Fuentes is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against San Diego. Following Trevor Story's return from the injured list last week, Fuentes has returned to serving primarily as a reserve player for the time being. He should continue to get some starts both at third base and in the outfield against left-handers, however.
Fuentes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds. Fuentes will head to the bench for the second time in the series, and he could indirectly find himself as the odd man out for a regular role following Trevor Story's (elbow) recent return from the injured list. With Story back at shortstop, Brendan Rodgers has picked up more work of late at the keystone, which has forced Ryan McMahon over to Fuentes' regular spot at third base. Fuentes hasn't helped his case for maintaining everyday playing time by going 3-for-21 over his last seven games.
Fuentes is not in the starting lineup Friday at Cincinnati. Fuentes is 2-for-15 over his past five games and will head to the bench Friday. Ryan McMahon will shift to third base while Brendan Rodgers starts at the keystone.
Fuentes isn't starting Wednesday against the Marlins, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports. Fuentes went 2-for-10 with a walk and three strikeouts across his last three games. Ryan McMahon will start at third base while Yonathan Daza enters the lineup in center field.
Fuentes went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Rangers. Fuentes hit the game's only home run off Taylor Hearn in the eighth inning Wednesday and scored half of the Rockies' runs. The 28-year-old was hitless in his last seven games in May before tallying four hits in the first two contests in June. He is slashing .255/.293/.427 with five homers, 26 RBI and 22 runs in 167 plate appearances. The third baseman gets the start most days, but the return of Brendan Rodgers could give Fuentes more bench time.
