Ketel Marte, SS, SEA
1:14 PM
News: Marte (thumb) will start his rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Tacoma, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Marte suffered a thumb sprain May 21 after he appeared to jam his hand while stealing a base against the Reds. The 22-year-old will return to game action with Tacoma on Tuesday and will stay with the minor league club through Saturday. Seattle will then activate Marte next Monday assuming there are no setbacks during his five game rehab stint.

Nick Ahmed
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Not in lineup Tuesday
Nick Ahmed, SS, ARI
11:52 AM
News: Ahmed is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Astros.

After starting the last four games, Ahmed will get the day off as the Diamondbacks go with Chris Owings at shortstop, while Michael Bourn takes over in center field. Owings will bat seventh against the Astros' Lance McCullers.

Freddy Galvis
Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Hits fifth homer against Nationals
Freddy Galvis, SS, PHI
5/30/2016
News: Galvis hit his fifth home run, a solo shot, as part of a 2-for-4 game in Monday's loss to Washington.

Galvis is still struggling, as he owns a meager .257/.284/.412 season line, but he has found some power this season. He is just two home runs away from tying his career high, but he also has a brutal 42:7 K:BB and needs to resolve that problem before he can get the rest of his game back on track.

Marcus Semien
Athletics' Marcus Semien: Doubles run home during Monday's win
Marcus Semien, SS, OAK
5/30/2016
News: Semien went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI against Minnesota Monday.

Semien ranks second in the team with 23 RBI. He's his safely in six of the last nine games, but his average over that span is a paltry .206. It's no secret he needs to produce a bit more at the plate, although at least he's doing better in May (.236) when compared to his struggles during April (.205).

Jose Iglesias
Tigers' Jose Iglesias: Gets the day off Monday
Jose Iglesias, SS, DET
5/30/2016
News: Iglesias is out of the lineup Monday against the Angels.

Iglesias has made six straight starts at shorstop, so it was time for a routine day off. Manager Brad Ausmus will turn to Andrew Romine to take over at shorstop and bat out of the nine-spot.

Analysis: 

Jordy Mercer
Pirates' Jordy Mercer: Sitting Monday
Jordy Mercer, SS, PIT
5/30/2016
News: Mercer is out of the lineup Monday against the Marlins.

Mercer will get the opportunity for a day off, as the return of Josh Harrison (illness) means the Pittsburgh infield is just about at full strength. While Mercer gets a maintenance day, Sean Rodriguez will be called upon to take over at shortstop.

Analysis: 

Brad Miller
Rays' Brad Miller: Not in Monday's lineup
Brad Miller, SS, TB
5/30/2016
News: Miller is not in the lineup Monday against the Royals, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Miller will take a seat for a routine day of rest following four straight starts at shortstop. Taylor Motter will take his place in the lineup, batting second in the order against right-hander Ian Kennedy.

Jonathan Villar
Brewers' Jonathan Villar: Swipes 18th base Sunday
Jonathan Villar, SS, MIL
5/29/2016
News: Villar went 2-for-2 with two walks, three runs scored, and RBI and his 18th stolen base of the season in Sunday's win over the Reds.

He's on another tear, banging out five multi-hit performances in his last eight games while adding a home run, seven RBI, eight runs and four steals to his ledger over that stretch. Orlando Arcia continues to play well in the minors and is the Brewers' shortstop of the future, but as long as Villar keeps raking they'll be in no hurry to make a switch.

Analysis: 

Cole Tucker
Pirates' Cole Tucker: Promoted to Bradenton
Cole Tucker, SS, PIT
5/29/2016
News: Tucker went 2-for-3 with a walk in his debut for High-A Bradenton on Sunday.

GM Neal Huntington said Sunday that the plan was to promote Tucker from Low-A West Virginia to Bradenton relatively quickly and then starting Marauders' shortstop Kevin Newman injured his orbital bone last week. The 19-year-old holds a combined slash line of .281/.333/.453 in 16 games since returning from a shoulder injury.

Analysis: 

Carlos Correa
Astros' Carlos Correa: Sluggs eight homer of season Sunday
Carlos Correa, SS, HOU
5/29/2016
News: Correa went 1-for-1 with a decisive three-run homer run as a pinch hitter during Sunday's 13-inning win over the Angels.

Correa was expected to get the day off, but manager A.J. Hinch opted to give him a pinch-hit appearance and the shortstop responded hitting a three-run homer that was decisive for Houston's win. Correa has gone 5-for-38 (.135) over the past 10 games, but perhaps the home run will boost his confidence as he tries to leave an extended sophomore slump behind him.
