Gutierrez has been battling broken blood vessels in his eye, and he's logged just one at-bat over the last five contests. While Gutierrez will likely be available off the bench, it's unclear if he'll be utilized.
Tomas was scratched from Friday's lineup due to soreness in his upper back, but the issue doesn't look to be anything serious. He'll get the nod in right field Saturday, as Friday's replacement, Socrates Brito, shifts back to the bench.
With the Dodgers starting another lefty in Clayton Kershaw, Span will sit once again in favor of Goryks Hernandez. Span has struggled throughout the month of September but he still owns a decent .283/.349/.418 line against right-handers, so it seems likely he'll be back in there Sunday to face Kenta Maeda.
Schebler will be held out of the lineup for the fourth game in a row Saturday, although he was used as a pinch hitter in Thursday's game, so it's possible he remains available off the bench. The Reds will deploy Adam Duvall, Steve Selsky and Patrick Kivlehan in a gruesome outfield trio Saturday.
The Marlins will rest several regulars Saturday as they play out the string against the Nationals. Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and hit fifth Saturday. Stanton has now sat out two games in a row, and it would not come as a big surprise if he was also absent from Sunday's lineup as he is fairly banged up at this point in the season.
He left Friday's game with back tightness, as a precaution, as the Nationals want him right for the postseason. With that in mind, it would not be surprising if the veteran was held out Sunday as well. Michael Taylor will start in left field and hit second Saturday.
The Yankees will rest several regulars Saturday in a meaningless game (at least for them) against the Orioles. Aaron Hicks will get the start in center field, hitting second Saturday.
Yelich's 434-foot shot to right center in the seventh gave the Marlins some important breathing room by extending the lead to 6-4. The homer was his first since Sep. 21, when he also went deep against this same Nationals squad.
The veteran outfielder launched the first of two fifth-inning round-trippers off Michael Pineda, his 29th blast of the season. Jones has now hit 29 homers for the second time in the last three seasons and one final bomb over the last two games of the campaign will give the third 30-homer season of his career.
With 22 homers and 17 steals, Polanco appears to be making a desperate attempt to reach the 20-20 mark. The outfielder has seven hits, including two doubles and a triple, in 19 at-bats against Saturday starter Michael Wacha.
