Aybar went 2-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases in Wednesday's 13-7 loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old is still getting it done on the basepaths, reaching double-digit steals for the eighth time in his 12-year career. Aybar has started 13 of the 16 games he has appeared in since returning from the disabled list Sept. 1, providing deep-league value over that span (.278 with a home run and three steals).

Aybar 3-for-5 with a triple, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 10-6 win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran shortstop has started six of the Padres' last seven games despite the club being well out of contention. Aybar has gone 8-for-26 with three extra-base hits over that span, giving him deep-league appeal as long as he continues to see regular playing time.

Aybar will start at shortstop and bat second Monday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar was expected to see a reduced role in the final month of the season after being reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, but he'll earn a third consecutive start Monday after providing a two-run home run a day earlier. Yangervis Solarte has been a fixture in the lineup of late as a roving utility man, so in order to clear a regular spot for him, one of Aybar, second baseman Carlos Asuaje and third baseman Cory Spangenberg will likely sit out every contest. It will be Asuaje's turn to take a seat Monday, allowing Aybar to maintain his spot in the starting nine.

Aybar got the nod at short, going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar was able to get in the starting lineup on consecutive days due to Saturday's doubleheader and Cory Spangenberg's rest day on Sunday; he went 4-for-8 over that span. The majority of the 33-year-old's .234/.302/.364 slash line was accumulated as a starter at the beginning of the season, but he will likely be limited to a start or two per week as backup infielder down the stretch.

Aybar was brought off the bench Friday, failing to reach base in a 1-0 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

It was the veteran shortstop's first action since going on the disabled list with a broken foot July 22. The Padres' infield has become a little more crowded since Aybar was sidelined, so he will likely be used sparingly as the club takes a look at younger options in the final month of the season.

Aybar (foot) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

It isn't clear whether Aybar is ready for game action as of yet, or if the club made this move since keeping the shortstop on the disabled list has no real use now that rosters have expanded. He's been out since late July after fracturing his foot, and could remain sidelined for another couple weeks.

Aybar was diagnosed with a fractured foot Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears that Aybar will be sidelined for quite some time after fouling a ball off his foot during Friday's game. Initial reports suggest that the shortstop will likely miss the remainder of the season, though he could return in September in a best-case scenario. Allen Cordoba and the recently-promoted Dusty Coleman will handle shortstop duties in his absence.

Aybar (foot) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Andy Green had suggested this was likely after Aybar fouled a ball off his foot Friday. The Padres are expected to bring up another shortstop after Saturday's game to provide depth behind Allen Cordoba.

Aybar (foot) is likely headed to the 10-day disabled list, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move has not yet been made, but manager Andy Green indicated Aybar is DL-bound after fouling a ball off his foot during Friday's game. Allen Cordoba is starting at shortstop Saturday and it seems likely that he will see the bulk of the work there in Aybar's absence.

Aybar is out of the lineup Saturday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar has assumed the everyday role at shortstop in San Diego, starting 17 consecutive games at the position, but is mired in a tough slump over the past seven days, going just 3-for-25 in that span. The 33-year-old heads to the bench Saturday, allowing Allen Cordoba to get the start in his place.
