Guillorme isn't in the lineup Wednesday against Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Guillorme has hit .355 with a home run, two doubles, five runs and three RBI in 12 games since the All-Star break, and he'll get a breather Wednesday. Jonathan Villar will start at shortstop and bat seventh.
Guillorme went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Reds. The infielder capped the scoring on the day by taking Tony Santillan deep in the fifth inning, Guillorme's first homer in 48 games this season and only the second of his big-league career. The 26-year-old has been the primary replacement for Francisco Lindor (oblique) at shortstop for the Mets, and he'll gain even more job security if the issue that forced Jeff McNeil (undisclosed) from Wednesday's game proves to be serious.
Guillorme isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Guillorme has gone 4-for-13 with a run and two strikeouts across the last four games, and he'll get a breather while Jose Peraza starts at third base and bats ninth. The 26-year-old could see a decrease in playing time in the near future once Jonathan Villar (calf) is reinstated from the injured list.
Guillorme is not in the lineup Friday against the Yankees. Guillorme started the past 10 games at third base but will take a seat after going 7-for-30 (.233 averaged) during that stretch. The 26-year-old may see a downturn in playing time in the near future with Jonathan Villar (calf) potentially returning from the injured list this weekend.
Guillorme will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday in Atlanta. Jonathan Villar hasn't played since June 21 with a calf strain that ultimately resulted in him landing on the injured list, paving the way for Guillorme to take over as the Mets' primary option at the hot corner. Guillorme will draw his ninth straight start at the position after going 6-for-23 with a 5:2 BB:K across his previous eight contests. With Villar and J.D. Davis (hand) both set to begin minor-league rehab assignments at Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Guillorme's time as an everyday player should soon come to an end.
