De Aza might garner additional playing in center field due to Juan Lagares' thumb injury.

EDGE Analysis

De Aza has had a season to forget but righted the ship slightly lately. Lagares likely will need surgery to repair his thumb, leaving a hole in center field. Manager Terry Collins could turn to Michael Conforto but may elect to go for a more natural and experienced center fielder to man the position, which would be De Aza.

De Aza could see increased playing time soon, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Terry Collins appears to want to get De Aza in the lineup more, calling him "a good player." It is also expected that De Aza remains in the starting lineup Thursday to give Michael Conforto a day off, and will likely give Yoenis Cespedes some rest over the weekend. While it looks like De Aza is in line for a bigger role, it should be taken with a grain of salt as he still is a sub-par offensive player.

De Aza was 3-for-4 with a double and solo homer in Friday's 6-5 victory over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder impressively did his damage out of the nine-hole in the lineup. He extended his career-long success against right-handed pitching, homering in the fifth against Indians starter Cody Anderson. De Aza has managed a .331 w0BA and 41 homers of the course of his 10-year career versus righties, and that proficiency figures to earn him a fair share of starts this season.
