12:08 AM
News: Seager went 1-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's 7-0 loss to the Brewers.

The Dodgers phenom had the team's sole extra-base hit on a night when Brewers starter Junior Guerra stymied hitters across the lineup. Seager managed to extend his hitting streak to 12 games, and is now hitting .337 (33-for-98) during June while raising his season average 18 points in the process.

Cardinals' Aledmys Diaz: Remains out of lineup Wednesday
Aledmys Diaz, SS, STL
6/29/2016
News: Diaz (face) is still out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Diaz left Monday's game after fouling a ball off his face in the ninth inning and subsequently missed Tuesday's game after going to the hospital Monday night for additional tests. He will be out of the lineup for the second straight day, with Greg Garcia starting his sixth game at shortstop this season. Diaz will likely miss a couple more games while his swelling goes down.

Trevor Story, SS, COL
6/29/2016
News: Story (finger) will not play in Wednesday's game against Toronto, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports reports.

Story missed Monday's game after being hit by a pitch Sunday, and after re-injuring the finger in an at-bat yesterday, he won't start Wednesday to give him two days of rest with an off day Thursday. Christhian Adames will fill in at shortstop in Story's absence.

Nick Ahmed
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Nick Ahmed, SS, ARI
6/29/2016
News: Ahmed is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies.

With Ahmed out of the lineup, Jean Segura will move to shortstop and Phil Gosselin will cover second base. Ahmed, who's 7-for-16 over the last seven days, will likely return to the lineup Friday when Arizona faces Johnny Cueto and the Giants.

Analysis: 

Zack Cozart
Reds' Zack Cozart: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Zack Cozart, SS, CIN
6/29/2016
News: Cozart is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Since the Reds have been working to get Jose Peraza frequent appearances in the lineup, he'll take Cozart's spot at shortstop for Wednesday's outing. While Cozart will likely remain Cincinnati's primary option at shortstop, he may get more days off as Peraza acclimates to The Show.

Brandon Crawford
Giants' Brandon Crawford: Drives in five against Athletics
Brandon Crawford, SS, SF
6/29/2016
News: Crawford knocked in five runs as part of a 3-for-5 game in Tuesday's loss to Oakland.

Crawford is a red-hot 5-for-10 with seven RBI over his past two games. He is still without a home run this month, but he has an amazing 20 RBI in 24 games (22 starts). Crawford has just six home runs this year and looks like he won't be able to match his career high of 21, set last year, unless he hits an extended hot streak soon.

Phillies' Cornelius Randolph: Expected see action Wednesday
Cornelius Randolph, SS, PHI

Addison Russell
Cubs' Addison Russell: Out of lineup Tuesday
Addison Russell, SS, CHC
6/28/2016
News: Russell is out of the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Cincinnati, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Russell has seen playing time in the Cubs' last 17 games so he'll get the night off Javier Baez gets his 10th start at shortstop this year. Russell has gone hitless in his last two games but still sports a .308 average over his last 26 at-bats due to eight hits he picked up in the five games prior.

Analysis: 

Danny Espinosa
Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Delivers three hits against Mets
Danny Espinosa, SS, WAS
6/28/2016
News: Espinosa went 3-for-5 with a double, a run, two RBI and a steal Monday against the Mets.

Espinosa looked refreshed following Sunday's day off, picking up his sixth multi-hit performance in the last three weeks. The shortstop has earned his every-day lineup spot with a surprisingly productive bat, as he's already just three short of last season's total of 37 RBI to go along with an identical 13 homers in 43 less games played.
