Fantasy Impact: The power-hitting first baseman only batted .230 last season with 13 home runs and 48 runs batted in for the Cardinals. Reynolds will likely be involved in a platoon at first base for the Rockies and could have some fantasy value with his 20-plus home run potential.

The Cardinals defeated the Pirates on Monday by the score of 3-0. The game was scoreless entering the ninth inning, but Mark Reynolds belted a two-run home run off Mark Melancon. The home run was the 13th of the season for Reynolds.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds is batting just .235 for the season and his slugging percentage of .410 is below his career averages. He's a very one-dimensional player, but should help fantasy owners next season in the power categories.

The Cardinals pounded the Reds on Wednesday by the score of 10-2. Mark Reynolds was a strong contributor in the game, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI. Reynolds is now batting .236 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds had been struggling this month, going 2-for-21 before last night's game. He has 35 extra-base hits, including 12 home runs in 365 at-bats. While Reynolds still has decent power, he provided very little else in terms of fantasy value.

The Cardinals defeated the Nationals on Monday by the score of 8-5. Mark Reynolds was one of five Cardinals with two hits. He knocked in a run and scored a run and is now batting .238 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds has hit safely in his last eight games, raising his average ten points in the process. He has 18 doubles and 12 home runs, contributing to a .720 OPS. While his numbers are solid, there are better fantasy options at first base for the stretch run.

The Cardinals made the most of six hits in defeating the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, 3-1. Mark Reynolds tied the game in the fifth inning with a home run. It was his only hit in three at-bats and is now batting .232 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds has hit safely in six of his last seven games. He has 31 extra-base hits in 327 at-bats, but his OPS is down from a career mark of .776 to .709 this year. While Reynolds supplies some power, he offers very little else in terms of fantasy value.

The Cardinals made the most of seven hits on Friday in defeating the Miami Marlins, 3-1. Mark Reynolds got two of those hits, including a double, RBI and run scored. Reynolds is not batting .230 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: The two-hit game for Reynolds was his first multi-hit game since July 19. He's had only 20 at-bats this month. Reynolds still displays some power, but very little else and his dwindling playing time further diminishes his fantasy value.

The Cardinals fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday in 14 innings, 6-5. The loss dropped the Cardinals to 56-32 on the season Mark Reynolds had a big night, going 2-for-6 with a home run and two RBI. He's now batting .226 this season.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds has eight home runs and 32 RBI, but has 83 strikeouts. He's never been a contact or average hitter, but his OPS is just .690, down from his career mark of .777. While Reynolds will supply bursts of power, there are many better fantasy options.

Mark Reynolds with game-winning HR

Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and what would prove to be the game winning home run for the St. Louis Cardinals. Living up to his reputation he not only went yard, but also struck out twice during this game.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds' HR was his fourth on the season and he garnered his 19th RBI. With the loss of 1B Matt Adams, Reynolds has received significant playing time and is taking advantage of his opportunities in the Cardinals lineup.

Mark Reynolds had a nice day Thursday against the Brewers. He finished 2-for-4 with a double and a RBI.

Fantasy Impact: So far Reynolds has been everything the Cardinals have asked for and more. He's a career .220 hitter and on this bright young season he's going .330. Of course it won't last but, they'll enjoy it while he's hot.

Mark Reynolds started on Sunday verse the Reds. He batted 5th behind Jhonny Peralta.

Fantasy Impact: He had a relatively average afternoon going 1-3 with a K and a walk. Nothing worth rostering as he'll spell Matt Adams from time to time and gather some pinch at-bats.
