Kendrick went 1-for-6 with a solo shot Friday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick led off the sixth inning with his fifth home run of the season, tying the game 2-2. The blast also extended his hitting streak to 14 games which began back on July 4. Through 17 games this month, Kendrick is hitting .383 (26-for-68) with nine walks and 12 runs.

Kendrick went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a double and a run in Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran plated Scott Van Slyke with a second-inning single, bringing his current hitting streak to seven games. Kendrick has hit safely in nine of 10 July games overall, and has already raised his average 17 points in the new month. The extra-base hits are starting to come as well, as the 32-year-old's six doubles over the last 10 contests are already two more than he hit during the entire month of June, and just one less than he'd tallied all season prior to July.

Kendrick is out of the Dodgers' lineup Monday against the Orioles, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The day off will mark Kendrick's first since June 25, a span of nine games. In his stead, Will Venable will replace Kendrick in left field and bat eighth in the order.

Kendrick was 2-for-4 with a run and RBI in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick has gone 6-for-12 in his last four games and looks to be an everyday player for the moment, playing primarily in left field but also subbing in at second and third base. Given his history, it isn't unreasonable to assume that his .238 batting average will continue to rise if he gets regular playing time.

Kendrick is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jody Jackson of Fox Sports Arizona reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick will get the day off after going 1-for-12 over his past four games. The 32-year-old is having a career-worst season, hitting just .219/.276/.284 with two home runs, 20 runs, and 11 RBI. To put it in perspective, Kendrick has never finished with a batting average below .279 or an on-base percentage below .313 in his 10 seasons in the major leagues. There is still a lot of baseball to be played but Kendrick will need to pick up the slack immensely before he can be considered a viable fantasy option.

Kendrick is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Johnny Cueto starting for the Giants, manager Dave Roberts opted to sit his veteran utility man. Enrique Hernandez will get the start at left field, where Kendrick likely would have played.

Kendrick (shoulder) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has been out of the lineup since tweaking his shoulder Wednesday, but he'll make his return to the order for Saturday's matchup with Atlanta. He'll face Bud Norris, a pitcher he's gone just 2-for-16 against in his career.

Kendrick (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

After tweaking his left shoulder Wednesday, Kendrick was available only in "kind of a big spot" Thursday, according to manager Dave Roberts. He did not end up making an appearance Thursday and Kendrick will be forced to sit Friday, although there has been no indication to this point that he's worse off than day-to-day with the injury.

Kendrick was reportedly only available in "a big spot" in Thursday's game after suffering a minor shoulder injury Wednesday, David Vassegh of AM570 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps due in part to sporadic playing time, Kendrick is batting just .224/.266/.299 while splitting time among multiple positions. This shouldn't set him back much at all.

Kendrick is out of the lineup Monday against the Cubs, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

EDGE Analysis

Following four straight starts in left field, Kendrick will give way to Carl Crawford, who will get the rare starting nod. After going 0-for-4 Sunday night, manager Dave Roberts will give him a routine maintenance day, though he could be called upon to pinch hit if needed.
