Loney is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old first baseman will get his first day off since the All-Star break while Wilmer Flores starts at first base in his place. Loney is having a solid season for the Mets in Lucas Duda's absence, hitting .284/.342/.439 with four home runs and 16 RBI.

Loney went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He continues to provide the Mets with a solid stick at first base, and Loney is now slashing .284/.342/.439 on the season. Lucas Duda (back) is only just beginning to resume baseball activities and hasn't yet been sent on a rehab assignment, so the starting job should remain Loney's for the foreseeable future.

Loney is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Washington, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Loney is getting a day off against lefty Gio Gonzalez as Wilmer Flores makes the start at first base and bats third. Loney is off to a modest start to the month, slashing .258/.343/.387 with six RBI in July.

Loney was a late add to Wednesday's lineup, the Star-Ledger's Maria Guardado reports.

EDGE Analysis

Asdrubal Cabrera was a late scratch, so Jose Reyes shifted to shortstop, Wilmer Flores shifted from first to third, and Loney got the start at first base. He is running out of time to get starts at first base, with Lucas Duda expected to return shortly after the All-Star break.

Loney is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Loney arrived at the time when the Mets were plagued by injuries at the corner infield spots, and has effectively started every game since May 31 for manager Terry Collins. The arrival of Jose Reyes to play third base may indirectly cause Loney to lose occasional starts, as former everyday third baseman Wilmer Flores will be called upon to play first at times, as is the case Wednesday afternoon. Loney has made his case with a respectable .291/.348/.465 slash line for the Mets, but as the team gets healthier, his fantasy value is poised to decrease.

Loney went 3-for-5 with a double, solo homer, three RBI and two runs in Friday's 10-2 victory over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran started the homer barrage against Jason Hammel with a second-inning blast, and has now hit safely in all but five games in his Mets tenure, which started on May 31. Loney has seen a recent power surge as well, having launched round-trippers in three of his last eight contests. The multi-hit effort Friday boosted his average 14 points, bringing his season line to .297/.345/.495.

Loney went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Wednesday at the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Loney's third bomb of the year got the Mets on the board in the ninth inning, and provided the team's only runs in a 4-2 loss. He's now hit safely in 15 of his last 17 games, and he's slashing .284/.336/.451.

Loney went 2-for-3 with a double, a three-run homer and three runs Friday at the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Loney's second blast of the year moved the Mets to an 8-0 lead, which ended up being huge, as they only wound up winning the game 8-6. He's now hit in 11 of his last 12 games, and he's slashing .305/.367/.463.

Loney went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 6-2 victory over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran's 100th career homer was a one-out, two-run blast off reliever Mike Dunn in the seventh inning that snapped a 2-2 tie. Loney, acquired last Saturday from the Padres, is expected to receive a solid dose of playing time at first base while Lucas Duda (back) remains sidelined. He hit seventh in the order Friday, but could potentially work his way upward in the lineup if he's able to produce.
