Iannetta went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in the Diamondbacks' 4-1 loss to the Padres on Thursday.

The veteran backstop has been sharing starts behind the plate with Jeff Mathis, but Iannetta has been performing above expectations thus far, as he's currently batting .280 with a five-game hit streak to his credit. However, it's unrealistic to expect this production to continue given a .333 BABIP that's well above his career average, especially if this pattern of sporadic playing time continues.
