News: Beckham (hamstring) will begin his rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Gwinnett.

Beckham appears to be getting back to full speed on schedule. As long as he doesn't experience any setbacks in the coming days, he could be very close to returning from the disabled list.

Jean Segura
Diamondbacks' Jean Segura: Dealing with hip issue
Jean Segura, 2B, ARI
5/3/2016
News: Segura is not in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup due to a hip issue, Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports reports.

This makes it a bit clearer as to why Arizona decided to keep the young middle infielder on the bench Sunday and now Tuesday. That being said, the issue isn't considered serious, and Segura could return to the lineup as soon as Wednesday. Phil Gosselin will likely see an uptick in playing time while Segura treats this ailment.

Kelly Johnson
Braves' Kelly Johnson: In the lineup Tuesday against the Mets
Kelly Johnson, 2B, ATL
5/3/2016
News: Johnson will start at second base and bat fourth for Tuesday's matchup with the Mets.

Johnson will take Daniel Castro's place at second base Tuesday and face Mets' starting pitcher Matt Harvey. Johnson has had five career at-bats against the right-hander, for two hits and three strikeouts.

Kelby Tomlinson
Giants' Kelby Tomlinson: Is in Tuesday's lineup
Kelby Tomlinson, 2B, SF
5/3/2016
News: Tomlinson is in the lineup and batting seventh for Tuesday's game against the Reds.

Tomlinson will receive another start while Joe Panik continues to work his way back from a groin injury. He has been solid since stepping in for Panik, hitting .250 with two runs scored and two stolen bases in three starts.

Analysis: 

Joe Panik
Giants' Joe Panik: Not in lineup Tuesday
Joe Panik, 2B, SF
5/3/2016
News: Panik (groin) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds.

Panik has been day-to-day since April 29, but hopes to get back in the lineup toward the end of the week. He could be available to pinch hit in these games, but it is unlikely he is at full strength for a couple more days.

Analysis: 

Miguel Rojas
Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Is in Tuesday's lineup
Miguel Rojas, 2B, MIA
5/3/2016
News: Rojas is in the lineup and batting eighth for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Rojas will get the start against southpaw Patrick Corbin while Derek Dietrich takes the night off. The 27-year-old has only seen 25 plate appearances this season, but he will likely see an increased role following the suspension of Dee Gordon for 80 games.

Analysis: 

Josh Harrison
Pirates' Josh Harrison: Out of lineup Tuesday
Josh Harrison, 2B, PIT
5/3/2016
News: Harrison is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

After starting the last four games and seeing a bump up to third in the order, it looks to be just a normal day off for Harrison with the Pirates set to face Jake Arrieta. Sean Rodriguez will man the keystone in his stead Tuesday.

Analysis: 

Daniel Murphy
Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Three more hits in Monday's win
Daniel Murphy, 2B, WAS
5/3/2016
News: Murphy went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Monday's 2-0 win over the Royals.

He's now working on a four-game RBI streak to go along with his outstanding .382/.439/.596 slash line on the season. Murphy's counting stats (two home runs, 13 RBI, 12 runs scored) are a little more modest, but he's still providing incredible fantasy value for a second baseman.

Analysis: 

Kolten Wong
Cardinals' Kolten Wong: Homers in win over Phillies
Kolten Wong, 2B, STL
5/3/2016
News: Wong hit a two-run home run, his first, in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Wong had yet to even hit a single extra-base hit this year. He struggled to hit for power in the second half last season, and dating back to the All-Star break he had just two home runs and a .308 slugging percentage in his previous 295 at-bats. Wong's 2016 line is still a brutal .233/.304/.283, so he desperately needs this home run to spark a hot streak.

Analysis: 

Ben Zobrist
Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Drives home two in win
Ben Zobrist, 2B, CHC
5/2/2016
News: Zobrist went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Monday's victory against the Pirates.

Zobrist's two RBI bring his total up to 12 for the season to go along with 14 runs scored. The veteran is now hitting .253 in his first season in Chicago, and should continue to have run scoring and RBI opportunities for as long as he is hitting in the middle of the Cubs' potent lineup.
