Bader is out of the lineup Wednesday for Game 5 of the Cardinals' NLDS matchup with the Braves.
Benched for the third game in a row, Bader appears to have lost his spot in the Cardinals' regular lineup to Matt Carpenter. Given that Bader is batting just .190 with a 37.5 percent strikeout rate since the beginning of September, his move into a reserve role doesn't come as a major shock.
Bader remains on the bench for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Braves on Monday.
Bader is a strong defensive option but hit just .205/.314/.366 on the season. The Cardinals will prioritize offense after scoring a combined one run over their last two games. Dexter Fowler slides to center field, with Tommy Edman moving out to right.

Bader went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs overall in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
Bader's fifth-inning solo blast put the Cardinals on the scoreboard for the first time on the night. The 25-year-old has reached safely in four of his last five games, leaving the yard twice over that stretch. However, even with that recent surge, Bader is still hitting just .200 in September heading into the last day of the regular season.
Bader is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
Bader will head to the bench for Wednesday's series finale as the Cardinals rest most of their regular starters following Tuesday's 19-inning loss. Randy Arozarena is starting in center field in place of Bader, who went 2-for-8 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's loss.
Bader went 2-for-3 with a run-scoring single, an RBI double and a walk in an extra-inning win over the Cubs on Thursday.
Bader came through with clutch hits on a pair of occasions, giving him 11 RBI through 18 games in September. The outfielder continues to have trouble making consistent contact, however, with his 25 strikeouts -- including at least one in each of his last 10 games -- helping lead to a pedestrian .233 average over 68 plate appearances during the month.
Bader is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.
Since his big two-homer game against the Brewers on Sunday, Bader has recorded just one hit while striking out five times in the first two games of the series with Washington, though he at least chipped in a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-2 loss. Bader looks poised to see regular run as St. Louis' top center fielder down the stretch, but he'll get a breather for the day game after night game.
Bader went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in a loss to the Brewers on Sunday.
Bader opened the scoring on the afternoon with his first round tripper and then extended the Cardinals' lead to 4-2 with his seventh-inning blast. The outfielder has gone deep thrice in the last four contests after a 16-game homer drought, and he's crossed the plate on six occasions overall during that stretch as well. Bader's September average still sits at an uninspired .234, but he's certainly showing signs of a resurgence with his recent power display.
Bader went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs overall in a win over the Rockies on Thursday.
Bader's impressive 450-foot blast to left in the fourth inning answered a Nolan Arenado round tripper in the home half of the third and extended the Cardinals' lead to 6-3. The 25-year-old hadn't left the yard since Aug. 24 prior to Thursday, a homer that coincidentally had also come against the Rockies, albeit at Busch Stadium. Despite having just eight hits thus far in September -- including a modest two for extra bases -- Bader has managed to drive in seven runs.
Bader went 2-for-4 with a run-scoring single, an RBI double, a walk and a stolen base in a win over the Pirates on Saturday.
Bader was highly productive out of the latter portion of the No. 8 spot in the order, with his well-balanced effort snapping a 1-for-16 slump that had encompassed his previous five games. The 25-year-old looked rejuvenated at the plate after his return from Triple-A Memphis in late August, and perhaps Saturday's resurgent effort will snap him out of the brief doldrums he'd been in.
Bader is not in Thursday's lineup against the Giants.
Bader should start against all lefties and some righties down the stretch, but he'll head to the bench in this one against righty Logan Webb. Randy Arozarena will start in center field and hit eighth.
Bader went 2-for-4 with a pair of run-scoring singles during the first game of a doubleheader against the Reds on Sunday.
Bader's pair of RBI hits were especially timely, with the first bringing the Cardinals to within a run at 3-2 in the seventh inning and the second delivering the winning run in the ninth. Bader has raised his season average 20 points to .215 since returning from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 20 by going 13-for-39 with two doubles, a triple, a home run, nine RBI, nine walks, a stolen base and 11 runs.

Bader is slashing .321/.457/.571 with one home run, one steal and a 7:5 BB:K in nine games since returning to the majors, but he'll head to the bench for the first game of Saturday's twin bill as the Cardinals go with an outfield consisting of Marcell Ozuna, Dexter Fowler and Tommy Edman.
Bader went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in win over the Brewers on Tuesday.
Bader helped give the Cardinals some valuable breathing room with his ninth-inning two-bagger, which plated Yadier Molina to extend the lead to 5-3 at the time. The outfielder is progressively clawing his way back to offensive respectability since his return from a sabbatical at Triple-A Memphis, as he's quickly boosted his season average 16 points to .211 by going 9-for-25 with two doubles, a triple, a home run, six RBI, seven walks, a stolen base and eight runs over his first eight games back at the big-league level.
Bader went 2-for-5 with a two-run ground-rule double and a run in a win over the Brewers on Monday.
Bader continues to carry over the improvement he displayed during his recent stint at Triple-A Memphis, as he's reached safely in all seven games since returning. Bader currently carries a four-game hitting streak, and Monday's multi-hit effort -- his first since July 3 -- vaulted his average back over the Mendoza Line for the first time since July 24.
Bader went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run homer in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Rockies.
It's his first big-league homer since June 8 and his seventh in 95 games for St. Louis this season. Bader hasn't exactly torn it up since getting recalled to the majors earlier this week, going 3-for-12 at the plate, but he's drawn seven walks in five games and two of the hits (a triple and Saturday's homer) have gone for extra bases.
Bader went 1-for-1 with a triple, a bases-loaded walk, two other base on balls and two runs in a win over the Brewers on Tuesday.
Called up from Triple-A Memphis earlier in the day, Bader immediately generated the same caliber of performance that he'd regularly proven capable of down on the farm during his brief demotion. The 25-year-old drew the start in center field Tuesday with left-hander Gio Gonzalez on the mound for the Brewers, and Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports Bader's playing time moving forward in a crowded outfield will be based on multiple factors. "He has earned the opportunity to come back, but we've also played well and guys have earned the opportunity to continue to play," manager Mike Shildt said. "I think what you'll continue to see is opportunities being based, not on production every night, but what's giving us the best chance to win baseball games."
Bader was recalled from Triple-A Memphis prior to Tuesday's game against the Brewers.
He figures to slot right into the lineup against lefty Gio Gonzalez. Bader was told to work on his approach at Triple-A, and while the results seem positive (.317/.427/.698, 16:8 K:BB, seven HR, three SB), it would have been surprising if he had struggled at all at a level he has already mastered. Randy Arozarena was banished to the minors in a corresponding move.
Although the team has yet to make an official announcement, Bader is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Memphis later Tuesday, Stu Durando and Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.
Rookie Randy Arozarena has been informed he'll be sent back to the Redbirds in a corresponding move after going 2-for-8 in his brief major-league tenure. Bader continued his torrid stretch down on the farm Monday night by slugging his seventh home run in 16 games with Memphis. Manager Mike Shildt recently praised Bader's approach regarding his temporary demotion, which came about when the outfielder's average sunk to .195 following an 0-for-4 showing against the Astros on July 28.
Bader, who went 3-for-6 with two home runs, three RBI and three runs overall in Triple-A Memphis' win over Iowa on Sunday, is hitting .375 (15-for-40) over his last 10 games with the Redbirds.
The stretch of torrid hitting includes three doubles, six homers, 12 RBI, five walks, two stolen bases and 16 runs. The success Bader has enjoyed seemingly indicates he's significantly improved the plate mechanics he was tasked with working on during his stint on the farm. With rosters about to expand Sept 1, it's possible Bader remains with the Redbirds until that point so as to continue affording him consistent playing time.
