1B/3B Mark Reynolds, Cleveland Indians: If you're in a deep league, you probably want to hold on to Reynolds. Bench him for now, because he's in a terrible run at the plate, but he can get hot and carry you for a week or two. However, those of you in shallow leagues should get this rate-killer off your team. He hit .187/.288/.253 in June, and has yet to get a hit in 16 at-bats in July. You can find plenty of guys who will come just short of matching his power, but will actually get on base at a rate greater than 29 percent. There's no need for you to have Reynolds.
