Hundley is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves.

He's hit safely in seven of eight games to begin July, with multiple hits in each of his last games, but he will get a day to rest his legs Saturday after four straight starts. Mike McKenry will catch and bat fifth against right-hander Matt Wisler.

Hundley went 3-for-4 with a double, RBI, and a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

The steal was Hundley's third of the season, a number that matches his total from the previous five seasons combined. It's surprising that he's been given the green light so frequently despite a poor 3-for-8 success rate on the bases, so don't expect many more contributions from Hundley in that category the rest of the way. Even so, Hundley should continue to uphold a respectable batting average by virtue of calling Coors Field his home park. The career .245 hitter is batting a stunning .299 on the season.

Hundley is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the A's, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old will head to the bench after back-to-back starts, as Mike McKenry takes over behind the plate against Chris Bassitt. Hundley has hit just one home run in June after smacking four in May, and his overall numbers have been inflated by a .330/.363/.557 batting line at Coors Field.

Hundley is out of Thursday's lineup, the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders reports.

Mike McKenry gets the start at catcher as the Rockies continue to go with a somewhat even split behind the plate, although Hundley has the slight edge in playing time at this point.

Hundley went 4-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI, three runs and his second stolen base of the season in a win over the Brewers on Sunday.

The 31-year-old backstop was impressive against the Brewers, driving doubles No. 10 and 11 deep into the gap. His stolen base was the result of a defensive miscue by shortstop Jean Segura, but it was still a nice surprise. With his performance Sunday, Hundley pushed his average back over .300 (.302), which could help him regain a larger share of the playing time -- he has been alternating starts with Mike McKenry of late.

Hundley is out of the lineup Thursday.

It's just a standard day off for Hundley, but Mike McKenry has slowly started to get more starts than he was seeing earlier in the season. Hundley should still be viewed as the primary catcher, but he may sit more than every fifth day going forward.

Hundley is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

He will turn over backstop duties to Mike McKenry after starting three straight games and nine of 12 to begin June. While Hundley is just 8-for-33 (.242 average) with two doubles so far this month, he still has a very respectable .291/.330/.442 batting line for the season and his primary role appears safe.
