Mathis is in the lineup Friday against the Rockies for the third straight game and the seventh time in the last 10 contests.

EDGE Analysis

Mathis has clearly moved back ahead of Alex Avila in the pecking order. Even with an increased role, however, he remains an unappealing fantasy option, as he's hit just .211/.285/.286 on the season.

Mathis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Arizona was already comfortably ahead 7-0 in the eighth inning by the time Mathis deposited his first home run of the season, but it counts just the same. The 35-year-old will draw the occasional start behind the plate down the stretch, but he'll otherwise give way to Alex Avila.

After filling his normal role as the personal catcher for Zack Greinke and Patrick Corbin for the first two games of the series, Mathis will unsurprisingly retreat to the bench for the finale. Alex Avila will start behind the plate Sunday, catching for Clay Buchholz.
