Suzuki is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will head to the bench following five straight starts as Juan Centeno steps in to catch for Kyle Gibson. Suzuki is hitting well over .300 since the start of June, pushing his season line to .284/.322/.422, and at the catcher position where it's hard to find net-positive players, that's nothing to scoff at.

Suzuki is not in the lineup Saturday against Cleveland, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki will get a day of rest as Juan Centeno gets the nod behind the dish. Suzuki was on fire entering the All-Star break, slashing .431/.463/.686 with 11 runs and 13 RBI between June 21 and July 10.

Suzuki went 3-for-5 with a two-RBI double and two runs in Sunday's 15-5 victory over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old backstop's turnaround at the plate has been nothing short of amazing, with Suzuki slashing .400/.423/.640 in July. This month's stellar numbers follow a month of June in which he generated a .370/.395/.589 line, and he's now raised his average a total of 103 points in just under two months. Suzuki also has multiple RBI in three of the last four contests, and multi-hit efforts in four of the last five. The Twins and his fantasy owners will certainly hope that the All-Star break doesn't cool off the surprisingly hot veteran.

Suzuki is out of the lineup Monday against the Athletics, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Twins manager Paul Molitor didn't want to have Suzuki get behind the plate for two day games in a row, so Juan Centeno will be called upon to serve as the catcher for the Fourth of July affair. Look for Suzuki to reclaim starting duties Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki will get a day off after starting the past four games. In his place, Juan Centeno will get the start behind the plate, batting eighth. Suzuki has been crushing the ball recently, as he hit .370 in the month of June and will likely be back in the lineup for Sunday's contest.
