Profile: When he was in Arizona, Mark Reynolds was a very useful player. In his four years there, from 2007-2010, he was worth 8.1 WAR. In the following six years, he has played for six teams, and been worth 1.9 WAR, which is quite interesting considering that in 2014 he was worth 1.6 WAR. Said differently, in five of the past six years, Reynolds has been a replacement-level player. Still, he manages to find work. He doesn't have much of a platoon split - for his career, he has been an above-average hitter against both lefties (109 wRC+) and righties (103 wRC+). He has enough pop to be a threat, and while he strikes out plenty, he doesn't have a fatal flaw. If you look at his career defensive summary, you'd think he was a terrible fielder, given his -63.4 Fld. But much of that stems from being allowed to play third base for longer than he was capable. He's been just fine as a first baseman since shifting there full-time - from 2012-2016, he has posted a -1.4 UZR and a +2 DRS. In the past four seasons, he's even managed to log 15 harmless innings at second base. Mark Reynolds is the spitting image of the phrase, "he's fine." Regardless of the minor league deal he signed with the Rockies, nothing he did in 2016 showed a marked degradation of his skills. He'll eventually sign somewhere, and while he's not a player you need to draft, he'll probably be worth having on your bench at some point during the season.

The Quick Opinion: Mark Reynolds will happily provide you with league-average offensive production and not much else. Never truly a starter or a bench player, Reynolds always seems to turn up somewhere, perhaps even on your bench.
