Kolten Wong, 2B, STL
9/25/2016
News: Wong is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Wong has seen his starting opportunities pick up since the start of September, but after going just 4-for-30 (.133 average) over his last 11 appearances, he'll hit the bench for the second day in a row. Matt Carpenter will move over from first base to cover the keystone.

Joe Panik
Giants' Joe Panik: Sitting out Sunday against lefty
Joe Panik, 2B, SF
9/25/2016
News: Panik is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres.

Panik is hitting just .236 against left-handed pitching, so he'll sit out Sunday against San Diego's Clayton Richard. Kelby Tomlinson will head out to second base and hit second in Panik's absence.

Chase Utley, 2B, LAD

News: Utley is out of the lineup for Sunday's contest against Colorado.

Utley owns a weak .165 batting average against lefties, so he'll sit out of Sunday's game. With Utley out, Charlie Culberson will take over at second base and bat eighth.

News: Gennett is not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

Gennett has started four straight games for Milwaukee and gone 3-for-15 in that time. Jonathan Villar will move over to second base while Gennett gets Sunday afternoon off.

Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Remains out Sunday
Daniel Murphy, 2B, WAS
9/25/2016
News: Murphy (leg) is out of Sunday's lineup against the Pirates, Dan Kolko of the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network reports.

Murphy's absence from the lineup comes as no surprise, as it was announced that he'd be temporarily shut down to deal with a mild glute strain. However, now that the Nationals have clinched the NL East, it's possible that they'll be even more patient before having Murphy return to action. He'll be replaced by Wilmer Difo at second base Sunday afternoon.

Saladino will miss his third consecutive game as he continues to deal with discomfort in his back. Carlos Sanchez will once again serve as the fill-in at second base Sunday.

News: Forsythe went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Red Sox.

The veteran made things momentarily interesting against closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth with a 362-foot solo shot, his 20th round-tripper of the season. It marks the first time Forsythe has reached the milestone in his career, and comes on the heels of his previous best of 17 homers that he posted last season. The 29-year-old's season line now stands at a solid .274/..344/.464.

Dustin Pedroia
Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Smacks grand slam in Saturday win
Dustin Pedroia, 2B, BOS
9/25/2016
News: Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead grand slam in Saturday's 6-4 victory over the Rays.

The veteran second baseman was the hero Saturday, smacking a Danny Farquhar offering in the seventh a distance of 402 feet to left center and plating Brock Holt, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Sandy Leon. The homer gave the Red Sox a 6-3 lead they wouldn't relinquish and was only Pedroia's second round-tripper of September. His production Saturday also snapped the 0-for-13 stretch that Pedroia had entered the contest with, and brought his season line to a stellar .318/.377/.447.

The leadoff man did a solid job of setting the table Saturday, getting on base four times and posting his second consecutive multi-hit effort. Kinsler is closing out the season in strong fashion, now hitting .344 (21-for-61) in September with six multi-hit outings overall.
