Sogard will enter the lineup Sunday against the Royals for the fourth game in a row.

Sogard's glove usually lends itself to at-bats, but he's not been a total drain at the plate this season, batting .254 with a .298 on-base percentage. Still, the lack of pop or stolen-base ability in his profile won't afford him much fantasy value even if his versatility allows him to hold down a regular role.

Sogard is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels.

Sogard has started six of the last seven games at second base, but will sit Sunday in favor of Ben Zobrist. Moving Zobrist to the keystone will allow manager Bob Melvin to use an outfield composed of Sam Fuld (left), Billy Burns (center) and Josh Reddick (right).

Sogard was the catalyst of Sunday's win over the Angels, finishing 2-for-5 with three RBI, a run scored, a double and a walk.

The 29-year-old also induced a throwing error that resulted in a run as he made the most of his first start in four games. Sogard is part of a crowded middle infield corps that includes Ben Zobrist, Marcus Semien and Brett Lawrie, but could carve out a more regular role with more impactful performances like this.
