I think it is fair to say that Mark Reynolds is on a bit of a tear. In Saturday's second inning, Reynolds hit a 91-mph fastball from CC Sabathia for his 21st home run of the season. It also was his ninth in nine games and seventh in September. How locked in is Reynolds right now? Consider he had seven homers in the first half of the season. And seven since Sept. 2. Reynolds has hit seven homers this season against the Yankees, that ties for most in Orioles history (Ramon Hernandez in 2006)

MILWAUKEE -- The great thing about baseball is how we can take one moment in a 3-hour, 44-minute game and blow it up. Such is the case from the Orioles' 7-6 loss Tuesday night to the Milwaukee Brewers after manager Buck Showalter decided to intentionally walk Mark Reynolds with nobody on base and two outs in a 6-6 game. We'll get to that in just a second, but I quickly want to look at another move by Showalter that is being second-guessed -- taking hot-hitting Nelson Cruz out of the game (and left field)

Before the masses start thinking that there's a rift between Orioles third baseman Mark Reynolds and manager Buck Showalter, let's squash that -- and tell you about what you don't see on television. What you did see Friday night in the Orioles' 13-inning 6-4 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park was Reynolds hit his first homer of the season, a booming shot over the Green Monster in the third inning that ended a personal 0-for-13 streak and a 76-at bat homerless drought going back to last season (Watch the video by clicking HERE )

MILWAUKEE -- The Orioles and the Milwaukee Brewers may not play against each other often, but they sure do make it entertaining. After the Orioles pulled off a dramatic, extra-inning victory Monday afternoon, the two were back at it Tuesday night. This time, the Brewers won, 7-6, in 10 innings on a pinch-hit, RBI double by the next day's starting pitcher. His game-winning hit followed an intentional walk to former Orioles infielder Mark Reynolds with no one on base and two outs.

It looks like Mark Reynolds is going to be the talk of November, unless you count those guys running for president, so I'm going to do a little early voting here and give you my opinion on what the Orioles should do now that they have declined to exercise an $11 million option to bring him back for the 2013 season. This issue hasn't been prominent on my radar screen, what with all the angst surrounding the Ravens, but when my buddy Eduardo Encina put out a call for your opinions on the subject on Orioles Insider, I just had to chime in. Of course, you already know that Reynolds isn't a free agent -- at least not yet. He doesn't have enough service time to qualify, so the Orioles can tender him a one-year contract and let the whole issue be settled in salary arbitration.

If you would have asked me in May if there were any chance of Mark Reynolds returning to the Orioles in 2013, it would have been a short conversation. “Nope,” would have been the answer. Honestly, as late as July, there was a sense that the Orioles were kicking around the idea of releasing Reynolds and eating his remaining 2012 salary. Isn't it crazy how things work out? It's now October. And Reynolds, a butcher at third base, worked his way into becoming a pretty darn good first baseman.

Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds recorded his second two-homer game of the series in today's series finale at Yankee Stadium, driving in four of the Orioles' five runs so far as the O's have taken a 5-3 lead here in the Bronx. Reynolds' first homer, a solo shot in the fifth inning, was a mammoth shot to left field off Phil Hughes that landed about 15 rows up into the Yankee Stadium outfield bleachers. His second one -- another bomb into the left-field bleachers -- was a three-run shot off Hughes that gave the Orioles a 5-3 lead in the team's four-run sixth inning.

His Orioles teammates have said that he's the kind of player who can carry a team with one of his power binges, and first baseman Mark Reynolds is starting to heat up. Reynolds took the first pitch of the bottom of the second inning to straight away center field for a solo home run, his fourth homer in his last six games, giving the Orioles an early 3-1 lead against Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz.   For Reynolds, who has averaged 37 homers the last three years, it was his 12th of the season -- well below what he's used to hitting -- but it looks like the streaky hitter is finally finding his stroke.

After riding the pine pony Wednesday, struggling third baseman Mark Reynolds returned to the Orioles' starting lineup Thursday and went 0-for-2 with a walk. Reynolds is hitless in his past five games and his batting average is well below the Mendoza line -- and shy of the Izturis line, too. Reynolds is hitting .174 this season with three home runs and 15 RBI. His slugging percentage is way down. But he is tied for the team lead with 17 walks and his 37 strikeouts -- also the highest total on the team -- through 35 games is nowhere near his record-setting career average.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Mark Reynolds compared the past few days of spring training workouts to Groundhog Day. Friday's first intrasquad game gave Orioles like Reynolds the opportunity to finally similate a gameday competition. "It was good to go play and put on your uniform, (to) face live pitching and be put in a game situation,” Reynolds said. “It feels like baseball is finally back.” In Friday's intrasquad, Reynolds, who made 26 errors in 114 games at third base last season, made a pair of nice plays at third base.

MILWAUKEE -- Catcher Nick Hundley isn't some nervous rookie with nubs for fingernails and a stomach that does somersaults when there's a pressure situation before him. Hundley, 30, has been in the major leagues for parts of seven seasons, though he had only played for the San Diego Padres until Monday, when he started behind the plate for the Orioles in their thrilling 7-6 comeback victory in 10 innings over the Milwaukee Brewers. With a wry smile after the game, Hundley admitted that in the first inning he had a flash of that rookie angst when he crouched and began receiving pitches from Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman.

In his two years with the Orioles, infielder Mark Reynolds was a clubhouse favorite for his self-deprecating humor and his key role in the 2012 playoff run with his powerful bat and solid defense at first base. Now with the Brewers, Reynolds said Monday that he was looking forward to seeing his old teammates - although he said he invited shortstop J.J. Hardy to dinner Monday and was rejected. “It's always good to see them and see all the coaches. I have a lot of friends, a lot of close friends [there]

Et cetera Brewers sign former Oriole Mark Reynolds The Milwaukee Brewers signed veteran free-agent first baseman-third baseman Mark Reynolds to a minor league deal Friday. Reynolds, a former Oriole, will get a $2 million salary with an additional $500,000 available in performance bonuses if he makes the Brewers' roster. "I talked with Mark, and he's not afraid to have to beat out somebody for a job," general manager Doug Melvin told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Former Oriole Mark Reynolds is coming back to the AL East. The corner infielder agreed to a deal with the New York Yankees on Thursday, according to an industry source, three days after he was released by the Cleveland Indians . Reynolds was batting just .215 with 15 homers and 48 RBIs in 99 games for the Indians. He signed a one-year, $6 million deal with Cleveland in the offseason after spending two years in Baltimore. Buck Showalter said that he would talk with Dan Duquette about Reynolds when he was released, but the Orioles manager has repeatedly said that he likes his current team and Duquette said he likes Danny Valencia as a right-handed designated hitter.

PHOENIX - Orioles manager Buck Showalter often shuns the spotlight, so when the Arizona Diamondbacks showed a video tribute to Showalter - who was their first manager and played a large role in the expansion club's growth - he hesitated before tipping his cap as fans applauded. Monday was Showalter's first game back in Arizona since his departure from the Diamondbacks after the 2000 season. Showalter was hired in two years before Arizona began play and managed the Diamondbacks for three seasons.

Mark Reynolds hit another home run -- a solo shot, of course -- in Monday night's 3-2 loss to the Yankees. It was his 31st home run of the year, a single-season total that puts him in the top 25 in team history. Six more and he'll break into the top 10. Eight more and he will be in the top five. We figured the home runs would come when the Orioles acquired Reynolds from the Diamondbacks this winter (he averaged nearly 35 long balls in his past three seasons). We wondered if 200-plus strikeouts would come with him, too, or another season with a batting average below the Mendoza line.

The Orioles are opening their three-city, nine-game, 11-day road trip in Toronto tonight, beginning their three-game series against the Blue Jays here at the Rogers Centre. Earlier today, the Orioles activated infielder Mark Reynolds from the disabled list and sent right-handed reliever Stu Pomeranz to the DL with a left oblique strain. Reynolds flew to Toronto today and arrived around 1 p.m. Today was scheduled to be his final day of a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie, but “it's a lot better playing here,” Reynolds said.

The Orioles spent the off day Thursday in San Francisco and get back to work tonight against the Giants at AT&T Park for their first trip there since 2010, when they lost two of three games and were outscored, 17-9, in the series. The Orioles are 6-4 in games following an off day. You'd think that mark would be a little better. The Orioles should send former Orioles left-hander Bruce Chen a fruit basket this morning. Thanks to Chen, who threw 7 2/3 shutout innings in the Royals' 5-1 win over Boston, the Orioles picked up a half game on the Red Sox on the off day. So the Orioles are 5 1/2 games back of American League East division-leading Boston, the exact same distance as they were this time last season heading into the 115thgame of the season.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman didn't have his best control early Tuesday night. He was erratic, loading the bases in the first inning and walking four Cleveland Indians in the first three innings. After the third inning, though, Tillman settled down - despite a fifth-inning hiccup - and turned in yet another solid outing in the Orioles' 6-3 comeback win over the Indians. Tillman allowed three runs on four hits and four walks in seven innings while striking out six to bump his record to 9-2. “He battled through the first two innings and just didn't quite have the location he's used to having, and once he hit the third, he picked it up a little bit and was able to get us seven really good innings,” catcher Matt Wieters said.
