Reynolds is not in Thursday's lineup for the Rockies contest with Arizona, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Reynolds getting the day off, Ian Desmond moves over to tackle first base while Raimel Tapia takes over in left. In Wednesday's loss, Reynolds went 2-for-3 and notched his first home run since June 10. The first baseman will likely be back in the lineup for Friday's clash with the Dodgers.

Reynolds slugged his 18th homer as part of a 2-for-3 effort Wednesday, adding a walk in a 16-5 loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The outcome wasn't very good for the Rockies, but Reynolds' owners are surely glad to see this, as he'd gone 6-for-29 (.207) without a homer in his prior eight games. An afterthought in most fantasy drafts, he's surprisingly once again one of the most valuable hitters in the league -- something that hasn't been the case in quite a long time.

Reynolds went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs during Saturday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds just continues to hit, so while there may be long-term playing time concerns once David Dahl (ribs) and Gerardo Parra (quadriceps) return from the disabled list, it's difficult to imagine Colorado not locking one of its go-to producers into the lineup while contending for the division title. The veteran sports a sterling .309/.386/.581 slash line, and his 17 home runs and 53 RBI are tied for first and rank second in the National League, respectively.

Reynolds went 2-for-5 with a pair of homers and five RBI against the Indians on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Rockies are off to a great start, and Reynolds' steady power bat has been a big reason why. His 162-game paces are ridiculous -- 46 homers, 147 RBI, 101 runs -- even with the 13-game hitting slump (.184/.231/.327) he experienced before this game. Playing his home games at Coors should enable Reynolds to continue hitting for solid average, too; his current .299 mark is a career high, and he hit .282 last year, his first with the Rockies.

Reynolds is out of the lineup Saturday against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He has really cooled off of late, hitting .206 with a 27.8 percent strikeout rate over his last nine games. Ian Desmond starts at first base and hit fifth, and Reynolds could continue to lose out on at-bats if his bat doesn't heat up in the short term. In the long term, he will almost certainly lose out on at-bats when David Dahl (ribs) eventually returns.

Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Thursday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran matched his 14 home runs from 2016 in less than half the plate appearances and sports an impressive .307/.380/.556 slash line. It probably wise to expect Reynolds to slow down over the coming months, but he's also sporting a career-low 23.0 strikeout percentage, and Coors Field is fantasy buoy. Additionally, Reynolds has already banked two months of elite production, so there is plenty of room for negative regression before his virtual stock is in jeopardy.

Reynolds went 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI in Sunday's 8-4 win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Reynolds continues to produce at an impressive rate, moving into a tie for second in the National League in RBI. After a strong start in the month of April, Reynolds has put together an excellent month of May. In 22 games during the month, Reynolds is slashing .338/.427/.532. His OPS of .965 for the season ranks 12th in the National League. Strikeouts will always be a part of Reynolds' game, but he is striking out a career-best 22.7 percent this season. If he continues that trend, Reynolds will put up big numbers for Colorado.

Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 10-0 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The blast was his team-leading 13th of the season, leaving him one shy of his total from last season, but it was also his first since May 9. Reynolds enjoyed a fast start to 2016 before fading over the summer, hitting .307 in April and May but .234 in June and July, and a similar pattern may be about to repeat itself this year.

Reynolds is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Ben Harris of Phillies.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite his impeccable .319/.396/.575 line on the season, Reynolds will take a seat for the second game in a row with Rockies manager Bud Black looking to get an extra left-handed bat (Gerardo Parra) in the lineup to counter Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson. Reynolds has proven his worth against both right- and left-handed pitching this season, so it's too early to conclude that he's fallen into the small side of a platoon with Parra. If Reynolds struggles in his subsequent starts, however, a platoon role could become more realistic.

Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a walk and 3 RBI in Friday's win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

It was another productive day for the veteran, who has now upped his RBI total on the season to 38. The .329/.407/.610 slash line and 1.017 OPS are certainly impressive, and even with a .367 BABIP, it is reasonable to assume that Reynolds should continue to produce while playing at Coors Field.
