Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a walk and three runs in Friday's 17-13 loss to Detroit. After starting the season with three hits in his first 30 at-bats, Reynolds is hitting .400 in his last 15 at-bats. The left fielder has contributed with a league-leading four outfield assists but is now back to producing on offense. Reynolds, who holds a .320 career batting average against right-handed pitchers, will face Detroit righty Ivan Nova on Saturday afternoon.
Reynolds went 0-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 5-4 loss to Minnesota. He's batting .129 in 31 at-bats with a 6:12 BB:K. Reynolds has collected just two extra-base hits (both doubles) and has whiffed 12 times in his last eight games. The 25-year-old has never batted below .300 since turning pro in 2016, however, so there's hope for a rebound. Tuesday marks the first time Reynolds will face starter Jose Berrios.
Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs. Reynolds started the first eight games of the season in left field but will receive the day off Sunday as he is 4-for-27. Phillips Evans receives the start in left field for the Pirates.
Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in Tuesday's 8-6 win over Milwaukee. The hits were the first of 2020 for Reynolds, who entered the contest in an 0-for-13 funk. He batted fifth in the lineup for the second straight time after slotting second in the first three games. The outfielder showed off his all-around ability, gunning down a go-ahead baserunner at home plate in a tied game.
Reynolds will bat second and play left field Sunday against St. Louis. He's off to a rough start, going 0-for-7 with a walk through two games. Reynolds is making solid contact, however, with a pair of deep drives to the warning track. He never went three straight starts without a hit in 2019, though he's hitless in five career at-bats (with two walks) against starter Dakota Hudson.
