Good morning baseball fans!
Colorado might be without Mark Reynolds for the remainder of the season:
Reynolds has been a reasonable source of power for the Rockies this season as they continue another tepid divisional campaign out west, hitting .307 through April and May, and the line between his most and least effective splits drawn quite clearly: Reynolds hit .298 vs. RHP this season, as opposed to .248 vs. lefties, and clearly benefited from hitting at Coors Field, where he slashed .312/.382/.492 (Outside of Denver, he managed a far less impressive .250/.323/.395).
Steven Matz had his spot in the rotation skipped because of a shoulder injury.
