Piscotty is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Rockies, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Piscotty returned from an ankle issue to start Saturday's game but will retreat back to the bench Sunday. Seth Brown will start in right field in the series finale.
Piscotty (ankle) is starting Saturday's game against the Rockies. Piscotty was held out of Friday's lineup due to an ankle injury, but he'll play right field and bat sixth Saturday. Across his last two games, the 30-year-old has gone 3-for-8 with a double, two runs and an RBI.
Piscotty has been dealing with an ankle injury recently and isn't starting Friday against the Rockies, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports. Piscotty had started each of the last two games, but manager Bob Melvin said that the outfielder is dealing with a "slight ankle thing." Although he's reportedly feeling better Friday, Seth Brown will start in right field and bat fourth.
Piscotty went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk in a loss to the Angels on Sunday. The veteran outfielder continues to inch his season slash line upward, although it still sits at an anemic .204/.283/.361. Piscotty has shown some nice pop by lacing nine of his 22 hits on the season for extra bases, but a career-low .240 BABIP despite a career-high 24.1 percent line-drive rate speaks to the fact he's been plagued by a certain degree of misfortune when putting the ball in play.
Piscotty is starting in right field and hitting eighth Thursday against the Angels. With right hander Shohei Ohtani set to take the mound, Seth Brown was originally in the lineup. However, southpaw Patrick Sandoval will draw the start for the Angels instead, shifting Brown to the bench.
