Heredia will start in center field and bat seventh Sunday against the Brewers.
Heredia saw a streak of 30 consecutive starts come to an end in Saturday's 8-1 win, but he'll re-enter the lineup Sunday with Atlanta holding out the lefty-hitting Joc Pederson against Milwaukee southpaw Brett Anderson. While manager Brian Snitker could still use Heredia regularly against left-handed pitching, the 30-year-old could be the odd man out versus right-handed pitching if Atlanta is willing to play Pederson in center field, as it did Saturday. Trade-deadline pickups Jorge Soler and Adam Duvall will man the corner spots in most games, leaving no room in the lineup for Heredia or Abraham Almonte.
Heredia went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets.
Heredia doubled to lead off the top of the third inning and was driven home by Joc Pederson, who laced a double of his own to right field (106.6 mph exit velocity). Monday's multi-hit performance was Heredia's first since July 18. He's scuffled at the dish over 20 games this month, going 13-for-72 (.181 average) with three RBI and eight runs scored in 20 contests.
Heredia went 1-for-3 with two walks and three runs Saturday in Atlanta's 15-3 win over the Phillies.
The three runs nearly matched Heredia's total (four) from his other 17 games in July combined. After Ender Inciarte was activated from the COVID-19 injured list and designated for assignment Saturday, Heredia remains locked in as Atlanta's everyday center fielder. He'll start his 24th consecutive game in the series finale Sunday, batting seventh for Atlanta.
Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays.
Heredia remains entrenched as Atlanta's top center fielder ahead of Ender Inciarte, but the former's ongoing slide at the plate has resulted in a move down the batting order. After going 2-for-29 over his last eight starts to drop his season average to .247, Heredia will hit eighth for the first time since June 25.
Heredia went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Friday's 3-2 win over the Reds.
His seventh-inning blast off Vladimir Gutierrez proved to be the winning run. Heredia continues to give Atlanta a reliable presence in the outfield, and the 30-year-old is slashing .269/.359/.478 through 45 games with four homers, 15 RBI and 25 runs.
Heredia (wrist) is starting in center field and batting eighth Friday against the Reds.
Heredia was available off the bench to past two games while managing inflammation in his right wrist, and he struck out in his lone plate appearance. The 30-year-old is 8-for-23 with a homer, four doubles, five walks, three RBI and six runs in his past 10 games, and he'll look to pick up where he left off now that he's healthy.
Heredia (wrist) isn't starting Thursday against the Reds but is available to pinch hit, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Heredia will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game due to right wrist inflammation, but he'll be available off the bench once again. It's not yet clear whether he could be ready to return to the lineup Friday.

Heredia has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Mets due to right wrist inflammation.
The severity of the wrist issue isn't clear at this point, but Heredia can be considered day-to-day for the time being. Ender Inciarte will start in center field and bat eighth Tuesday.
Heredia is out of the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Cardinals.
Though he'll give way to Ender Inciarte in the front end of the twin bill, Heredia appears to have taken back the reins of primary duties in center field. Heredia started at the position in each of Atlanta's last five games, going 8-for-16 with a home run, four doubles, three walks, six runs and three RBI. He was also hit by two pitches, bringing his on-base percentage up to a monstrous .619 over that five-game stretch.
Heredia went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and an additional run scored in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals.
Heredia took John Gant deep with two outs in the fifth inning for the first run of the game. It was his only long ball this season other than his two-homer game April 18. In addition, he added a leadoff double in the seventh inning and scored. The 30-year-old is slashing .275/.360/.467 with three homers, 14 RBI and 24 runs in 136 plate appearances. He is not a great fantasy option with his limited power and lack of speed.
Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Heredia is making his third consecutive start and is in the lineup for the second straight game against a right-handed pitcher, with that usage seemingly indicating that he's retaken control of primary center-field duties from Ender Inciarte. Other than a two-homer, six-RBI game against the Cubs back on April 18, Heredia's box-score lines have typically been empty this season. He has no home runs and seven RBI across his other 36 games.
Heredia remains on the bench for Friday's game against the Marlins.
Heredia started 10 games in a row over a stretch which began back in late May, but he now finds himself on the bench for the third time in five games. Ender Inciarte will start in center field in his absence.
Heredia is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.
Ender Inciarte will get the nod in center field in place of Heredia, who has been serving as Atlanta's main option at the position with starts in 12 of the team's previous 13 games. During that stretch, Heredia hit .163 with two extra-base hits (both doubles), six runs and one RBI.
Heredia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
Heredia will get a breather in the series finale after starting in the outfield 15 of Atlanta's last 16 games, during which he slashed .231/.259/.327 with eight runs and three RBI across 52 at-bats. While his spot in Atlanta's everyday lineup appears to be secure for now, Heredia's lack of pop and speed and low placement in the batting order limit his fantasy appeal.
Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Tuesday against the Red Sox.
Even with Atlanta reinstating Ender Inciarte (personal) from the paternity list Thursday, Heredia has retained the top job in center field, at least until Cristian Pache returns from the injured list. Heredia, who produced four hits over the weekend during Atlanta's series with Pittsburgh, will pick up his fourth start in the five games since Inciarte has returned to the active roster.
Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Mets.
Heredia will pick up his third straight start after going 1-for-3 with a double in both of the first two games of the series with the Mets. The 30-year-old will likely move back into a short-side platoon role in center field when Ender Inciarte (personal) returns from the paternity list during Atlanta's upcoming four-game series with the Pirates.
Heredia (hamstring) was activated from the injured list Saturday and will bat eighth and play center field against the Brewers.
Starts are available in center field with Cristian Pache out with a hamstring injury of his own. Heredia and Ender Inciarte figure to split time at the position for now, with a relatively even split to be expected, per David O'Brien of The Athletic.
Heredia was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with right hamstring inflammation, retroactive to April 30.
Heredia wasn't in the lineup for Friday's series opener against Toronto, and he'll miss additional time due to a hamstring issue. Cristian Pache was recalled in a corresponding move and could see playing time in center field while Heredia is sidelined.
