Fantasy Impact: Reynolds will first need to make the roster in spring training. If he does, it offers the Rockies another option against left-handed pitching as Reynolds could play first base and Ian Desmond would replace one of the left-handed hitters in the Rockies' outfield.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds finishes the year with 13 home runs and 51 RBI. It was a bit of a letdown year considering Reynolds was playing in Colorado but at the same time, we should not expect as much from a 33-year-old, power only player. Mark will be, at best, a late-round consideration next season.

Fantasy Impact: Ben Paulsen will get a chance to take over the starting first base gig. It's a shame for fantasy owners because Reynolds was having a great season.

Mark Reynolds is likely headed to the disabled list with a left wrist injury.

Fantasy Impact: Not good. The Rockies are in the playoff hunt for NL wildcard. Reynolds' X-rays were "inconclusive." It's a tough loss for the Rockies, who are perilously thin at first base. Daniel Descalso handled first after Reynolds left Thursday's game against Texas and could play there regularly while Reynolds is on the shelf. Reynolds has had a surprisingly productive year for the Rockies.

Mark Reynolds finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI versus the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was his 12th homer in 333 at-bats. Reynolds hadn't done much at all during the last month which is concerning, However, with little competition at first base in Colorado, his job hasn't appeared to be in any jeopardy.

Mark Reynolds finished 2-for-4 with a double, home run, and four RBI for the Rockies on Thursday night. Reynolds is now 5-for-19 over the last seven days, with last night's extra-base hits and RBI as his only run production. He has an .820 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: This is now consecutive games that Reynolds has two hits and he now has 28 extra-base hits this season. Although he came into the season off of everyone's radar, his .291 batting average and pace of 53 extra-base hits makes him a viable option at corner infield or first base.

Mark Reynolds was 1-for-4 with a walk-off, two-run home run in Sunday's 9-7 win over the Diamondbacks. Reynolds notched three RBI total in the game with a sac fly earlier on.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds is worth looking at in a couple of different formats. In deep mixed leagues, he can provide a power source or a temporary injury replacement with 1B, 3B and OF eligibility (Yahoo.) In daily leagues for home games, matching him up versus fly-ball pitchers can also be highly lucrative.

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks. It was Reynolds seventh homer of the year and raised his RBI total to 28.

Fantasy Impact: In 224 at-bats, Reynolds is slashing .291/.359/.457 and batting .309/.391/.465 at Coors Field this year. Fantasy owners should ride the wave while he's hot.

Mark Reynolds with two-HR game

Tue, Jun 21st 6:38am EDT
By Blaine Blontz

Mark Reynolds hit a pair of HRs in Monday's win over the Marlins. He finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored and a pair of RBI.

Fantasy Impact: The two-HR effort has pushed Reynolds' OPS back over .800 for the season. He had been struggling before the outburst, and he still only has six HRs on the season. He's maintained a much higher average than his usual mark, and he continues to be able to take walks. Still, with his power numbers lacking overall, his fantasy value as a 1B has been limited this season.

Mark Reynolds smacked his third home run of the year and added a double, two RBI and a run scored on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds is a .232 career hitter who is currently batting .296. Fantasy owners should've known to expect a high number of strikeouts and a few more home runs from Reynolds with the move to hitter-friendly Coors Field. Owners should expect Reynolds batting average to regress, but as long as fantasy owners can stomach the low batting average, the home runs should begin to come.

Mark Reynolds is 5-for-15 against the Red Sox starter on Wednesday, Clay Buchholz, and has two home runs and a double off of the right-handed pitcher. He is also hot this month, as he has a .324 batting average and nine RBI in May. Reynolds has a .824 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: Buchholz's 5.92 ERA could spell a Rockies stack for tonight, but there are not a lot of Colorado players with a lot of experience against Boston's pitcher. Reynolds mashed Buchholz when they were AL East foes and has a respectable seven-game hitting streak. At a minimum, you can expect that hitting streak to extend to eight and you can feel comfortable that he adds extra-base hits and RBI to that tally as well.

Reynolds went 0-for-4 in the Rockies' 4-3 win over the Mets on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds went hitless although without his usual patented strikeouts. He's become manager Walt Weiss' preferred first baseman on the year as he's hitting a healthy .320 with two HRs and 13 RBI on the season. He's a better DFS play than season-long player. The Rockies have Monday off before taking on the Cardinals and LHP Jaime Garcia in St. Louis.

Reynolds went 2-for-3 with two doubles, three RBI and two runs scored in the Rockies' 11-6 win over the Giants on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds got the start at first base against Matt Cain with the lefty Ben Paulsen playing in left for the injured Charlie Blackmon. He is a boom-or-bust type of DFS play who definitely still has some thump left in his bat. He is too streaky to own in season-long formats.

Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a double, run scored and a strikeout in the Rockies' 16-3 loss to the Padres on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds got the start over Ben Paulsen against lefty Drew Pomeranz. He has no mixed league appeal but could be a sneaky DFS play at Coors Field in the right matchup as he's always been a lefty masher. He's still a three-true-outcomes type of player so be ready for all-or-nothing.

The Rockies have signed Reynolds to a one-year contract for $2.6 million plus incentives. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mark Reynolds with game-winning HR

Sat, Jun 13th 11:48pm EDT
By Kerry Motes

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.
