Snyder is hitting .267 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored in 11 games this season and will make just his second start of the season for Atlanta. The 29-year-old will have a tough matchup with Mets' ace Noah Syndergaard who has a 2.08 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 15 games this season.
He's put together a solid month of June since taking over as the Mets' starting third baseman, hitting .308 (20-for-65) with two homers and 10 RBI. Flores is still only 24, so he may have just been scratching the surface of his potential with his 16-HR campaign in 2015.
Peralta was likely overdue for a day off, as he had started 13 straight games for St. Louis, and 15 of the last 16 overall since returning from the DL. In his stead, Jedd Gyorko will take over at the hot corner.
D'Arnaud was off to a hot start during his tenure with the Braves, but has fizzled out of late and has seems to have lost his starting job to Adonis Garcia, who will start for the third straight game. Furthermore, Jace Peterson seems to have settled in as the Braves' everyday option at second baseman and as their leadoff hitter, closing off another avenue to playing time for d'Arnaud.
La Stella hasn't seen live game action in nearly three weeks, so it's a step in the right direction for the 27-year-old. Although he saw sporadic starts earlier this year, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Cubs purposefully extend this rehab assignment due to the current amount of infield depth.
Baez has made it into the starting lineup for four straight games (at three separate positions), but he'll take a seat for Sunday's afternoon matchup with Jose Fernandez and the Marlins. The young infielder was 0-for-4 with a strikeout Saturday to snap a two-game hitting streak, and is batting .268 in the month of June.
With the Reds starting left-handed pitchers in each of the first three games of the series, Schimpf was confined to the bench in favor of Adam Rosales. The duo continues to work in a platoon at second base, but since most of the league's starters are right-handed, Schmipf figures to see the bulk of the starts due to his left-handedness. He'll slot in at sixth in the Padres' lineup Sunday.
Rosales had logged the last three starts at second base, as the Reds had brought three lefties to the mound in a row. For the time being, it appears manager Andy Green is content to roll out a platoon of Rosales and Ryan Schimpf at the keystone until Cory Spangenberg (quad) returns from the DL, likely around the All-Star break. As the right-handed hitter of the two, Rosales generally should be expected to see fewer at-bats than Schimpf.
The veteran third baseman had been in the midst of a rare slump entering Saturday, having gone 2-for-21 over the previous six games. Prado bounced back with his eighth multi-hit game of June, and first such effort since June 14. Despite the recent struggles, his season line sits at a stellar .314/.362/.404.
Switch-hitter Ramiro Pena will step in at hot corner against right-hander Jeremy Hellickson, pushing Gillaspie to the bench following back-to-back starts. Gillaspie and Pena appear in line to continue splitting third base duties with Matt Duffy (Achilles) out through the All-Star break, but it does not look like it will be a strict platoon.
