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.
Reynolds went 4-for-5 with a double and three runs scored against the Marlins on Friday.
He leads all rookies with a .364 batting average and is slashing .408/.468/.663 in 109 plate appearances since May 17. After coming off the bench Tuesday and Wednesday, Reynolds has collected seven hits in his last 11 at-bats. He's hit second in the lineup in June after primarily batting fifth in May. The Pirates reportedly would like to trade outfielder Corey Dickerson, but Reynolds is making it difficult for the team to sit him while showcasing the 30-year-old veteran.
Reynolds went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI, a run and walk in a 6-5 loss to the Braves on Thursday.
The rookie came into Thursday afternoon 1-for-8 in the series versus the Braves, but he raised his average back up to .350 with three hits during the matinee. Reynolds only has five homers, but he's produced 14 doubles and two triples to post a sparking .561 slugging percentage and .964 OPS this season. Although he does not yet qualify for the batting title race, Reynolds leads the Pirates in average and has 23 RBI with 24 runs in 157 at-bats during 2019.
Reynolds will start in left field and bat second against the Braves on Thursday.
The rookie will be making his first start in three games. The return of Corey Dickerson has taken away some of Reynolds' playing time. Without full-time action, it will be interesting to see whether the thrifty Pirates consider sending him back to Triple-A -- provided the remaining outfielders stay healthy. Reynolds has exceeded expectations with a slash line of .340/.392/.542 in 166 plate appearances, but he'll have difficulty maintaining such lofty numbers. The switch hitter has never faced Thursday's starter Julio Teheran, though he's batting .333 with three homers and 17 RBI against right-handed pitchers.
Reynolds is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.
Reynolds will take a seat Wednesday after starting the past nine games and slashing an impressive .343/.361/.486 in those contests. In his place, Corey Dickerson is starting in left field and hitting second.
Reynolds is expected to serve as one of team's primary starting outfielders, even with the return of Corey Dickerson (shoulder), 93.7 The Fan reports.
The rookie extended his batting streak to 17 games with two hits Sunday, raising his slash line to .352/.405/.552 in 145 at-bats. General manager Neal Huntington said that he's not concerned with Reynolds' Super 2 arbitration status, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the team send the outfielder back to Triple-A Indianapolis in the event of a slump, given the team's current glut of outfielders. For now, though, the hot-hitting Reynolds will continue to play on a near everyday basis.
Reynolds went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in Friday's loss to the Brewers.
Reynolds plated a run in the third inning on a double to right field, and he struck again in the top of the eighth with another RBI double. Although he was picked off second base after his first two-bagger, he's making the Pirates' looming outfield decision a tough one. Gold Glove left fielder Corey Dickerson is expected to be activated Saturday, and it remains to be seen what the team does with five healthy outfielders. For his part, Reynolds is slashing .350/.407/.562 with five homers and 20 RBI through 42 games in 2019.
Reynolds is not in Saturday's lineup against the Brewers.
He is hitting .404 with four home runs, 16 runs, 12 RBI, 11 strikeouts and eight walks over his last 15 games. Melky Cabrera starts in left field, hitting fifth against righty Brandon Woodruff.
Reynolds (ankle) will start in left field and bat second Wednesday against the Reds.
Reynolds appeared to hurt his right ankle when he fouled a ball off himself after coming on as a pinch hitter in Tuesday's 11-6 win. After singling in his first at-bat of the night, Reynolds drew a walk in his subsequent plate appearance, but was lifted for a pinch runner due to the ankle issue. The rookie apparently checked out fine upon showing up to the ballpark Wednesday, so he'll re-enter the lineup in the series finale.
