Dietrich went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's win over the Mets. The homer was his fourth of the year, and his first since April 28. Dietrich continues to see regular playing time in left field, posting a .286/.340/.449 slash line through 17 games in May, but his lack of run production in a weak lineup (six RBI and six runs on the month) makes him a viable fantasy option only in NL-only and very deep mixed formats.
Dietrich is out of the lineup Monday against the Mets, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. With a lefty in Jason Vargas toeing the rubber for the opposition, Dietrich will take his usual seat on the bench while Cameron Maybin picks up a start in left field, hitting sixth.
Dietrich is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Atlanta, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. Cameron Maybin will get another start in left field as Dietrich hits the bench against Braves lefty Sean Newcomb. The 28-year-old's continued struggles at the plate have seen him enter a left-field platoon with Maybin in recent matchups.
Dietrich is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. Dietrich sits for the second game in a row as the Marlins face their second straight lefty in Alex Wood. Dietrich wasn't being removed from the lineup against lefties early in the season, but he's now sat against the last five the Marlins have faced, with Cameron Maybin starting in left field each time.
Dietrich is not in the lineup Sunday against the Braves, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Dietrich will get the afternoon off with lefty Sean Newcomb toeing the rubber for the Braves. Cameron Maybin will pick up the start in left field and bat leadoff in his stead.
