Pittsburgh Pirates
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Reynolds, who was acquired from the Giants in the Andrew McCutchen trade, opened the season with Triple-A Indianapolis, where he hit .367 with five homers in 13 games before getting called up to the majors to replace the injured Starling Marte. The outfielder kept on hitting following his promotion, kicking off his big-league career with an 11-game hitting streak and finishing the season with a .314/.377/.503 triple-slash and 16 homers in 546 plate appearances. While Reynolds struggled down the stretch (.230 AVG in September), showed platoon splits (.756 OPS vs. LHP, .931 OPS vs. RHP) and ultimately benefitted from a .387 BABIP, the underlying numbers largely support his breakout. He isn't a flashy pick, but the switch hitter provides a nice floor thanks to his strong batting average and placement near the top of Pittsburgh's lineup -- he primarily hit second last year, which led to 83 runs.

September 20, 2020
Reynolds will start in center field and bat leadoff Sunday against the Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
Reynolds will bat atop the lineup for the third game in a row, and he could find a home there for the rest of the season after Pittsburgh recently lost two potential table-setting options to the injured list in Kevin Newman (knee) and Cole Tucker (concussion). After producing an .880 OPS in 2019, Reynolds has been one of several Pittsburgh hitters who has taken a big step back during the Pirates' 15-37 season. He'll head into the series finale versus St. Louis with a .178/.279/.331 slash line across 179 plate appearances.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Reynolds was one of the surprises of the draft. Pegged as a clear first-round talent, he fell to the Giants at pick 59, receiving an over-slot $1.35 million bonus. He lived up to his billing as a quality hitter, particularly with short-season Salem-Keizer (141 wRC+), but after getting promoted to Low-A Augusta in August, some strikeout issues began to surface. A 30.3 percent strikeout rate and 4.5 percent walk rate would not be overly alarming for a prep hitter getting his first taste of pro ball, but it was less excusable for a bat-first player from the SEC. His 124 wRC+ in a small sample at Low-A looks solid, but a .452 BABIP was largely to blame for his success there. Reynolds is destined for left field, as he lacks the tools and instincts for center field and lacks the arm for right field. This means he will have to really hit in the coming years while also improving his approach. There's a 20-homer/20-steal left fielder here if you squint hard enough, and that's enough to warrant ownership in leagues where 200 prospects are rostered.
