Dominguez isn't in the lineup Tuesday against the Athletics, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Dominguez last tallied a hit on Aug. 20, a span of 13 at-bats, which has pushed his slash line to a miserable .223/.262/.344 on the season. He'll hand over the hot corner to Gregorio Petit, who is batting ninth.

Dominguez is not in the lineup Saturday, the Houston Chronicle's Jose de Jesus Ortiz reports.

Gregorio Petit will get a rare start at the hot corner, as Dominguez is given a standard day off. He is one of several Astros (other than Chris Carter and Jose Altuve) who have not lived up to the starting role they've been given this season, and his long-term future with the team is probably still up in the air. His .226/.266/.349 slash line makes him unusable in standard leagues that count batting average or OBP.

Dominguez is out of the lineup Saturday at Boston, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Matt Dominguez drove in four runs and finished 3-for-5 as the Astros defeated the White Sox on Sunday.

Dominguez entered the contest having driven in only two runs in his previous 18 contests. He singled in a run in the third inning, belted a two-run home run in the fifth, and doubled in a run in the seventh. Quite the productive day for the third baseman, who has otherwise had a forgettable season. Dominguez is slashing .239/.286/.375 with 12 home runs and 43 RBI.
