Cardinals will not try to overhaul Mark Reynolds' approach at plate
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) 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

|(12/11/14) 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|
|(9/14/14) 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|
|(8/11/14) 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|
|(8/3/14) 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.
Grading the Offseason: NL Central
The Cardinals made a big move to improve their outfield, the Cubs hired the best manager in the business, the Pirates did what they had to, and the Brewers and Reds treaded water.
|2014 summary: Content to mix and match at first base for the second straight year, the Brewers went with Mark Reynolds more often than not since he could at least hit for power. But as was the case in each of his previous four stops, his shortcomings eventually caused him to wear out his welcome. He hardly played in September and finished with a sub-.200 batting average for the second time in his career. |
Playing time status: Reynolds has hit just .212 in the five years since that magical 2009 when he hit .260, and even with power in short supply, that's just too low for any team to offer him a full-time role this offseason. The Cardinals signed him to potentially spell up-and-comer Matt Adams against tought lefties, but he doesn't figure to get a high number of at-bats in that role.
2015 outlook: Of course, power is in short enough supply that as long as he gets 200 at-bats or so, Reynolds will have a place in NL-only Rotisserie leagues. You'll obviously have to guard against the batting average drain if you do resort to him, though.
