Reynolds is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Reynolds knocked in a run and drew two walks during Saturday's game, but he will give way to Ryan McMahon at first base as the Rockies look to avoid being swept by the Marlins.
Reynolds (hand) is back in the lineup Friday, starting at first base and batting fifth against the Marlins, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Reynolds didn't start Wednesday's game against the Indians, but came off the bench to get two at-bats while taking over at first base. Now, after Thursday's travel day, it appears the veteran slugger is good to go in time for Friday's series opener. Reynolds is hitting .253 with four home runs since the All-Star break, but still presents a power option in the middle of a vaunted Rockies' lineup.
Reynolds is out of the lineup Wednesday due to a hand injury that he suffered during Tuesday's loss to the Indians, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Reynolds was able to stay in the game after injuring his left hand at first base while diving at the base to make a tag during a sixth-inning groundout by Jose Ramirez. It appears to be a minor issue, and with the Rockies receiving a scheduled off day Thursday, Reynolds could return to the lineup Friday after giving his hand two days to heal.
Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over the Mets. Reynolds has drastic home-road splits this season, and this was his 17th homer at Coors Field compared to just six on the road. He sports a solid .284/.370/.522 slash line for the campaign, but again, his .712 OPS away from Coors highlights his production dip on the road. If the luxury exists to utilize him only in home games, Reynolds' value is much higher.
Reynolds is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Reynolds will sit the first tilt of the doubleheader for his third game off in the team's past eight contests. The 33-year-old first baseman is having a superb season but is hitting just .244 with three home runs during the month of July. Gerardo Parra will draw the start at first base with Raimel Tapia taking over in left field.
