This was kind of expected with the second day in a row off, but it's kind of a bummer. Just when the team was fully healthy, too. It looks like Brayan Peña will take over everyday duties there, with Todd Frazier and Jay Bruce mixed in. This team could probably use another guy who can play there, and a move to bring up Neftali Soto or Donald Lutz may not be far off.
