Mark Reynolds 1B/3B/DH COL 3 days ago

Reynolds went 3-for-6 with a double, a homer, two RBI and two runs against the Pirates on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Finally, in his 10th game at Coors Field this year, Reynolds knocked a ball out for the first time; he's got a road homer to his credit as well. The veteran first baseman is now hitting .375 in his new home digs, making him an appetizing fantasy play in daily formats, particularly when the Rockies are facing lefties in Colorado.

Reynolds is out of Saturday's lineup against the Dodgers, SB Nation's Eric Stephen reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With a righty on the mound for the Dodgers, the Rockies will go with a lefty-heavy lineup, starting Ben Paulsen at first base and Ryan Raburn in left field. There are worse players than Reynolds to start at corner infield in deep mixed leagues, but he is something of a last-ditch option, considering his playing time is inconsistent, and he doesn't have much recent success to point to.

Reynolds homered as part of a 2-for-3 game with two runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds continues to platoon at first base with Ben Paulsen, but in daily leagues, Reynolds and his huge power -- especially against left-handed pitching -- is enticing, particularly with half his games coming at Coors Field this season. Tuesday's performance has his line up to .281/.361/.500.

Reynolds went 2-for-3 with two singles in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Cubs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 32-year-old first baseman managed his second consecutive multi-hit start. He continues to platoon with lefty Ben Paulsen, and has been adequate at the plate so far this season. Reynolds has reached base safely in five straight, and is posting a respectable .280/.357/.400 line over his first 25 at-bats.

Reynolds is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds got another start against a right-hander Tuesday night, but he'll take a seat on the bench with right-hander Jake Peavy on the bump for the Giants. Reynolds has cooled off significantly since spring training, which could harm his playing time against right-handed pitchers going forward. Ben Paulsen will start at first base in his stead.

Reynolds is not in the lineup Sunday against the Padres, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds has been awarded the majority of starts in his platoon with Ben Paulsen, but will take a seat Sunday for just the second time this season. The Padres are sending tough right James Shields to the hill for the afternoon contest, so manager Walt Weiss likely wanted to get another left-handed bat in his lineup by electing to roll with Paulsen, who will bat seventh in the order.

Reynolds is not in the lineup Tuesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds surprisingly got the Opening Day start over Ben Paulsen despite the fact that a right-hander was pitching, but he'll take a seat in the Rockies' second game with right-hander Shelby Miller scheduled to start. Manager Walt Weiss has insisted that the first base situation will not be a strict platoon and will only be based off of who's hitting better, which could bode well for Reynolds for the start of the season given his hot spring showing.

Reynolds is starting at first base against the Rockies on Monday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After posting a monster spring stat-line and given his history of home runs at Chase Field, manager Walt Weiss decided to go against the platoon and start Reynolds at first base over lefty Ben Paulsen. It's unclear if Weiss is planning on doing this more frequently this season, but it would definitely boost Reynolds' value if he's trusted enough to get in the lineup against right-handers every now and then.

Reynolds is slashing .341/.431/.545 this spring and could steal the Opening Day start from Ben Paulsen even though right-hander Zack Greinke is on the mound, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds has been hitting very well this spring and even has walked more times than he's struck out (6 BB, 5 SO). Paulsen has not been having a bad spring by any means, but his .676 OPS pales in comparison to Reynolds' torrid spring stat line. If the 32-year-old slugger can keep the strikeouts down and his batting average up like he has this spring, he could be one of the biggest surprises of the 2016 season.

Reynolds is 8-for-26 with eight RBI, four runs, and two home runs in 10 spring games.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds is going about his typical power-hitting ways this spring, as four of his eight hits have gone for extra bases. He's also been fairly good in the plate discipline department, posting an even 3:3 BB/K ratio. He'll look to keep this success going during the regular season as he takes his place on the short side of a platoon with Ben Paulsen at first base.
