The Brewers’ pitching staff is led by an otherworldly top of the rotation. They may have two more seasons before they have to move those stud arms, so now is the time to act.
This isn’t, however, a go-all-in strategy for the years 2022 and 2023. As you’ll see, bringing Reynolds in now benefits the present as well as the future.
Reynolds, like Yelich before the 2018 season, would be an excellent match for a lineup in desperate need of a well-rounded bat.
Reynolds, a 27-year-old switch-hitter with 1400 plate appearances in three seasons, has a.368 on-base percentage and a 128 OPS+.
Reynolds had a .302/.390/.522/.912 slash line with 24 home runs, 35 doubles, 93 runs, and 90 RBI for the National League’s worst offense last season.
Since 2019, how does Reynolds compare to all other MLB outfielders? Probably better than the majority of people believe, and frequently ahead of players like Kris Bryant, Nick Castellanos, and Starling Marte:
Reynolds’ high on-base percentage and switch-hitting abilities would be valuable contributions to the lineup.
Manager Craig Counsell might use him in a number of locations in the order based on the matchups for the day, making him a valuable asset.
Reynolds has some pop in his bat, which will likely grow with a shift from PNC Park to American Family Field.
PNC Park has been the third-worst park for hitting home runs over the last three seasons, while Miller Park ranks 11th, about 6% above MLB average.
