O'Neill is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.
After starting each of the past eight games and batting .212 with three home runs, O'Neill will bow out of the starting nine with a healthy Marcell Ozuna (shoulder) reclaiming an everyday role in left field. O'Neill hasn't lacked in power across his multiple stops in the big leagues and has slugged 33 home runs between the majors at Triple-A Memphis this season, but his poor plate skills (41.1 K%) hurt his case for steady at-bats.
O'Neill went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs in Friday's win over the Rockies.
O'Neill collected his third double and his fifth home run of the year Friday, marking his second consecutive game with a home run. The 23-year-old is hitting .289/.325/.526 with 13 RBI and 17 runs in 76 at-bats this season. His playing time figures to take a hit once Marcell Ozuna (shoulder) returns to the lineup.
O'Neill went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run in a loss to the Nationals on Thursday.
O'Neill had been activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game, but he hadn't logged an at-bat until Thursday. The outfielder picked up where he left off prior to his injury, when he'd hit safely in all four games subsequent to a promotion from Triple-A Memphis. Now apparently back at full health following his groin injury, O'Neill will look to continue building on the stellar start to his current major-league stint.
O'Neill (groin) went 2-for-5 with two runs in his second game for Triple-A Memphis on Saturday. He'll return to St. Louis on Monday to be evaluated by the team's medical staff, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
O'Neill went 3-for-9 with a double, two RBI and three runs during his two rehab games with the Redbirds, and as was initially projected, he's expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday. The slugging outfielder will look to pick up where he left off before his injury, when he'd hit safely in his first four games after a promotion from Memphis.
O'Neill (groin) will start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Friday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
O'Neill remains on track to return after the minimum 10 days against Washington on Tuesday. He will likely partake in a few games with Memphis over the weekend after resuming hitting drills Wednesday.
