Fernandez is not in the lineup Wednesday against the A's. Manager Mike Scioscia is stacking right-handed hitters against lefty Brett Anderson, so Fernandez will give way to Jefry Marte at first base. Fernandez is hitting .245/.286/.396 with two homers and five RBI through 15 games in September.

Fernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a strikeout in Tuesday's win over the Rangers. Fernandez provided all of the offense for both sides, smashing his first career home run in the second inning in the 1-0 win. The 30-year-old has started five of the club's last six games and he figures to see fairly regular at-bats down the stretch with Albert Pujols (knee, elbow) out for the rest of the season. He's now slashing .293/.312/.387.
Fernandez went 1-for-3 with the first stolen base of his career in Saturday's rout of the White Sox. Fernandez returned to the starting lineup after getting a day off Friday. The 30-year-old nabbed his first major-league steal, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect much in terms of speed after he stole just two bases over 184 minor-league games. Fernandez has started five of the Halos' last seven contests (7-for-20), sitting comfortably on the strong side of a platoon at first base with Jefry Marte.
