Latest Update Mark Reynolds clubbed his 18th home run in Monday's loss to the Rays Tue Jul, 29, 01:45 AM
Boasts tremendous home run power. Can produce runs in bunches. Is athletic for his size. Can play both third and first base, which adds to his value.
Flaws: : Regularly challenges records for striking out. Could really boost his overall value if he were even slightly more selective. Will commit errors in the field.
Reynolds power surge continued on Monday as he went yard for the second time in two games and fourth time in five to give him 18 for the season. He is now on pace to hit 29 this year while striking out 160 times.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Reynolds power has always been undeniable but his inability to consistently put bat on ball has hurt his fantasy value. Overall on the season Reynolds is hitting just .212 with 38 runs, 17 home runs, 37 RBI and five stolen bases.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Reynolds will never win a batting title, considering he flirts with the Mendoza Line on most occasions, but his power is certainly something that can't be denied. He is now sitting with 16 home runs through his first 276 at-bats, which gives him a three-year high 17.3 AB/HR. However, until he figures out how to hit lefties (.173 BA), he will continue to get platooned, limiting him to use in NL-only leagues at best. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Although Reynolds has shown he still has the pop in his bat to be a big league slugger, his .211 batting average will continue to cost him at-bats as the season progresses. Unless he finds a way to pick up his stat line heading into the All-Star break, his value lies in beer league softball rather than in the fantasy game. Analyst: Matthew Beck
