Reynolds is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds will open on the bench Saturday for the second straight day with Ian Desmond again starting at first base. Reynolds has been the Rockies' primary first baseman for most of the year, but he seems to be ceding that spot to Desmond as the regular season winds down, at least against right-handed pitchers.

Reynolds is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds will take a seat for the third time in six games as him and Ian Desmond continue to share starts at first base. He's had a slow start to September, slashing just .170/.235/.298 with one homer in 13 games, but the veteran slugger still figures to see his fair share of starts down the stretch.

Reynolds is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds will get the day off after drawing five consecutive starts at first base, going just 3-for-22 (.136) with one homer during that span. The 34-year-old slugger has been a surprise source of production this season after joining the Rockies on a minor-league deal in spring training, slashing 266./.352/.492 with 29 homers and 93 RBI through 136 games. He'll continue to see his fair share of starts down the stretch, but Ian Desmond will take over for him at first base for Thursday's series finale.

Reynolds went 1-for-5 with a grand slam in Sunday's win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

He put this one out of reach, extending the Rockies' lead from two runs to six with his eighth-inning homer off Walker Buehler. It was Reynolds' first home run of September, but he has 10 in the second half and 29 for the season. The 34-year-old is approaching his career high of 102 RBI.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds has started seven of the last eight games at first base, but the veteran will sit in favor of Ryan McMahon for the series finale. In his last three games, Reynolds has produced zero base hits and five strikeouts, and although he's always been a high-strikeout player, a maintenance day may be overdue in this instance.

Reynolds is not in Wednesday's lineup against Detroit, Max Gelman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The slugger is heating up again, slashing .300/.361/.733 with four homers and 10 RBI in his last 10 games despite only starting in eight of them. Reynolds' .878 OPS on the year remains his best mark since 2009, and with 27 homers he's well on his way to his first 30-HR campaign since 2011.
