Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mark Reynolds was back in the lineup Friday, Sept. 19, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was hitless in three at-bats less than 24 hours after a rare mental mistake opened the door for a late rally by the St. Louis cardinals Thursday, Sept. 18. "This guy, instinctually, is unbelievable," manager Ron Roenicke said. "That's why when you see those things happen, it's surprising. And, you know, why couldn't you do it in a game that didn't matter?"

The Milwaukee Brewers are not expected to upgrade at first base before the trade deadline, as sources indicate the team is happy with the tandem of 1B Mark Reynolds and 1B Lyle Overbay.

Updating a previous report, the Milwaukee Brewers are expected to place 3B Aramis Ramirez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because of a left hamstring injury. No corresponding move has been announced, although it could depend upon the health of OF Ryan Braun (oblique) and the status of OF Carlos Gomez's suspension.
Fantasy Tip: INF Mark Reynolds and 1B Lyle Overbay will benefit the most from Ramirez's absence, which comes just as Braun appears ready to come off the disabled list. The two players had been platooning at first base but now stand to see regular playing time, with Reynolds manning the hot corner and Overbay playing first on a full-time basis. Both players should be picked up in NL-only leagues.

Milwaukee Brewers 1Bs Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds will likely platoon at first base to start the year, as the team elected to go with veterans at the position over 1B Juan Francisco. Overbay had three hits Sunday, March 23, but he was hitting just .114 this spring before the game.
Fantasy Tip: A platoon here basically wipes out any small value either player would have on his own. Reynolds is probably slightly more valuable because of his power potential, but he won't be seeing as many at-bats if it's a straight righty-lefty platoon.

The Milwaukee Brewers may be in the process of parting with 1B Juan Francisco, which would give 1B Mark Reynolds and 1B Lyle Overbay the edge at first base this season. Francisco's locker has been cleared out, a possible sign that the Brewers have designated Francisco for assignment. No official announcement has been made.

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.

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mark Reynolds appears to be the clear frontrunner to start at first base on opening day.
