Schumaker is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Schumaker has started in left field three of the last four games, but he'll take a seat Sunday, as manager Bryan Price will look to limit the left-handed bats in his lineup against opposing starter Jon Lester. The outfielder has reached base safely in back-to-back games, but remains a less-than-intriguing fantasy option, slashing .227/.313/.330 on the season.

Schumaker is out of the lineup Monday against the Phillies.

Schumaker made each of the last four starts in left field, likely indicating he will take over everyday duties for the most part until Marlon Byrd (wrist) returns from the disabled list. However, his lack of power and speed on the basepaths, combined with just a .236/.321/.361 batting line through 37 games this season doesn't make him an attractive fantasy option despite the additional playing time. Ivan De Jesus will start in left field in his place Monday, batting sixth for the Reds.

Schumaker will make his fourth straight start in left field Sunday against the Padres.

With Marlon Byrd (wrist) landing on the DL this past Wednesday, Schumaker has been able to claim a regular role for the Reds. Though he doesn't have many viable challengers for at-bats, Schumaker's limited power, lack of stolen-base prowess, and .221/.312/.338 batting line on the season make him more ideal for a utility role than an everyday starting gig.

Schumaker will start in left field and bat leadoff Sunday against the Braves, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Schumaker will get the start in favor of the slumping Billy Hamilton, and will man the leadoff role for the second time this season. He'll provide manager Brian Price with another left-handed bat in the lineup, and is 2-for-4 in his career against Sunday's starter, Julio Teheran.

Schumaker will replace Brandon Phillips (illness) in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Phillips was in the Reds' original lineup, but he was scratched due to an illness, so Schumaker will start Thursday for the first time since Apr. 19. He will man second base and hit seventh against Braves starter Shelby Miller.

Schumaker is starting in left field and batting leadoff for Sunday night's game in St. Louis.

Billy Hamilton is hurt and Marlon Byrd is off to a miserable start, so Schumaker and Brennan Boesch are both in the lineup. That is, if the game goes off as planned - the tarp is currently on the field and rain is in the forecast.
