AL: Mark Reynolds, Orioles
Mark Reynolds is known to put up two very high totals, in two different categories: home runs and strikeouts.
In 2011, he had 37 homers and struck out 196 times. The strikeout numbers are still there in 2012, with 69 in 187 at-bats. But, he only has seven round-trippers.
Reynolds is on pace for 14 homers, 45 RBI and 135 strikeouts, but those numbers will change depending on the amount of playing time he gets. The Orioles are surprisingly still in contention for the playoffs, so they may look for a more consistent bat to play at third base.
NL: Ryan Roberts, Diamondbacks
Ryan Roberts, or "Tat Man," was one of the biggest surprises of the 2011 season. He hit 19 home runs, swiped 18 bags and scored 89 runs in a solid season.
Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to replicate it.
Roberts is 4-for-7 in stolen base attempts, has homered only six times and has a weak .639 OPS. No player is likely to threaten his playing time, so he will have plenty of chances to improve his hitting.
