Hosmer will be on the bench against lefty Braxton Garrett and the Marlins on Saturday.
Hosmer has begun to see his playing time reduced, as he's now been on the bench against each of the last three lefties the Padres have faced. It's hard to say he deserves to start every day, as his .266/.329/.381 slash line simply isn't good enough for a first baseman. Jurickson Profar, who's hitting just .236/.338/.315 himself, will start at that position Saturday.

His resurgence in 2020 was driven in large part by his career-low 46.2 percent groundball rate, but he's gone back to pounding the ball into the ground this season, posting a 57.4 percent mark in that category. Jake Cronenworth will slide to first base in his absence, with Ha-Seong Kim starting at second.
