Reynolds (hand) took live batting practice off Rockies pitchers Tuesday and is healthy heading into spring training, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds broke his hand after being hit by a pitch in mid-September, but he seems to be back to full health after an offseason of rest. Barring any extraneous circumstances, the veteran seems to be in line to compete for a job to back up Ian Desmond at first base.

Reynolds agreed to a minor league contract with the Rockies on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's pretty likely that he'll end up in the majors again, as he hit .282 with a solid .806 OPS across 441 games as the Rockies primary first baseman in 2016. Although with his impressive power comes a high number of whiffs, as the 33-year-old struck out over 100 times last season for the 10th time in as many years. He will likely serve as the backup to Ian Desmond in 2017, who Colorado brought in as a free agent this offseason. He will offer depth at first, and will be available for when the Rockies look to flex Desmond into the outfield, where he has primarily played in previous years.

Reynolds (hand) will not require surgery, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Still, Reynolds is unlikely to return to the Rockies in 2016. This is good news for his availability for spring training and Opening Day next year, but with just two weeks in the season, there just isn't enough time for Reynolds to satisfactorily rehab from a fracture.

Reynolds (hand) is likely out for the rest of the season, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds was hit by a pitch in the left hand Sunday, and the veteran first baseman reportedly knew it was bad as soon as the injury occurred. He's slated to be reevaluated Monday to see if the ailment requires surgery, but no matter if he opts for surgery or not, Reynolds will likely not return this season. The 33-year-old will finish the season with 14 home runs, 53 RBI, and a career-high .282 batting average, which could appeal to some teams looking for a right-handed power bat in the offseason.

Reynolds went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Colorado's 6-3 win over the Padres, but exited early after getting in the head by a pitch.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds keyed Colorado's five-run third inning with a two-run shot -- his 14th long ball of the year. There was a scary moment in his next at-bat, however, as he was hit in the head by a pitch. He immediately got back up after falling to the ground and appeared to be fine, but he was removed from the game for precautionary reasons. Consider him day-to-day for now, though it's possible he may not miss any time.

Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a game-winning solo home run in Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds broke a 2-2 tie in the 10th inning with a solo shot off Kevin Quackenbush, propelling Colorado to an extra-inning victory. The home run was his first since returning from the disabled list on August 31, as manager Walt Weiss has opted to use him in a reserve role. The 33-year-old still has the ability to impact a game with his power whenever he's in the lineup, however, as he demonstrated Sunday. He now has 13 long balls and 51 RBI to go along with a .282/.355/.447 slash line.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Jenny Cavnar of ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain Region reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Reynolds (hand) was activated from the 15-day DL on Wednesday, he's been limited to a bench role in each of the Rockies' last five games. That may remain the case throughout September while manager Walt Weiss looks to find room in the lineup for Gerardo Parra, who has been squeezed out of regular duties in the outfield following the emergence of David Dahl.

Reynolds (hand) was reinstated from the 15-day DL on Wednesday, the Denver Post's Nick Kosmider reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he is active Wednesday, he is not in the lineup, as Gerardo Parra will get the start at first base. The Rockies have been getting Parra's bat in the lineup there of late, with a full outfield, so Reynolds should occupy a part-time role over the rest of the season. Daniel Descalso was placed on the paternity list as a corresponding move.

Reynolds (hand) is expected to miss up to eight weeks with a broken bone, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds is scheduled to have surgery Monday and a return during the 2016 campaign is far from certain. The team has said that his recovery time is expected to range from four to eight weeks, but a more specific timeframe should be known after his surgery. During Reynolds's absence, Ben Paulson will likely get the bulk of the starts at first base.

Reynolds indeed has a broken hamate bone in his left hand, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rockies moved Reynolds to the disabled list Friday, recalling Ben Paulsen in a corresponding move, and later confirmed that Reynolds did break his hamate bone Thursday. An estimated timetable for his return was not immediately offered up but it's hard to imagine Reynolds will be back after the minimum 15 days, if at all this season.
