Gurriel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
After being struck on the face by a grounder during pregame warmups Thursday, Gurriel missed a pair of games before returning to the lineup for Saturday's 7-0 loss. He went 1-for-3 with a walk in the contest but will return to the bench for the series finale, paving the way for Garrett Cooper to step back in at first base. Even before he was hit in the face, Gurriel had sat out the Marlins' prior two games, so he appears to have moved back into a reserve role after he had been a regular in the lineup for much of June....

Marlins' Yuli Gurriel: Pilfers fourth bag
Gurriel went 2-for-5 with his fourth stolen base of the season in Sunday's win over the Nationals.
The 39-year-old has alternated starts at first base with Garrett Cooper over the last week, although the latter also rotates in at DH when he isn't playing defense. Gurriel isn't exactly earning the extra opportunities, however, slashing just .222/.239/.333 through 12 games in June with zero homers and only two RBI. His value to the Marlins primarily comes from helping to keep Cooper rested and healthy, but that doesn't translate into fantasy utility.... See More ... See Less

Gurriel is now 3-for-3 on stolen base attempts this season after swiping eight bags with Houston last year.

The veteran infielder has gotten the majority of the starts at first base recently, with Garrett Cooper serving as DH, though Jesus Sanchez's return from the IL could cut into Gurriel's playing time....

Gurriel has seen limited playing time since Garrett Cooper returned from an inner ear infection May 14. Over three games since that date, Gurriel has gone 4-for-10 with one RBI. It appears he'll remain in a reserve role as long as the Marlins' infield is healthy. For the season, the 38-year-old is slashing .263/.306/.384 with three home runs, nine RBI, eight runs scored and a stolen base through 108 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
