Mark Reynolds

Even though he hates this nickname... 

I love the Sheriff! 

Except for leagues where strikeouts count against you.  What's not to like?   

A couple (important) things need to happen before he reaches the top five tier.  He's got to hit the off-speed pitches more consistently, & he's got to start covering the outside of the plate by taking it to the opposite field.  

There's no denying this kids power.  We'll just have to see if he improves on those two things mentioned above.  Since pitchers usually dominate the hitters early at the beginning of the season with off-speed stuff.  Give him 3 months.  If he starts hitting the off-speed by early June, you got a steal.  & your top 5 third baseman.  Make sure the rest of your league knows it too!         

Another thing to note...   Reynolds started out of the gate hitting homeruns last year.  (Along with some other D-backs)  & there's a real good chance it will happen again this year.  Especially home games where it is nice n toasty.  Which makes it is so worth picking him up in the late rounds.
