DENVER — Colorado Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds was struck in the hand by a pitch in the bottom of the fifth inning in Sunday afternoon’s contest against the San Diego Padres and has been diagnosed with a broken hand. He will miss the rest of the 2016 season.

This is especially tough news for Reynolds after coming back early from hamate bone surgery also after being hit in the hand by a pitch. Reynolds told BSN Denver after he returned that he was still experiencing pain and might not have returned if circumstances were different but he was able to step back in and play excellent defense in addition to hitting a few more key home runs.

The 33-year-old Reynolds finishes the season with a very solid slashline of .281/.354/.442 with 14 home runs in addition to playing outstanding first base defense. Reynolds is in the final year of his contract and with the lack of options for right-handers at the spot, it seems likely the Rockies will be among many teams to send him an offer.
