Kendrick is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

It appears to be a day of rest for the 33-year-old utility man as Chase Utley mans second base and Andrew Toles takes over in left field. Kendrick is batting .280/.337/.463 throughout August and will likely be back in the lineup Sunday.

Kendrick is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Andrew Toles will get the nod to start in left field and bat eighth Sunday as Kendrick gets the day off. Kendrick has struggled at the plate in recent outings, having gone 0-for-13 over the Dodgers' last four games, bringing his batting average down to .273 for the season.

Kendrick had a huge day Tuesday, going 4-for-5 with a home run, a triple, and a pair of singles in a 15-5 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick was just a double shy of the cycle Tuesday, and had three RBI and a pair of runs scored to boot. The veteran second baseman has been on fire this past month, hitting .362 with five home runs and 21 runs scored over his past 30 games. The terrific stretch has raised Kendrick's batting average to .283 on the season, putting him roughly on pace for a career average year for him. The homer was Kendrick's eighth of the year, and he now has 34 RBI and 53 runs scored.

Kendrick went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-3 rout of the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick's two-run blast in the bottom of the second gave the Dodgers a 3-2 lead they would never relinquish, while his sixth-inning double just widened what was already a sizable gap with what ended up being the game's final run. The veteran showed his versatility in this one by returning to left field after making his last two starts at second base, and more offensive outbursts like this one will inspire the Dodgers to continue finding ways to get his bat in the lineup.

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.
