Mark Reynolds 1B/3B/DH COL 4 days ago

Reynolds went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a strikeout against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The power-hitting first baseman has hit an impressive .318 during the season, but he's not likely to sustain that number considering his previous career high of .279 came in 2007. However, he remains Colorado's most dangerous hitter, and he seems to have sacrificed a bit of power for more contact with only two home runs in 2016.

Reynolds is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds was not in the lineup for Sunday's postponed game, but the Rockies decided that the unexpected team off day was enough of a rest, and inserted him back into the lineup Monday. Reynolds will man first base and hit fifth against Pirates starter Ryan Vogelsong.

Reynolds is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, according to MLB.com's Thomas Harding.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds is riding a four-game hitting streak and is hitting .339 in May, but manager Walt Weiss decided to give him a day off after starting each of the last nine games. Daniel Descalso will get the start at first base in Reynolds' place.

Reynolds is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ben Paulsen will take Reynolds' spot at first base and bat seventh in the order Tuesday against Arizona righty Rubby De La Rosa. Reynolds has actually hit right-handed pitching surprisingly well this season (.291 AVG, .835 OPS), but Paulsen adds another left-handed bat to the bottom of the order against De La Rosa, who has a career .292 batting average against and .863 OPS against when facing lefties.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds has taken ownership of the platoon with Ben Paulsen ever since Charlie Blackmon returned to the lineup, but he'll get a regular day of rest Sunday afternoon. Coors field has certainly been good to Reynolds this season, as his .333 batting average through 25 games is over 100 points higher than his career mark of .232. He's bolstered that mark significantly in his last four games, going 8-for-18 at the dish. With numbers like that, don't expect Paulsen to pose a long-term threat to his playing time any time soon.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Reynolds had enjoyed a relatively firm grip on the first base job while Charlie Blackmon was on the DL, as his counterpart, Ben Paulsen, was receiving regular starts in the outfield. With Blackmon back in his regular role, however, the competition at first base might start to heat up, and it will be Paulsen that draws the start Sunday afternoon. Reynolds has been performing admirably at the plate, however, owning a three-game hitting streak, though his 31.6 percent strikeout rate is right in line with his career average. It will likely take more than a couple solid games from Paulsen to put the playing time of Reynolds at risk.

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.
