Valencia is set to return to the lineup Tuesday against Cleveland, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Before sitting out Oakland's last two games, Valencia had been putting on a show at the plate. Over the previous seven games, Valencia posted a .462/.500/.654 line with one home run, two doubles, and four runs. He'll look to continue his dominance Tuesday when the A's go up against Danny Salazar and the Indians.

Valencia is out of the lineup for Monday's matchup against Cleveland, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia is out of the lineup for the second day in a row, and while it's now known that he had a fight with teammate Billy Butler, Valencia is available from the bench for Monday's game if need be. Ryon Healy will start at third and bat sixth during Valencia's absence.

Valencia is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia owns a superb .985 OPS against southpaws this season, so it's a bit surprising to see him on the bench against left-hander Jose Quintana. He has made six consecutive starts, however, so perhaps this is just a routine maintenance day.

Valencia went 2-for-5 with a walk and two RBI in Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday marked Valencia's third straight two-hit effort, and pushed the third baseman's average up to a team-high .296. After a big first half, Valencia's performance has dipped a bit since the All-Star break. Through the season's first three months, the 31-year-old batted a combined .324. However, he's just 30-for-123 (.244) since July 1, and his .370 slugging percentage post break is significantly lower than the .498 Valencia posted before the Midsummer Classic. Maybe his recent string of games is an indication that he's getting back on track as we head toward the home stretch of the fantasy season.

Valencia went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia's homer in the fourth inning was the third solo shot against Angels starter Ricky Nolasco. He was in right field again Thursday after sitting Wednesday in favor of Max Muncy. Manager Bob Melvin indicated that Valencia will remain in a part-time role even with the departure of Josh Reddick, as the team looks to get younger players at-bats with an eye toward the future.

Valencia is out of the lineup against the Angels on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia will be out of the lineup for the fourth time in the past six games during Wednesday's contest. There was some rumors that he could've been dealt around the deadline, which is one of the reasons he was out of the lineup more than usual. Max Muncy will get the start in right field for the A's on Wednesday, along with Yonder Alonso at first and Ryon Healy at third.

Valencia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Valencia is believed to be one of the better position players available for trade as Monday's non-waiver deadline approaches, so rather than risking him suffering an injury that would torpedo any deal, the A's will hold him out Sunday. With Valencia resting, Yonder Alonso will man first base and Ryon Healy will get another turn at third base.

Valencia is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

This will be the second consecutive game on the bench for Valencia after sitting out Wednesday's series finale against the Rangers. The 31-year-old doesn't have a concrete starting position, but has been playing almost every game for the A's since the early weeks of May. For Friday's game, Oakland will go with Billy Butler at DH and Yonder Alonso at first.

Valencia is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Despite giving up the third base job to Ryon Healy a couple weeks ago, the A's have still found ways to get Valencia in the lineup almost every day. However, Khris Davis will start at DH and Yonder Alonso will get the nod at first base Wednesday.
