Reynolds went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two walks while scoring three runs in Tuesday's victory over the Angels.
The rookie just keeps hitting, collecting his fourth game of three or more hits in August and raising his league-leading batting average to .338. After hitting .256 in July, he has gone 19-for-44 this month while belting four homers and scoring 15 runs.
Reynolds went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 10-2 win over the Angels.
Reynolds has enjoyed a productive start to August, going 16-for-40 (.400 average) with three home runs and four RBI in his 10 games this month. The rookie's .410 BABIP sits well above his .333 batting average, but most Statcast metrics suggest that there's been plenty of reality to how Reynolds has performed at the dish this season. Most notably, his expected batting average (.295) ranks in the 94th percentile of all qualified hitters.
Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 4-3 loss against the Brewers on Tuesday.
Although it dropped his average, Reynolds had another productive night, posting his second straight game with a home run. Reynolds has pulled himself out of his July slump, going 10-for-20 (.500) in the last five games and hitting four homers in the past nine contests. He is batting .335 with 11 home runs, 46 RBI, 56 runs and one stolen base in 310 at-bats this season.
Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a double and his 10th home run against the Brewers on Monday.
He also robbed Mike Moustakas of a homer with a fine defensive play. With 347 plate appearances, Reynolds now qualifies for the batting title race -- no rookie has won the NL batting title in modern times. He's slashing .337/.409/.523 and has proven to be one of the few pleasant surprises on Pittsburgh's roster. The switch hitter is batting .350/.427/.538 from the left side and .301/.359/.482 from the right.
Reynolds went 4-for-4 with a double, a walk and three runs Saturday in the Pirates' 7-5 loss to the Mets.
After another multi-hit performance, Reynolds' season-long average now sits at .333, which would place him second in the National League behind the Mets' Jeff McNeil (.334) if he had enough plate appearances to qualify. With only nine home runs and one steal, Reynolds isn't providing an abundance of value elsewhere, but the huge boost he offers in batting average is substantial enough to make him rosterable in just about any traditional 5x5 format. He'll stick in the lineup in left field and as the Pirates' No. 2 hitter in Sunday's series finale.
Reynolds went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk during an 8-7 loss against the Mets on Sunday.
His homer was one of two long balls the Pirates hit in the ninth, but the Mets still held on for a one-run win. While Reynolds' average is still sinking, it was nice to see him display some power. He's batting .253 with five extra-base hits in July, so he's lost 25 points off his average. Reynolds is batting .326 with a .498 slugging percentage, eight home runs, 42 RBI and 44 runs in 279 at-bats this season.
Reynolds is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cardinals.
Reynolds was bound to cool off at the plate at some point, and he has hit .246/.355/.338 with one home run and one steal in 18 games this month. Corey Dickerson, Starling Marte and Melky Cabrera will start in the outfield from left to right.
Reynolds went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts against the Phillies on Sunday.
Despite his rough day at the plate, he hit a pair of pitches just wide of the left-field foul pole that carried home run distance. The rookie is batting .242/.347/.323 with one homer and 10 RBI since June 28, a span of 72 plate appearances. He's started in 15 of 16 games in July and could be due for a break in the near future.
Reynolds went 3-for-4 with a double in a 7-0 loss to the Cardinals on Monday.
After a 5-for-32 slide, Reynolds has collected five hits in his last eight at-bats. He's hitting .343 with a .428 BABIP. With 267 plate appearances, he is now less than 20 PA away from qualifying for the batting title. While the rookie's batting average will likely cool off in the second half, it's interesting to note that he hit better than .300 in each of his four minor-league seasons.
Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in a 6-5 victory against the Brewers on Sunday.
The rookie had been slumping a bit coming into the afternoon, but he capped off a surprisingly strong first half with another incredible effort that led to a key Pirates victory. Although he deserved more consideration than he received, Reynolds is not headed to the All-Star Game, which might be a blessing in disguise because he could probably use a break. After batting .369 in June, he's begun this month hitting .227. Despite the slow start to July, he's hitting .342 with 27 extra-base hits, including seven homers, 33 RBI and 38 runs in 222 at-bats this season.
Reynolds went 0-for-4 against the Cubs on Thursday and has one hit in his last 17 at-bats.
He has six hits in 28 at-bats since getting hit on the shin by a pitch June 23. Reynolds' batting average sat at a lofty .362 that day, so it's not surprising that he's cooled off, regardless of circumstance. Gregory Polanco (shoulder) isn't expected back until after the All-Star break, so look for the rookie to split playing time with Melky Cabrera in the interim. Reynolds is slashing .338/.403/.521 with six homers and 29 RBI in 238 plate appearances.
Reynolds is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
Reynolds has an excellent .382/.478/.527 slash line over his last 15 games, but the Pirates' crowded outfield means that he's been on the bench for two of the last four games. Melky Cabrera gets the nod in right field.
Reynolds is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Milwaukee.
Reynolds started the last three contests after missing a couple games with a shin issue and went 3-for-11 with a double and two walks. Melky Cabrera will take over in right field and bat fifth in the series finale.
Reynolds went 3-for-4 with a double and a walk in Friday's 3-2 win over the Brewers.
Reynolds, who raised his batting average to .362, has 20 hits (plus seven walks) in his last 43 at-bats. He went hitless Thursday in his first game back from an HBP suffered Sunday, but then came through with his sixth mult-hit effort in his last 11 contests Friday.
Reynolds will bat second and play right field Thursday afternoon against the Astros.
The rookie returns for the first time since getting hit by a pitch on his right calf/shin Sunday afternoon. Reynolds is slashing .362/.418/.564 with six homers and 28 RBI in 188 at-bats. He's hitting .389 with one home run and 11 RBI in June.
Reynolds (shin) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros.
Reynolds will remain on the bench for a second straight game as he continues to deal with a shin injury. The outfielder said he believes the injury is minor, a notion confirmed by the fact that he's available off the bench, per Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic. Melky Cabrera is starting in right field in this one.
Reynolds declined to reveal the nature of his injury, but said after Tuesday's game that he isn't dealing with anything major, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Reynolds was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with what Bob Pompeani of KDKA TV reports is a shin injury. He was also hit by a 90-mph pitch Sunday. Batting right-handed, the pitch first grazed behind his left knee and then made solid contact with the left side of his right calf. Regardless, it sounds like we will see him back on the field soon. While it's hard to imagine anyone catching Pete Alonso for NL Rookie of the Year, Reynolds is having a tremendous rookie season in his own right, leading all major-league players with at least 200 plate appearances in batting average with a .362 mark.
Reynolds was scratched from the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros for undisclosed reasons.
Melky Cabrera will move out to right field, with Jose Osuna entering the lineup at first base and Josh Bell serving as the designated hitter. It's not clear if Reynolds is expected to miss an extended period.
Reynolds went 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBI and a run scored while also being hit by a pitch in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Padres.
Reynolds drove in a run on a sacrifice fly in the third inning before adding another RBI during Pittsburgh's three-run ninth inning with a single. The 24-year-old outfielder has been dialed in at the plate this month, slashing .389/.444/.556 with nine extra-base hits (seven doubles, a triple and a homer), 11 RBI and 13 runs scored in 20 games.
Reynolds went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and two additional runs scored in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Tigers.
His sixth-inning blast completed the comeback after the Pirates had fallen behind 7-1 in the top of the third. Reynolds is now slashing a blistering .393/.448/.574 through 17 games in June, and despite the crowded outfield picture in Pittsburgh, the rookie is proving to be difficult to remove from the everyday lineup.
