Chase Headley
Yankees' Chase Headley: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Chase Headley, 3B, NYY

News: Headley is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

His playing time has started to slip lately, as this will mark Headley's fifth day off in the last 10 games. The third baseman's production has not necessarily tailed off, but the Yankees have been making a point of getting Ronald Torreyes' hot bat in the lineup. Torreyes will get the nod again Wednesday, hitting ninth against righty Hisashi Iwakuma.

Kyle Seager
Mariners' Kyle Seager: Out with sore foot Wednesday
Kyle Seager, 3B, SEA
12:01 PM
News: Seager won't be in Wednesday's lineup after he fouled a ball off his foot in Tuesday's game, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

It sounds like just a sore foot for Seager, and he will likely make way for Shawn O'Malley at third base Wednesday, as the Mariners are carrying just one backup infielder on the active roster. Consider Seager day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game against the White Sox.

Luis Valbuena
Astros' Luis Valbuena: Will undergo season-ending surgery
Luis Valbuena, 3B, HOU
8/23/2016
News: Manager A.J. Hinch announced Tuesday that Valbuena (hamstring) will undergo season-ending surgery, Julia Morales of ROOT Sports reports.

2016 was arguably the best season of Valbuena's career, as he posted an .816 OPS over 90 games, but his campaign will come to an end with over a month remaining in the regular season. While he will head into the offseason recovering from surgery, his strong showing with the bat should help his cause as he enters free agency for the first time. A return to Houston seems like a long shot with Alex Bregman and Yulieski Gurriel both on hand to play third base in 2017.

Analysis: 

Danny Valencia
Athletics' Danny Valencia: Returns to lineup
Danny Valencia, 3B, OAK
8/23/2016
News: Valencia is in the lineup Tuesday against the Indians.

As expected, Valencia is back in Oakland's lineup after sitting out their last two games. He'll start in right field and bat third for the A's matchup against Danny Salazar and the Indians.

Analysis: 

Aaron Hill
Red Sox's Aaron Hill: Out of Tuesday's lineup
Aaron Hill, 3B, BOS
8/23/2016
News: Hill is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Hill has been seeing occasional time at third base, but will sit out Tuesday as Travis Shaw gets the nod to start at the hot corner. Hill's performance at the plate has left much to be desired lately, as he's gone just 5-for-28 (.179) over the last 14 games.

Analysis: 

Ryan Flaherty
Orioles' Ryan Flaherty: Showing little offensively
Ryan Flaherty, 3B, BAL
8/22/2016
News: Flaherty is batting 5-for-30 (.167) with 11 strikeouts and three walks since July 1.

The Orioles' utility man has had a rough year at the plate with just one month batting above the Mendoza Line. Additionally, he has only one game with multiple at-bats since July 24, playing sparsely in a defensive replacement capacity.

Analysis: 

Alex Bregman
Astros' Alex Bregman: Stays hot with second straight three-hit effort Saturday
Alex Bregman, 3B, HOU
8/21/2016
News: Bregman went 3-for-6 with an RBI double, two-run homer and three runs in Saturday's 12-2 rout of the Orioles.

The rookie's bat remains red-hot, with an 11-for-24 tally over his last five games. Bregman drove in George Springer with both of his run-scoring hits Saturday, a solo shot in the first that opened the scoring and an RBI two-bagger in the ninth that capped it off. The 22-year-old has now hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games and currently boasts a five-game hitting streak.

Analysis: 

Evan Longoria
Rays' Evan Longoria: Launches 28th homer in Saturday win
Evan Longoria, 3B, TB
8/21/2016
News: Longoria went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, solo homer, walk and two runs overall in Saturday's 8-2 victory over the Rangers.

He got the scoring on the day started by plating Corey Dickerson in the first with a single, and then blasted his second homer in the last four games in the sixth. Factoring in Saturday's production, Longoria is now just five homers away from equaling the career-best 33 he tallied back in a spectacular 2009 season.

Analysis: 

Adrian Beltre
Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Raps out two more hits in Saturday loss
Adrian Beltre, 3B, TEX
8/21/2016
News: Beltre went 2-for-4 with a double in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Rays.

The veteran slugger is 6-for-9 against Rays pitching over the first two games of the series and now has multi-hit efforts in six of his last nine contests. Beltre is enjoying one of his best months of the season overall, slashing .366/.423/.648 with five homers and 14 RBI in 71 August at-bats.

Analysis: 

Andrew Romine
Tigers' Andrew Romine: Not in Sunday's lineup
Andrew Romine, 3B, DET
8/21/2016
News: Romine is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.

Romine will take a seat to make room for Cameron Maybin (thumb), who was activated by the Tigers on Sunday. Despite making four straight starts in center field, the switch-hitting utility man looks to be headed back to a reserve role. He hasn't done himself any favors with his bat, as Romine owns a .458 OPS since Aug. 1.
