Verdugo is not in the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.
Verdugo is not in the lineup for the second time in the team's past five games.

Matt Beaty will enter the lineup in his place, starting in left field and batting sixth.
Verdugo went 1-for-4 with a walk and solo home run Thursday against the Phillies.
Verdugo took Hector Neris deep in the ninth inning to record his 12th home run of the season. It was his third long ball since the All-Star break, raising his slugging percentage to .505 across 330 plate appearances for the season. Even with the return of A.J. Pollock, Verdugo should continue to get regular at-bats due to the absence of Chris Taylor (forearm) and Joc Pederson's shift to first base.

Fortunately, the throw home was not in time as Cody Bellinger scored the go-ahead run.

Pollock (elbow) on the injured list, Verdugo should continue to see a regular role in the Dodgers' lineup, and the way he's performing, manager Dave Roberts almost certainly will have to find a way to keep giving him regular at-bats even when Pollock returns.
