Aybar is not in the starting lineup Saturday against Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar will get his second game off since the end of the All-Star break as Chase d'Arnaud fills in at shortstop, batting leadoff. Aybar will look to begin a second half comeback when he returns to the lineup as he's gone 5-for-42 (.119) over his last 13 games, lowering his season slash line to .208/.268/.263.

Aybar is not in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar will get a day of rest as Gordon Beckham makes his first start at shortstop since coming off the disabled list. Aybar has pulled things together following a rough stretch to start the season as he's slashed .307/.381/.427 over his last 22 games. The 32-year-old should see similar playing time going forward as Gordon Beckham's most frequented starts are at second and third base.

Aybar hit his first home run in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

After 64 games and 241 plate appearances, Aybar is finally on the board. He has reached double-digit home runs just once, in 2011, and shouldn't be expected to reach such lofty heights ever again. Still, his .226/.282/.286 line paints the profile of a hitter who has disappointed on every level.

Aybar is out of the lineup Monday against the Phillies, Kevin McAlpin of 680 AM The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

This would appear to be a routine day off for Aybar, who has finally started to dig himself out of a terrible start to the season. Since rejoining the Braves on June 12 following a stint on the disabled list due to a foot injury, Aybar is hitting .323 and owns a .405 on-base percentage.

Aybar went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI in a 13-inning win against the Reds on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Even Aybar's first three-hit performance of the year wasn't enough to drag his average over the Mendoza line, which he's been under since April 12, but hey, he's darn close at .199 now. It seems too early for Aybar to have declined as steeply as he has, but indeed, at the tender age of 32, he's already become useless in nearly all fantasy formats. Even his meager power is gone (no homers), and his speed has abandoned him too (2-for-5 on steals).

Aybar returned to action Wednesday against the Reds, hitting eighth and manning shortstop.

EDGE Analysis

He was scratched Tuesday with an undisclosed ailment, but made it back into the mix Wednesday. There are reasons to expect Aybar's .187 average to tick up as the season progresses -- namely a .227 BABIP (.301 for his career) -- but he is on pace for his lowest steals total since 2008 (just two in 46 games) and he has never been much of a power threat.

Aybar was scratched from the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds for undisclosed reasons, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

In Aybar's stead, Jace Peterson will step in at shortstop and will bat eighth. It's likely that there will be an update regarding Aybar's scratch in the near future.

Aybar (foot) was activated from the 15-day DL Sunday, MLB.com's Kevin McAlpin reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar suffered a bruised right foot when he was hit by a pitch in late-May, but he'll return to action after the 15-day minimum stay. The Braves will waste no time getting Aybar back into action, as he'll bat eighth in the order and start at shortstop Sunday against the Cubs, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Look for Aybar, who was 5-for-29 during a rehab stint, to see regular starts at shortstop moving forward.
