Description: Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds has struck out in 55 percent of his at-bats versus Giants starter Jake Peavy (11 of 20).
Insight: Even for the strikeout-prone Reynolds, that's a lot. He has managed just three hits, all singles. Reynolds is from the" Adam Dunn school of hitting" with 19 homers and 105 strikeouts in 304 at-bats. Avoid this matchup.

Insight: Reynolds went 1-for-3 with a solo shot Monday at Tampa Bay. He's hitting .210 with 18 dingers, 38 RBI, 39 runs and a .722 OPS in 290 at-bats this season, so he's not a good fantasy option in most leagues.

Description: Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds connected for two home runs Wednesday against the Reds.
Insight: Reynolds (16 HR, 36 RBI, 36 R) still has solid pop, but not enough to get us to overlook his .207 average.
6/4/2014 11:51:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee third baseman Mark Reynolds has struggled mightily (.133, 2-for-15, 10 strikeouts) against Minnesota right-hander Ricky Nolasco in his career.
Insight: While Reynolds has provided a source of cheap power (13 HR), it has come at the expense of a very low average (.205) and on-base percentage (.287). To further complicate things, the Brewers are activating Aramis Ramirez from the disabled list tonight and he's expected to play third, so it would be smart to sit Reynolds on the bench for this one.
5/23/2014 10:25:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee first baseman Mark Reynolds slugged two homers Friday in a win against the Marlins.

5/1/2014 2:46:00 PM
Description: Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds will make his second outfield start of the season on Thursday.
Insight: Reynolds has six homers this season, though of course he's hitting a lowly .224 with 31 Ks in 76 at-bats. He's been platooning at first base with Lyle Overbay, but the injury to Ryan Braun allows both men to be in the lineup.

Description: Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds went 1-for-2 with a homer, two walks and two RBI Wednesday at St. Louis.
Insight: Reynolds has six homers this season, though of course he's hitting .224 with 31 Ks in 76 at-bats. The first baseman hit a homer every 15.2 at-bats from 2008-11 and averaged 35 per season in that span, but one every 20.5 at-bats in 2012-13. Obviously, his low batting average was much more tolerable from 2008-11. So far, though, his power is back.

3/29/2014 10:39:00 AM
Description: Mark Reynolds has been named to Milwaukee's Opening Day roster.
Insight: Reynolds, who seems to wind up on a new team each year, hit .226 this spring with 2 HR and 11 RBI in 53 at bats. He and Lyle Overbay are going to platoon at first base. Reynolds (.236, 6 HR, 19 RBI for the Yankees in 2013) should play whenever the Brewers have to face a left-handed starting pitcher.
1/17/2014 11:25:00 AM
Description: Infielder Mark Reynolds has been signed by the Milwaukee Brewers to a minor league contract, but is expected to make the Opening Day roster, according to beat writerTom Haudricourt.
Insight: If Reynolds shows anything in spring training he could see a lot of the workload at first base and even backup Aramis Ramirez at third. We know he has power, but he'll have to work on making more consistent contact. He hasn't seen a batting average above .221 since 2009.
9/5/2013 10:57:00 AM
