Mark Reynolds is a lighter presence in the Baltimore Orioles' clubhouse than he was a year ago.
The power-hitting third baseman, who once struck out a major league record 223 times, fanned fewer than 200 times in his first season with the Orioles last year, but led baseball in errors.
In the past year, Reynolds has dropped 19 pounds, and after a brief move to first base, he's back at third.
Reynolds struck out fewer than 200 times for the first time in a full season in 2011. He also had a slow start in his American League debut after a trade from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Reynolds ended the year with 37 home runs, 196 strikeouts and 31 errors - 26 at third base.
