News: Saltalamacchia is not in the lineup Thursday against the Reds, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Impact: Saltalamacchia will be on the bench for the second straight game in light of his recent struggles. It seems like it's just an effort by manager Mike Redmond to give Saltalamacchia an extended mental break, as Jeff Mathis isn't viewed as a threat to usurp him of his full-time duties.(RotoWire, )

News: Saltalamacchia launched a solo home run, his only hit in five at-bats, during Monday's win over the Braves. Impact: Despite four strikeouts, Salty's 10th homer was good enough to carry the Marlins into extra innings and set the stage for a 10th-inning victory over their division rivals. Batting just .225/.325/.403, Saltalamacchia's bat has shown signs of life since the All-Star break. The catcher is 4-for-12 in his past three games but has also stuck out seven times over that span with just one walk. Saltalamacchia needs to show improved patience at the plate to have an offensive impact down the stretch.(RotoWire, )
