Reynolds is back in the lineup Saturday against the Pirates.

Reynolds was left out of Friday's lineup, but came in to pinch hit in the seventh inning. He'll draw back in Saturday against A.J Burnett. In 13 career at-bats against Burnett, Reynolds has collected five hits, three of which were home runs, and four RBI.

Reynolds is out of Friday's lineup against the Pirates.

Reynolds continues to struggle at the dish, regressing to his typical form of high strikeout totals that's led to just a .218 average in the month of June and just .143 since the calendar turned to July. Dan Johnson will start at first base once again Monday, while Matt Carpenter will slide back over to third base from second with Kolten Wong returning to the lineup.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres.

Reynolds is just 5-for-44 (.114) at the plate in his last 12 games, so it's not overly surprising to see him surrender first base duties to Xavier Scruggs for the second time in three days. The 31-year-old Reynolds has been subject to both hot streaks and extended slumps throughout his career, so this isn't overly surprising to fantasy owners that have dealt with him in the past. With Matt Adams (quad) not expected back anytime soon, Reynolds should at least see consistent reps in the short term -- unless, of course, Scruggs heats up or the team looks to the trade market for first base help.

Reynolds is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Padres.

With right-hander Andrew Cashner on the mound, Reynolds will sit in favor of Xavier Scruggs. Interestingly enough, Scruggs is also a right-handed bat, so the duo doesn't fit as a traditional platoon at first base for the Cards.

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.
