of the team's offense Wednesday, in a 9-3 loss to the Cardinals.

Reynolds drove in two runs with a second-inning home run, his lone hit of the day. He still managed to reach base three times overall, adding a pair of walks to his 1 for 2 day.

Reynolds is hitting .224/.302/.500 with six home runs in 21 games.  


Mark Reynolds homers in two straight games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:02 am ET) Brewers outfielder Mark Reynolds homered for the second straight game Sunday at Pittsburgh. Reynolds had a one-out double in the fifth inning before he led off the eighth inning with a solo home run off Gerrit Cole, which tied the game at 1.

Reynolds, who started all four games at first base against Pittsburgh, hit .333 (5 for 15) with one double, two home runs and two RBI during the series. He also had one walk, three runs and three strikeouts. 

Reynolds has five home runs and is slugging .558 through 15 games. However, he is batting just .231 with 20 strikeouts.


Mark Reynolds back to old ways with Brewers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) The slump and spate of strikeouts that began plaguing Mark Reynolds around June last season with Cleveland have arrived earlier in 2014.

Reynolds has just one hit - a home run - in his last 16 at-bats with eight strikeouts. His batting average has dipped during that stretch from .286 to .189.

His inability to make consistent contact and propensity for long slumps is what motivated the Indians to dump him last season. It remains to be seen if he recovers enough to prevent the Brewers from doing the same. He has fanned 17 times in 37 at-bats on the year.


Mark Reynolds off to hot start - again


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) 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.
