Hechavarria is out of the lineup Saturday against the Phillies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. Miguel Rojas will start at shortstop as Hechavarria sits for the second time in three games. His glove continues to be Hechavarria's saving grace, as he's batting just .238/.285/.313 this season, down from .281/.315/374 in 2015. He's just 6-for-41 so far in September.
Hechavarria remains out of the lineup Monday against the Cubs, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. The Marlins haven't revealed that Hechavarria is dealing with any sort of injury, so he'll curiously be held out of the lineup for a second day in a row as the team gives Miguel Rojas another look at shortstop. With a .240/.288/.317 batting line across 476 plate appearances this season, Hechavarria has been one of the league's worst-performing everyday shortstops, but he's still probably a better regular option at the position than Rojas, who profiles as more of a utility bat.
Hechavarria is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Hechavarria will sit for the second time in four games, as the Marlins go with Miguel Rojas at shortstop. Rojas will bat eighth in the order against the Mets' Bartolo Colon.
Hechavarria is out of the lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Padres, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

Hechavarria is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Hechavarria has had a poor showing at the plate recently.

He'll give way to Miguel Rojas for Wednesday's contest versus Kansas City.
