News: Uribe is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, according to Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Uribe started six of the last nine games at third base, but the veteran will get a day off Wednesday with the Indians and Nationals playing an early afternoon affair. Jose Ramirez will man the hot corner for the Indians on Wednesday.

Josh Donaldson
Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Blasts 25th bomb Tuesday
Josh Donaldson, 3B, TOR
1:24 AM
News: Donaldson went 2-for-6 with a home run, a double and three RBI on Tuesday in the Blue Jays' exciting 12-inning win over the Padres.

Donaldson set the tone Tuesday with a two-run shot in the top of the first inning with no outs off San Diego starter Andrew Cashner. The Blue Jays later trailed the Padres 6-4 in the 12th inning, when Donaldson helped finish the night with a RBI fielder's choice that setup teammate Devon Travis to score the winning run and complete the comeback on a walk-off wild pitch later that inning. The reigning AL MVP is set to contend for the title once again, now with a 1.002 OPS that ranks second in the AL only to veteran DH David Ortiz.

Kyle Seager
Mariners' Kyle Seager: Smashes 20th homer Tuesday
Kyle Seager, 3B, SEA
12:44 AM
News: Seager went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs in a win over the Pirates.

The home run was Seager's 20th of the season, and the pair of RBI brought his season haul to 67. He's been having a marvelous season at age 28, and his .288/.364/.535 batting line would be a career best in each category. Seager has remarkably been even better of late, hitting .368/.415/.684 in July.

Luis Valbuena
Astros' Luis Valbuena: Ruled out Wednesday with hamstring injury
Luis Valbuena, 3B, HOU
7/26/2016
News: Valbuena (hamstring strain) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Yankees, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports.

He left Tuesday's game in the second inning with a hamstring strain, and considering the Astros have an off day Thursday, he will get at least two days off prior to the weekend series in Detroit. Alex Bregman figures to get the starts at third base while Valbuena is out.

Astros' Alex Bregman: Fans twice in MLB debut
Alex Bregman, 3B, HOU
7/26/2016
News: Bregman went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in his MLB debut Monday against the Yankees.

Yankees starter Michael Pineda, along with relievers Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller, combined to strike out 12 Astros in their 2-1 win. Bregman, who hit sixth in the lineup Monday, may soon move up to second in the batting order to bridge the gap between George Springer and Jose Altuve. That could happen as early as Tuesday when the Astros face southpaw C.C. Sabathia.

Adrian Beltre
Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Hits two homers in win over Rangers
Adrian Beltre, 3B, TEX
7/26/2016
News: Beltre hammered a pair of home runs, including a walk-off two-run shot, in a 4-for-5 game with three runs scored and three RBI in Monday's win over Texas.

Beltre is on fire of late, with four multi-hit games in his past five. His power has been particularly impressive -- he now has two doubles, a triple and three home runs in those five games, good for an even 1.000 slugging percentage in 23 at-bats. Beltre now has 16 home runs on the season, ranking him 13th among qualified third basemen.

Danny Valencia
Athletics' Danny Valencia: Homers in loss to Rangers
Danny Valencia, 3B, OAK
7/26/2016
News: Valencia homered, scored twice and knocked in three runs as part of a 2-for-4 game in a loss Monday against Texas.

This marks Valencia's 13th home run of the season but just his second in July. Valencia owned a brutal .210/.269/.274 batting line with a 5:22 BB:K, so he desperately needed a big night. Despite his recent struggles, he still owns a sharp .302/.353/.486 line for the season.

Todd Frazier
White Sox's Todd Frazier: Slams 29th homer against Cubs
Todd Frazier, 3B, CHW
7/26/2016
News: Frazier hit a three-run home run, his 29th, in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's win over the Cubs.

Frazier busted out of a 1-for-14 slump over his last four games with the blast. Still, he also struck out twice, and his batting average is stuck at a putrid .211 and his OBP is down to .297. At this point, what you see from Frazier is what you get -- his power is huge, but he has shown no sign that he can hit for average all year long.

Analysis: 

Jose Ramirez
Indians' Jose Ramirez: Simmers off after hot start
Jose Ramirez, 3B, CLE
7/25/2016
News: Ramirez's batting average has dropped from .310 on May 31 to his current .284 mark, and his OPS has gone from .832 to .742 in that same span.

Ramirez's batting average is still .025 above the team average, however. Even with the slight decline, Ramirez will continue to man left field as long as Michael Brantley (shoulder) remains sidelined.

Nick Castellanos, 3B, DET
7/24/2016
News: Castellanos went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday at the White Sox.

Castellanos' 18th bomb of 2016 brought the Tigers within two runs in the ninth inning of a losing effort. This was his first extra-base hit in his last seven contests, and he's now slashing .297/.336/.525 on the year.
