Description: Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge is out of the lineup again Tuesday due to an illness.
Insight: He was scratched from Monday's lineup and isn't ready to return. Rutledge has done a good job filling in for Troy Tulowitzki since Tulo suffered a hip flexor strain on July 19. He's gone 13-for-34 (.382) with four doubles, a triple, a homer and nine RBI since he replaced Tulowitzki in that game.
Josh Rutledge, 2B, COLHot7/29/2014 11:16:00 AM
Description: The Rockies scratched Josh Rutledge from Monday's lineup due to illness and he is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Chicago Cubs.
Insight: Rutledge has done a good job filling in for Troy Tulowitzki since Tulo suffered a hip flexor strain on July 19. He's gone 13-for-34 (.382) with four doubles, a triple, a homer and nine RBI since he replaced Tulowitzki in that game.
Aaron Hill, 2B, ARI7/29/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill didn't start Monday against the Reds, but did enter the game as a pinch hitter.
Insight: He's batted .400 (16-for-40) with six doubles and two homers in his last 11 games and should be back in the starting lineup Tuesday.
Josh Rutledge, 2B, COLHot7/28/2014 10:53:00 PM
Description: The Rockies scratched Josh Rutledge from Monday's lineup due to illness, according to Thomas Harding of mlb.com.
Insight: Rutledge has done a good job filling in for Troy Tulowitzki since Tulo suffered a hip flexor strain on July 19. He's gone 13-for-34 (.382) with four doubles, a triple, a homer and nine RBI since he replaced Tulowitzki in that game.
Scooter Gennett, 2B, MIL7/28/2014 6:50:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is in the lineup Monday.
Insight: Gennett (.305, 8 HR, 34 RBI) felt good during running drills Sunday morning, but the Brewers gave him one more day off, his fifth in a row, to rest his strained quad.
Aaron Hill, 2B, ARIHot7/28/2014 6:49:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill is out of Monday's lineup against the Reds.
Insight: Hill was hit by a pitch Saturday. It's unfortunate timing, as he's batted .410 (16-for-39) with six doubles and two homers in his last 10 games.
Chase Utley, 2B, PHI7/28/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is not in Monday night's starting lineup versus Bartolo Colon and the Mets.
Insight: No injury, just a routine day off for the 35-year-old after playing 10 consecutive games since the All-Star break. He's batting .291 with eight homers, 50 RBI and 54 runs. Reid Brignac will get the start and he's 5-for-12 (.417) against Colon.
Philip Gosselin, 2B, ATL7/28/2014 10:32:00 AM
Description: Just called up Phil Gosselin will make his first start at 2B this season against San Diego Monday.
Insight: He was batting .344 with a .866 OPS at Triple-A Gwinnett. The Braves have used Dan Uggla (now in San Francisco), Tommy La Stella, Ramiro Pena and Tyler Pastornicky at second base this season.
Jedd Gyorko, 2B, SDP7/27/2014 8:41:00 PM
Description: Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko (plantar fasciitis) is expected to come off the disabled list Monday, according to Corey Brock of mlb.com.
Insight: Plantar fasciitis has kept Gyorko out since June 4. The 25-year-old will return to a .162 average, five homers, 24 RBI and a .483 OPS after hittting .249 with 23 homers in 486 at-bats as a rookie.
Jose Altuve, 2B, HOUHot7/27/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Houston second baseman Jose Altuve hit his second home run in seven games Sunday against Miami.
Insight: Altuve went 3-for-4 and leads the majors with 148 hits and a .344 average. He also stole his 42nd base Sunday. Altuve has surprisingly emerged as fantasy's top second baseman this year.
Scooter Gennett, 2B, MIL7/27/2014 12:33:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is expected to return from his quad injury on Monday. SOURCE: Tom Haudricourt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: Gennett (.305, 8 HR, 34 RBI) felt good during running drills Sunday morning, but the Brewers will give him one more day off, his fifth in a row, to rest his strained quad.
Aaron Hill, 2B, ARIHot7/27/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill is out of Sunday's lineup against the Phillies with a bruised right hand.
Insight: Hill was hit by a pitch Saturday. It's unfortunate timing, as he's batted .410 (16-for-39) with six doubles and two homers in his last 10 games and has great numbers against Sunday's starter Roberto Hernandez.
Scooter Gennett, 2B, MIL7/26/2014 3:43:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is not in Saturday's starting lineup against the NY Mets.
Insight: Gennett exited Tuesday's game due to tightness in his right quadriceps and hasn't played since. He's batting .305 with eight homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs, six steals and an .824 OPS this season.
Jason Kipnis, 2B, CLE7/26/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis is 10-for-17 with two home runs against Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie.
Insight: Kipnis hasn't been hitting well over the past two weeks, batting just .171 over the last 10 contests. Kipnis is hitting .247 with five home runs, 31 RBI, 38 runs and a .677 OPS, but he's a good play Saturday.
Aaron Hill, 2B, ARIHot7/25/2014 10:50:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill has hit safely in nine straight games.
Insight: Hill has gone 15-for-36 with six doubles, two homers and five RBI during that span. He's reportedly on the trade block, so he's doing a good job to up his value.
Ben Zobrist, 2B, TAM7/25/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay second baseman Ben Zobrist bounced back from a 0-for-12 stretch with four hits in four at-bats Friday night against the Red Sox.
Insight: Since June 25, Zobrist has gone 31-for-94 (.330) with six doubles, two triples, two homers, 13 RBI and 14 runs in 24 games. His numbers on the season still aren't impressive, but his versatility (2B/SS/OF) gives him extra fantasy value.
Marco Scutaro, 2B, SFG7/25/2014 7:30:00 PM
Description: Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro is back on the disabled list due to a strained lower back.
Insight: Scutaro missed the entire season prior to July 12 while recovering from a chronic back injury and he took just 11 at-bats before going down again. Dan Uggla and Tony Abreu have been called up to split time at second base.
Dee Gordon, 2B, LOS7/25/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon is just 1-for-16 against Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum.
Insight: Gordon leads the league with 45 steals and is batting .294 with 54 runs scored, but this matchup should probably be avoided.
Scooter Gennett, 2B, MIL7/24/2014 4:28:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is not in Thursday's starting lineup against the NY Mets.
Insight: Gennett exited Tuesday's game due to tightness in his right quadriceps and didn't play Wednesday. He sat out Sunday's game for the same reason, though he was able to pinch hit. He's batting .305 with eight homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs, six steals and an .824 OPS this season.
Joe Panik, 2B, SFG7/24/2014 11:07:00 AM
Description: Giants second baseman Joe Panik is not in Thursday's starting lineup due to a sprained right ankle.
Insight: Panik has not proven that he can hit major league pitching, batting just .210 with a .507 OPS therefore this shouldn't change any lineups. Ehire Adrianza will start but he doesn't have any fantasy value either.
Scooter Gennett, 2B, MIL7/24/2014 11:04:00 AM
Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is questionable for Thursday's game against the NY Mets.
Insight: Gennett exited Tuesday's game due to tightness in his right quadriceps and didn't play Wednesday. He sat out Sunday's game for the same reason, though he was able to pinch hit. He's batting .305 with eight homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs, six steals and an .824 OPS this season.
Dustin Pedroia, 2B, BOSCold7/24/2014 10:36:00 AM
Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia is not in Thursday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Pedroia has just one hit over the past five games (20 AB) so we like him getting a day off. Being a .269 hitter with four homers, 37 RBI and 50 runs is well below expectations for the former AL MVP.
Jose Altuve, 2B, HOU7/24/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Hot-hitting Houston second baseman Jose Altuve is a career .091 hitter (1-for-11) versus Oakland starter Jeff Samardzija.
Insight: The diminutive Altuve still leads the AL in hits (139), stolen bases (41) and batting average (.337), but this is an unfavorable matchup.
Josh Rutledge, 2B, COLHot7/23/2014 7:58:00 PM
Description: Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge has gone 8-for-20 with two doubles, a triple and a homer since Troy Tulowitzki left Saturday's game with a strained hip.
Insight: Tulowitzki was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, opening up the starting job for Rutledge. Rutledge is batting .302 with an .842 OPS in 126 at-bats this season and should be owned in most leagues. Tulo isn't guaranteed to be back when his 15 days are up.
Dustin Pedroia, 2B, BOSCold7/23/2014 12:26:00 PM
Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia doesn't have good numbers against Toronto's R.A. Dickey.
Insight: Pedroia is 2-for-15 (.133) against Dickey. He's also batting .150 (6-for-40) with one extra-base hit over his last 10 games and has collected just three extra-base hits and zero home runs in his last 27 contests.
Jason Kipnis, 2B, CLE7/23/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis is 6-for-11 with three triples in his career against Minnesota's Anthony Swarzak.
Insight: Swarzak is making his first start since 2012 Wednesday afternoon against the Indians. Kipnis has had a disappointing season, batting .254 with five home runs, 30 RBI, 38 runs and a .698 OPS, but he's a good play Wednesday.
Neil Walker, 2B, PITHot7/22/2014 10:56:00 PM
Description: Pirates second baseman Neil Walker homered for the fourth time in his last 10 games Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Walker is now one home run away from tying his career high of 16. He's batting .286 with 48 RBI, 46 runs and an .831 OPS in 325 at-bats this season. Among second basemen, only Brian Dozier has more home runs.

Description: Cubs infielder Arismendy Alcantara wnt 1-for-4 with a solo homer Tuesday against the Padres.
Insight: Darwin Barney was designated for assignment on Tuesday, so Alcantara have a starting spot for the remainder of 2014. He batted .307 with 46 extra-base hits (10 HR) and 21 steals in 335 at-bats for Triple-A Iowa before his call-up and has hit .282 with two home runs, seven RBI and three steals in 39 at-bats so far.
Scooter Gennett, 2B, MIL7/22/2014 9:50:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett exited Tuesday's game due to tightness in his right quadriceps, according to Adam McCalvy of mlb.com.
Insight: Gennett sat out Sunday's game for the same reason, though he was able to pinch hit. He's batting .305 with eight homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs, six steals and an .824 OPS this season.
Arismendy Alcantara, 2B, CHCHot7/22/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Cubs infielder Arismendy Alcantara has hit .286 with four doubles, a triple, a homer, six RBI, three steals and seven runs in eight games since his promotion.
Insight: Darwin Barney was designated for assignment on Tuesday, so Alcantara will be Chicago's starting second baseman for the remainder of 2014. He batted .307 with 46 extra-base hits (10 HR) and 21 steals in 335 at-bats for Triple-A Iowa before his call-up.
Jose Altuve, 2B, HOUHot7/22/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Hot-hitting Houston second baseman Jose Altuve is a career .462 hitter (6-for-13) versus Oakland left-hander Scott Kazmir.

Darwin Barney, 2B, CHC7/22/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Cubs backup second baseman Darwin Barney isn't getting regular playing time these days, but could get a rare start Tuesday in a favorable matchup.
Insight: Arismendy Alcantara has been starting most of the time at second base. Barney is a career 6-for-12 with five extra-base hits versus Padres left-hander Eric Stults.
Dustin Pedroia, 2B, BOSCold7/22/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia is just 6-for-36 with a lone double over his last nine games and hitless in the past three contests.
Insight: The "Laser Show" hasn't done much over the first half of the season and fantasy owners are likely growing concerned. Contrary to his career numbers, Pedroia has been better on the road than in Fenway this season.
Marco Scutaro, 2B, SFG7/22/2014 10:04:00 AM
Description: Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro is just 1-for-9 this season after missing the first three months due to back problems, but has a favorable matchup Tuesday against Roberto Hernandez.

Insight: Cano sat out Sunday due to hamstring tightness. He's batted .414 in July and .335 this season.
Dee Gordon, 2B, LOS7/21/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon is just 1-for-10 with five strikeouts against Pittsburgh starter Edinson Volquez.
Insight: Gordon leads the league with 44 steals and is batting .296 with 53 runs scored, but this matchup should probably be avoided.
Robinson Cano, 2B, SEAHot7/21/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano was out of Sunday's lineup with hamstring tightness, but is probable for Monday's game against the NY Mets.
Insight: The second baseman has batted .414 in July. Cano has batted .335 average with 57 RBI, 49 runs and seven steals this season. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned by the leg injury except that he may not steal bases for a while.
Scooter Gennett, 2B, MIL7/21/2014 10:24:00 AM
Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is probable for Monday's game against Cincinnati due to tightness in his quadriceps.
Insight: Gennett pinch hit Sunday afternoon, so fantasy owners should expect his return. He's been a huge surprise, batting .308 with eight homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs and an .834 OPS in 87 games.
Jose Altuve, 2B, HOUHot7/20/2014 5:55:00 PM

Insight: Power is just about the only thing the 5-foot-5 Altuve hasn't provided this season. He's batted .336 with an MLB-leading 135 hits, 30 doubles, two triples, 51 runs and 41 steals, but has just three home runs.
Kolten Wong, 2B, STLHot7/20/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has batted .361 with five home runs and three steals in July (10 games), but he's out of the lineup Sunday.

Insight: Cano has made up for his lack of power (7 HR) with a .335 average, 57 RBI, 49 runs and seven steals this season. He's dealt with the hamstring injury sporadically this season, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned. The second baseman has batted .414 in July.

Insight: Kinsler has two five-game hitting streaks this month, but is hitless in the last two games and doesn't have a good matchup here.
