Wallace went 2-for-3 with a solo shot, two RBI and scored twice Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace didn't start a game for the entire month until the Padres hit an AL park for the Jays series, and the DH spot opened the door for the first baseman. In the first two games, he went 0-for-6 with four strikeouts, but made sure he didn't leave town without putting something on the stat sheet. Unfortunately, his sixth home run of the year won't be enough to make up for his struggles this season, and he'll likely head back to the bench when the team returns home to open a weekend series for the Reds on Friday.

Wallace (paternity) was reactivated Thursday, Bob Scanlan of the Padres reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace will rejoin the team after missing the previous five games for paternity leave. The 29-year-old is just 2-for-11 with eight strikeouts in 11 games since the start of July. Alexi Amarista was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Wallace was placed on the paternity list Monday AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace has played in 15 of the last 19 games, hitting .231/.286/.346 with one home run and four RBI over that stretch. However, his last start was June 29 against the Nationals and he appears destined to continue as a reserve for the remainder of the season.

Wallace went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer Wednesday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace's fifth homer of the year came after the Padres were already trailing by seven runs in a game they'd eventually lose 12-6. Despite leaving the yard, he's struggled mightily in June, as he's only collected eight hits in 41 at-bats, and he's slashing .212/.350/.377 on the season.

Wallace is in the lineup and batting sixth for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Although Wallace owns a very solid .352 OBP, his fantasy value is much lower due to a .213 batting average and just four home runs, 11 RBI and 13 runs scored through 58 games this season. He will have a decent matchup with Ubaldo Jimenez (7.34 ERA) on the mound but is a risky play regardless.

Wallace is not in the lineup Saturday against Colorado, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace has seen game-action the last six games so he'll get a maintenance day as Alexi Amarista returns to the fold. Wallace will look to find his batter's eye when he likely returns to the lineup Sunday, as he's hitting .200 over his last 35 at bats with 12 strikeouts.

Wallace is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace had been getting the bulk of the starts at third base while Yangervis Solarte was on the disabled list, but with another mouth to feed in San Diego, he could be at risk of losing playing time. For Sunday afternoon, Solarte will get the starting nod at third base, while Alexi Amarista takes over at the keystone.

Wallace went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday at the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace's third homer of the season tied the game in the seventh inning in a game the Padres would eventually lose. He came into this contest in a 2-for-22 slump, so hopefully his multi-hit effort can turn things around for him. His slash line currently sits at .200/.358/.400.

Wallace is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace played the first game of the doubleheader so manager Andy Green is giving him the night off for Game 2. The Padres have a number of infielders on the DL right now so it makes sense they'd want to keep one of their everyday guys, like Wallace, as fresh as possible.

Wallace went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer, and a pair of RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Wallace's first home run of the season was just his sixth in 82 games with the Padres, yet he still found himself hitting cleanup behind Matt Kemp. The 29-year-old corner outfielder took advantage of the opportunity this time around, but he'll need to string together multiple strong performances if he wants to bat in that role on a regular basis.
