New York Yankees 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at first base and hitting eighth in the lineup in his first game with the team Friday, Aug. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds could certainly be a very nice cheap source for power down the stretch in AL-only leagues and those that might be desperate in cavernous mixed formats. Beware: His low average and heavy K totals will weigh you down.

The New York Yankees have agreed to terms with free-agent 3B Mark Reynolds (Indians). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much playing time Reynolds will get, but he should help the team's lack of right-handed power hitters. He could be an option for AL-only owners looking for cheap power.

The Boston Red Sox are not interested in acquiring Cleveland Indians 3B Mark Reynolds, who was recently designated for assignment by the Indians.

The Cleveland Indians designated 3B Mark Reynolds for assignment Thursday, Aug. 8. Reynolds signed a one-year, $6 million deal last winter but was hitting just .215 with 15 home runs and 48 RBIs with 123 strikeouts. He had only two home runs since May.
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds has been an all-or-nothing player for much of his career, and after a hot start he faded quickly for the Tribe. He could latch on with another team, though, so don't forget about him entirely. This cements Lonnie Chisenhall's status as the club's everyday third baseman.

Cleveland Indians 3B Mark Reynolds takes over as the team's regular third baseman following the demotion of 3B Lonnie Chisenhall to Triple-A Columbus. While Reynolds had 26 errors at third base in 114 games, he will start there regularly. INF Mike Aviles and OF Ryan Raburn can also play third base.

Cleveland Indians 3B Mark Reynolds will be the primary third baseman with 3B Lonnie Chisenhall being sent to Triple-A Columbus. "Mark will get the majority of the time at third," said manager Terry Francona. "Mike Aviles can play there as well." Reynolds is leading the American League with 11 home runs, is third in slugging percentage at .598 and fifth in RBIs with 32.
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is swinging a red-hot stick, and playing regularly defensively could help him sustain his hot pace. Aviles could be mixed in every now and then, giving him a tad bit more value in AL-only leagues.

Cleveland Indians 3B Mark Reynolds started the first game of a doubleheader at third base Monday, May 13, but SS Mike Aviles can also play the hot corner after the team optioned 3B Lonnie Chisenhall to Triple-A Columbus.
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is already owned in all formats, but Aviles should now be picked up in AL-only leagues and considered in deep mixed formats as corner infield depth.
