Heredia is not in the lineup against the Angels on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Heredia will receive a breather after going 2-for-4 with a double during Tuesday's victory. In his place, Ben Gamel will get a start in the outfield.
Heredia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Heredia has gone just 2-for-23 at the plate over his last seven starts, dropping his season average nearly 40 points during that span. With Ben Gamel heating up at the plate in his recent starts and entering the starting nine again Sunday, Heredia's hold on a full-time role could be loosening.
Heredia went 2-for-4 in Thursday's win over the Rangers. Most of Heredia's hits are singles, but his above-average contact rate and prowess at the plate continues to render him a dependable, complementary offensive piece. The 27-year-old outfielder's stellar defense also projects to continue affording him consistent starts in center field for the foreseeable future, and Thursday's production pushed his season line to an impressive .298/.417/.426 across 119 plate appearances.
Heredia is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Heredia has started 11 straight games, hitting a respectable .343/.465/.457 over those contests, so he'll head to the bench for a breather while Ben Gamel picks up a start in the outfield.
Heredia went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday. Heredia continues to produce in his everyday role, now having reached safely in five of his last six games. The 27-year-old outfielder doesn't offer much in the way of power, but his above-average contact rate makes him a solid table-setter near the top of the order.
