Iannetta is not in the lineup against the Dodgers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Jeff Mathis will handle the catching duties yet again as the Diamondbacks begin their NLDS with the Dodgers on Friday night. Although Iannetta didn't start the wild-card game Wednesday either, he remains the top option for Arizona behind the plate, and will likely be back in the starting nine for Saturday's matchup.

Iannetta is out of the lineup against the Rockies on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Iannetta will retreat to the bench for Wednesday's wild-card game as Jeff Mathis draws the start with batterymate Zack Greinke taking the mound. The 34-year-old backstop will be available off the bench and will likely step in as a pinch hitter if the situation arises.

Iannetta went 1-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 14-2 demolition of Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Iannetta came in slashing .295/.396/.526 against left-handed pitching, so it's not surprising that he was able to take southpaw Jason Vargas deep in his first at-bat. The 34-year-old catcher's surprisingly significant contributions are one of many reasons why Arizona was able to lock down home field advantage for Wednesday's Wild Card game against the Rockies.

Iannetta is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The Diamondbacks clinched home-field advantage for the NL wild-card game, so he'll get the day off as Arizona rests most of its starters. In his place, John Ryan Murphy will start behind the dish.

Iannetta went 3-for-4 with a walk, two home runs and eight RBI in Friday's 13-11 win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The eight RBI were a career high for the catcher. Iannetta's enjoying a big September, slashing .333/.448/.583 in 15 games with three homers and 10 RBI, and he should continue seeing the bulk of the work behind the plate for Arizona over the final days of the season.

Iannetta went 3-for-4 in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

It was the second three-hit showing in three starts for Iannetta, who has raised his production while taking on a greater share of the catching duties since fellow backstop Jeff Mathis fractured his right hand Aug. 21. In his 18 appearances since that date, Iannetta has gone 21-for-61 (.344 average) and has reached base at a .459 clip.

Iannetta is not in the lineup Friday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Iannetta receives a standard day off for maintenance after going 3-for-5 with two doubles during Thursday's victory over Colorado. In his place, Chris Herrmann will handle the catching duties for the series opener.

Iannetta went 3-for-5 with two doubles in Thursday's 7-0 win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old Iannetta's .249/.352/.498 season batting line doesn't jump off the page, but he's looked like a top-tier fantasy catcher when the team has deployed him in the No. 2 spot in the batting order. Over 61 at-bats in the two hole, Iannetta is slashing an impressive .328/.438/.541, offering Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo little reason to push the catcher down from that spot, even with outfielder A.J. Pollock heating up of late and making a case for more prominent slotting in the order.
