But a funny thing happened now that Reynolds has arrived at Camden Yards: He has started striking out less. It's weird to even type this, but Reynolds isn't even in the top 15 in strikeouts this year. He's actually tied for 18th, with 30 in 30 games, well beyond Detroit Tigers teammates Austin Jackson and Ryan Raburn (who have 43 and 41, respectively). Last year, Reynolds struck out in 35.4 percent of his plate appearances; this year he's striking out in 25.9 percent, a major decrease. Likewise, last year, 31 percent of his strikeouts were swinging strikes; this year, it's down to just 25 percent. That's still much higher than the league average of 15 percent, but it's a substantial drop for him.
