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.

Reynolds is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers.

Reynolds will start at first base Sunday afternoon against the Reds.

Reynolds has struck out in his only two at-bats this season, but he'll get his chance Sunday in favor of Matt Adams, who will receive the day off. Reynolds is the definition of a hit-or-miss player, as he's logged 20 or more homers in each of the past three seasons, but has struck out at a clip of 31.9 percent on his career.

Reynolds will get some time in left field for the remainder of spring training, reports.

If Reynolds can prove capable of handling the position it should help him get into the lineup more often, or at the very least a consistent lineup spot against lefties.

Reynolds, who signed with the Cardinals in December, is prepared to see a dip in his playing time, reports.

Reynolds will get most of his looks against lefties but could be limited in that regard as well if Matt Adams hits well. He has limited experience in the outfield and can play third as well so given Matt Carpenter's flexibility Reynolds should see some time there, too. He's never started fewer than 102 games in a season, a streak that's likely to come to end in 2015.

Reynolds agreed to a contract with the Cardinals on Thursday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Reynolds will head to St. Louis after spending last season with the division rival Brewers. He will provide a right-handed compliment to Matt Adams at first base, and Matt Carpenter at the hot corner.

Reynolds is out of the Brewers' lineup again Thursday.

Playing time has all but dried up for Reynolds, as he's set to sit Thursday for the sixth time in seven games. The 31-year-old may see starts against lefties over the final weeks of the season, but Matt Clark is starting his second straight game Thursday and manager Ron Roenicke may be inclined to give him most of the time at first base.

Reynolds is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.

Reynolds has only been seeing about half the at-bats at first base over the past couple weeks, and he'll sit in favor of Matt Clark on Wednesday. While he might have more power potential than anyone on waivers in most leagues, it's hard to own him in standard leagues when the at-bats are unpredictable and his batting average is so devastating (.196).
