"I didn't leave it up for any sort of interpretation," Hinch said. "I made my mind up before I got to the ballpark that he wasn't going to play. I don't know if he'll play [Wednesday]."
Reynolds was removed from Monday's game in the ninth inning when he was clearly limping while running to first on a single.
"I feel fine," Reynolds said Tuesday.
The D-backs third baseman was bothered by a similar problem earlier this season when he injured the quad running into a railing while chasing a foul ball. Reynolds took a day off April 21 and had a team off-day April 22, as well, which seemed to help the injury heal. It occurred again about 10 days ago after he took a swing.
"This has been a constant battle," Hinch said. "I think he feels OK, but it's hard to watch him drag his leg around the bases, and I don't want anything massive to happen and lose him for a significant period of time. He does pride himself on being able to post every day, but eventually after a couple of months of on again, off again it worries me to the point where I don't feel comfortable playing him today."
If Reynolds gets Wednesday off as well, that would give him three straight days off, including Thursday's off-day for the team. The disabled list could also be a possibility.
"The only thing that is truly going to heal this is some time off," Hinch said. "Now there aren't very many breaks in the season. There's the All-Star break, which is four days, you have the potential of today, tomorrow and the off-day. I don't know. He wants to play. I want him to want to play. If we were that certain about something like that [putting him on the DL], we would have already done it earlier in the year or today."
