News: Denorfia went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter Friday.
Impact: The Cubs are 14-4 in August, but they've done it without Denorfia, who has just 29 at-bats this month. The veteran is hitting just .186 since the All-Star break and has been all but forgotten during the Cubs' big run.
Rotowire: Jul 19 / 10:45a ET
News: Denorfia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Braves.
Impact: Denorfia has been seeing more consistent playing time of late, getting the start over Chris Coghlan in six of the last eight games. He'll sit in favor of Coghlan on Sunday afternoon, however, as manager Joe Maddon likely wants to get another left-handed bat in his lineup against tough righty Shelby Miller.
