Mark Reynolds' contract selected by Rockies
The Rockies have selected Mark Reynolds' contract from Triple-A Albuquerque.
The Rockies have been plagued by injuries so far this year, and it has presented Mark Reynolds with a great opportunity. With Ian Desmond out with a broken left hand, it looks like Reynolds will begin the season as the starter at first base. His power bat at Coors Field could provide some value in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues while Desmond is on the DL.
Mark Reynolds re-signs with Rockies
The Rockies re-signed Mark Reynolds to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to MLB camp.
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.
Mark Reynolds to miss the remainder of the season
Mark Reynolds will miss the remainder of the season with a broken left hand.
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.
Mark Reynolds hits home run on Monday
Mark Reynolds blasted a solo homer in the 10th inning on Sunday, propelling the Rockies to a 3-2 victory over the Padres in San Diego.
Reynolds is slashing .282/.355/.447 with 13 homers and 51 RBI. Many fantasy owners did not expect his productive play to last all season, but Reynolds has been quietly productive all season long.
Mark Reynolds likely out for the rest of the season
Mark Reynolds is expected to miss around 4-8 weeks, so his status for the rest of the season is up in the air.
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.
