• Not in Thursday's lineup
    D'Arnaud is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

    Advice: He started the first two contest of the series, but with Thursday's finale being a day game, d'Arnaud will get a breather. Atlanta will go with Chadwick Tromp as its catcher for starting pitcher AJ Smith-Shawver. Rotowire.com 49 minutes ago
  • Raps out two hits in loss
    Sanchez went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Sanchez has seen a surge in playing time of late, though he's been aided by the Brewers facing three consecutive left-handed starting pitchers. At the very least, Sanchez seems to have carved out a short-side platoon role, with he and top backstop William Contreras starting at either catcher or designated hitter when the Brewers face a southpaw. After Wednesday's two-hit effort, Sanchez is now holding down a .764 OPS over 99 plate appearances on the season, making him one of the more productive No. 2 catchers in baseball.

  • Austin Wells on the bench on Thursday
    Austin Wells will take a seat on Thursday with Jose Trevino starting against the Mariners.

    Advice: Wells had started the last two games, so he was likely always going to sit in the day game following a night game. However, he is also hitting just .200 in May with three extra-base hits in 10 games. He’s not striking out (13 percent strikeout rate), but he’s also not making the same quality of contact as he was to start the year. Trevino has been much better offensively, slashing .283/.330/.446 with five home runs and 17 RBI in 100 plate appearances. Maybe the Yankees will turn to the veteran more often in the coming weeks.

  • Resting Thursday
    Stephenson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: After catching in both of the past two days, Stephenson will get a breather Thursday as the Reds and Padres wrap up their series with an afternoon game. Luke Maile will replace Stephenson as the Reds' starting catcher. Rotowire.com Today, 7:32 am

    Grandal (groin) remains out of the lineup for Thursday's contest versus the Giants, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

  • Sitting out Thursday
    Raleigh is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Yankees.

    Advice: Raleigh started the first three games of the series against the Yankees and hit a home run in Wednesday's 7-3 loss, but he'll get a breather for Thursday's afternoon tilt. Seby Zavala will draw the start at catcher. Rotowire.com Today, 7:16 am
  • Sitting Thursday
    Campusano is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds.

    Advice: Campusano will rest for the Thursday afternoon game after he started behind the plate Tuesday and Wednesday while going 1-for-7 with a run scored. Kyle Higashioka will draw the start at catcher and will form a battery with right-hander Matt Waldron. Rotowire.com Today, 7:15 am
  • Getting rest Thursday
    Bailey is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates.

    Advice: Though he returned from the 7-day injured list Tuesday after recovering from a concussion, Bailey didn't rejoin the lineup until the Giants' 9-5 win Wednesday, when he started behind the dish and went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs and an RBI. Bailey should see the bulk of the starts behind the dish moving forward, but he'll cede catching duties to Curt Casali as the Giants and Pirates wrap up their series with a day game after a night game.
