I recently posted on what to do with Mike Gonzalez, and while he is now struggling some more, a single reliever is not the same issue as a starting 3B like Mark Reynolds right now.
Reynolds is making a difficult transition to AL pitching (as is DLee), and not well.
Reynolds line as of today (5/17) is: .191 avg., .653 OPS, 5 HRs.
His Ks are down, but as Fangraphs points out in this article
, so is everything else.
His defense is also slacking. A .915 fielding percentage is pitiful, paired with a -22.8 UZR/150, the worst spot of his career so far.
Reynolds is looking bad. How long do we wait on this one? Yes, he's younger and more capable of going back to his ways than a project like Garrett Atkins, but something has to be done. He's being put down in the lineup and even benched every so often, but we will have to see how he can manage over the next weeks.
