Mark Reynolds 1B/3B STL 1 day ago

Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

After Xavier Scruggs went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Saturday's spot start, he'll get another whirl at first base at the expense of Reynolds, who sits for a second straight day. Though Scruggs is rather unproven at the big-league level and isn't a major prospect, Reynolds' own recent struggles (0-for-11 with four strikeouts in his last three games) may lead manager Mike Matheny to employ a timeshare at the position.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

Reynolds has gone 0-for-11 in his last three contests with the Cardinals, and will receive what appears to be a standard day off Saturday. Xavier Scruggs will start at first base in his place, and will bat seventh for the Cardinals.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

Reynolds has taken over primary first base duties since Matt Adams went on the DL. The 31-year-old has played in five straight games, but considering his microscopic line against Phillies starter Aaron Harang (3-for-16 in his career) today seems like a good time for a day off. Xavier Scruggs will replace Reynolds in the lineup and bat seventh in the order.

Reynolds went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo shot off of Twins' starter Trevor May in the win Monday.

Reynolds has been solid since taking over full-time at first base in Matt Adams absence, hitting .271/.358/.407 in 59 at-bats since Adams went down with an injury. He makes for a decent flier at first base in most leagues.

Reynolds went 2-for-4 Saturday with two runs scored and a solo shot, his fourth home run of the season.

It's his first home run since taking over from Matt Adams (quad) as the Cards' regular first baseman, but Reynolds is hitting a respectable .272 (15-for-55) since Adams landed on the DL. Until Reynolds regains his power stroke, however, his fantasy value will be limited.

Reynolds will start at first base and bat seventh Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

With Matt Adams hitting the 15-day DL with a right quadriceps strain, Reynolds is in line to see regular time at first base for St. Louis. Reynolds is batting .226 against right-handed pitching in small sample this year (7-for-31), but that's right near his career mark (.230), and though he only three home runs in 96 at-bats, there's reason to think he'll be a decent source of power for those in deep mixed and NL-only formats in the weeks ahead.

Reynolds started in left field and hit fifth in the Cardinals' lineup on Sunday, going 1-for-5 with his first home run of the season.

The slugger has mostly been limited to pinch-hit duty this season, but got the start on Sunday with Matt Holiday taking the day off. Reynolds likely won't see consistent at-bats this season, but could be worth a look as a streaming option for power if he does get an extended run in the lineup for any reason.
