Aybar went 2-for-3 with his sixth home run in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Andy Green had been deploying a three-man rotation at short in the month of June, but a recent injury to Allen Cordoba (hand) opened up playing time for Aybar. The veteran has responded with a pair of home runs in three starts over the Padres' last four games. Overall, the 33-year-old has been disappointing (.221/.295/.354) at the plate, but a light power/speed combo (six homers and six steals) gives him value in very deep fantasy leagues while he is seeing semi-regular starts.

Aybar went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar, who has never hit more than 10 home runs in a major-league season, is already up to five this year in just 188 at-bats. The 33-year-old has also chipped in six steals, but his overall line leaves much to be desired (.218/.288/.340). His appeal is limited mostly to NL-only leagues.

Aybar went 2-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran got the start at short after sitting on the bench for San Diego's previous two contests. There appears to be a timeshare developing between he and Allen Cordoba (bats right-handed), but it isn't a traditional platoon as the switch-hitting Aybar got the start against a southpaw Wednesday. While the former offers a stronger bat in the lineup, the latter provides value to the club with solid defense up the middle. Chase d'Arnaud remains in the equation despite not starting lately. It would be best for deep-league owners to take in a larger sample size before deciding if any of the Padres' shortstops can settle into a regular role.

Aybar is not in the lineup Monday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar will head to the bench after collecting three straight starts at shortstop. Allen Cordoba will draw the start at shortstop in his stead, and if Aybar could eventually lose his job to the younger Cordoba if he doesn't pick it up at the plate moving forward.

Aybar will start at shortstop and bat seventh Sunday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar seems to have wrestled the starting gig at shortstop away from Chase d'Arnaud, who has supplied a .206 on-base percentage while striking out in 12 of his 33 at-bats since being claimed off waivers in late May. With a .283 on-base percentage of his own on the season, Aybar hardly profiles as much of an upgrade over d'Arnaud, so it wouldn't be surprising if manager Andy Green eventually turned the position over to a younger, higher-upside option like Allen Cordoba.

Aybar is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Chase d'Arnaud is set to take over at shortstop Friday as Aybar gets the night off against right-hander German Marquez. Aybar has struggled from both sides of the plate this season and is slashing a paltry .196/.271/.314 on 153 at-bats. Even when he's in the lineup, Aybar has little fantasy value besides being a low-end option in daily formats.

Aybar is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the third game in a row that Aybar will head to the bench for. There hasn't been any indication of injury at this point, so it appears the Padres could simply be shying away from his .196/.273/.311 triple slash.

Aybar is not in the lineup Monday against the Cubs, Bob Scanlan of Fox Sports San Diego reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar will take a seat for the second straight game as the Padres will go with Chase d'arnaud at shortstop again. There hasn't been any indication of injury, so the Padres may just be going with d'Arnaud again given his 2-for-4 showing in Sunday's contest.

Aybar is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar isn't necessarily known for his offensive prowess, but he's been particularly poor in his last four games, going 0-for-11 to bring his average down to .196. The Padres will instead turn to Chase d'Arnaud at shortstop for the second time in four contests.

Aybar is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mets, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar is batting below the Mendoza Line over the past week, so he'll get a night off to regain his bearings. Chase d'Arnaud will take his place at shortstop for the evening.
