Brewers | Mark Reynolds in lead for 1B job

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mark Reynolds has a leg up in the first base competition this spring partly because of his experience in the big leagues. He's hitting only .161 with a double and five RBIs this spring, but Reynolds isn't concerned that he's not driving the ball out of the park just yet. 1Bs Lyle Overbay and Juan Francisco are the other two candidates for first base. Both Reynolds and Overbay have out clauses in their contracts if they aren't signed to the roster by March 24 and March 22, respectively, and Francisco is out of minor league options.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is a decent target on the cheap in NL-only leagues if you're looking for some power late in your draft. You'll have to put up with terrible contact rates and a low BA, though.
