Mark Reynolds, who took a pitch to the outside of his left hand in Thursday night's 9-7 loss to the Angels, is back in the starting lineup today batting sixth and starting at first base.

After Thursday's game, Reynolds' hand had a huge wrap on it and his thumb was visibly swollen.


However, Chris Davis, who was scratched from Thursday's lineup before the game, will also miss tonight's game with what was diagnosed as a right trapezius strain. Steve Pearce is in right field tonight batting seventh.

Also, second baseman Robert Andino, who is 5-for-11 over the past three games, will lead off tonight, moving left fielder Xavier Avery to ninth.

Here are the starting lineups:
