Valencia is in the lineup Tuesday against the Astros, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

After starting 10 consecutive games, Valencia had initially been out of Tuesday's lineup. However, Khris Davis was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with an illness, so Valencia will head to right field and hit cleanup against Joe Musgrove and the Astros.

Valencia went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer Saturday in a 11-2 win over Texas.

EDGE Analysis

Amid questions this week of whether he'd even remain on the Athletics roster the rest of the season, Valencia has proved himself valuable as the team has won five of its last six while averaging 10 runs a game. Valencia has totaled nine runs and has reached base 10 times over that period and is slashing .289/.347/.458 with 69 runs, 17 homers and 51 RBI on the season.

Valencia's roster spot is safe over the rest of the season, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

There were rumors that Valencia may suffer a similar fate as Billy Butler -- with the A's releasing him before the end of the season -- but apparently the team has decided to keep Valencia around for the final few weeks. He is in the lineup Tuesday, batting third against Royals lefty Danny Duffy. Valencia has put together a .291/.347/.461 line this season, but he's been a major negative in the field and it seems likely he will be non-tendered or traded this winter.

Valencia is out of the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

He sat out Wednesday and the A's were off Thursday, so the fact that he's not back in there Friday after starting nine games in a row prior to Wednesday raises a bit of a red flag that he is either banged up or his playing time situation is changing. Max Muncy will start in right field and bat seventh Friday.

Valencia is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia will get a rare day off after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's matchup with the Angels. Oakland will go with Max Muncy in right field, and he'll bat seventh in the order against right-hander Alex Meyer.

Valencia walked, scored twice, and hit a two-run home run in a 3-for-4 game Monday against he Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia had been struggling mightily since his altercation with teammate Billy Butler, with just a .194/.310/.250 batting line and no home runs in 12 games. He finally broke the home run drought Monday and added his 19th double as well. Power is Valencia's biggest asset (.470 SLG), and unless he's able to provide some pop, he won't bring much value to either the A's or a fantasy roster.
